      Finally, we have now opened the registration to the next 99nicu Meetup, framed as Future of Neonatal Care – advancing the management of newborns
      The conference will be taking place in the very center of Vienna, Austria, 9-12 April 2018.
      The exciting program includes a wide range of lectures and workshops by neonatal staff with real expertise.
      Topics include the Golden Hour, pain relief, genetic disease, NICU design, palliative care, milk banking, lung ultrasound, consciousness of the newborn, follow-up after preterm birth, and hypothermia.
      One new feature compared to the 1st meetup this June in Stockholm, is that we will run a Young Lecturer Session, promoting neonatal staff early in their career.
      Find the program and info on how to register on https://99nicu.org/meetup/
      See you in the Future of Neonatal Care  
      Are you a US-based neonatologists working in a non-academic NICU?
      If yes, we would like to promote an opportunity for you. The startup-company Noninvasix wants to make interviews on why you would use or not use NIRS, and what evidence you would need in order to purchase NIRS-technology.
      For our help sharing this information, Noninvasix will give an unrestricted educational grant to us, helping out with funding of our IT-costs etc. In other words, you contribute to 99nicu funding if you participate in the interviews.
      If you are interested to be interviewed, please email Graham Randall, president and CEO at Noninvasix, on grandall@noninvasix.com
      Interviews needs to be completed before Oct 10... so don't wait too long!

      At last, all video recordings* of the Meetup lectures are now posted on Youtube!
      Sorry about the DIY quality  
      Next year we hope to have budget for more professional recordings, but I hope that you will find the lectures good enough.
      If you value the videos as a good learning experience, please consider to make a small donation here. No matter how small, all donations are mostly welcome to help us fund IT-costs for the 99nicu web site.
      And here - the 99nicu Meetup playlist! Click on the symbol in the upper left corner to switch/change to another video. 
      *not all videos are included as not the recording failed in a few instances

      During the last few weeks, we have had some very interesting discussions in the Virtual NICU, about an infant with 22q11 syndrome, about one infant with osteogenesis imperfecta, and one infant with a yet undiagnosed congenital syndrome.
      The Virtual NICU can only be accessed when you are logged in, i.e. you can only read and post in that section if you have logged in with your username and password. Further, unless you are logged in, the content in the Virtual NICU won't be displayed in the Activity Feed on our landing page. I add two screen shots below, as an illustration what the feed looks like as not logged in and as logged in.
      If you don't want to log in every time, just tick "Remember me" when you log in, and you will be automatically logged in every time you visit 99nicu

      The latest admission to the Virtual NICU is resolved, the infant has a 22q11 deletion syndrome.
      Warm regards to everyone adding input into this tricky case and special thanks to @Jose Ramon Fernandez who suggested the diagnosis, confirmed by genetic testing.
      As the Virtual NICU is a closed members-only area for 99nicu, you need to be logged in to read and add input in discussion.
      Please find the URL below (if logged in you can just click on it, otherwise you need to log in first)

      Both I and @Francesco Cardona are back to regular NICU work after the few intensive weeks of conference work before, during and after the 99nicu Meetup.
      First of all, we would like to thank everyone - delegates, speakers and partners - for coming and contributing to great event!
      The feedback was very good and we feel committed to repeat the Meetup in 2018. In short, we are planning a 99nicu Meetup in April, in Vienna, and hope to make a first announcement in September.
      We are also working to get the recorded lectures on Youtube, this should be done by the end of this week.
