American Academy of Pediatrics Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Hyperbilirubinemia in the Newborn recommends “intensive phototherapy” for higher bilirubin babies – as defined by: 1) high light irradiance; 2) as much of baby’s skin surface area as possible. The PEP Bed delivers this “intensive phototherapy” better than any other device and provides up to 12-times more Phototherapy Treatment Units than other devices.
The PEP Bed usually treats jaundiced infants within 24-48 hours – others may take up to six days. Clinicians can confidently treat higher bilirubin babies at home or in hospital with the PEP Bed. At Quality Medical, we repair service and rent phototherapy medical equipment.
