Neonatal apnoea episodes were highly frequent conditions in every Nigerian SCBUs corroborating with the country's well-known high neonatal mortality rate .
The introduction of RIT-incubator and its subsequent application in expanding the capacity of Nigerian SCBUs was intended to ensure availability of adequate number of functional incubators to save more babies.
This cultural weakness affected the SCBUs too and resulted in unsustainable practice.
Annual performance competition was introduced in 2010 to award prizes to (1) the nation's overall best SCBU manager (normally the chief nursing officer of the winning SCBU) and (2) the hospital with the best managed collective group of SCBUs.
The recycled incubator technology (RIT) and associated outreach concerns in this study have demonstrated the significant capability of Nigerian special care baby units (SCBUs) in achieving improved newborn survival.
A typical Nigerian special-care-baby-unit (SCBU) could have a daily census of up to 45 neonates on admission at the same time of which 15 or more would be incubator-dependent very-preterm or extreme-preterm babies [7, 10].
Dr Catherine Norton, clinical director for child health at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB), said babies could not be re-admitted to SCBUs due to the risk of infection.
WHEN premature babies leave the care of a Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU), UK guidelines mean they cannot return, because there is a risk of spreading infection.

As a result the interiors of buildings including the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) of this hospital often get higher than 40[degrees]C of room temperature.
This was implemented by the renovation of an existing office space at the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) complex of FMC-Nguru.
We can therefore conclude that neonatal EFS can be reduced by correcting an existing SCBU building using the specifications of Lab-2 or where the funds could be afforded, eradicated by the construction of entire new structure with the specifications of Lab-1.
