Every year brings new advancements in medical equipment. An area that is consistently researched and improved upon is the health and well-being of newborns. Understandably, there is nothing more precious or important than the first days of a baby’s life.
Each year, millions of newborns experience a condition known as infant jaundice. This typically occurs at birth or within their first week. Jaundice is characterized by a yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes, and is caused by an excess of bilirubin in the bloodstream. Although a common occurrence that typically requires minimal action, there are cases in which infant jaundice is indicative of an underlying and serious issue. Some conditions that present jaundice characteristics and warrant immediate intervention include liver disease, sepsis, blocked bile duct or bowel, and hepatitis.
Treatment for a newborn jaundice is to expose the child to phototherapy. Phototherapy consists of shining light onto the skin. The illumination breaks down the excess bilirubin, thereby decreasing its level. In years past, phototherapy treatments took place in the hospital where your child was born. Now, you can rent a portable home phototherapy unit, also known as a biliblanket, for at-home use.
The BiliTx Biliblanket
The latest breakthrough in biliblanket jaundice medical equipment, known as the BiliTx, is now available for rent. The BiliTx comes with exceptional benefits, including LED light source, dual functionality, easy operation, and low to no maintenance costs. Its cool spot technology provides a stable thermal environment without the heat transfer of a halogen light source phototherapy device.
Benefits to All
Renting a biliblanket for your infant is the preferred choice for parents, as it allows you to care for your child while in the comfort of your own home. Doctors recommend biliblanket rentals in support of child/parent bonding during the early days of a baby’s life, and insurance companies like the lower expense of home versus inpatient services at a hospital.
