BEHIND OUR TECHNOLOGY

The Clinical Evidence

Ameda offers the perfect combination of advanced technology and the time-proven benefits of our legacy technology that has set the industry standards, to determine pumping efficiency. Ameda is dedicated to providing efficient and customized solutions for both clinicians and mothers to optimize the breastfeeding journey.

Clinical Evidence

Ameda HygieniKit Milk Collection System

Ameda's HyginieKit milk collection system features the world's only FDA-cleared two-way barrier that protects breastmilk, tubing and pump itself against contaminants like viruses and bacteria. It also prevents milk from back flowing into the tubing preventing dangerous mold growth.

Ameda Elite™ Breast Pump

With the Ameda Elite™, milk output exceeds that of breastfeeding mothers by Day 5 and continues to surpass breastfeeding during the critical first 14 days postpartum. Milk output from other pumps either lags behind in the borderline range or barely keeps pace with breastfeeding. When mothers use the Elite, its time-saving features help simplify the clinician's role. These specially designed features equate to a reduced need for valuable staff time throughout the hospital stay.

Ameda Penguin Warmer

The only warmer that...

Warms to physiological temperature for proper absorption
Provides continuous gentle mixing throughout warming as recommended by WHO
Operates quietly below the AAP noise level for proper neurodevelopment
Prepares feedings in half the time
  • During heating, it is not only the temperature that breast milk may reach that is important for enzyme activity, but the time of exposure to heat is also critical.
  • The North American Human Milk Banking Association (HMBANA) advocates warming feeds to body temperature for premature infants, particularly those at risk for necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
  • Bransburg-Zabary S, et al, suggests a smarter method to warm breast milk is required to ensure that temperatures not exceed 40° C (104° F), so its unique properties will be better preserved. Possible solutions may include a mechanism by which human milk would be constantly steered during heating1, similar to technology in Ameda Penguin warmers
  • Bransburg-Zabary S, et al. also showed that it was difficult to determine when milk reaches the desired temperature due to lack of steering and creates heat zone islets of high temperatures
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) also recommends constant steering for a period of 20 minutes

Clinical Evidence

American Academy of Pediatrics

Noise is ubiquitous in our environment. High intensities of noise have been associated with numerous health effects in adults, including noise-induced hearing loss and high blood pressure. The intent of this statement is to provide pediatricians and others with information on the potential health effects of noise on the fetus and newborn. The information presented here supports a number of recommendations for both pediatric practice and government policy.

Clinical Evidence

Human Milk Warming Temperatures

Human milk handling guidelines are very demanding, based upon solid scientific evidence that handling methods can make a real difference in infant health and nutrition. Indeed, properly stored milk maintains many of its unique qualities and continues to be the second and third best infant feeding alternatives, much superior to artificial feeding. Container type and shape, mode of steering, amount of air exposure and storage temperature may adversely affect milk stability and composition.
