Caption: A premature baby in a special care unit. This baby is covered with fine hair called lanugo hair, which appears during the fifth month of gestation. Premature babies are usually placed in incubators where temperature, humidity and oxygen levels can be controlled. Because the coordination between the baby's respiratory and nervous systems is not well established, optimising the atmospheric conditions is a great aid to survival.
