Respiratory function is mandatory for extrauterine life, but is sometimes impaired in newborns due to prematurity, congenital malformations, or acquired pathologies. Mechanical ventilation is standard care, but long-term complications, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, are still largely reported. Therefore, continuous medical education is mandatory to(More)
Legal problems are more numbered even in Neonatology. Hospital policy should establish strategies to limit systematic , environmental and human errors, including solutions to optimize organization and increase knowledge [1].Staff retraining by means of simulation could be a precious instrument. Simulation works through mechanisms that are proper of our(More)
BACKGROUND Mechanical ventilation is a therapeutic action for newborns with respiratory diseases but may have side effects. Correct equipment knowledge and training may limit human errors. We aimed to test different neonatal mechanical ventilators' performances by an acquisition module (a commercial pressure sensor plus an isolated chamber and a dedicated(More)
