Summary: Partitional calorimetry was used to assess the influence of a double-walled incubator (Air-Shields C-86 Isolette) on the body heat loss of eight premature newborn infants (birth weights 1.44–1.89 kg, ages 6–19 days). Each infant was studied in the same incubator with and without the inner wall. Incubator heater output was regulated by servocontrol to maintain the abdominal skin temperature at 36.5°C. Operative environmental temperature was the same (mean 33.0°C) in both incubators… CONTINUE READING
