• Obstetric Tips

    • Consider disposable accessories whenever possible for your laboring moms: Novii Wireless Patch System, abdominal belts, blood pressure cuffs, SpO2 , and ECG.
    • Free-up monitors by utilizing the maternal monitoring features already integrated into your Corometrics 259cx including blood pressure, ECG, SpO2 and temperature*. Monitor temperatures closely with the integrated Exergen Scanner integrated into your Corometrics 259cx.
    • If you need to move mom or your entire Labor & Delivery unit, consider a simply featured monitor with fetal-only parameters that can be easily moved like the Corometrics 170 series monitors .
    • If you need to unplug your fetal monitors from your network, don’t forget to make sure you have plenty of Fetal Monitoring paper for printing your CTG strip. This is a good back-up if electronic surveillance and documentation systems are not available.
    • Consider Ultrasound solutions to help confirm and monitor progress of acute respiratory disease and the fetus.
    *Dependent upon the configuration of your fetal monitors
  • Neonatal Tips

    • Consider shifting Phototherapy to treat Jaundice at-home in order to discharge your patients sooner or to avoid readmits.
    • When implementing separation, consider the Giraffe OmniBed Carestation or Giraffe Incubator Carestation.
    • The Giraffe OmniBed and Giraffe Incubator can also be used to transfer patients within the hospital in a closed environment from Labor & Delivery to the next care area, if a closed environment is needed.
    • The Giraffe Omnibed Carestation and Incubator can be lowered to be in line-of-sight for a mother in bed.
    • Giraffe Shuttle can be used as an intrahospital transportable power source for any Giraffe bed or Panda Warmer.
    • If you are in need of a transportable air and oxygen source, consider setting-up cylinders on our Panda or Giraffe Warmers, Giraffe Shuttle, and the Giraffe Stand-alone Infant Resuscitation System. Options include built-in high-pressure yokes, cylinder holders, blender and pressure gauges in one unit.
