See You Now Podcast25: Innovation HotbedThe Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is not a place any parent anticipates meeting and caring for their newborn. But when they do, they find it a place where science, technology, tiny humans and strong emotion meet head-on. And as COVID-19 spread across the globe, it added another layer of planning and anxiety for pregnant people anticipating how different their pregnancy could turn out should they or their newborn test positive for the virus. In this episode, we hear from Nicole Lincoln MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CCNS about her work on NICI, a radical reimagining of the infant incubator. What started as an idea to create a low-cost, portable, and single-use incubator for our smallest and most fragile citizens, morphed into new concepts about how the incubator could be used in new ways, new places, and solve new problems.
