IT MAINTAINS ACCURATE AND CONSISTENT TEMPERATURE Infants with extremely low birth weights are particularly susceptible to hypothermia. When these infants experience heat loss, the physiological responses create a demand that is greater than the normal physiological balance. This is because the infant needs to expend energy and metabolize oxygen to produce heat. This thermal imbalance can cause heat loss and lead to a chain reaction with long-term effects such as hypothermia. Hypothermia can cause a drop in blood pressure, reduce plasma volume, and decrease cardiac output.2 If left unchecked, this can lead to permanent tissue and brain damage, and even death. For a fragile newborn, a difference of one degree can change everything.
