For more than three decades, phototherapy has been the standard for treating neonatal jaundice. The benefits of utilizing phototherapy devices instead of sunlight include: 24 hour treatment, greater efficacy by narrowing the spectral range to 430-490nm, improved temperature regulation due to smaller exposed surface area, and the elimination of harmful UV irradiation to the patient from sunlight exposure.
Medical Select’s BiliBee LED Phototherapy system is revolutionizing the phototherapy industry by providing a completely portable and maintenance free system by eliminating the fiber optic cable found on competitors phototherapy systems.
The BiliBee LED Phototherapy System is a portable, battery-operated or AC powered device that utilizes an LED illuminator pad for the treatment of neonatal jaundice (hyperbilirubinemia). Treatment is applied by placing the patient on the BiliBee LED pad while a disposable sheath separates the infant from the pad’s surface. Treatment is intended to be applied 24 hours a day until the infants bilirubin levels have been effectivly lowered to an acceptable level according to AAP guidelines.
Whether using the AC power supply at home or the battery pack on the go, the BiliBee LED provides intense treatment wherever it’s needed.
The product is so convenient that both mother and infant will forget it’s even there!
LED Illuminator Pads The BiliBee LED is encased in silicone making the pad comfortable and flexible.
Disposable Sheaths The disposable sheaths are used to cover the LED illuminator pad. These sheaths are designed to slide over the LED pad like a sleeve, and they to serve as a barrier between the patient and the flexible LED pad during treatment. The disposable sheaths should be replaced when soiled or deemed necessary.
Battery Operated The BiliBee LED Phototherapy System is equipped with a battery pack that takes 8AA batteries that can provide a system operation time of up to four hours. The battery pack will enable the parent/caregiver to continue treatment during trips to and from the physicians office for Bilirubin checks.
Low Battery Warning An audible low-battery warning will warn caregiver when, its time to replace the batteries or to swith to the AC power source.
AC Power Source The AC power source plugs directly into a wall outlet, and provides DC output voltage to operated the LED illumination pad.
