Innovation Hotbed

Detail

The 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.

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.
