San Antonio’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit works to provide
a secure and soothing atmosphere to eliminate as much stress as possible allowing
your baby to grow faster and stronger. The Giraffe Beds serve as an integral
part of the NICU, which provide superior care for some of our more sensitive
patients. The giraffe bed is unique in that it transforms from a radiant warmer
to an incubator (isolette). The key feature of this technology is that the
infant does not need to be removed and expose to the outside environment for
care and treatment. The following tests can be conducted on our infant patients
with minimal or no interruption in their sleep/ development: x-rays (the baby
no longer has to touch the cold x-ray plate), a built in scale which provides a
daily measure of the babies growth, complete resuscitation, ultrasounds, EEGs, and
a calming environment offering babies a reduced noise level and minimal light
exposure. The popular giraffe beds come with the added benefit being family-friendly.
Features such as port holes, clear glass incubator and adjustable bed height, allow
for maximum interaction between you and your infant during this sensitive time.
