Neonatal artificial bubble

Occasionally, miracles can occur in neonatal intensive care units, but it's developments in technology that have made it easier for premature babies to survive. Peruvian engineer Claudio Castillón Lévano created a portable respirator and incubator for premature babies. This invention helps to save the lives of high-risk babies born before full-term gestation in neonatal intensive care (NICU). The first incubators were used in France in 1880, but Lévano's design, called the Incuven, regulates temperature and reduces risk of contamination to babies. Incuven's patent was published by the United States in 2004, after more than 20 years of research and work by Lévano and his associates.
