What Is Neotherm™ Machine?
Neotherm™ Machine is a body cooling system that includes a mattress as well as a machine. We can lower a newborn’s body temperature with the support of this device. This equipment is useful in curing Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (when there is a shortage of oxygen in the baby’s body). The machine also has a heater for re-warming the body temperature post-hypothermia therapy.
Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a type of brain disorder resulting from birth asphyxia, this condition occurs when a newborn lacks proper blood flow or oxygen flow to the brain, leading to disrupted circulation.
HIE medication has progressed. But, only hypothermia therapy has been successful in improving outcomes. This therapy uses external cooling technologies to cool the body, slowing metabolism and reducing inflammation in the brain.
Neonatal Hypothermia Therapy
As we also know, to cure Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, Hypothermia therapy the only successful and proven treatment. It can prevent the baby from permanent damage to the brain, and the baby’s brain is protected from the risk of cerebral palsy, epilepsy, cognitive delays, and autism. Hypothermia therapy also helps with reducing inflammation in the brain and lungs of infants after birth trauma or more serious brain injury.
Keeping the significance of Hypothermia therapy in mind, VNG Medical has devised the Neotherm™ Machine, which will serve the function of Neonatal body cooling.

Some Features That Make This Device Effective:
Only water and no other fluid are needed.
Easy knowledge analysis systems.
An alarm system that permits you to observe from afar.
How Does The System Work of Neotherm™ ?
Here is a quick guide on how to use the Neotherm™ Machine. (Attaching the necessary components are required):
- Firstly, fill up the water from the brim provided on top of the tank and tighten the lid of the fluid reservoir.
- Lay down the baby on the mattress, which is intact with the fluid wrap.
- Secondly, attach the probes; the rectal probe will go inside the baby’s rectum (for about 3 to 5cm). The skin probe attached to anywhere on the skin.
- Lastly, proceed with plugging in the main cable.
- Also, set the targeted temperature. The machine will adjust the temperature automatically.
- These temperatures adjust in small amounts according to the need and electric current.
- If you wish to see the data, press ‘details’.
- Select ‘change settings’ to modify the parameters.
- Energy consumed by the Machine is more diminutive than imagined.
- The machine works on automated functions.
- After the treatment, press the power button to end it.
- Transfer the data stored and export it to another device.
- Finally, power off the Machine.
- At last, clean the mattress as per the safety and hygiene norms.
Recommended Components Before Operations
Some components are a must before starting machine operations. Those components are as follows:
- Sterilized water
- Connecting Hoes
- Mattress or an aqua pad
- In addition, a rectal probe and skin probe
Temperature Instructions Of Neotherm
Temperature below than homeostasis required. So that the baby can recover, the aimed temperature at approximately 92.3 degrees Fahrenheit, around 33.5 degrees Celsius, and the temperature maintained for 72 hours.
Mode Of Operation
Servo-Controlled Rectal temperature is the only mode of operation. Hence, it is a prescribed mode. This mode allows maintaining the prescribed temperature. The sensor probe is attached to the rectum. The probe itself has a sensor that senses the temperature, and this sensor transmits the detected data to the display.
This display is connected to the controller by an infrared receiver. The controller is a microprocessor-based device that converts the monitored data and displays them in real-time on display.
How Does Alarm Work of Neotherm™ ?
Alarming systems are designed to help nursing staff. Thus, no stress and continuous monitoring are required by the nursing staff. The alarm blares when:
The Fluid levels decrease
Increase or decrease of temperature
Also, Reduction in flow
Rewarming Process Details Of The Machine
The phase of rewarming runs on automation mode. Heat transfer of the fluid system is effective. Data storage for a single therapy can be as long as 80 hours.
This machine is easily portable. The user only needs to spend time setting the parameters of the Machine and then can carry the Machine to any room. It will save the time of the therapist and the patient. The temperature of the system is controlled by the device automatically.
The skin probe provided is not for compulsory use. The rectal probe is the most important, and it regulates the body temperature of the baby.
In case of power failure, it restarts from the same settings.
Most of the accessories are reusable. But the limit has been predetermined for the number of uses. Overdoing the limit prescribed is not recommended. Besides, the price of this Machine is reasonable.
