dc.description.abstract The infant warmer is an open device for keeping a baby warm. True infant warmers use resistance or radiant (infrared energy) heating elements, not heat lamps, which can burn. Warmers are often used for the patients that require the most care, as it is easier to work on the infant on a warmer instead of an incubator which is a closed system. On the other hand, as they are open, warmers do not offer the environmental protection of an incubator from air borne particles, pathogens or humidity variations. en_US
