Temperature is the level of hotness and coldness of a body. It is
measure with the assistance of thermometer. The most regularly utilized scales
are Celsius and Fahrenheit scale. Our body temperature must be controlled within a very narrow range
so that our body can function properly. The thermoregulatory
centre of the brain triggers changes in effectors, such as sweat glands and
muscles, in order to continuously balance our temperature gains and temperature losses. The Normal body temperature is 37° C (98.6° F) and if it decreases
or increases then it leads towards a condition termed as hypothermia and

Hypothermia is
a medical emergency that occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can
produce heat, causing a dangerously low body temperature. Hypothermia happens
as your body temperature falls underneath 95° F (35° C). Hyperthermia is raised
body temperature due to fizzled thermoregulation that happens when a body
creates or assimilates more warmth than it disperses. Hyperthermia happens as
your body temperature falls over 99° F (40° C). Hyperthermia can extremely
influences the newborn children as they cause overheating, maternal fever,
maternal epidural anaesthesia, phototherapy lights, daylight, inordinate
packaging or swaddling, contamination, CNS issue (i.e. asphyxia) and
parchedness. At the point when hyperthermia is serious (i.e. body temperature
over 40°C), the infant can be given a shower. The water should be warm (approx 2°C
lower than the newborn’s body temperature). Cooling devices are not
recommended. If an infant cannot breastfeed extra fluids should be given
intravenously or by tube.

A Radiant Infant Warmer is a gadget used to supply supplementary warmth
to the infant neonate (an infant) after birth. Incubators are costly and usually
available in urban areas. Home solutions include wrapping hot water bottles
around their bodies, placing them over hot coals or under light bulbs. Infant warmer
provides heat to the new born with the help of tungsten lamp but it cannot
control level of hypothermia and hyperthermia due to which many of the infants
cannot survive. This issue should be catered by inventing a cost-effective and
efficient temperature-controlling infant warmer. It is influenced
capable, to financially savvy, simple to utilize and very clever baby hotter.

infant warmer main component includes the heater which is made up of 2 plates
of heat sinks with TEC (thermo electric cooler) embedded in it. The TEC is
covered with a layer of thermal conductivity gel in order to get the 100%
heating effect. The heater is connected to a driving circuit includes (pro
mini, relays, SSR and transistors) to drive the heaters when required.
