PMID:  8139518     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
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 infants maintain thermal stability. This article reviews neonatal thermal regulation, heat loss and gain, and the thermal response that is generated when thermal stability is threatened.
