WORLDKINGS - On This Day - September 07, 2021 - First U.S. incubator baby in 1888

07-09-2021

(Worldkings.org) For the first time, a premature baby is treated in an incubator in America. Her name is Edith Eleanor McLean and, though she weighs only two and a half pounds, she’s nursed to health at State Emigrant Hospital in New York in a 3-ft. square, 4-ft. high box called a “hatching cradle.” That makes sense because the device, first used in France a few years earlier, is modeled after a chicken incubator being used at the Paris zoo.
