News from New Medical Technologies



Just back from Milano Italy. I have been there for the treatment of a newborn suffering of H1N1 viral pneumonia. It keeps amazing me how low lung compliance can be. In this case tidal volumes of 1.5 ml with a pressure difference of 20 cm H20. The patient was treated with V-A ECMO and could be decanulated after 11 days. The patient recovered and does not seem to have any neurological complications.

I have just created a nomogram for pCO2 in both mmHg and kPa. It can be found under Downloads/pH stat nomograms

The nomograms for pH and pCO2 have been updated.
