  1. And I admit, we take a lot of CRPs... and I would still regard the positive prediction as reasonably OK (but of course, very high CRPs usually goes with evident clinical symtoms too)
  2. To cut a long story short... see the tweet below on CRP as CRaP Here the link to the publication: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/article-abstract/2760411
  3. We would like to welcome Neobiomics, Recordati Rare Diseases, Monivent and Lifecast Body Simulations as Supporting Partners of the 99nicu.org web site during 2020. Supporting Partners give unrestricted educational grants to 99nicu. Grants are used to cover costs for maintenance, development and technical support of 99nicu. As "there is no free lunch", we are very thankful for this financial support. Various levels of partnerships gives varying degree of visibility. As Bronze Partners, Monivent and Lifecast Body Simulations will be exposed on our Partner Page, in our landing page slider, and in the Newsletter footer. As Silver Partners, Neobiomics and Recordati Rare Diseases will additionally have the opportunity to share one "Featured email" once during 2020, and to display an advertisement banner on the web site and in the newsletter during a limited time period. Visit the Partner Page to read about our Supporting Partners or click on the logotypes below.
  4. @chantal - do you check pre/post-feed weights in your NICU? We used to do it some years back but stopped as we felt it added more figures than guidance... Would be great to hear your experience.
  5. Dear @spartacus007, could you add the dates and then also post as an event in our Calender https://99nicu.org/calendar/ ?
  6. Echo! Come to the #99nicuMeetup, Yogen Singh from Cambridge/UK will lecture about PPHN (and run a workshop on echocardiography for neonatologists) https://99nicu.org/meetup
  7. I have experienced this once (diagnosis from autopsy) when resuscitation failed completely. There seems to be a few case reports published, like this one: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/jpc.13494_169
  8. Check this out in JAMA Ped, systematic review on ”Sustained Inflation vs Standard Resuscitation for Preterm Infants - A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis” https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/fullarticle/2760413?guestAccessKey=b2009b9d-ddfc-478a-b681-14a83387dc94&utm_source=silverchair&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=article_alert-jamapediatrics&utm_content=olf&utm_term=020320
  9. @felipeym thanks, I think this portable technology will be the future also in high-income settings. And yes, I think the probe was too large, not the handle as such but the "imaging surface" was like 2x3 cm, so practically too large for convex surfaces like the skull or chest in a small baby. But, this should be possible to solve. I think that the probe size is choosen by the company to fit a the targeted user base of staff working with larger children and/or adults.
  10. We don't measure breastfeeding volumes in infants given iv fluids or enteral NG tube feeds, but we make some assumptions. During the first 1-2 days of life, we don't take colostrum volumes into account at all, especially if the infant is just make some attempts to breastfeed. Later and when on NG tube feeds, we make a pragmatic plan and reduce the NG tube volumes with a reasonable volume. "Reasonable" in terms of ml? For a term infants with vigorous breastfeeding attempts we may reduce NG tube volumes withs with 1/3 per day (i.e. aim to take the NG tube out within 3 days). For a preterm infants, we usually reduce the NG tube feeds with 5-10 ml/feed after a good breast feeding attempt in preterm infants.
  11. Finally... my colleague brought the Butterfly probe and and Ipad, and I took some brain images and echocardiography views. The probe has a large surface and lot of gel is needed to avoid artefacts. Naturally, the quality is not comparable to our real machine. On the other hand, I think that the quality was surprisingly good, almost like the XP128 (back in the days... ) . Looking at the AV valves with color doppler also worked reasonably well. I did not go into any details in the software, but similar to a "real" machine, adjusted settings could probably increase the image quality. I attach two photos and a long axis echo-view (VLBW infant) Longaxis.mp4
  12. Check this out! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21258818
  13. Thanks! Without you and all other members, there would be no community!
  14. A colleague of mine has one such probe and said she would let me try it ( after New years). Will report back!
  15. until
