Warmth and Comfort

Premature babies often struggle to regulate their body temperature, making it essential to maintain a consistent, cozy atmosphere within the incubator. The NTC temperature probe, connected to a sophisticated control system, continuously measures the temperature surrounding the baby. Acting as a guardian, it ensures that the baby is warm and comfortable.

“Generally speaking, the NICU is kept to a temperature of 82 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit, while the incubator is typically set so that the baby can maintain a body temperature of between 95 and 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.”
