  2. @Stefan Johansson Thank You for Providing us the original paper.
  3. Yesterday
  4. As you may have noticed, we have opened the registration for the 99nicu Meetup 12-15 June. I hope many of you will be able to come! Click here for more infor! We got some feedback from a member in an African country about the fee for the meeting, which is 5600 SEK (excl VAT) corresponding to ~630 USD, and whether we had plans to add a differentiated lower fee for members coming from middle- and low-income countries. I really wished we could offer a reduced fee but to with a limited number of seats and to cover the costs for the venue, lunches, speakers' travels etc-etc, we need to charge this fee as the general cost level is this high in Sweden. Further, 99nicu is still a project based on volontary work and without funds (and viable business model, but that's another story...). In other words, we have none backing our budget in case of a deficit, and are pressed to go break-even financially. The better news are though that we plan to video-record all lectures and will make those available through 99nicu.org. Given funding, of course!
  5. @talatahmed@sbcglobal.net I see. Unfortunately we do not have this sort of protocols in the level2 NICU I currently work in.
  6. Last week

  8. Thank you Stefan. I will have a look at this Regards Viv

    From today it is possible to register for the 99nicu Meetup 12-15 June in Stockholm, Sweden. The exciting program includes lectures and workshops by neonatal staff with real expertise. Topics include preventing infections, hypothermia, delivery room management, PDA controversies, ventilation, infant feeding, social media, and family-centered neonatal care. Further, you will meet people IRL you may have only met on this URL Although our sole channel for marketing the Meetup is 99nicu.org, everyone is welcome, also those who are not (yet) members. That said, please share the program to your colleagues and within your networks. Click here to download the program and extended information about everything. Click here to register! And... don't wait to long as the number of delegates is restricted to 250.
  10. I have this article. I was more looking for step wise development of this unit barriers etc.
  11. Guess you are referring to this kind of protocol (?) http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/136/4/e1007
  12. Can you please share Small baby unit protocol if you have one. Thanks
  13. Great videos. My only suggestion is look at your abbreviations. Not all are known by everyone.
  14. great work this also can be applied from 4 kg
  15. @Andrej Vitushka this course might be a bit on short notice for you: http://tinec.org/ It is already next week January 26-28, 2017 in Lausanne, Switzerland.
  16. @Andrej Vitushka I know Alan has had courses also in Europe - drop him an email and ask
  17. This is an very recent article on the subject I got emailed from a hospital hygien specialist. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27887754 This is a nice commentary (taking off in the REDUCE MRSA trial, which was in adult ICU's), where you probably find lots of interesting articles in the reference list: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4152419/
  18. Dear colleagues! Maybe someone knows about similar courses in Europe (preferably Poland, Germany, Baltic or Skandinavian countries, but not mandatory)? How is possible to get and brush up echo skills for neonatologist? Unfornunately, I missed seminar from neonatalechoskills.com in Netherlands but currently there is no information about next seminar in our continent. Many thanks!
  19. Just sent by forum message. Enjoy!
  20. I would be really interested in the full article. Could somebody maybe provide this?
  21. until
    We will be holding a New York Neonatal Echocardiography course on 17th-18th March 2017. This is the 8th course which we have run internationally, and the content of the course continues to evolve. The course is now for two full days, including lectures and 6 hours of small group teaching with hands on practical scanning in children and on neonatal echo simulators. Full details of the 2017 course can be found here - http://neonatalechoskills.com/nyc2017.html. If clinicians are interested in attending we recommend early booking since prior courses have been over-subscribed. I am happy to provide further information about the course – members should feel free to email me directly. Many thanks for your time, Dr Alan Groves, MBChB, BSc, FRCPCH, MD Associate Professor of Pediatrics Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Pediatrics, Division of Newborn Medicine 525 E. 68th Street, Suite N-506 New York, NY 10065 alg2049@med.cornell.edu

  26. When discussing asymmetrical IUGR with parents emphasis should be placed on the preservation of brain growth and that body weight will catch up As well as categorising by weight it is important to clinically assess the newborn infant to ascertain whether it is small for gestational age or exhibiting signs of intrauterine retardation. The causes of IUGR should be considered and the consequences of IUGR predicted and managed appropriately (e.g. hypoglycaemia, hypothermia, polycythaemia). 😃😃😃 In nursing the extreme preterm it is important to be aware of the complications of prematurity, which include poor temperature and fl uid regulation and cardiorespiratory immaturity as well as the complications of intensive care such as excessive inappropriate handling, pain and infection. 😉😉😉😉 The skin of a preterm infant is thin and easily damaged and may remain relatively alkalotic. It therefore forms a limited mechanical and immunological barrier as well as providing poor insulation, which is why care must be taken when handling the infant to prevent further skin breakdown.
  27. We trried this hundreds of time together with midazolam and always be ready with naloxone as antidote The good thing is that there is one article about giving naloxone to minimize reintubation in patients given fentanyl as premediction before INSURE 111071
  28. Pleasure guys 3 more to come
  29. I share this article too. Too often we don't mind about neonatal pain. Recent studies about epigenetic have shown that pain damages DNA in fetus and neonate. These alteration are then transmitted through the family. In Italy we have a study group about pain in neonatology. thanks for the article
