dc.description.abstract The general principle is that air is processed before it reaches the baby (Figure 43). An electric fan draws room air through a bacterial filter which removes dust and bacteria. The filtered air flows over an electric heating element. The filtered and heated air then passes over a water tank where it is moistened. It then flows on to the incubator canopy. The incubator canopy is slightly pressurised. This allows expired carbon dioxide to pass back into the room via the vent holes and most of the air to be recirculated. It also prevents unfiltered air entering the system. en_US
