Admission temperatures following radiant warmer or incubator transport for preterm infants <28 weeks: a randomised study


Sixty two infants <28 weeks were occlusively wrapped and randomised to radiant warmer or incubator transport to the neonatal unit. Median axillary temperature on arrival was 36.8°C in both groups. Target temperatures (36.5–37.5°C) were achieved in 60% of the incubator group compared to 75% in the warmer group (not statistically significant). While powered to detect a 35% difference between warming devices, a more modest difference is not excluded.
