  1. Many of you may already have come across the "Practical Ultrasound for the Neonatologist" software. Professor Nick Evans at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia, just reminded us the good news that these education programs, one on echocardiography and one on brain ultrasound, is no longer distributed on CD-roms, but is available as digital downloads. Prices are only 25 AUD (about 17 euro) each. The programs are currently only available for Windows. The direct link to the on-line shop is https://practical-neonatal-ultrasound.selz.com/ All profits go to support teaching and research in neonatal haemodynamics. The link to the department is http://www.slhd.nsw.gov.au/rpa/neonatal/default.html
  2. We would like to share the following survey about what you think is preferred probiotics for preterm infants. The survey is part of a Master Project for two students at the Copenhagen Business School. We are two Master students from Copenhagen Business School about to finalize our Master Project. Together with the non-profit organization Neobiomics, we are investigating what would be an optimal probiotics product for preterm infants. Why do we need your help? We desire to develop a probiotic product for preterm infants that are customized with preferred features of your input. Your expertise is therefore very essential to our project. This project is only usable if it includes a large number of responders. We want to accommodate your preferences and therefore we ask you to complete an online questionnaire. The questionnaire can only be answer by pediatric or neonatal doctors. Please click on the following link to get access to the survey: http://www.questionpro.com/t/AMzdSZYVzk

    We will be holding a New York Neonatal Echocardiography course on 17th-18th March 2017. This is the 8th course which we have run internationally, and the content of the course continues to evolve. The course is now for two full days, including lectures and 6 hours of small group teaching with hands on practical scanning in children and on neonatal echo simulators. Full details of the 2017 course can be found here - http://neonatalechoskills.com/nyc2017.html. If clinicians are interested in attending we recommend early booking since prior courses have been over-subscribed. I am happy to provide further information about the course – members should feel free to email me directly. Many thanks for your time, Dr Alan Groves, MBChB, BSc, FRCPCH, MD Associate Professor of Pediatrics Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Pediatrics, Division of Newborn Medicine 525 E. 68th Street, Suite N-506 New York, NY 10065 alg2049@med.cornell.edu

  14. 17 November is World Prematurity Day, a day to bring light on the public arena to the world-wide burden of preterm birth. With advances in combatting infections, complications of preterm birth is now the main cause of mortality among children before 5 years of age. Of 6 millions estimated deaths among children <5y, preterm birth and its complications account for about 1 million. In many countries, there are events set up by health care providers, parent organisations, charities and organisations. In addition to your own local channels, we would like to promote a few web sites with information about the World Prematurity Day: March of Dimes EFCNI The WPD Facebook group And, additionally, find tweets using the hashtag #WorldPrematurityDay (https://twitter.com/hashtag/worldprematurityday) Finally, a video produced for March of Dimes last year:
  15. We would like to high-light that the "European Consensus Guidelines for management of RDS" has been updated and is now published in the journal Neonatology. Unfortunately, the document is not available "open access" but you will likely be able to get it through your library. Although the title refers to RDS, this document has a wider scope and is really about stabilization of a preterm infant. For example, topics like temperature control, hemodynamic stability and pain are also covered. The updated part on RDS now includes more about non-invasive techniques. Here's the link to the reference on Pubmed: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27649091 Find the forum post by @Stefan Johansson below and join the discussion!
