Many infants suffer complications immediately after birth due to the lack of a consistent heat source. This is especially true for low-resource settings, where the majority of children are born at home and do not have the resources to provide their newborn with the necessary care immediately after birth.Radiant Warmer, is a body warming device to provide heat to the body. This device helps to maintain the body temperature of the baby and limit the metabolism rate. Heat has a tendency to flow in the heat gradient direction that is from high temperature to low temperature. The heat loss in some newborn babies is rapid; hence body warmers provide an artificial support to keep the body temperature constant. In certain areas with very cold climate, babies are kept on Radiant Warmer for couple of hours immediately after birth to ensure the baby is stabilized after birth.
