Resuscitation, Respiratory Support & Neonatal Care

Dolfin Junior

An observational study (n=50) to study the use of lung ultrasound to visualise lung opening in newborn preterm babies (<32 weeks) to predict respiratory support

ECLAT

This is a randomised control trial comparing different air pressures used for CPAP following extubation of extremely preterm infants (<28 weeks who have received both caffeine and surfactant)

Project Contact
Investigating Side-lying Feeding for Infants receiving Respiratory Support

This study aims to investigate the efficacy of side-lying feeding for Infants receiving Respiratory Support

Project Contact
Meerkat

The Meerkat Study aims to improve how we train clinicians to carry out resuscitation on newborn pre term babies. This study has now finished and the findings can be read here.

Monitor

This is an International multicentre randomised control trial aiming to determine if use of a Respiratory Function Monitor improves how we resuscitate newborn pre term babies

Project Contact
Neo-NAV

This study aims to develop a new device that gives real time feedback on catheter tip position using the electrical signal from the heart as a guide during and after the insertion procedure.

(In conjunction with Navi Medical Technologies)

Project Contact
Renewal

This study is examining the use of stem cells (given 2 weeks old) to protect the lungs of preterm newborn babies (<29 weeks gestation) with high risk of developing BPD and and evaluating if there is a reduction in the risk of lung disease

Project Contact
Resuscitation Device Study (R-PAP)

To determine if a new Nasal resuscitation device is more effective than the standard mask device

Project Contact
SHINE

This is a multicentre randomised control trial to determine if using HI-FLO prongs during intubation results in babies being more stable during this procedure

Project Contact
Spot on

The Spot On study measures parents level of stress when babies are transferred from RWH special care to another special care unit

Project Contact
Stetho-cloud

The Stetho-cloud study aims to use novel digital technologies in the delivery room to enhance care – in this case a digital stethoscope

Project Contact
The Baby-DUCC Study

This is a non-randomized feasibility study to investigate how to safely resuscitate preterm newborns (<32 weeks) while still attached to the umbilical cord

Project Contact
The Consent Study

A parental survey to examine opinions surrounding their pre term newborn babies having been enrolled into a trial and consent obtained afterwards. This study has now finished

Project Contact
The Cuddle Study

Observational study of delivery room cuddles of preterm infants <32 weeks gestation to determine factors that influence clinicians decisions to provide the opportunity for parental cuddles after delivery and examine the outcomes at discharge of babies who do and do not receive parental cuddles after delivery

Project Contact
The EpiPrem Study

This study evaluates the epigenetic changes that are associated with preterm birth and neonatal intensive care

Project Contact
The FLOW Study

This is an observational study examining how changing gas flow during bubble CPAP affects the amount of support given to newborn preterm babies

Project Contact
The HUNTER Economics

To examine the cost difference between HI-FLO vs C-PAP in regional hospitals

Project Contact
The HUNTER Prediction

To predict the success of HI-FLO in regional hospitals

Project Contact
The HUNTER Trial

The HUNTER trial is an Australian multicentre, randomised, non-inferiority trial examining HI-FLO vs C-PAP use for preterm babies in smaller, non-academic hospitals. This trial has now concluded and the findings can be read here.

Project Contact
The PLUSS Study

This international trial aims to determine if the breathing outcomes for newborn preterm (less than 28 weeks) babies are improved by giving a combination of steroid & surfactant vs surfactant alone

Project Contact
The Secure Study

This study looks at the quickest way to secure lines that are being placed in the umbilicus
