Calesca Warming and Thawing Device
Calesca is a waterless warming and thawing device that optimises and standardises human milk processes. It can be placed on an IV pole beside each NICU bed or on a worktop for preparing feeds. Calesca is designed for a hospital environment and operates by circulating heated air in an enclosed chamber.
Warming and thawing breast milk with Calesca
Designed for individual care in the NICU, Calesca is a waterless warming and thawing device that helps to optimise and standardise human milk processes. Calesca aims to maintain the integrity of human milk by warming it to temperatures consistent with expressed breastmilk and not exposing it to high heat. The disposable insert hygienically holds a bottle or syringe in place.
Developed as a single bedside unit, Calesca can be placed on an IV pole beside each NICU bed or on a worktop for preparing feeds. This minimises the risk of mix-ups. Since it is easy to handle, it can be operated by parents, thus supporting family-integrated care and flexible feed preparation times.
Benefits of Calesca
Calesca helps to maintain the optimal integrity of human milk and to provide a safe, hygienic and standardised method for preparing feeds.
With Calesca, milk can be heated up from three different starting temperatures: room, refrigerator or freezer temperature. Frozen milk can be thawed quickly to refrigerator temperature so it can then be portioned and used throughout the day.
It accommodates all Medela bottles and most containers up to 250ml, as well as syringes from 1ml to 60ml. Calesca keeps milk warm for up to 30 minutes after the completion of a warming cycle without compromising milk integrity.
By circulating warm air in an enclosed chamber, Calesca eliminates the risk of contamination through contact with water.
