  1. We do this in theory, (northern ireland, UK) as in, it is written in our guideline that it's a possibility, however, it's yet to happen as babies don't come out of the incubator with umbilical lines. But IF we do have a baby without a uvc in, then we could. Happy to send guideline, the holding part is minimal though.
  2. Also looking to put together an IVH prevention/neuro care bundle. Happy to share what I put together. Hannah.cousins@belfasttrust.hscni.net
  3. Nasotrachael intubation is the more common method used here in Northern Ireland and High frequency oscillation ventilation is used successfully, with and without the use of Nitric oxide. Is your question more about HFOV via nasal intubation/ETT or about HFOV in general?
