The birth of a baby is one of those wonderful miracles of life. Yet it is a complicated and delicate process. Half a million babies are born prematurely, and associated symptoms often occur alongside in this patient population: low birth weight, heart problems, infections, and birth defects. It is at this time that researchers, manufacturers, hospitals, clinics, and health care providers must work together to tackle this problem.
According to Grand View Research, the NICU equipment market will be valued at around $10.6 billion as early as 2026. The impetus behind this prediction is the rising occurrence of premature births, and products such as infant warmer devices and transporter incubators have been growing in popularity among health care providers.
Below is some equipment that is vital to NICU.
Our equipment is there for more than to simply improve the cost-effectiveness of hospitals. The equipment is there for the baby; newborns are monitored continuously for a variety of metrics, including vital signs and when to feed the baby, and the equipment makes these tasks possible in a NICU. The equipment is also there for the mother; with so many things to monitor to ensure the well-being of the baby, it allows a worried mom to pay attention to her needs and her family’s needs as she continues to recover from bearing her new baby. Finally, the equipment is there for our partners- the hardworking nurses and doctors that deliver the babies: it is essential for NICUs to have the highest standards in equipment for the most genuinely caring teams of professionals out there. U.S. Med-Equip is there to support this priority every step of the way.
