Neonatal care. View of a premature baby in an incubator in the neonatal unit of a hospital. The baby is attached to electrodes which monitor its heartbeat and breathing. An incubator is needed as premature babies have not fully developed the mechanisms for body heat control (such as sweating or shivering). Here the tiny infant is having its hair brushed with a toothbrush.
