Saving Preterm Infants with Chemical Warming Padded Jacket

Saifuddin Ahmed of Johns Hopkins University in the U.S. will develop and test a low-cost, reusable warming jacket for use in preventing hypothermia in preterm babies. The jacket uses the non-toxic salt solution currently used for hand warmers and muscle pain relief pads and could be used in tandem with Kangaroo Mother Care in developing countries where electricity and incubators are not available.
