The procedure which is followed to provide protection and care to neonates or ill and premature babies by using an incubator is what Incubator Care refers to. Newborn babies need to have a body temperature ranging in between 36.5 to 37.2 degree Celsius. Newborn babies may tend to lose body heat through different processes like convection, conduction, and radiation. The babies born with a low weight or as a result of premature birth have higher risks of hypothermia, hypotonia, hypoglycemia, asphyxia, respiratory distress and so on. Hence it becomes essential to provide them with a thermoneutral environment which is what incubators do.

Such devices maintain an optimal temperature required by the baby along with humidity, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. An incubator such as a transport incubator consists of an inbuilt oxygen supply unit, mini ventilator, IV pump, cardio-respiratory unit and pulse oximeter. Multiple types of incubators include closed, open, portable, non-portable, double-walled, etc.
