Abstract

The present invention proposes a technique that provides flexibility to convert a warmer to an incubator. The technique includes a removable, transparent and disposable hood, which has umbrella like ribs to form desired shape. The hood is attached to the warmer like bassinet to form the incubator. This reduces expense of ownership and improvises cleaning ability of the incubator. The invention provides flexibility to convert the incubator to warmer with limited overheads.

The invention generally relates to an incubator and more particularly to a disposable hood for the incubator.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Generally, an incubator includes an expensive double or single wall hood, which is difficult to be cleaned.

A conventional technique includes omni bed as warmer incubator in one equipment approach.

Another conventional technique includes disposable hood as single piece construction.

However, the conventional techniques utilize expensive hood for the incubator.

It would be desirable to have an efficient technique to include cost effective hood for the incubator.
