    The days of the Apgar score may be numbered

    The first study I did many years ago with one of my students was a trial to replace apgar score cause I was Always convinced it is not adapted to prematures. At the end of the study, I found some interesting elements to measure but it didn't make up a score ! You gave me ideas; why not combine some variables from my study to some from the NRAS score to create a new clinical score. The NRAS is not purely clinical like Apgar but very interesting.

    Was adding placement of EKG leads to NRP a good idea after all?

    I admit with all that old reflexes must not be forgotten but I feel relaxed when letting my residents do the NRP when I am looking to an EKG! EkG is very helpful but from time to time , it would be good not to put it to let the new generation realise that old habits are also good !!

    Post-discharge apnea monitoring in extr preterm infants?

    Agree for SIDS risk; Eran Alhaij,adversarial chilhood events are associated with SIDS:an ecological study, doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/339465 But it's not easy in our country to monitor at home till 3 months corrected age ; medicine is private, even post-dischqrge follow up by ''home care'' is expensive. WE only monitor BPD leaving the unit with nasal oxygen .

    Surfactant lavage!

    We use surfactant bolus but never used surfactant lavage I find the idea only interesting in pulmonary hemorrage ; since we have high mortality , Does anyone have experienced surfactant lavage in pulmonary hemorrage?
