Preterm neonates are vulnerable to changes in blood gases. This e learning focuses on transcutaneous monitoring (TCM) and blood gases in the NICU and PICU and demonstrates how TCM is is a valuable part of a personalised patient monitoring approach.

Free to access and endorsed by the European Society of Paediatric Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC) and the European Society for Paediatric Research(ESPR). Available in 6 languages – English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

This multi-media and interactive medical education online e learning will take neonatal and pediatric specialists, nurses and respiratory therapists on a journey within the intensive care setting, demonstrating:

  • How TCM fits in the wider picture of blood gas monitoring
  • The added value of TCM parameters
  • Indications for TCM as well as its practical application
  • How to interpret TCM results and act upon them

Developed by a group of international neonatologists and pediatricians, based upon their own vast experience of neonatal and pediatric care:

  • Prof. Daniele de Luca, Associate Professor of Neonatology, France
  • Prof. Olivier Danhaive, Professor of Pediatrics, USA
  • Dr. Kaare E. Lundstrøm, Senior Consultant in Pediatrics, Denmark
  • Prof. Anton van Kaam, Professor of Neonatology, The Netherlands.
