Description of a Incubator
An incubator is a device that provides a controlled environment for the care of premature or sick infants. Incubators are typically used to maintain a constant temperature, humidity, and oxygen level. They may also have features such as a radiant heat source, a ventilator, and a phototherapy unit. Incubators are used to care for premature and sick infants who are unable to maintain their body temperature, humidity, and oxygen levels. They are also used to treat infants with respiratory problems, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).
