GE Giraffe OmniBed Incubator

  • GE Incubators GE Giraffe OmniBed Incubator

The GE Giraffe OmniBed is a richly-featured neonatal microenvironment that combines the thermal advantages of a double-walled incubator with the access advantages of an open bed radiant warmer. Conversion between an incubator and an open bed warmer happens in seconds with a touch of a button. In either open or closed bed operation, the OmniBed provides a precise microprocessor controlled thermal support.

Stress on the infant, staff, and family members is reduced by eliminating the need to transfer the baby between incubators and warmers. Less equipment is now required for caregiving, cleaning, service, and storage. The OmniBed pioneered developmentally appropriate features including the patented Baby Susan rotating mattress and internal bed tilt. The GE Giraffe OmniBed combines two traditional infant care products in one. A fully-featured incubator and a radiant warmer in one. Protects from heat loss while the bi-directional maintains thermal stability. An infant receives uniform heat regardless of position.

GE Giraffe OmniBed Incubator Features

  • Incubator with an Air Curtain to protect from heat loss
  • Radiant warmer that provides consistent heat in any position
  • A consistent and controlled thermal environment
  • Improved access to patient
  • A less stressful environment for the patient and family
  • No need to transfer a patient from incubator to infant warmer
  • 360-degree rotating patient mattress
  • Drop down removable doors and rotating bed provide easy access to the In-Bed scale
  • Elevating base lowers for seated family members, yet elevates to accommodate taller caregivers or special procedures.
  • Centralized display/control unit provides accessibility from either side of the bed plus excellent viewing of all equipment and patient parameters.
  • Integrated trending for control settings, thermal parameters, and baby weight provides historical reference.
  • The patented radiant warming system heats the entire extra large mattress evenly without warming the caregiver.
  • The baby receives uniform radiant heat regardless of position, even during X-ray.
  • Servo controlled humidifier provides humidity up to 95% RH.
  • Optional servo oxygen control system maintains a precise oxygen environment from 21 to 65% in incubator mode and reacts quickly during closed bed interventions.
  • In-bed scale with weight trending allows weights to be taken and trended without removing the baby. (Up to 14 weights stored)
  • Giraffe Pressure Diffusing Mattress (PDM) is our most advanced development in neonatal mattress technology.
  • Through a uniquely designed softer support surface, the Giraffe PDM helps relieve pressure points and preserves skin integrity while also improving clinical efficiency by reducing or eliminating bedding expenses.
