Why our Lifebox® is required

What happens during a fire or an emergency involving chemicals?

Hospitals and clinics are designed to ensure the wellbeing and recovery of patients. Parallel to this, staff must also be able to ensure their patients’ safety. But what happens if there is a fire, an emergency involving chemicals or biological substances or a similar event?

The staff working at the clinic or hospital learn exactly how they should respond to such emergencies during in-house training and practice drills. It is, however, often the case that neither gets as much attention as they deserve. Or can you in all honesty say that every member of staff at your clinic or hospital knows what to do in such an extreme situation?

How do you rescue babies?

Even if you are well-prepared there is still a problem which no emergency drill or evacuation strategy can solve: How do you rescue babies? Imagine that a fire breaks out in your clinic or hospital and that babies are in the danger area. What would happen?

Breathing apparatus and smoke hoods are not suitable for the rescue. They cannot protect babies from poisonous gases or smoke. Rescuing babies inside a fire fighting jacket can be just as fatal. Particularly since the routes which emergency services have to take to maternity wards and neonatal units, which are often located on upper floors, are very long. In such emergencies babies are helpless and at the mercy of fate. Until now.

Here’s what medical professionals say

«Since we don’t have to unharness the infants to transport them with the ‘Lifebox’, we save a lot of time in an emergency. That can make all the difference in the end.»

Céline Gautier, Ward Manager Neonatology Kantonsspital Aarau

«Medical monitoring equipment can also be transported in the ‘Lifebox’, ensuring children’s medical safety during an evacuation. It also allows us to make a detailed evaluation of the babies’ condition throughout the evacuation after the fact. This ist curcial for their subsequent care.»

Prof. Dr. Henrik Köhler, Senior Consultant and Director of the Children's and Adolescents' Clinic, Aarau Cantonal Hostpital

«The ‘Lifebox’ is an excellent, cost-effective and medically advisable solution for the evacuation of premature and new-born babies.»

KD Dr. med. Philipp Meyer, Senior Neonatology Consultant, Aarau Cantonal Hospital

«We don’t have to consider whether we need a Lifebox, but haw many we need. Until now we weren’t aware of the challenges rescuing babies from a fire present. Now we do an we have been given a solution to this problem. If we don0t take action now, we can start thinking about who we sould like to sahre a prison cell with if there should be an emergency an we are unprepared.»

Dr. Michael Foramitti, Senior Physician Wiener Neustadt Regional Clinic
