Neonatal bedside resuscitation unit
In the first few moments of life there can be a real dilemma for clinical staff. Despite the clear evidence outlining the benefits of Optimal Cord Clamping, most guidelines state that priority should be given to resuscitation of the infant.
The LifeStart™ eliminates this dilemma. Designed with input from experienced paediatricians, midwives and obstetricians, its compact design allows the LifeStart™ to be easily positioned close to the mother, enabling the infant’s airway to be supported on a warm platform whilst leaving the umbilical cord intact. This helps to facilitate improved placental transfusion and smoother cardiovascular transition, providing the best starting life for the baby.
Providing optimal care to the baby within close proximity to the mother and birth partner, allows family members to stay together for mutual comfort, without having to be separated from their baby during this worrying procedure. It can also enhance communication between the mother, birth partner and clinician, giving reassurance that their baby is receiving the best possible care.
LifeStart™ not only facilitates the best treatment for the baby but also helps bring some normality to birth at a stressful time for families.
