iNICU - Integrated Neonatal Care Unit: Capturing Neonatal Journey in an Intelligent Data Way.

iNICU - Integrated Neonatal Care Unit: Capturing Neonatal Journey in an Intelligent Data Way. J Med Syst. 2017 Aug;41(8):132 Authors: Singh H, Yadav G, Mallaiah R, Joshi P, Joshi V, Kaur R, Bansal S, Brahmachari SK Abstract Neonatal period represents first 28 days of life, which is the most vulnerable time for a child's survival especially for the preterm babies. High neonatal mortality is a prominent and persistent problem across the globe. Non-availability of trained staff and infrastructure are the major recognized hurdles in the quality care of these neonates. Hourly progress growth charts and reports are still maintained manually by nurses along with continuous calculation of drug dosage and nutrition as per the changing weight of the baby. iNICU (integrated Neonatology Intensive Care Unit) leverages Beaglebone and Intel Edison based IoT integration with biomedical devices in NICU i.e. monitor, ventilator and blood gas machine. iNICU is hosted on IBM Softlayer based cloud computing infrastructure and map NICU workflow in Java based responsive web application to provide translational research informatics support to the clinicians. iNICU captures real time vital parameters i.e. respiration rate, heart rate, lab data and PACS amounting for millions of data points per day per child. Stream of data is sent to Apache Kafka layer which stores the same in Apache Cassandra NoSQL. iNICU also captures clinical data like feed intake, urine output, and dail...

More than 130 million women give birth around the world each year. During pregnancy, changes in the immune system make women generally more susceptible to respiratory infections.

The U.K. government announced on Monday that pregnant women were at an increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19). Speaking at a press conference, Public Health England chief medical officer Chris Whitty said people in the “high risk” category should stay at home for 12 weeks. (That includes pe...

(MEXICO CITY) — Many countries in Latin America have taken aggressive measures to deal with the coronavirus such as closing their borders, dock and airports to foreigners, declaring states of emergencies and ordering business shutdowns.

Cars and trucks continue to fill the streets and commuters throng subway trains, though the volume of traffic is noticeably lower. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and his government have said a shutdown o...

This study assessed perspectives of high-level Tanzanian policymakers on facilitators and barriers to scaling up use of the hand-held Doppler for assessing FHR during labor and delivery. From November 2018 - August 2019, nine high-level policymakers and subject matter experts were interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire, with theoretical domains drawn from Proctor’s implementation outcomes framework. Interviewees largely saw use of Doppler to improve intrapartum FHR monitoring as aligning with national priorities, though they noted competing demands for resources. They felt that GoT should fund Doppler,...

Editor’s Note: For more on the challenges as well as strategies to address physician infertility, please read this Academic Medicine Invited Commentary, cowritten by the author of this blog post. Most of us in medicine pride ourselves on being organized, detail-oriented, conscientious and able to achieve excellent results with enough hard work—and are not used to failure and loss of control. My experience with infertility has been the first time that I truly experienced failure and complete loss of control, realizing that fertility is not a merit-based system. No matter how hard I try, how many do...

In this study, data of 30 pregnant patients aged 18-45 years diagnosed with PDM and 30 pregnant women aged 18-45 years with normal pregnancy and their babies were evaluated. Foetal echocardiographic and doppler measurements, foetal biometric measurements, umbilical artery and ductus venosus pulsatility indexes were measured in both PDM and control groups. The Mod-MPI was significantly higher in foetuses of PDM women. Many influences especially cardiac and postpartum complications are observed in infants of PDM women. The Mod-MPI is a simple and useful method for assessing foetal ventricular function. Our stud...
