SurePulse-Medical

Globally leading medical device for finding the heart rate in the critical stabilisation and resuscitation process.

Learn about an accurate and hands-free heart rate monitor specifically designed to be used on newborn babies. It could make a real difference to patient care and also to potentially reduce time that a baby spends in intensive care.

The system comprises two parts – a single-use Cap which integrates a sensor and a reusable Display with wireless Modules.

The system has been designed with the baby and the user firmly in mind. The monitor integrates seamlessly with the resuscitation workflow to provide accurate vital sign information right when it’s needed.

The design of the system has been informed by close cooperation with clinical experts in resuscitation and rigorously tested to ensure it operates reliably in the crucial few minutes after birth. The Cap is designed to be rapidly applied to the baby and situate the sensor on the forehead where optimum signal quality can be obtained. The Display is easily mounted on the side of the resuscitation table. The Display houses two wireless Modules. When the monitoring is required, a Module simply lifts from the Display and is placed into a cradle at the side of the baby’s head, which connects to the sensor.

The Cap is designed to be rapidly applied to the baby and situate the sensor on the forehead.

Innovative wrap-around design provides easy application to a range of head sizes
Only five sizes to accommodate head circumferences from 20 cm to 40 cm
Provides thermal protection
Holes for tethering intubation or CPAP apparatus
Flap at the back of the head gives access for fontanelle scanning
Sensor can be removed from the Cap without taking the Cap off the head, so as not to disturb breathing apparatus or expose the baby’s head unnecessarily
Single-use to prevent cross-contamination
Display

The Display is easily mounted on the side of the resuscitation table. The Display houses two wireless Modules. When the monitoring is required, a Module simply lifts from the Display and is placed into a cradle at the side of the baby’s head, which connects to the sensor.
