    High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation

    Your are setting high tidal volumes on HFOV. Usual TV on HFOV is between 1.5 -2.5 ml/kg. As a recommendation for very small babies you start with frequency of 12-15. In VG mode changing the Hz is not going to make any meaningful difference as your tidal volume is already guaranteed. there are studies about safety and Benefits of HFOV in preterm population. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/bye/rQoPWwoRrXS9-i-wudNgpQDxudhWudNzlXNiZip9Ei7ym67VZR0R-g0VOg08A6h9Ei4L3BUgWwNG0it.

    99nicu Poll: use of inotropes in preterm infants

    premature infant have myocardial dysfunction in first 24 hours, using dobutamine after NS 10 ml/kg is better choice. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2672709/ After 24 hours dopamine is better. Inotropes should be used when really needed clinically. Treating just numbers is not recommended.

    Ciproxin in neonates

    We also use Ciproflox in our unit. Results are promising without any major side effects.

    Base deficit and the use of bicarbonate/buffer.

    Dear All, I am new to this forum. In our unit it was frequently used on almost every baby 3-4 years back. But recently the trend has changed and it is rarely used. I prefer using it in sick VLBW babies, with PH below 7.2, and BD of more than -10. Regards
