Thermoregulation is the cornerstone of newborn care. This new practice guideline assists obstetrical, postpartum, and neonatal nurses and other healthcare providers in providing appropriate thermal support/regulation in a variety of settings. Using the most current evidence-based research, the practice guideline provides direction for implementing best practices in the thermal management of the preterm, term, and postterm infant. Included is a section that reviews skin physiology with a visual description of skin development in the neonate from 0 to 40 weeks gestation which supports the rationale for practice.
