  1. Newborns in crisis: An outline of neonatal ethical dilemmas in humanitarian medicine. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/dewb.12214 Courtesy: https://www.facebook.com/tetiana.konchakovska
  2. 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

  4. '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
  5. 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 😊
  6. 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
  7. Guys, do you use 'Downe and Sagar' Scoring either?
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Welcome "Jack". But I must mention the links,resources or any other food for thought concerning the realm of neonatology provided by Stefan and you I believe,- are simply unique!
  11. Here you are: http://www.metrohealth.org/documents/patient%20services/neonatology/Cyanotic%20Congenital%20Heart%20Disease.pdf http://www.metrohealth.org/documents/patient%20services/neonatology/Evaluation%20of%20Cyanosis.pdf and also http://www.learningradiology.com/lectures/cardiaclectures/cyanoticheartdz.pdf
  12. There are so many of them as usual but for schematic approach you may try this one: http://www.ucsfbenioffchildrens.org/pdf/manuals/32_CHD.pdf and I also found these teaching aides very useful by Mark Kadrofske and William Herring [but I just realized that due to upload constraints those files can't be attached along with this reply.I will better try to send you the links instead]. Warm Wishes Always Roy.
  13. http://www.narof.org/ Intriguing site-those issues had long been neglected. Light more light and let there be evidences. Roy.
