Hess Incubator

This Hess incubator was originally used at the Sarah Morris Hospital in Chicago (later named the Michael Reese Hospital) ca. 1915. The incubator is owned by the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, and is temporarily on exhibit at the Spertus Museum, 618 Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. See Dr. Hess's original JAMA article (March, 1915) for a detailed description of the incubator. Photographs courtesy of Dr. Tonse Raju.
