The most recent education via the TechNation Webinar Wednesday series featured Ashton Solecki, the Product Manager of the Neonatal Test product line, including incubator, radiant warmer, and phototherapy analyzers, for Fluke Biomedical. Solecki discussed how to ensure proper performance of radiant warmers, including global testing standards, best practices for testing radiant warmers and skin temperature probe testing for incubators and radiant warmers. The webinar was sponsored by Fluke Biomedical.
Radiant Warmers help warm newborns and critical care infants; however, they also have had an infamous reputation of unequal heat distribution and patient burns. Although advances in medical device technology have greatly improved, testing radiant warmers accurately is of utmost importance.
A baby cannot tell you what is wrong with its environment, or whether they are too hot or too cold. Validating the performance and safety of radiant warmers and ensuring proper performance of skin temperature probes is crucial in protecting an infant’s safety and health. Solecki discussed how to help protect the safety of the smallest patients.
Attendance was high for the webinar with 442 individuals participating. Attendees gave the session high marks in a post webinar survey.
