Baby incubators

The baby incubator is a rigid box-like enclosure in which an infant can be kept in a controlled and enclosed environment for observation and care. This device include heater, a fan, a container for water to add humidity, a control valve through which oxygen can be added, and access ports for nursing care. Baby Incubator is used in birthing centres and neonatal intensive care units. It gives warmth and respiratory support to babies who are born prematurely or with an illness that makes them vulnerable for the first several months of their life. Infant incubators provide low birth weight babies with a hygienic environment designed to control temperature and humidity. They are especially used for premature infants whose underdeveloped nervous systems may lack the ability to regulate their own body temperatures. Incubator maintaining the small environment of desired temperature which minimizes the heat loss. Once the heat loss is reduced, the nutrition given to premature babies will be utilized development of the body.

Advantages

It has a cater wheel for easy mobility. It provides sufficient amount of heat to the body of the infants. It has light weight, Strong construction, comfortable seats and excellent functioning and specifications, have relative humidity option, swivel mattress, all around access, uniform central thermal environment. It consists of three channel temperature sensors with having alarms to derive attention for temperature change.

Disadvantages

It cannot maintain thermo neutral environment if lids are open frequently. Despite it cannot filter the air and neonate is directly in the contact with external environment. Care needed on raising canopy to avoid collisions with other equipment close by.

Specifications

Incubators consist of the baby tray that is enclosed in a box like structure to provide a fix warm environment. The box is generally made of fibre glass or acrylic. The heat generated by heating mechanism is not used directly to heat the body. This heat is used to warm the air mixture which is then circulated in closed environment around the baby. Incubators are available both with single wall and double wall, and is totally depends on temperature in which it is to be used.

The baby should be kept in an incubator only as long as it is needed in the best time frame. Precaution should be taken while removing the baby from the incubator, so as not to move the baby immediately from a comfortable warm environment to a cold environment resulting in a high temperature gradient. Hence when the baby starts gaining weight, it is a practice to gradually reduce the temperature of the incubator. It is recommended to clean and disinfect the instrument regularly to avoid infection.
