  1. Great resources, thanks Vicky!!!
  2. I think I found an interesting study about antepartum and intrapartum risk factors of neonatal encephalopathy. A bit old, but I think still very relevant when discussing the causes of hypoxic ischemic injury with parents! https://www.bmj.com/content/317/7172/1554.long https://www.bmj.com/content/317/7172/1549.long
  3. Ooooh! Cool, thanks!!!
  4. Hi, I would like to learn more about hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), can you recommend your favorite articles in the topic? I can totally read some reviews, or also original research papers if you think they are well written and relevant animal studies can also be interesting! Thanks!
  5. @M C Fadous KhalifeWhat about the paper itself? How do you evaluate the evidence there?
  6. A one day virtual course providing the essential skills to perform and interpret neonatal cranial ultrasound scans on the neonatal unit. This course will cover: · How to use an ultrasound scanner and get the best quality images · Standard images and normal anatomy · Germinal matrix and intraventricular haemorrhage · Linear measurements of ventricular dilatation · Preterm white matter abnormalities · HIE and Doppler measurements · Perinatal stroke Fee: full rate - £50.00 Register here: http://training.ucheducationcentre.org/home/viewcourse/515/
  7. @Vicky Payne- this is a really good question. It has reminded me of a blog entry I "committed" some time ago- not about intubation in presence of family, but about intubation on parent's chest 🔥🔥🔥 link is here below ⬇️⬇️ Of course, the level of evidence is anecdotal, but it's just a reminder for me that the impact on parents could be related to their very unique situation in the Unit. Are they only infrequent visitors there, or maybe primary caretakers? I think that might change their perspective a lot!
  8. On behalf of the 99nicu Team, I would like to invite you to participate in our newest initiative- a Journal Club. The objective of this club is to share and discuss articles of interest to all neonatal healthcare professionals. The article we chose this time (https://fn.bmj.com/content/early/2021/01/20/archdischild-2020-319709) describes the current practice regarding family presence during intubation of their infant in the NICU and examines association with the outcomes (e.g. success rate within the first attempt). Some of the questions we would like to discuss are below. Wha
  9. @Chris van den AkkerI've just found this thread! Seeing you had posted this question some time ago already, I wonder how did it go- have you changed your PN regimen? Please let us know what are your thoughts about it! Any suggestions for units trying to implement this model?
  10. I don't know where to draw the line for ELBWs infants of course, but there is a really nice lecture from our 99nicu Meetup in Vienna about infants surviving at the limits of viability. I have listened to it several times already! I like it because it draws attention to brain alterations that are much more subtle than "injuries" we clinically monitor in the NICU. It clearly shows the need of sustainable research efforts to find more or better ways to protect premature brain in order to facilitate a well-rounded development of structural networks.
