Phu San Hanoi led the first two-day training course for 30 doctors and nurses from Duc Giang General Hospital, Hoai Duc General Hospital, Soc Son General Hospital, Gia Lam District General Hospital, Bac Thang Long Hospital and Dong Anh General Hospital. Dr Nguyen Canh Chuong – Director of Training and Direction Centre, gave the welcome address and opening lecture.

 

St Paul Hospital neonatal department led the second network training course, recognising and managing a sick newborn, 12 doctors attended from six hospitals attended. Dr Thai Bang Giang and Mrs. Suzanna Lubran Executive Director, Newborns Vietnam welcomed the participants from six hospitals.

 

The training focused on common neonatal problems and how to stabilise and prepare for transfer to a higher-level hospital. The doctors joined case discussions, observing the steps the hospitals had taken to manage different diseases with practical session on managing a baby on non-invasive ventilation (CPAP) and with jaundice. The trainers explained the importance of the nursery environment for the good development of the baby’s brain, low lights, quiet voices/no sudden noises, and comfortable positioning. The participants could see the benefits of creating a healthy and safe nursery with the close involvement of parents and the strong promotion of breastfeeding.

 

The participants were introduced to a new piece of equipment, the Beluga Resuscitator. A portable device that makes it much easier for babies to breathe, both during their initial stabilisation after birth and whilst they are being transferred to the newborn nursery or a higher-level hospital.
