    Clinical scales in NICU really used

    Unfortunately we do not use any pain scales. Still failed to find the best one 😊 Astrid Lindgren is cool! 😊

    Dr. Meddela, what is septic screen? Thank you!
  3. Dear colleagues! What clinical scales or scores do you use in NICU (exept Apgar score:)) ? Silverman, Downes, GCS pediatric, Sarnat? What else? We are rethinking our approaches and willing to be more precise. Thank you in advance.

    Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    @tarek could you please specify the method more extensively? Thanks

    Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    @tarekI am also think that is diaphragmatic eventration. But I know no way to prove it without operation 😊. Thanks for suggestions.

    Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    OK, @Stefan Johansson. I've got the point. Thank a lot. Patient now is in the surgical center preparing for the operation.

    Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    Many thanks. Birhtweight is 2140 grams. About 7 hours after my post CPAP has been withdrawn because respiration and blood pressure were stable. We decided not to feed enterally before surgery. Referring to surgical center scheduled for tomorrow. I wonder is it mandatory to switch to mech ventilation in this case if RDS was decreasind and it is known that only liver is thorax? Would it be more harmful for the baby?

    Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    @Hamed, thanks a lot!. It is a tricky case. CDH wasn't detected prenatally. CPAP was started because of mild RDS and CDH on Xray was somewhat surprising. As the baby was doing well on CPAP we decided do not intubate. Feeding tube was corrected and now CPAP is withdrawn.

    Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    Dear colleagues, We have now 34 weeks girl with mild RDS and right-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Her vitals is stable, RDS is managed well by nasal CPAP. There is a liver in right thorax proven by CT. The Xray is below. My question is should we feed this baby enterally and how? Many thanks.
  11. Ok, thanks. And what about severe umbilical cord acidemia cut-off -- 7.0 or 7.1?
  12. Dear Dr. Johansson. Thanks for the great job and sharing it with us. What do you think how elective C-section will influence the umbilical artery pH? What cut-off for cord blood acidosis do you use in practice -- 7.1 or 7.0? Sometimes we conflict with obstetricians about severity of acidosis, so in the light of this trial does it make sense to say that for example pH withing lower 5 to 10th percentile is a moderate acidosis? Many thanks.
