Neonatal emergency care remarkably advanced in GCC countries compared to regional and international counterparts

Neonatal Conference discussed ‘Useless and Harmful Therapies and Beliefs in Neonatal Practice' at OBS-GYNE 2013 in Dubai

Dubai, UAE: The second day of the 5th Obs-Gyne Exhibition & Congress (OBS-GYNE 2013) held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, hosted the new Neonatology Conference which discussed topics such as fetal surgery, neonatal shock, as well as  regional therapies and beliefs in Neonatal practice.

Dr Husam Salama, Senior Consultant, Neonatology Women's Hospital, and Program Director of Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar, discussed the benefits of using advanced medical technology in the field of neonatology in developing countries and poorly resourced communities at the Neonatology Conference which concluded today. The OBS-GYNE conference programme continues on 2 April with CME accredited conferences in Midwifery and Obstetrics & Gynaecology and is expected to host more than 100 speakers and 1,500 industry professionals during the three-day event.

According to Dr. Salama, “Neonatal emergencies and Neonatal intensive care, means having advanced technology and highly skilled professionals specialised in Neonatal emergency medicine. Neonatal intensive care units are an exquisite reflection of how much any society is advanced technologically, academically and medically. This is why in GCC countries, neonatal care - particularly NICUs - are extremely advanced in comparison to the western standards.”

The evidence related to Neonatal intensive care, based on medical practice and education, has a major impact on how doctors perform when they decide any treatment related to ill newborn infants, explains Dr. Salama.

“Unfortunately, there have been useless and even harmful practices which are based on no scientific evidence in the field of neonatology.  The goal of my lecture was to discuss common pitfalls in our neonatal practices that have weak EBM and have little value to the neonates or even proven to be harmful,” says Dr. Salama.

The ill neonate is a frightening entity for most emergency clinicians. Even when a general pediatric consultation is readily available, the experience with ill children may be limited. One study of academic pediatric training programs indicated that only 36% of graduating residents had led a pediatric resuscitation, and a handful had no pediatric advanced life support (PALS) training. It is easy to understand why the resuscitation of a neonate can be an intimidating and lonely experience for an emergency clinician.

This year, the exhibition, organised by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, features more than 50 exhibiting companies from 20 countries showcasing healthcare technology and innovation from across the obs-gyne medical sector.  Top exhibiting companies include industry giants such GlaxoSmithKline, Bayer Healthcare, Philips, GE Healthcare, Cryo-Save, Karl STORZ, and the American Hospital Dubai.
