What is an incubator - How it helps PEE to thrive in NICU
 
Preterm infants, are babies born before the mother's 37 weeks of gestation. In short, they are born too fast before certain key organs can develop. Depending on the baby's preterm birth, his or her digestive tract, lungs, immune system, and even the skin may be stunted.
 
To help these infants live outside the womb, they are placed in a device called an incubator, which provides the neonate with the environmental conditions needed to thrive in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
 
What does the incubator do?
The incubator is a separate unit, roughly the same size as a standard crib with a clear plastic dome. Because Mr. lacks body fat, they cannot regulate body temperature. For this reason, the incubator can ensure ideal environmental conditions by manually adjusting the temperature or automatically adjusting to changes in the baby's temperature.
But this is not the only function of the incubator service. Incubators can also prevent infection, allergens, or excessive noise or light levels that can cause harm. It can adjust the humidity of the air to maintain the integrity of the skin, and even equipped with special lights to treat neonatal jaundice commonly found in neonates.

Kinds of incubators
There are different types of incubators that can adapt to changing needs. In the five common types of NICU:
The enclosed incubator has a fresh air filtration system that minimizes the risk of infection and prevents the loss of moisture in the air.
The double-wall incubator has two walls that further prevent heat and air loss.
The servo-controlled incubator is programmed automatically to adjust the temperature and humidity levels based on the skin sensor connected to the baby.
An open-box incubator, also known as the Armstrong incubator, provides radiant heat under the baby but has no effect on the air and is easy to use.
Portable incubators, also called transport incubators, are used to move newborns from one part of a hospital to another.
Incubator temperature can vary based on gestational age, functional status of infant lungs, and other health issues.
In general, the neonatal intensive care unit maintains a temperature of 82 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and the incubator is usually set so that the baby's body temperature is maintained between 95 to 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
 
If you are a new parent and you baby is in the incubator, you may feel pain when you see it and find it harder to find yourself physically separated. For this reason, most incubators today are open on the sides, allowing parents touch the skin.
 
With advances in neonatal care technology, today’s prophets have a better chance of survival than ever before. In fact, people who born as early as 26 weeks have an 80% chance of going home safely and rising to 90% or more by 27 weeks.
 
Therefore, regardless of how the incubator is separated, the incubator can provide you with the best opportunities to grow into the healthy and happy baby you dream of.
