During postnatal care and resuscitation of newborn and pre-term babies the first minutes after birth are decisive. There must be available all the equipment to clear the airway, to apply oxygen or even to ventilate the baby if necessary. Above all, however, the baby requires warming in order to adapt to the new environment. The infant care system VARIOTHERM REA-KCE has been specifically designed for these conditions, allowing full access for the procedures to be carried out in this situation. The infant care system is equipped with an under-pad heating device and an infra-red radiant warmer. Upgraded with specific accessories it can be used for the warming therapy or intensive care of pre-term babies.
