  1. Update: This is a fantastic QI project with several learning points Reducing Unplanned Extubations in a Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: The Elusive Benchmark. https://www.qxmd.com/r/33575517 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. We started off with 28-34w and for those on neonatal unit only (plan to include delivery room once unit confidence builds up). For this category we use sucrose + swaddle only. However we’ve been facing an occasional vigorous baby, who we have had to revert to premedication and ventilation. We need to find a middle ground for these babies. Maybe LMA/ fentanyl/ ramifentanyl?

  3. May I ask if our lovely community could shared what practices they follow to ensure discharge planning is thorough, please? It could be checklists or any other processes that’s used for a complex neonatal discharge on your unit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Yes please. The dose and concentration of dextrose with dose of insulin would be helpful. Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. May I ask what concentration dextrose do you use in your unit (and the insulin dose) in managing hyperkalaemia, please? Is it a set concentration glucose or do you aim for 8-16mg/kg/min of glucose delivery? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Created this to help current situation in determining place of care/ feeding guidance and for testing. Any variations elsewhere? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
