Continually evolving care for newborns

Our neonatology technology enables you as caregivers to deliver life-sustaining, non-invasive, developmental care to neonates in a nurturing and supportive environment. Our goal is to help you improve patient outcomes during the newborn’s golden hour, transport flow and NICU stay, while supporting you and the baby’s parents with training material and educational resources. As Your Specialist in Acute Care, we continue developing outstanding technology and delivering innovative design that is focused on your newborns – helping to ease workflows, improve therapy and support developmental care and infection prevention practices.


Neonatal Workshops

This workshop enables participants to remain up-to-date with developments in neonatal ventilation, thermoregulation and jaundice management. The program includes practical examples and is interactive.

Thermoregulation in the NICU

Careful heat management of newborns is an important topic for every NICU. Although thermoregulation is now known to have an impact on patient outcome, it is still an area for further education. Here’s an in-depth look at why it’s important to keep NICU babies within the optimal ‘thermo-neutral’ range to provide the best conditions for growth and maturity.

Nurse monitors the amount of light reaching a premature baby in the NICU

NICU lighting

When it comes to premature babies, light is a very complex matter. We need to avoid too much exposure and brightness and yet understand how the right amount of light at the right times can have a positive influence on development. Here, we discuss how creating a supportive light environment in the NICU, with the right care and the right technology, can truly benefit your littlest patients.

Noise in the NICU

For babies in the NICU, noise presents a complex issue. Loud noises can be especially harmful to premature babies, sometimes causing hearing damage and developmental delays down the road. However, newborns respond extremely well to beneficial and comforting sounds. Here, we look at good versus bad noises and how to create a nurturing NICU noise environment.

Premature baby is cared for in the NICU

Developmental care in the NICU

NICUs can be tough environments – for babies, parents and caregivers. Pro-developmental and family-centred care concepts help to remove the factors that cause stress. Learn about how this promotes neural and physiological growth in premature babies – and also helps caregivers feel less stress, so the focus can stay on delivering the best possible care to the newborns.
