Principle of heat radiation
When the heater operates, the reflect cover of parabola type radiates evenly the infrared light emitted by the heat source to the baby mattress or the baby’s skin to achieve the purpose of heating.
Operating mode: The infant radiant warmer has a skin temperature mode control temperature system which automatically controls the output of heat radiation according to the temperature detected by the skin temperature sensor.
Radiator: provides infrared radiation for the infant
Tray: for placing low pressure aspirator and nursing articles max weight 2kg
Baby bed: to carry the baby safely max weight is 10kg, it can be tilted according to the need of the care giverKSh250,000.00KSh250,000.00
How do you use MUAC
Place the tape measure around the LEFT arm (the arm should be relaxed and hang down the side of the body).
Measure the MUAC while ensuring that the tape neither pinches the arm nor is left loose.
Read the measurement from the window of the tape or from the tape. Record the MUAC to the nearest 0.1 cm or 1mm.
MUAC is measured in adults and children, to the nearest 0.1 cm, using a flexible non stretch tape laid at the midpoint between the acromion and olecranon processes on the shoulder blade and the ulna, respectively, of the arm.
MUAC is a measure of the sum of the muscle and subcutaneous fat in the upper arm.
Why do we measure MUAC
MUAC, is a measurement that allows health workers to quickly determine if a patient is acutely malnourished. PIH, as well as many other organizations, measures the circumference of a patient’s arm at the midpoint between his or her shoulder and elbowKSh100.00KSh100.00
A pen light is a small flash light in the shape of a pen. It uses a small light known as LED (light emitting diode).
It also uses a small light bulb made just for small flash light, LED lights up when power is run through it.
LED is strong enough to allow medical professional to safely examine patient without being too bright.
they come with a pupil gauge as well as a 5cm ruler.
The length of each pen is about 5.3 inches.KSh500.00KSh500.00
It is used to disinfect the skin prior injection in order to prevent infections caused by bacteria on the skin being injected within the tissue.
They are individually packaged pads made of cotton and contain 70% isopropyl, tightly sealed in an aluminium paper bag to keep them sterile and prevent dryness.
It was proven to be a great disinfectant killing 47-91% of the number of bacteria on the skin.KSh200.00KSh200.00
Mercurial blood pressure machine
A device used to measure blood pressure.
How it works;
After cuffing the patient pump using a bulb until the pressure is about 20mmHg above the expected systolic blood pressure.
The patient should be comfortable and relaxed the lower arm should be placed at the level of the heart with the inside of the arm facing upwards
Place the chest piece of the stethoscope on the artery under the cuff.
To be able to measure open the air release screw on the bulb by turning it counter clockwise, ideally the rate of air release should be 2-3mm, perform a visual check of the air release rate by looking at scale. Mercury display must move along the scale at a speed of 1-15 graduations per second.
Once the upper blood pressure value has been reached a rhythmic thumbing sound is heard
Systolic blood pressure value is the pressure measured when the heart contracts forcing blood into the blood vessels
When the diastolic pressure is reached the thumbing sounds stops
Diastolic is the pressure measured when the cardiac muscle is expanded and fills up with blood again.
Open the air release valve completely so that air can escape from the cuff immediately and the procedure has been completed.KSh3,000.00KSh3,000.00
