Product Overview

Highlights

CERAMOTHERM radiant warmers are the result of more than 40 years of continuous development in the medical use of infrared radiation. Convenient handling and function, comfortable operation as well as a safe use are the priorities of this radiant warmer.

Impressive warming efficiency

Infrared rays do not warm-up the ambient air but are absorbed by the bodies they impinge on and consequently converted into heat. The newly developed high-performance reflector directs the heat to the patient pad even more efficiently and evenly. The Quick-Heat function produces the required warming energy within shortest time and outshines conventional radiant warmers.

Easy to operate

Analogue to the well-proven product lines THERMOCARE and VARIOTHERM, intensity and light are selected intuitively according to the principle “select - adjust - confirm”.

An unintentional direct adjustment, e.g. by visitors, is prevented.

The colour display adjusts its brightness to existing light conditions. This ensures good readability, day or night. When the device is cooled down after switch-off, the display is darkened to not disturb the night’s sleep.

Intensity adjustment as required

Rough, stepwise setting of heating capacity is a thing of the past. In particular for small infants a sensitive adjustment of the radiation intensity according to their demands is a must.

The CERAMOTHERM system allows a fine adjustment of the intensity in mW/cm², optionally in %. A pre-set starting value can be chosen in the menu.

The selected intensity emitted to the patient is calculated by a processor according to the distance to the patient pad. It is controlled precisely and indicated in the actual intensity display.

This technique allows maintaining the body temperature in adults, infants and even smallest preterm babies during intensive care.

Homogeneous illumination

For the smallest patients the best light is just good enough. Infants, in particular new born babies, are stressed when they are dazzled by a sudden glaring spotlight. Therefore the large-area lamps of the CERAMOTHERM 3000 switch the light on and off gently. Small patients remain calm and feel cosy.

The light's colour temperature of 4000 Kelvin guarantees an excellent appearance and is suitable for examinations and minor operations. The light intensity can be adapted in 5 steps ensuring optimum light. A pre-set starting value can be chosen in the menu. 

Integrated timers

With 3 integrated timers the CERAMOTHERM radiant warmer is a device for versatile use.

• Apgar-Timer for postnatal care of new born babies

• Stop watch, helpful for many applications

• Countdown timer, always indispensable for timewise limited applications

Integrated safety

For cost reasons many radiant warmers in the market do not provide essential safety features. Parts of their exposed surfaces can become dangerously hot and they do not have efficient protection, switch-off or warning devices.

This is not the case with radiant warmers CERAMOTHERM 3000! They have been designed under consideration of the current standards and with integrated safety a top priority in order to minimise all possible risks. The heating elements are arranged behind a finger-touch protection and prevent active children, operators and others from touching the 200 - 800 °C hot heating element. The heating elements are shatter-proof so no risk can arise from them.

Furthermore, a rounded design minimises sharp edges and corners to protect the operator from potential injuries.

Application with maximum safety

The infrared spectrum of CERAMOTHERM radiant warmers was chosen in a way that on the one hand the patients are warmed efficiently and on the other hand it cannot cause any injuries to the eye and the skin.

Very small or hypothermic patients often require high radiation intensity to maintain their body temperature. In most cases this is above 10 mW/cm² which in the long run can cause hyperthermia and skin injuries. In order to avoid such hazards, the radiation intensity is reduced automatically to a safe value after a certain time and a signal sounds to inform the operator. So cooling is avoided and the patient is prevented from hypothermia. The actual intensity and balance time to automatic intensity reduction are displayed.

As the heating elements can remain hot sometime after switching off, the residual intensity is displayed.

Automatic distance detection with intensity compensation

CERAMOTERM radiant warmers with height-adjustable wall or ceiling fixtures have an automatic distance detection with patented intensity compensation Autodetect. For other device models this feature is optional.

The Autodetect function will immediately reduce the radiation intensity when the distance to the patient is reduced and it will automatically increase the intensity within shortest time when the distance to the patient is enlarged. The intensity is adjusted to a steady level and the parameters for intensity and distance are displayed accordingly. This is a unique technique which is second to none.

The reflector

Parabolic preflector with formation of a focus.

CERAMOTHERM radiant warmers have a high-performance reflector that directs the radiation intensity of the heating element directly and evenly to the patient pad. Formation of a hazardous focus is excluded.

Parabolic reflectors with a focus below the radiant warmer (see figure on the left) are a hazard for the operator and a thing of the past.

Über Infrarot

Cosy and gentle warming

In various situations patients need support to maintain their body temperature. This applies to unclothed babies during nappy changing, infants under longer examination, centralised patients and during theatre preparation and recovery. Infrared radiant warmers are ideal for this purpose. But which is the right one?

Infrared radiation is part of the solar spectrum and invisible for human beings. Based on its wavelength, it is divided into three ranges.


IR-A

Short-wave infrared radiation (0.78 - 1.4 µm) – penetrates deeply into the subcutaneous tissue and has a deep warming effect. The eye is transparent for short-wave infrared and injuries of the retina can occur without advance warning. Therefore IR-A radiation should only be used for certain intensive-therapeutic applications under medical surveillance. Sufficient eye protection is mandatory. Keeping the deep penetration in mind in particular the thin skin of babies and preterm babies must be protected from injuries.


IR-B

Medium-wave radiation (1.4 - 3.0 µm) – reaches the medium skin layers (dermis) with the effect of warming the epidermis and the dermis below as well as the bloodstream.


IR-C

Long-wave radiation (3.0 - 10 µm) – penetrates the upper skin layers, with the effect of an even and gentle warming of the human body.


CERAMOTHERM radiant warmers

CERAMOTHERM radiant warmers supply infrared radiation in the wavelength spectrum of 1.5 - 6.8 µm (IR-B + IR-C), according to the surface temperature of their ceramic heating elements.

When medium and long infrared rays reach the human body, they are absorbed by the upper skin layers and converted into heat. They do not penetrate deeply into the radiation-sensitive tissue layers. The blood circulation is increased and the warmed blood is transported and distributed in the body.

CERAMOTHERM infrared radiation is gently and efficiently converted into sensible cosy body heat.
