About this book

This volume gives background information on thermoregulation as it applies to low birth weight and sick neonates. The physical principles of heat transfer of various heating devices, such as incubators, open radiant warmers, and heated mattresses, which are used in neonatal care for temperature distribution throughout the body are described and the significance of simultaneous core and periphal temperature monitoring discussed. The chapters have been written by several authors who are well known in the field. The book is intended for use by all professionals, including doctors, scientists, students, and nurses, working in the field of neonatal care.
