  • Patent number: 10966890
    Abstract: A warming device configured to warm an infant. The warming device includes a base that supports the infant and an overhead portion that includes an enclosure. An arm is coupled to the base and to the overhead portion. The arm supports the overhead portion above the base. A heating element is operated to generate heat to warm the infant. The overhead portion includes the heating element. A portion of the heat is dissipated into the overhead portion as a waste heat. A warming blanket has a stored state and a deployed state. In the stored state, the warming blanket is at least partially inside the overhead portion. In the deployed state, the warming blanket is outside the overhead portion. The warming blanket is designed to store the waste heat when the warming blanket is in the stored state and to warm the infant when in the deployed state.

  • Patent number: 10688003
    Abstract: An infant care station that includes multiple operational modules that communicate with each other to carry out the infant care station functions. The multiple modules form part of a micro-environmental platform that allows for communication and power connections between all of the operational components required within the infant care station. The multiple modules communicate with each other utilizing a universal interface bus that includes power connections, communication connections and control connections between the multiple modules. Sensor data obtained by various sensors is stored using a standard data format. A data repository is included in one of the modules and is used to store sensor data obtained from the infant patient, operational protocols and other information needed to operate the infant care station. The data repository provides a central location for both data producers and data subscribers that are part of the micro-environment platform.

  • Patent number: 10052029
    Abstract: A patient transfer device is utilized to transport infant patients between locations within a hospital environment. The patient transfer device includes a center, support section and a pair of side sections that can be moved into contact with each other to surround the infant patient. The first and second side sections each include a handle that can be brought into close proximity to each other and can be grasped by a single hand of a clinician. The patient transfer device includes a temperature sensor positioned to provide a temperature measurement of the patient when the patient is received on the patient transfer device. The patient temperature can be displayed on either an integrated display or wirelessly transmitted to an external display device. In this manner, the temperature of the infant can be continuously monitored during transport.

  • Patent number: 9839563
    Abstract: A patient transfer device is utilized to transport infant patients between locations within a hospital environment. The patient transfer device includes a center, support section and a pair of side sections that can be moved into contact with each other to surround the infant patient. The first and second side sections each include a handle that can be brought into close proximity to each other and can be grasped by a single hand of a clinician. The patient transfer device includes a heart rate sensor positioned to provide a heart rate measurement of the patient when the patient is received on the patient transfer device. The patient heart rate can be displayed on either an integrated display or wirelessly transmitted to an external display device. In this manner, the heart rate of the infant can be continuously monitored during transport.

  • Patent number: 9629759
    Abstract: A patient transfer device is utilized to transport infant patients between locations within a hospital environment. The patient transfer device includes a center support section and a pair of side sections that can be moved into contact with each other to surround the infant patient. The first and second side sections each include a handle that can be brought into close proximity to each other and can be grasped by a single hand of a clinician. The patient transfer device includes an integrated vapor barrier that can be positioned to at least partially surround the infant when the infant is received on the patient transfer device to reduce evaporative cooling of the infant. The vapor barrier includes a support structure to create a canopy that holds the vapor barrier out of contact with the infant.

  • Publication number: 20160166795
    Abstract: The resuscitation method and device incorporates a T-piece and/or bag and mask resuscitation device that transforms into short term (and then long term) CPAP device. This results in continuum of respiratory care in the Delivery Room, and potentially in the nursery. The respiratory support is uninterrupted. The device can include a modular design, which adds heat and humidity in a modular way, when the long term CPAP requires it. The resuscitation device and method includes a PIP phase and a PEEP phase. This is driven either manually or by a finger and gas power. The exhalation phase is PEEP, where the PEEP is a small positive pressure to ensure the lungs remain open. When the baby is spontaneously breathing, meaning no longer in need of PIP, the PEEP can be adjusted to be continuous positive pressure, or CPAP. If the CPAP is short term, there is minimal need for heating or humidifying the air. When the CPAP is used longer term, a heater and humidifier can be applied to the air source of the CPAP.
