One of the largest concerns regarding physiologic stability is temperature management. The prospect of being moved from a transporter to the MRI table and undergoing what may be a lengthy MRI study puts the neonate at risk for hypothermia.

What interventions are included in your protocol to help maintain euthermia during MRI?
