Noise Meters

When there is excessive noise a babies sleep can be disturbed or sudden loud noises can startle and effect heart and breathing patterns.

There are also long term effects of noise such as hearing and language development.

The Noise Meters offer a visual indicator of noise levels to remind staff and visitors to keep the noise down in turn reducing the harmful influence of high noise levels and reduce stress levels in infants. 5 of the Monitors are positioned throughout the NNU.
