Shvabe, a Russian holding company forming part of Rostec Corporation that manufactures neonatal equipment, demonstrated its range of resuscitation, anesthetic and intensive care equipment for children and adults at the 42nd Arab Health Exhibition & Congress 2017.
Shvabe’s neonatal devices are used for therapy, nursing and effective resuscitation of premature and newborns with extremely low body weight. The Russian company’s incubators are equipped with a computer-control system that allows monitoring all the possible parameters, such as temperature inside a module, oxygen concentration and air humidity, as well as a newborn’s body temperature and weight.
At Arab Health 2017 – held from January 30 through February 2 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Shvabe presented its new products in the field of newborn care. Products included the IDN-03 intensive care incubator, the OFN-03 phototherapy lamp, and the ODN-01 heater. Additionally, Shvabe, which is also a part of the Moscow government’s joint exposition, "Made in Moscow", demonstrated the MAIA-01, a multifunctional inhalation anesthesia unit that provides artificial lung ventilation, general anesthesia and integrated monitoring of the breathing mixture for children and adults. Other medical devices demonstrated by Shvabe at the integrated exposition included cardiographic electrodes ECO and an automatic defibrillator.
"The market of medical equipment in the United Arab Emirates is a very attractive platform for foreign trade activity. Currently, the Middle East accounts for 10% of medical equipment exported by the Holding. In the long term, we are planning to increase this value considerably due to extension of our distributors' list," said Alexei Patrikeyev, general director of Shvabe.
