    Skin to Skin - Guideline

    Many thanks Trish Al
  3. Good morning 99ers, I am in discussion with my nursing colleagues over the seemingly ad hoc approach to getting our extreme premmies out for S2S (particularly early on when ventilated/lines/temp instability etc), and whether a more formalised guideline may help (worked for feeding, hasn’t it?). Grateful for thoughts/opinions. Regards Al

    Necrotizing Enterocolitis x Ray findings

    Hi, There is a suggestion of tram lining within the most central bowel loop that would raise my suspicions of a pneumatosis. How is the infant clinically presenting? Many thanks Alistair
  5. Hi 99ers , Given the well recognised potential for drug error on the NICU I would be grateful for some insight into how other Units have approached the processes of education, surveillance and management of medicine errors on their NICU. If you prefer please feel free to email me ( alih.1@icloud.com ) Kind regards Ali
  6. Good morning everyone, On occasion we have taken note of the Pro BNP level in an infant with an hHsPDA who may or may not warrant Ibuprofen. Does anyone use BNP as a guide to the treatment or current state of the PDA as a point of care? Any thoughts on the role of BNP greatly appreciated. Kind regards Al
  7. Hello, I would be grateful for experiences or opinions on the NOX Box delivery system. We currently use the INO Therapeutic delivery system and I am interested as to any differences noted by Units that have switched from INO over to NOX Box. Many thanks Ali
  8. Hi Stefan, Although my unit doesn't use probiotics I have colleagues in other units who do, and paediatric pharmacist. Will get back to you. Best wishes Al

    Kangaroo on the Vent

    Many Thanks Alistair
  12. I would be grateful to any of my nursing/medical colleagues as to whether you have a protocol or set of parameters that you observe when getting a ventilated infant out for kangaroo/skin to skin? Many Thanks Alistair
  13. I would be grateful for thoughts from members regarding what appears to be a creep of use of nitric oxide for the extreme pretermers based on little more than earlier anecdotal successes. Regards Alistair

    Blood lactate

    An off shoot from this topic is the question of whether lactate informs the commencement of enteral feeds. Do any other units follow this practice. We don't commence feeds until the lactate falls below 4. Regards Ali
