Thermoregulation is a critical physiologic function that is closely related to the transition and survival of the infant an understanding of transitional events and the physiologic adaptations that neonates must make is essential to helping the nurse provide an appropriate environment and help. Thermoregulation in the newborn thermoregulation in newborns is a much discussed topic all over the world because it has a different physiological perspective i. Newborns are uniquely at risk of abnormal body temperature, and susceptible to the potential ill effects of both hypo- and hyperthermia building on the understanding of the causes of temperature alteration and the physiologic mechanisms to prevent it, this review explores how both low and high body temperature may lead to severe injury, illness, or death.
Temperature control or thermoregulation in the neonate is a critical physiological function that is strongly influenced by physical immaturity, extent of illness and. Neonatal thermoregulation description the neonate has a relatively large surface-to-weight ratio, reduced metabolism per unit area, and small amounts of insulating fat, making him susceptible to hypothermia. Neonates have a metabolic response to cooling that involves chemical disorders that impair thermoregulation (eg, sepsis, intracranial hemorrhage,.
