Neo-HeLP™ is a medical device for the neonatal heat loss prevention. It is a sterile suit especially designed to cover the body of the baby from head to toe, immediately after delivery, while keeping an easy access for care.
Neo-HeLP consists of:
A double layer of polyethylene which creates a greenhouse effect and protects from drafts and from evaporation of amniotic fluid.
A hood, fully adjustable to the infant's head, which does not let the ambient air through and thus limits the dispersion of heat from the head.
A pre-formed foam which acts as a barrier against heat loss by conduction and maintains the head of the baby in a tilted position to release the neonate's airway.
Three sizes are available according to the corpulence of the baby: Small, Medium and Large.
