  1. There are many ways you can monitor the performance of your Nicu.the commonest way ian to measure various outcomes, like infection rates, NEC, IVHs, CLD etc rates.

    then you could also measure performance by monitoring research output. You could also use parent satisfaction rates etc

    Quality of care in a NICU

    What are the indicators we can use to check the quality of care in a neonatal unit?
  3. Sun light as a means of phototherapy in neonatal jaundice is in initial stages of development that is what I draw from my recent searches on the net.I was very much interested in the news the day I heard about it. It has been traditionally used in neonatal jaundice here and in many parts of India.In Ladakh we depend a lot on the sun. We have sun warmed room,solar lightening system, solar water heater, solar water pumps etc.So a phototherapy unit working with the help of sunlight will suit places like our a lot offcourse that will mean taking extra precaution for avoiding sunburns and hypothermia.I attach a link which is regarding the successful use of sunlight for phototherepy.http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=14118771.
  4. I have heard about using the sun light for phototherapy in neonatal hyperbilirubinemia with the help of some filters.Can someone throw some light!!!
