Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

 

 

I am a Peruvian Neonatologist very pleased to return to 99nicu (where I belong since 2006). I am back online after some years searching a PhD in Epidemiology in Brazil...

 

Now, mixing neonatology with research, I am presenting a couple of ideas to the contest "Grand Challenges" - Canada. Each video is 2 minutes long and I would like to invite you to see and give your vote for them.

  • A neonatal breathing PAD : This video proposes a cushion-pad to offer a postural support of the neonatal head and ease breathing at birth. This device might prevent neck hyper-extension or hyper-flexion. 
  • FIRST BREATH: with a little help : This video shows a device with simplified bellows mechanism to stimulate respiration of the newborn at birth.
How to vote: Click Like button, enter the characters you see into the form and click Vote. If you cannot work out what the characters are, click the refresh button in the catpcha to get a new set of characters.

 

Feel free to share this message and links to other colleagues and friends.

Thank you, 

 

Best regards,

Hi and welcome back!

I like the supporting cushion most and voted for it. I think - a major spinoff would be that people would also take more steps on how to manage the airway. Great idea and wish you have luck with it!

Looks good. Ideas are evidence based.

 

Will definitely vote for both.

 

I had lot of trouble trying to view the videos. Is it possible that you can upload these videos to youtube ?
