  1. I think it's concerning that this baby who had such bad lung disease to begin with , now has super-imposed covid-19 infection. I haven't encountered a new NICU covid-19 infection (yet), but wondering if micro-aspiration is something to consider in this baby. I did have a ELBW patient with late pulmonary hypertension who responded to management of reflux and was weaned off O2.
  2. Subgaleal hemorrhage is usually a medical emergency, babies with this need close monitoring: http://www.cmaj.ca/content/164/10/1452.full.pdf http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12762894
