Warming Units, Patient, Radiant, Infant definition: Radiant warming units designed to provide thermal stability to infants while allowing direct observation. Most of these units can be operated either with the heating elements turning on and off according to the changes in the infant's skin temperature (automated mode) or by setting the heater at a constant power level for a set period of time (manual mode). These units are available in several different configurations, including freestanding and mounted on an integral bassinet to facilitate continuous thermal support for newborns and critically ill infants; they are also used for infants undergoing long treatment in a cool environment.
WARMER, INFANT RADIANT definition: An infant radiant warmer is a device consisting of an infrared heating element intended to be placed over an infant to maintain the infant's body temperature by means of radiant heat. The device may also contain a temperature monitoring sensor, a heat output control mechanism and an alarm to alert operators of the device's failure. The device may be placed over a pediatric hospital bed or it may be built into the bed as a complete unit.
