Many of high risk infants were diagnosed due to Babysense usage in their home. Once high risk has been determined, we usually recommend a cardio-respiratory monitor, but for the general population we definitely support the Babysense usage. I believe that it is possible that usage of Babysense in the general population contributes to the reduction of SIDS in recent years. Many families reported to our clinic due to Babysense alarm, which led to their diagnosis with sleep apnea and/or immaturity of respiratory center, and thus high risk for SIDS.”

“Our hospital has been using the Babysense product for the purpose of monitoring babies breathings, for the last 8 years, to our satisfactory.”

Dr. Nijim Yousef – Head Department – Neonatal Intensive Care Unit & Children Ward – Nazareth Hospital

“By this letter I would like to thank you for your way of co-operation and for presents of babysense monitors which we use daily for each patient, i.e. new-born baby and which assist us in our work. We use the monitors not only for risk patients with positive anamnesis in our hospital against SIDS however the monitors contribute markedly in monitoring apnoea pauses at home use. Thanks to the monitoring we were repeatedly alarmed and the child was saved and brought to the hospital on time.”

MUDR. Edit Rajzák, Head Physician, Pediatric Ward, NsP Dunajská Streda

"The Israeli made Babysense apnoea monitor used by us works with great accuracy. Its use doesn't present any difficulty even for the not-learned parent and it does not harm the infant in any way. In addition, its comparatively low price facilitates its extensive use. In our experience, which is based on a not inconsiderable number of home monitoring cases, the quality of life of the parents using the monitor has also improved during the period of monitoring. So far we have not found any counter-arguments which would make us alter our own practice. All things considered, we regard the home use of Babysense as a part of SIDS prevention. We consider home monitoring of clinically healthy infants a true parental demand.“

“One night – when the infant was two months old – the Babysense alarmed. The infant, who had been developing steadily so far, was found unconscious, lying faint without breathing in the cot…While in hospital, SIDS was diagnosed. Today, the child is four and a half years old and is developing steadily.”

“The parents found their 3-month-old infant – after the alarm of Babysense monitor – with his head caught between the bars of its cot suffocating. After freeing the baby's head, the infant recovered, and has been developing without any difficulties since then.”

“According to our judgment, this method helped to prevent potential danger of deaths.”

"The «BABYSENSE» device was used in the intensive care department, neonatal intensive care and nursing of LBW of Research Center of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology in the period from October 10, 2003 to January 15, 2004 with 15 preterm and 4 full-term infants aged 3 to 25 days. With the help of «BABYSENSE» 9 cases of apnea were identified in children weighing more than 1000 grams, which was also registered in parallel with multifunctional monitor. In this case no false alarms of the instrument were identified.

The specified device is extremely simple to manage, easy to disinfect. It is appropriate to use the device when nursing newborn premature infants and infants at high risk of sudden death syndrome in a hospital and at home".

Antonov, and: the leading Research Associate of Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology and Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Doctor of Sciences and Prof. E.N. Baybarina.

"The «BABYSENSE» device was tested in the premature infant department in the City Hospital № 8 Department of Healthcare of Moscow. The device has helped identifying 3 cases of apnea. Timely detection of apnea syndrome in these cases has prevented the secondary hemodynamic disturbances.  False alarms were not detected.

«BABYSENSE» device is mostly appropriate for use with children weighing more than 1250 grams. It should be used at the stage of nursing in order to reduce the risk of Sudden death due to respiratory failure, as well as with preterm and full-term infants who are at risk at home after discharge from the hospital".

"«BABYSENSE» monitors are indispensable helpers for both health professionals and parents, because of the fact that children up to one year of age, preterm, as well as healthy children have failures in their breath and even complete breathing seizures... Timely fixation of apnea and emergency resuscitation, thanks to the use of «BABYSENSE» monitor, saves lives of children.

«BABYSENSE» monitors are recommended for use in medical practice in the Russian Federation, as well for use by individuals at home."

"In the course of studying operation of the monitor, we have noted the simplicity of use, its high sensitivity to disturbances in infant respiratory excursion, the possibility of using the device with patients of different ages. It is advisable to use the monitor as for the regurgitation syndrome in infants with potential for development of aspiration. The use of breathing monitor «BABYSENSE» is possible in hospital and in home conditions".

Chief physician of Tushinskaya - Children's City Hospital of Moscow, V.F. Smirnov

"«BABYSENSE» monitors are used in the department for premature infants in City Clinical Hospital number 1 in Samara since November 2003...The monitors clearly capture not only the development of sleep apnea, but also the appearance of episodes of irregular breathing in infantsGiven the simplicity in operation, safety, relatively low cost, this monitor can be considered as necessary to equip infant maternity departments, departments for premature infants, as well as for home use."
