  1. We proudly present Paul Crossley, founder of 1in10, as our new blog writer! "Hello Everybody! – My name is Paul and I am a NICU Dad on a mission to create a global (if I can take it that far) support community for families who have spent time or who are currently spending time on NICU with their child/children. My Son Oliver was born in September 2016 at 29+2 weeks gestation at 2.2lbs and suffered a unilateral Grade 3 IVH prior to being born, during his time in NICU we tackled Hydrocephalus, 2 Brain Surgeries, hernia surgery and almost fatal pneumonia. The idea for 1in10.org.uk came when I was searching for other parents going through something similar but unfortunately, I could not find anything, professionally I am a web developer, so I used my skills and knowledge to create what I needed when I was in NICU, for other families who might still be there now looking for the same thing as I was. I look forward to telling you more about my experiences soon! Paul Crossley" Since the parental perspective is so central to NICU care, we feel honoured that Paul connected with us and wanted to share reflections in a blog format. @Paul looking forward to read your posts here! The link to the 1in10 web site is https://1in10.org.uk/ - feel free to share it to parents in your NICUs!

    The 6th International Conference on Human Milk Science and Innovation is a distinctive international forum covering the latest discoveries and scientific and clinical research related to human milk. Renowned scientists and clinicians from around the world are invited to attend this annual event to discuss the scientific potential of human milk and raise awareness of its clinical relevance. Click for more information: http://www.humanmilkscience.org/conference
  5. Bestowed in honor of Dr. Ruth Lawrence's contribution to the field of breastfeeding medicine, the annual award will be presented in Dr. Lawrence’s name to recognize a medical fellow or postdoctoral scholar for their research in the science of human milk. The International Conference on Human Milk Science and Innovation (ICHMSI) invites potential applicants to submit an entry for Award consideration. The Award winner will be notified on August 1, 2018. The Award will be presented during the annual ICHMSI scientific meeting held each September. The Award recipient will receive US$10,000 plus travel costs to the scientific meeting, and will have the honor of presenting their research paper during the Conference. Deadline for the application is 15 June 2018. The conference ICHMSI will take place 5-7 September 2018, Pasadena, CA, US.

  6. We proudly present Amnion Life as a new Supporting Partner of 99nicu! Amnion Life will add an unrestricted educational grant supporting to our funds for IT services and for the upcoming meetup in Vienna. Much appreciated! Amnion Life is a medical device company founded to develop the AmnioBed, an amniotic neonatal incubator system. AmnioBed is a novel, patented and sophisticated incubator that creates a simulated amniotic fluid self-regulating, sterile submersion bath environment, similar to the mother’s womb, to recreate an ideal environment to nurture preterm infants. The AmnioBed is intended to provide critical, ongoing development and nurturing to in-turn decrease short and long-term complications that are common in premature birth.

    Targeted Neonatal Echocardiography (TnECHO) is increasingly used by neonatologists in the intensive care setting to support clinical decisions. The technology may be applied for the evaluation of the neonatal heart, brain, abdomen/pelvis and vascular access. This application focuses on neonatologist-performed TnECHO. The provision of real-time information on cardiovascular performance and systemic perfusion, the non-invasive nature of the technique, rapidity of data acquisition and report generation, and ability to perform longitudinal functional assessments have all contributed to in the increased utilization of TnECHO by neonatologists in the neonatal intensive care (NICU). The purpose of this application is to support neonatologists who are actively involved in a recognized TnECHO training program. This application includes videos of probe position, 2D echo loops, color Doppler loops, and labelling of the various structures. This application is aimed at familiarizing neonatologists with basic echocardiography views and aiding self directed learning, but does not represent complete training. This application has not been designed to teach how to screen, diagnose or evaluate congenital heart disease, although it is recognized that neonatologists must be familiar with normal anatomy and deviations from this. Although structural heart disease should always be considered when performing a TnECHO evaluation, if the former is clinically suspected a paediatric cardiologist should always be involved. Image optimization techniques are not discussed as it is usually machine specific.

    The NICU App allows physicians and nurses to rapidly look up evidence based guidelines relevant to the care of infants. The management of a specific condition, an explanation of how to carry out a practical procedure or reference ranges for biophysical parameters. All this information is available by the cot side without the need for an internet connection. The NICU App makes it easy to reference suggested neonatal guidelines; calculate drug and infusion doses; along with procedural and physiological parameter calculations. A comprehensive handheld tool for medical and nursing staff of all levels.

    This is quiz based on a systematic review on the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis in high-income countries, published a few weeks ago. The systematic review illustrates the methodological challenges to do international comparisons. Although the clinical message is a bit limited, it is educating to read this review from a methodological viewpoint. The document is unfortunately not available in full-text. If you do not have access, your local hospital library should be able to get you a copy. Or ask a friend Find the paper here: http://fn.bmj.com/content/early/2018/01/09/archdischild-2017-313880 Read the paper and then take the quiz but... please note that you must log in to take this quiz (and all future quizzes). DISCLAIMER: We do not guarantee that the "correct answer" in a quizz is 100% correct. Never base you clinical decision on a quiz!

  13. The 24 hour countdown for Early Birds is starting! If you want to join us at the discounted rate, register no later than January 15. Sign up today https://99nicu.org/meetup/registration Why come to the Future of Neonatal Care? Reason #1 Interactivity We believe conferences should be a place to exchange knowledge and give anyone a chance to ask questions. Participants at our last conference especially enjoyed “very good discussions” and “plenty of time for questions”. We use an app to allow for immediate feedback from participants. Additionally, we will have workshops on current important issues of neonatology like parent-centered care, best practice in applying surfactant and simulation training in neonatology. Reason #2 Future Our topics are focused on how neonatology will develop in the future. What skills will the neonatologist need to perform best practice neonatology (echo, LISA)? How can we identify infants that are in risk of deteriorating? What tools will help us treat our infants on the neonatal ward (ultrasound, aEEG, NIRS, MRI)? How should we design our neonatal wards ideally? And how can we work together with parents for optimal outcomes?
