      We want to share that September is the Neonatal Intensive Care Awareness (NICA) Month, designed to honor families experiencing a stay in the neonatal intensive care unit and the health professionals who care for them.
      The NICA Month is an initiative taken by the non-profit organisation Project Sweet Peas, an organisation coordinated by volunteers, who through personal experience have become passionate about providing support to families of premature or sick infants and to those who have been affected by pregnancy and infant loss.
      I add a very fine video, about "a place for beginnings" where "the word Family is redefined". 

    • Our 2019 Meetup will take place at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark,  7-10 April 2019.
      While we have the dates and venue set, we have just started to brainstorm about the program.
      Please share your input on topics and speakers in comments below! As the previous years, we are specifically interested in topics with a high clinical relevance, shared by dedicated speakers.
      And yes, we will keep the same format, i.e. a rather short lecture of ~30 minutes, and a ~15 minutes interactive part with polls, questions and discussions IRL and through the sli.do smartphone app.
      See you in Copenhagen!

    • 99nicu has become 12 years

      Thanks to everyone participating in discussions, sharing great advice and being supportive during these years!

      Amnion Life Medical Devices, a startup company and developer of Amniobed is proud to announce that they have just completed the second round of Seed funding.  The prototype for Amniobed has been built and is undergoing pre-clinical testing for safety.  The company is tasked with building the team of clinical experts to further advance design and development of Amniobed and other innovative medical devices for preterm infants.
      Amnion Life is looking to recruit one or two NICU experts from North America, Europe and Asia each for an initial team of 5-6 experts.  Consultants work in ten-hour blocks on tasks remotely from home.

      Amnion Life will add an unrestricted educational grant supporting to our funds for IT services and for the upcoming meetup in Vienna. Much appreciated!
      Amnion Life is a medical device company founded to develop the AmnioBed, an amniotic neonatal incubator system.
      AmnioBed is a novel, patented and sophisticated incubator that creates a simulated amniotic fluid self-regulating, sterile submersion bath environment, similar to the mother’s womb, to recreate an ideal environment to nurture preterm infants. The AmnioBed is intended to provide critical, ongoing development and nurturing to in-turn decrease short and long-term complications that are common in premature birth.
