Isolette Incubators and Infant Warmers

Babies come to term when they are expelled from the mother. During their stay, they are in the uterus which is a heat controlled warm environment. To simulate that environment when they are birthed, they are put into an infant warmer. The infant warmer simulates the heat a mother would give to her baby, to make the baby feel safe, and encourage bodily functions amongst homeostasis.

Infant warmers are used in settings of infants including the NICU, Labor and Delivery departments of hospitals, and areas for newborns. Incubators are containers where the premature baby is put to simulate the uterus and the care that that structure provides. This container helps protects babies who are extra vulnerable and at increased risk of complications, from infection, noise, and light. These incubators may even provide humidified water and a fan for cooling off the preemie because they do not have fully formed capabilities of homeostasis much like newborns do. Soma Tech Intl Includes a wide variety of different types of infant warmers and incubators alike.

Drager makes a few versions of an incubator. This includes the Air-Shields Isolette C450 QT, T1500, T1500 Globe-Trotter, 8000, and the C2000.

Drager Air-Shields Isolette C450 QT Features

The Drager Air-Shields Isolette C450 QT infant incubator has been developed to address unique needs of infants. It provides a thermally controlled environment required for any neonate. The Isolette C450 features both baby and air modes of operation. The important addition of the Quiet Touch (QT) helps reduce the adverse stimulation shown to have an effect on the well-being of the neonates.

Drager Air-Shields Isolette TI500 Features

The Drager Isolette TI500 incubator is a self-contained, mobile, intensive care unit. Consistent air temperature is essential to the health of a premature infant. The TI500 incubator features a double wall design which reduces radiant heat loss from the infant during transport between departments or between hospitals. Humidity is important, especially for babies less than 26 weeks in gestational age. An integral humidity pad helps minimize the infant’s evaporative heat loss by providing 50 to 70 percent humidity in the patient-hood for up to 12 hours. The controller features a display that is easy to read at any angle during transport.

Drager Isolette 8000 Features

Drager sets the standard for thermoregulation with a host of performance features designed to provide a stable, cocoon-like environment for the baby. To ensure that the Thermo-Neutral Zone is maintained, the Isolette 8000 enables you to continuously monitor both the core and peripheral body temperature.

The Isolette 8000 is designed to reduce stress at every turn, bend and twist.

The longer the shift runs, the more the caregiver will come to appreciate the many ergonomic touches incorporated into the Isolette 8000. Easy access to the neonate, convenient height adjustment of the incubator, and easy-to-reach controls make it a great incubator for any NICU. With its compact design, the Isolette 8000 is easy to maneuver. Lightweight, small footprint, smooth trolley assembly, and ergonomic foot-actuated brakes allow virtually effortless movement, even in congested NICU settings.

  • Our ability to reliably sustain a stable thermoneutral microenvironment has made Dräger a trusted resource in thermoregulation.
  • The Isolette name is associated with a proven design that has been known by caregivers across the globe for decades.
  • The advanced thermoregulation system, controlled by Dräger’s elaborate PID algorithm, keeps the baby in a stable environment.
  • Very low velocity is used to create a calm zone that surrounds the neonate to inhibit convective heat loss, while dual air curtains and preemptive regulation mechanisms maintain a virtually stable environment during access to the infant.
