  2. Article appears to have moved. Here’s the fix https://www.paediatricfoam.com/2017/05/inotropes/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thank you for asking this question! We use a Philips Affiniti 70 device in our unit (we are tertiary NICU in England). We are on the lookout for a second scanner for pure cardiac ultrasonography purposes. Few other tertiary units in our region use a GE Vivid S70N. Would be good to know what others use and do kindly share your experiences please.
  4. I’m considering use of Microsoft access to build unit handover database at a tertiary NICU. Any suggestions as to how people might have used one/ any available templates, please? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Anyone using safe and time-efficient ways of calculating common infusions, such as morphine/ muscle relaxants/ inotropes/ prostaglandin etc? I’ve come across spreadsheets with weight as variable and some stickers. But looking for ideas and to gain from other good practices too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. We tend to involve paediatric respiratory team/ consider corticosteroids/ rule out pulmonary arterial Hypertension/ consider alternate day azithromycin. If oxygen requirement persisting beyond 40-42weeks, we would have MDT to transition to paediatrics where depending on effectiveness of above measures, they would consider tracheostomy and home duopap.

  13. Another interesting post. Does the risk of minimising dead space and tube occlusion by kinking (if and when left unsupported) significantly outweigh risks of unplanned extubation, breach product warranty and its consequences? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
