These sterile mylar infant warming blankets are used to keep an infant warm by reducing evaporative and connective heat loss. The infant warming blankets have a little hood to wrap over the baby's head and they fold over at the bottom to keep the baby warm during transport. Infants are extremely susceptible to hypothermia. These blankets would be particularly effective in colder setting where infants need to be transported from homes or facilities to hospitals. We sell them in packs of 10. This sterile device comes packaged in a tiny rectangle and is extremely lightweight. We offer steep discounts in high volumes.
Infection with group B streptococcus (GBS) is one of the leading causes of newborn morbidity and mortality worldwide—causing septicemia, pneumonia, meningitis, hearing loss, developmental disability and death. Unrelated to group A streptococcus (which causes strep throat), GBS is present in approximately 1 in 4 women and typically causes no symptoms in the mother. However, the bacteria can be transmitted to the infant during delivery unless women receive intravenous antibiotics during labor.
