    • Happy New Year!

      By 99nicu.org, in 99nicu News,

      While this year is about to close the books, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year!
      During 2016, 99nicu has been continued to evolute thanks to contributions by you and many others. There are too many to thank by name but I would like to make a few exception.
      I would like to thank our blog writers @AllThingsNeonatal and @kbarrington for sharing insightful reflections on research and clinical practice. I would also like to thank @Amy Holmes for support in the Pharmacopedia project. Finally, I would like to thank @Francesco Cardona and all other 99nicu Team members for sharing the volunteer work with me! Next year, let's meet at the 99nicu Meetup 12-15 June  
      Until then, I would like to wish you a Peaceful 2017.
      Stefan Johansson

    • To improve how you can see and browse updates, the landing page on 99nicu.org is now a feed of all new content, in forums, blogs, Pharmacopedia etc, presented in a Facebookish way.
      You will not only have an updated timeline to browse, the web server will create it for you  (i.e. reducing our work load to keep a first "News" page updated)
      What do you think about the new Activity Feed?!

    • 17 November is World Prematurity Day, a day to bring light on the public arena to the world-wide burden of preterm birth.
      With advances in combatting infections, complications of preterm birth is now the main cause of mortality among children before 5 years of age. Of 6 millions estimated deaths among children <5y, preterm birth and its complications account for about 1 million.
      In many countries, there are events set up by health care providers, parent organisations, charities and organisations.
      In addition to your own local channels, we would like to promote a few web sites with information about the World Prematurity Day:
      March of Dimes EFCNI The WPD Facebook group And, additionally, find tweets using the hashtag #WorldPrematurityDay (https://twitter.com/hashtag/worldprematurityday)
      Finally, a video produced for March of Dimes last year:

    • We would like to high-light that the "European Consensus Guidelines for management of RDS" has been updated and is now published in the journal Neonatology. Unfortunately, the document is not available "open access" but you will likely be able to get it through your library.
      Although the title refers to RDS, this document has a wider scope and is really about stabilization of a preterm infant. For example, topics like temperature control, hemodynamic stability and pain are also covered. The updated part on RDS now includes more about non-invasive techniques.
      Here's the link to the reference on Pubmed: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27649091
