Caption: A premature baby seen inside an incubator. The incubator is vital in maintaining the baby's body temperature. In this instance, the baby has also been placed inside a sheet made from a laminate of plastic and aluminium. This sheet has a high thermal reflectivity, ensuring a minimal loss of heat to the outside. The baby will be kept inside the incubator until its metabolism and body fats are capable of maintaining its own body heat.
