Infant/Baby Radiant Warmer manufacturers

Infant/Baby Radiant Warmer offers a radiant source of heat to babies who suffer from hypothermia. With the use of i-sense technology, it provides artificial assistance to keep the baby’s body temperature constant at a desired level. The producers create several kinds of Infant Warmers based on the necessities, which include X-ray procedures, IV poles, and storage facilities.

Neonatal Care – Infant Radiant warmer:

Infant radiant warmers are overhead heating units.  A heat source, a skin-temperature sensor, an automatic (servo) control unit, and visual and aural alarms are usually included. They generate a large amount of radiant heat energy. They help limit conductive losses by enclosing the baby in a warm microenvironment.


Unnecessary neonatal deaths continue to be caused by a failure to pay attention to thermoregulation. It is critical to maintain a constant body temperature in order to achieve optimal growth. Caloric expenditure and oxygen consumption are minimal if the temperature is maintained. Newborn babies, especially those born prematurely or with a low birth weight, are particularly vulnerable to hypothermia. Radiant warmers are more closely associated with the particular care of newborn babies than any other piece of equipment.

Nursing care of Baby Under Infant Radiant warmer:

The Radiant Warmer is a device that provides heat to the body. The radiant warmer (also known as the open care system) was created as a ‘Open Incubator’ that allows parents to have immediate access to their babies. The parabolic reflector reflects heat from the overhead quartz heating source onto the baby in the bassinet. This device keeps the baby’s body temperature stable and slows down their metabolism. Heat tends to travel in the direction of the heat gradient, which is from high to low temperature.

In the heater output display panel, the amount of heat produced is displayed. The desired skin temperature is selected using the temperature selection knobs. Radiant Warmers are a powerful source of radiant heat. By providing a warm microenvironment around the baby, they also limit conductive heat losses.

Function of Infant Radiant warmer:

Warmth is provided by an overhead heat lamp and a heated mattress in infant warmers. The purpose of these devices is to deliver warmth from beneath the infant. Infant warmers allow for easy access to neonates who require immediate medical assistance while maintaining a comfortable temperature.

       The microprocessor in the control panel processes this information and compares it to the baby’s real temperature.

       If the baby’s temperature falls below the set temperature, the microcontroller will transmit feedback to the quartz rod heater, which will raise the heat output until the temperature exceeds the set temperature, after which the heater output will be lowered. 


  • A servo system is one in which the heater output is automatically determined based on skin temperature information. The recommended technique of operating the open care system is through a servo system.
  • The quartz heating rod’s heat output can also be adjusted or lowered manually. The heater output control knobs are responsible for this. The manual method of operation is what it’s called.
  • A visual/audible alarm is activated in the servo mode whenever the baby’s temperature increases by more than 0.5°C above the predetermined setting.
  • The caretaker must pay close attention in order to identify the problem. When the temperature probe comes off the baby’s skin, this frequently happens.

Useful Tips for use of Infant Radiant Warmer:

• In a cold room, don’t use the warmer. When the ambient temperature is over 20°C, it works well.

• Maintaining a warmer in an area with a lot of air currents decreases its efficiency.

• The warmer should be pre-warmed 20 minutes before the baby arrives, or until the desired temperature is attained using less than half of the total heater output.

• Record the baby’s temperature on a regular basis, preferably every two hours, while using the manual mode in a warmer without a temperature display.

• Train junior doctors and nurses on how to utilise the servo and manual modes correctly.

• The manual mode is used to prepare the baby’s crib for the first time or to quickly reheat a severely hypothermic newborn. This, however, may be dangerous since babies may become overheated.

• It is advisable to use the skin probe with the warmer on servo-mode unless a nurse is constantly monitoring the skin temperature.

Do’s & Don’t’s:

• To guarantee effective adhesion to the skin, use an alcohol/spirit swab to prepare the skin.

• In a supine position, place the probe above the right hypochondrium.

• While prone, press the probe against the flank.

• Make sure the sensor probe is in place on a frequent basis. Make sure the skin probe isn’t in contact with the bed.

• If one is available, cover the probe with a reflective cover pad (foil covered foam adhesive pad).

• Make sure the area where the probe will be applied is dry.

 • Do not use on skin that has been bruised.
Do not cover the probe with clear plastic dressings.
Do not remove skin surface probes with your fingernails.
Disposable probes should not be reused.

Difference Between Infant incubators and radiant warmers

The body temperature of newborn newborns is maintained using incubators and radiant warmers. This should be done in such a way that the amount of energy expended for metabolic heat production is kept to a minimum. The heat output of these devices is usually controlled by servocontrol in order to maintain a steady skin temperature at a location on the abdomen where a thermistor probe is attached.

Air temperature servocontrol can also be used in incubators instead of skin temperature servocontrol. Under specific conditions, increased ambient humidity, heat shields, and clothes have been utilised to reduce the evaporative or nonevaporative heat loss of infants in incubators. By adding a second inner layer of Plexiglas to a double-walled incubator, radiant heat loss is reduced. They may also reduce total heat loss, but only if air temperature rather than skin temperature is managed.

The minimal oxygen consumption of a newborn in a radiant warmer is similar to, if not slightly higher than, that of an infant in an incubator. In comparison to incubators, the distribution of body heat loss in radiant warmers is considerably different.

Radiant warmers enhance convective and evaporative heat loss, as well as insensible water loss, but they reduce or eliminate radiant heat loss. With a radiant warmer, a heat shield made of thin polyethylene film can be utilised to limit heat loss by convection and evaporation. In either an incubator or a radiant warmer bed, most infants may be securely and adequately cared for.


The radiant warmer’s main benefit is that it allows critical-ill infants convenient access without disrupting their thermal environment.


The radiant warmer causes an increase in insensible water loss.


Radiant warmers are commonly used to efficiently control body temperature and provide uniform warmth over exposed body parts in ill preterm and term babies.

Complications that have been reported:

• Infants are placed under a radiant warmer after birth until they can regulate their temperature. These devices are often used in the delivery suite to provide thermal support for newborns, for critically unwell infants who require continual nursing attention, and for infants undergoing therapy that requires prolonged exposure to a cool environment.

Long-term cold stress can overwork heat-producing mechanisms, deplete energy reserves, and cause hypoxia, acidosis, hypoglycemia, skin burns, permanent brain damage, and even death.


All reachable external surfaces should be cleansed daily with an antiseptic solution such as 2 percent bacillocid or gluteraldehyde when the equipment is in operation. To clean the glass side panels or display panel, do not use spirit or other organic solvents.

Isopropyl alcohol swab should be used to sanitise the reusable probe. After moving the baby to a new cot every seventh day, the old equipment should be properly cleaned, first with a light detergent solution and then with an antiseptic solution.

All removable assemblies must be handled in the same way.


The key to increasing the mean time between failures is ongoing maintenance. The hospital’s biomedical engineer must inspect equipment on a regular basis, but for preventative maintenance and significant breakdowns, the authorised company engineer must be contacted. Every 4-6 months, the control and power units should be calibrated, and a comprehensive service should be performed once a year. Temperature calibration should ensure  0.5 of the given value sensitivity.


In special care units, the use of warmers is now commonplace. Equipment sophistication has also reached a mature degree. The necessity of familiarity with the equipment and control system, proper operation, cleaning, disinfection, and daily maintenance cannot be overstated. Two to four Indian products can be purchased with an imported unit. A model’s pricing, availability of replacement parts, and servicing facilities are all critical concerns in addition to its quality and performance.
