  1. 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.

  3. 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
  4. Thank you! With practice drifting towards resuscitating 22w onwards, I wonder what would be the choice of securing device? Given that we would be using size 2 ETT and NEO-FIT is not recommended. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    App Review: SimNICU

    Very tempting, but unfortunately not available in UK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I am reviewing our current methods and we have a choice between non-adhesive tape, neo-bar, neo-fix and the clip. I wondered if there had been any local/ regional audits looking at safety (unplanned extubations), skin and tissue viability issues, MRI compatibility, infection control etc. Appreciate all your inputs.

  9. I find this web and app resource from Cincinnati Hospital extremely useful to teach students/ trainees and during parent consultations to explain the condition in 3D (saves me the embarrassment from drawing!) Weblink Link to play store to download the Android version.
  10. This is a informative resource for parents with plenty of educational resources and a parent diary.
  11. I’m trying to identify a good fool proof method of securing ET tube and there doesn’t seem to be a consensus. I’d like to hear what methods do you all use on your units and if you could share any thoughts, experiences and ideas here please. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
