Babies born prematurely are generally kept in special chambers referred to as “incubators”, which are enclosures with controlled temperature and humidity. Some newborn babies at the full term also need to be placed in the incubators for special treatment purposes. Since the introduction of neonatal incubators, the survival rate of premature births and newborns has increased significantly, making the incubators extremely important devices in neonatal care at --hospitals. Modern incubators are very expensive making it difficult for hospitals, especially small ones, to procure them especially with economic crunch and resource constraints for capital equipment. This paper provides the details an efficient and cost-effective incubator to meet the clinical needs at low budget hospitals.
