Application of Infrared Carbon Dioxide Sensor in Preterm Infant Incubator

It is estimated that many parents know about the baby incubator. If the baby is not born at full term, the doctor will recommend that the baby stay in the incubator for a few days. The concept of preterm birth here is not what we understand as preterm birth. Because each baby develops at a different rate, it is possible that two fetuses born at the same age will have differences in vital signs and physical development. Although some babies are born prematurely, their physical development is normal and they do not need to live in an incubator.

Although some babies are born prematurely, their physical development is normal and they do not need to live in an incubator.

In addition to frail premature babies, seriously ill babies also need to live in incubators for better care and observation by medical staff. How long you need to stay will depend on your baby’s condition. Generally, the baby can be discharged from the hospital when the baby’s weight and vital signs are stable.

The incubator can maintain constant temperature and humidity, no noise, and is completely isolated from the outside world. It can simulate the environment of the uterus and is an environment suitable for premature infants to survive. In addition, the incubator is not just a simple insulation tool, it not only provides a suitable environment for the baby, but also plays a monitoring role. Newborns generally do not need to wear clothes when they lie in it, and are connected to various monitoring equipment. Through the incubator, medical staff can directly know whether the baby’s physiological state is normal.

For example, the CO2 sensor in the incubator is used to monitor the CO2 generated by the baby’s breathing. If the carbon dioxide in the incubator is too high, it may cause respiratory acidosis, which is generally seen in the state of its own hypoxia, the baby’s own oxygenation capacity is not enough, or the breathing The resistance is very large, and it is not easy to discharge carbon dioxide. At this time, it is necessary to monitor the CO2 concentration in the incubator in real time. The British GSS high-speed response infrared carbon dioxide sensor (NDIR CO2 sensor) – SprintIR is suitable for capturing the fields of rapid changes in CO2 concentration, such as metabolic assessment and ventilator.
