    NeoMate is an award-winning smartphone app that helps NICU doctors and nurses to provide the best possible care for unwell babies in the hospital setting. The app offers drug and fluid calculations, guides, and concise checklists to guide acute neonatal intensive care. NeoMate is based upon established guidelines used by the London Neonatal Transfer Service (NTS), an organisation that transfers unwell babies between neonatal units in London and the South East of England. By standardising the care given to babies, it is hoped that the app will improve safety by reducing variability of prescribing practices and local guidelines between different units.

    The "PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIC EXAM: A NEURODEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH" uses over 145 video demonstrations and narrative descriptions in an online tutorial. It presents the neurological examination of the pediatric patient as couched within the context of neurodevelopmental milestones for Newborns, 3 month-olds, 6 month-olds, 12 month-olds, 18 month-olds, and 2-and-a-half year-olds. Use the Table of Contents on the left to access these tutorials. In assessing the child’s developmental level, the examiner must know the age when key social, motor, and language skills are normally acquired. The normal neurological findings one would expect for a newborn are certainly different than a 2, 6 or 12-month-old infant. Obtaining developmental milestones is an important reflection of the maturation of the child's nervous system, and assessing development is an essential part of the pediatric neurological examination. Delay in obtaining developmental milestones and abnormal patterns of development are important indicators of underlying neurological disease. This "Internet Accessible Tutorial for Medical Neuroscience in the Pediatric Neurologic Examination" is authored by the University of Nebraska Medical Center. College of Medicine (Paul D. Larsen, MD) and the University of Utah School of Medicine (Suzanne S. Stensaas, PhD).

    A collective of the world’s leading newborn brain care providers have come together and launched the Newborn Brain Society (NBS). This new organization is focused on advancing newborn brain care through international multidisciplinary collaboration, education, and innovation. With founding leadership representation from prestigious programs such as Yale, Duke, Harvard, and UCSF, international representation from Canada, Brazil, and Ireland, and parent collaboration through the Hope for HIE Foundation, the goal is to bring together the resources of many programs to move the field forward in previously unattainable ways.

    BACKGROUND This is to bring to notice that, India is leading in the world with number of preterm babies. As you know, they are at high risk for developmental disability and to large extent a life long problem. Presently the national program is aimed at reducing mortality and is successful to considerable extent. But this is increasing the morbidity of academic, cognitive, behavioral, social, communication and other developmental problems. In this context there is an urgent need to protect the brain at the earliest. PROBLEM STATEMENT But in terms of developmental care there are many lacunae in the present infrastructure and some of them are and many other SOLUTION

    Neonatalappen from Karolinska University Hospital is a smartphone app for parents. It is in Swedish (naturally), but even for non-Swedish NICU staff I think it can serve as a "role model" for other similar projects. Looks great and works well

    Need to know more about drugs/supplements and breastfeeding? LactMed can help! Find information about maternal and infant drug levels, possible effects on lactation and on breastfed infants, and alternative drugs to consider. The LactMed database by NHS (UK) contains information on drugs and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed. It includes information on the levels of such substances in breast milk and infant blood, and the possible adverse effects in the nursing infant. Suggested therapeutic alternatives to those drugs are provided, where appropriate. All data are derived from the scientific literature and fully referenced. A peer review panel reviews the data to assure scientific validity and currency. The smartphone app is available both for iOS and Android.

    Targeted Neonatal Echocardiography (TnECHO) is increasingly used by neonatologists in the intensive care setting to support clinical decisions. The technology may be applied for the evaluation of the neonatal heart, brain, abdomen/pelvis and vascular access. This application focuses on neonatologist-performed TnECHO. The provision of real-time information on cardiovascular performance and systemic perfusion, the non-invasive nature of the technique, rapidity of data acquisition and report generation, and ability to perform longitudinal functional assessments have all contributed to in the increased utilization of TnECHO by neonatologists in the neonatal intensive care (NICU). The purpose of this application is to support neonatologists who are actively involved in a recognized TnECHO training program. This application includes videos of probe position, 2D echo loops, color Doppler loops, and labelling of the various structures. This application is aimed at familiarizing neonatologists with basic echocardiography views and aiding self directed learning, but does not represent complete training. This application has not been designed to teach how to screen, diagnose or evaluate congenital heart disease, although it is recognized that neonatologists must be familiar with normal anatomy and deviations from this. Although structural heart disease should always be considered when performing a TnECHO evaluation, if the former is clinically suspected a paediatric cardiologist should always be involved. Image optimization techniques are not discussed as it is usually machine specific.

    Orphanet is a web portal for rare diseases and orphan drugs. Orphanet was established in France in 1997 at the advent of the internet in order to gather scarce knowledge on rare diseases so as to improve the diagnosis, care and treatment of patients with rare diseases. This initiative became a European endeavour from 2000, supported by grants from the European Commission: Orphanet has gradually grown to a Consortium of 40 countries, within Europe and across the globe. Over the past 20 years, Orphanet has become the reference source of information on rare diseases. As such, Orphanet is committed to meeting new challenges arise from a rapidly evolving political, scientific, and informatics landscape. In particular, it is crucial to help all audiences access quality information amongst the plethora of information available online, to provide the means to identify rare disease patients and to contribute to generating knowledge by producing massive, computable, re-usable scientific data.
