Baby Leo Incubators for NICU
The Draeger Baby Leo Incubator and warmer provides family-centered care for premature or ill newborns. This state of the art incubator greatly enhances the patient experience for the newborn and the parents. It supports mother and baby bonding and improves infant outcomes.
Virtual Reality for Pain Management
Thanks to WHAM, virtual reality modules are now offered to all eligible and interested obstetrical and pediatric patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Virtual reality employs relaxation and distraction to reduce the pain associated with medical procedures. Additionally, non-pharmacological pain and anxiety management minimizes patient exposure to opioids.
Brevera Breast Biopsy System
WHAM and another generous donor funded a biopsy system for suspicious breast calcifications, aiding in diagnosing breast cancer. The Brevera promotes real-time imaging of biopsy specimens, allowing immediate verification of adequate sampling by the radiologist and safer handling of patient specimens.
