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.
During the summer after my first year of medical school, I had the opportunity to visit one of Bangladesh's most sophisticated children's hospitals. I spoke with one of the pediatricians there and asked him why the hospital did not have a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). He replied, "It is too expensive to save the lives of sick newborns. Our hospital can't afford the fancy technology that you have in the US."
Our passion is in information design... that saves lives. This graphic depicts our vision for how Maternova will help or organize the field of innovation for maternal/newborn health
