Best Practices for Infant Incubator and Radiant Warmer Testing



A fragile infant that receives too much oxygen in an infant incubator can go blind. If the environment is too hot, even just by a few degrees, it can lead to hyperthermia and dehydration, which can cause brain damage. Even the sound from an incubator’s fan that is too loud can be harmful to a baby’s hearing and ear development.

Learn what could go wrong in an incubator and how to test properly to help enable premature or frail infants to restfully develop and receive medical procedures in a safe environment.
