Abstract: Hypothermia in new-borns, which is a serious problem in both developed and developing countries. Heat loss and through evaporation is the main cause of hypothermia in neonates during the first 30 minutes of life. There have been many studies regarding the use of plastic wrap which is estimated to able to reduce heat loss through evaporation and metabolic requirements for heat production. Laying premature newborns or low birth weight on plastic wrap at birth compared to standard thermoregulation treatments can reduce the incidence of hypothermia without causing hypothermia, it is cheap and does not require modern equipment. Safety and effectiveness of using plastic wrap have tested to prevent hypothermia during neonatal resuscitation at neonates.
