  3. We are launching a new Series - interviews with interesting people within the big world-wide neonatal community. Our goal is to publish one interview per month. First out is Mats Blennow, Stockholm, Sweden, senior consultant neonatologist at the Karolinska University Hospital and professor in neonatal neurosciences at the Karolinska Institutet. Furthermore, he was also a president for the European Society for Neonatology (2008-2014). Mats Blennow took a break from the level-3 NICU life in Stockholm to do something extraordinary...

  4. The software platform for 99nicu.org is now updated to the latest version. This brings a new look to the web site but more importantly, the update adds some new functionalities that paves the way for an upcoming smartphone app. Lets hope we soon can have 99nicu practically on our finger tips! (although the mobile web version of 99nicu also works great, check out 99nicu.org on your smartphone too)

  5. Although the saying "There as an for everything" is not entirely true, I recently found out about a few great apps for NICU staff. In the Link Directory, there is now an App's category. I have added three app's there LactMed - database on pharmaceuticals and breastfeeding Biliapp - bilirubin charts Neomate - guidelines used by the London Neonatal Transfer Service (NTS) Would be great to include more neonatology apps in our Link Directory! Log in and you can add links directly. Or comment below and we do it for you.

  7. Here come some pre-info about a 99nicu Journal Club! By using a template for how to disentangle a paper we plan for an organized scrutiny of a paper over one hour. This recent paper in JAMA for example, about early PDA detection, would be great to discuss there! However, that paper is behind the paywall of JAMA so we will start off with open-access papers published in ADC and Acta Paediatrica. The Journal Club will take place in the Chat room (you see the "Chat" in the menu above if you are logged in). Hopefully we also manage to make a transcript or even get a live feed going out on the @99ni

  8. Today on #WorldPrematurityDay2020, we share a special thought to all infants/children born prematurely and their families. Naturally, we would also like to tribute NICU staff globally working so hard to help infants and families afflicted by preterm birth. Every year, ~15M infants are born prematurely. Most survive to healthy lives but preterm birth is also the leading cause of death in children <5y.

The app is focusing on the discussion forums, the core feature of a web community. The current version of the app is a 'multi-community' app; i.e. a directory of communities using this software. This means that you install an app called "Communities By Invision" and within that app marks 99nicu as your favourite/starting page.

  14. 3rd Future of Neonatal Care Conference In April 2019, we met up at the Future of Neonatal Care conference, AKA the #99nicuMeetup, in Copenhagen, DK. More than 200 people from 32 countries had four intensive days together. Our sincere Thank You to all delegates, faculty members and Partners for making the #99nicuMeetup the event it has become. Without You coming to "share and care", there would be no dynamics, no laughter, and no conference. We share the conference over Twitter (see hashtag #99nicuMeetup).

The most sincere thanks to everyone involved, not the least all of you adding questions and comments in the forums, sharing experiences and expertise. Without you, there would be no community. When 99nicu.org started in 2006, our mission was to create an independent platform where neonatal staff from all over the world could interact and help each other. We wanted to democratize know-how, for the Greater Good. Although there is still much potential what an active online community can become, I als

  25. As you probably know, 99nicu is a project run with enthusiasm and for the good cause. For almost 10 years However, we feel that we need to re-vitalize the 99nicu community, and our strategy is to involve more people in the Team behind 99nicu.org. We search for people that would like to act as "moderators", and people that are willing to start up a 99nicu Pharmacopedia, like a dictionary of short but informative posts of commonly used medications in the NICU. Do you want to get involved as a 99nicu moderator, i.e. work a bit behind the scenes and participate in site moderation and

The survey is part of a Master Project for two students at the Copenhagen Business School. We are two Master students from Copenhagen Business School about to finalize our Master Project.

However, in many countries there is a lack of a product designed specifically for preterm infants. 99nicu was approached by an independent and non-profit project that aims to provide such a dedicated probiotics formulation for preterm infants.

Commonly guidelines are that resuscitation may be stopped if an infant is till asystolic by 10 min of age and despite adequate resuscitative efforts. However, an interesting case series published in ADC concluded that a relatively large proportion of infants surviving despite Apgar score of zero at 10 minutes had a normal neurological assessment on follow-up.
