  1. 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
  2. British Association of perinatal medicine has issued guidance today https://www.rcpch.ac.uk/resources/covid-19-guidance-paediatric-services Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Very interesting Stefan. Thanks for sharing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. Expert review (to be) published in AJOG https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0002937820301976 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. This case series from lancet shows no vertical transmission https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0140673620303603 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. That would be great! Thanks a ton Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks Stefan. I’ve been considering this too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    App Review: SimNICU

    Very tempting, but unfortunately not available in UK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
