Hi all I am looking for protocols for the care of asymptomatic newborns born to mothers with suspected Covid. One question that has come up in my unit is whether an isolette 6 feet away ( that is turned off to avoid air circulation) should be used as an ideal physical barrier to protect the baby from the mother and other caregivers. I did see this recommendation briefly at some site online but unable to find it now! Thanks for your help Mike Mike Sukumar MD Rockville MD USA
Caffeine has been used for over 30 years to treat episodes of apnea in preterm infants. Caffeine citrate is considered one of the most safety and effective drugs, with few or no side effects, used in our Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU). Many randomized studies describe the use and benefits of caffeine in the preterm population. Studies based on caffeine prophylactic use in preterm infants, as well as new indications out of apnea of prematurity have been recently published. Despite being one of the drugs most used in our NICU, are not yet available clinical practice guidelines and / or protocols in many of our NICU. Therefore, I invite you to participate in a study to determine the use of caffeine and its indications in NICUs around the world through the following survey. Once analyzed all the surveys, I promise to send you the results. Those you are interested you can send me your email adress and I will send you the survey.

Dear fellow-members! Together with a student, Isa Sundell, I try to collect national guidelines for neonatal pain management. With helpful support from many professionals in neonatology worldwide, we have received several examples, and have compiled a list of the result so far (see short list below). I now turn to you: maybe there are new guideIines or updates we are not aware of. It would be a great help to us if you could send information about such guidelines in your country. Absolutely best would be to recieve an electronic copy or a web-link, or in printed form to adress below, but second best would be a reply to the following questions: 1 Country: 2 Year of publication of national neonatal pain guidelines: 3 Who issued the guidelines (goverment, professional society etc)? 4 The guidelines have suggestions for a) post-operative pain Yes / No other ongoing pain (ventilator etc) Yes / No c) procedural pain Yes / No d) pain assessement Yes / No e) pharmacological pain treatment Yes / No f) non-pharmacologica pain treatment Yes / No The results will published in a report / scientific publication in 2012. Thank you in advance!
