Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Premature baby and nurse. 5-day- old baby that was born 10 weeks prematurely, being cared for in an incubator by a nurse. A premature baby (born before 37-42 weeks of gestation) needs constant monitoring in a contained and controlled environment. Its immune system and internal organs will still be developing and it will have problems maintaining its body temperature. It will be given antibiotic drugs and require intravenous drips and feeding tubes. The incubator allows access for the nurse to care for the baby, while maintaining the temperature, humidity and oxygen levels. This is an Isolette incubator from Hill-Rom. Photographed in 2002 at St Richard's Hospital, Chichester, UK.
