Professor Peter Davis, Chief Investigator and part of the Executive of the CRE in Newborn Medicine, presented at The University of Melbourne’s Gynaecology & Obstetrics Seminar Series, The Goss, this month, taking attendees through the “adventure” undertaken by a newborn baby as it transitions from fetus to the outside world. Peter explained the circulatory changes and lung aeration that takes place in the first few minutes of life, as well as discussing what research tell us about umbilical cord clamping and the impacts seen for term and preterm babies, and during resuscitation. You can watch this fascinating talk of Peter’s overview of this most amazing of adventures here



The Goss Gynaecology & Obstetrics Seminar Series is a valuable way of students and staff of the University of Melbourne gaining knowledge and insights into a wide variety of topics and are held via zoom every Monday.
