neonatal transport incubator

The efficiency of the ventilator, heating, humidification, and filtration in a newborn transport incubator might depend on a number of variables. Temperature, humidity, drift, and gas concentration are a few of these variables. Local sensors can detect and transmit these parameters to a monitoring or control device. The incubator may also be equipped with a little motor that opens and shuts perforations or a moving part that reacts to changes in temperature, light, and liquid exposure.


For neonates unable to breathe on their own during neonatal transport, artificial ventilation is crucial. The MVP-10 transport ventilator by Bio-Med Devices, which was employed in this study, is made to maintain desired ventilation and oxygenation. Heart rate, respiratory rate, and SpO2 readings give real-time feedback while blood gas data and chest radiograph appearance are used to establish ventilation and oxygenation levels.

Even though there are transport vents on the market, not all of them are made to deal with the difficulties of ventilating newborns outside of a hospital. In order for neonates to be comfortable and healthy during transport, they need specific care because they are typically underweight and have underdeveloped lungs. The pNeuton small ventilator was created for use in neonates, infants, and children, as well as use of MRI suites.

Similar to intensive care incubators, transport incubators are lighter and more transportable. They have an acrylic or fiber glass construction that enables medical staff to watch the infant at any time, as well as a sterile tray for the baby. To accommodate oxygen tubes and other medical equipment, they have separate apertures. The temperature of the infant is displayed on a screen on the incubator so that medical professionals may readily keep an eye on it.

Proper ventilation in neonatal transport incubators helps prevent brain damage in addition to preserving appropriate lung function. For instance, cerebral autoregulation, a crucial defense mechanism for severely unwell preterm newborns, must be maintained in neonatal wards with appropriate breathing. Inadequate breathing can raise a neonate's risk of brain damage, which can lead to hypercarbia and other life-threatening problems.

Due to the cooler non-NICU environment and draftier transport incubator, heat loss during interhospital transit rises. Additionally, the presence of vascular access tools, intubation equipment, and cold hands might enhance convective and conductive heat loss. These dangers need to be assessed and reduced. A level III referral NICU recently adopted a transport risk index that assesses the risk involved in transporting a neonate.

Power source

Maintaining the proper temperature in the neonate's environment requires a power supply for the neonatal transport incubator. This is crucial to do in order to lessen the neonate's exposure to temperature gradients outside the body. Battery power or an external source, such as a generator, can be used as the power source for a neonatal transportation incubator.

The use of two batteries connected in parallel is one option for a power supply for a newborn mobile incubator. While the other is charging, one battery powers the incubator. Three batteries can also be used simultaneously. This approach can lighten the incubator while enabling the best possible use of the power source.

A self-contained incubator unit is another choice. This kind of incubator provides a controlled microenvironment and is perfect for moving newborns between hospitals. Additionally, it lessens the chance of pressure damage to the newborn's biological systems. A portable transport incubator is also portable and simple to move. To give the infant a private space, it has a removable baby tray and an acrylic or fiber glass framework. It is also temperature-adjustable and features an aperture for the oxygen tube. The incubator may show the infant's skin temperature on a screen in addition to a temperature control mechanism.

A transport incubator can be powered by an external source in addition to being battery-operated. This is crucial if the newborn is being flown somewhere. This calls for a lightweight, transportable power source for a transport incubator.
