Hospital Cost ~ $625

A diaper scale is an essential tool for accurately monitoring the fluid intake and output of premature infants and critically ill newborns. These specialized scales allow healthcare providers to measure the weight of diapers before and after use, enabling precise calculation of urine and stool output, which is crucial for assessing the infant's hydration status, renal function, and nutritional needs. By tracking fluid balance closely, diaper scales help detect early signs of dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, or other complications, allowing for timely intervention and adjustment of treatment plans. Additionally, diaper scales facilitate the monitoring of growth and nutritional adequacy, ensuring that infants in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) receive optimal care and support for their development.
