If the iris ports or access ports on infant incubators are not sufficiently secure, infants may work their way through the ports and fall. To reduce this risk, users should make sure that the ports are closed securely following each use. When possible, users should pass tubing through the incubator hood's grommets instead of through the larger and potentially less secure iris ports.
