How can we improve the routine that neonates go through in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) without increasing stimulations? A NICU team would constantly ask this question when it comes to caring for their patients. They would like to improve patient outcomes for neonates by performing less invasive procedures. Less stimulations and agitations are better for the neonate in the long-term.
How can we get an overview of the neonate status and reduce the amount of tests?
At St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Dr. Sijo Francis, a consultant neonatologist, and his team at the NICU also seek good alternatives to already established procedures. Dr. Francis asserts that complementing blood gas testing with non-invasive technology will help the neonate in the long-term. This technology that can provide the physician with a good overview of the neonate’s oxygenation and ventilation status.
