Image-Guided Lung Protection - The concept and clinical application examples

This lecture provides an introduction into the challenges of assessing lung recruitability and finding best PEEP, describes the most commonly used EIT-based images and parameters, and how they may be used to support these clinical tasks. Clinical application examples are presented to illustrate the patient’s heterogenous responses to the same manoeuvre and to discuss why the individual responses are so different.

Optimising Perinatal Transition & Family Integrated Care in the Delivery Room with Dr. Paul Cawley

In our webinar we’ll explore the evidence and practicalities of early newborn care – focusing on the needs of the extremely preterm infant. Optimising transition from the uterine to ex-utero environment requires both proactive and responsive strategies; whilst focus is understandably on neonatal resuscitation, we’ll consider how best practice medical support and intensive care can be maintained within a parental embrace.

The Neonatal Ecosystem - How evidence based design of the NICU allows for a nurturing environment

Like evidenced based medicine, building a NICU needs to be an evidenced based build. This webinar looks at the NICU Ecosystem and how the infant, its family, the staff, the equipment and the building affect and influence one another. We outline how the physical area can influence the baby and their developing brain in the NICU and how family needs to be accommodated.
