New Cord Clamp Timer in the NeoCue

Exciting new feature in the NeoCue! We have added a new cord clamp timer to help clinicians track when the cord is clamped. It also reminds clinicians that the recommended time to clamp is three minutes, enabling babies to have more iron and more blood to help keep their blood volume and pressure up to help vital organs such as the brain.  Contact us today to learn more.

Impact of a novel decision support tool on adherence to Neonatal Resuscitation Program algorithm

Studies have shown that healthcare professionals (HCPs) display a 16-55% error rate in adherence to the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) algorithm. The aim of this study was to evaluate adherence to the Neonatal Resuscitation Program algorithm by subjects working from memory as compared to subjects using a decision support tool that provides auditory and visual prompts to guide implementation of the Neonatal Resuscitation Program algorithm during simulated neonatal resuscitation.

Clot-Busting Inventor Breaks Barriers for Medtech Entrepreneurs

A typical entrepreneur accepted into the competitive startup incubator at the Fogarty Institute for Innovation in Mountain View, CA might be an engineer from the Stanford Biodesign Program, a formal academic program that trains students to invent medical devices. But Dr. Thomas J. Fogarty, who founded the Fogarty Institute in 2007, says he’d be equally open to a great idea that came from a hospital nurse, or even an orderly.  Read More
