  1. Many Thanks @edcarsi for the upload and sharing the article. Another notable study was conducted in Brazil in 2009 (beside SciELO also cited in PMC, available both in Spanish and English) echoing the similar aspects of this perpetual issue even beyond the realm of NEOs: http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S0104-11692009000500003

  3. Just few hours back a very important news article came out on the pages of 'The Washington Post'; slightly beyond the domain of pure academics of the Neos it somehow made a full circle. A must read: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/06/29/against-his-parents-wishes-this-terminally-ill-infant-will-be-allowed-to-die/?utm_term=.e207844d7153

  5. 'Truth is a Corrected Error' Perhaps that could have been our article of 'refrain' long back: https://www.nature.com/jp/journal/v23/n1/pdf/7210858a.pdf (Feeling like Rip van Winkle:) Truth is a Corrected Error.pdf
  6. Thanks Stefan. And concerning the 'formalization' that you had mentioned; I would also like to share one of the most authentic resource we try to follow: http://nuffieldbioethics.org/project/neonatal-medicine Kind Regards. Roy. Postlude: I had mailed you the e-book. Unfortunately our forum upload allows only up to 1.95 MB. Truly neonatal 😊
  7. Hi Stefan, Perhaps you have already gone through; still uploading this interesting article I missed before. The Dutch Experience. Best Wishes for the up-coming meet! End-of-Life Decisions in Dutch Neonatology.pdf
  8. Guys, do you use 'Downe and Sagar' Scoring either?
  9. Would like to add a few more very important links in this regard: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/113/6/1609.full.pdf http://fn.bmj.com/content/92/5/F391.full.pdf
  10. Dear Stefan, Hope you are doing fine. Heartfelt congratulations for amazing grand success of the EBNEO. I am afraid that today, I am annoying you with a stupid question. Honestly at first I was not even confident enough to place the topic in our forum. Probably ashamed to acknowledge my invincible ignorance -publicly. Some how I am bit confused. The problem was simple but when I started to figure it out, got bit uncomfortable –may be for no reason; But then I thought it's better to make it clear the fundamentals from the best person [May be I am having serious problems with my basics]. The problem was framed something like that, tagged with a piece of unnecessary information one might think: During conventional or HFOV with inadequate humidification, whether the length and diameter of the circuit limbs [beside the problem of increased resistance]have got any effect on the increased insensible loss for the extremely low birth weight babies [due to the poor down regulation of the Aquaporin channels (AQP 1-5)in the upper respiratory tracts related with gestational age] or not? Please let me know if I made the question clear to you. I was bit perplexed while facing the same. I truly apologize for the half-dazed expressions of mine. I am eagerly looking for your kind response. Warm Regard, Roy.
