The body of the newborns is undeveloped, whose blood pressure and ECG are quite different from the adults. If you use conventional monitors and cuffs to measure for children, it is easy to cause inaccurate or undetectable values, impossible to accurately collect, monitor, and manage the clinical data of newborns. Therefore, more professional neonatal monitors are needed to ensure the life support of high-risk newborns.
Difficulties in Newborn Examination
- Measuring newborn blood pressure with an adult monitor is not accurate most of the time. The baby will easily get injured due to the high pressure of the adult blood pressure cuff.
- The newborn’s arm is small, and it is extremely difficult to measure with the conventional method of a stethoscope. Therefore, we must use electronic measurement or invasive measurement to perform differential measurement on the newborn.
- The blood oxygen is one of the important values of the newborn’s vital signs. But it’s not easy to measure blood oxygen due to low blood pressure and weak blood perfusion of the newborn.
- After years of research, according to the weak vital signs of newborns, the Apollo N1-A neonatal monitor was launched to solve the clinical pain points of neonatal signs that are difficult to monitor normally.
Apollo N1-A Neonatal monitor
The Apollo N1-A neonatal monitor features the “respiration measurement algorithm” with independent intellectual property rights, together with the “asphyxia self-rescue module”, so that neonatal breathing detection is no longer difficult.
Aiming at the problem that it is difficult to accurately measure neonatal blood oxygen under physical activity and hypoperfusion, Heal Force team adopts American Masimo SET blood oxygen module, which uses accurate values as a benchmark to match different types of blood oxygen probes.
Not only the American Masimo SET blood oxygen module stands out, but the American SunTech blood pressure module is also used in the Li Kang neonatal monitor. The industry-leading SunTech blood pressure module gives newborn babies more comprehensive monitoring and measurement. With different types of blood pressure cuffs, it truly achieves all-around and accurate measurement.
Faced with the monitoring needs of newborns, the Apollo N1-A special newborn monitor has brought numerous benefits to newborns and has also helped the work of clinicians and nurses.
