Improving thermoregulation in transported preterm infants

Infants born preterm (<37 weeks of gestation) or with a low birthweight (<2.5 kg) are at high risk for decreasing body temperature during transportation to the hospital. Hypothermia in preterm infants is a risk factor for increased mortality and morbidity (e.g. respiratory distress syndrome). Therefore, effective thermoregulation during transport is of outmost importance. In the study by Glenn et al., interventions were developed to increase the efficacy of thermoregulation in transported…
