This partnership has made it possible for the vast majority of patients to stay within their community while receiving excellent care for their fragile newborns. With the continued emphasis on non-invasive ventilation as our primary mode of respiratory support, we average between 4 and 6 babies on nasal CPAP per day and less than one baby per day on invasive ventilatory support. In September of , we expanded our care to provide inhaled nitric oxide for infants with hypoxic respiratory failure and we utilized it on three patients with excellent clinical responses.

What is a Neonatologist?
Our average daily census was Our division faculty have research focused on neuroscience, medical education, global neonatal-perinatal health, and ethics. Current NIH-funded bench research programs are focused on neurodevelopment, neonatal neuroprotection, and biomarker development using state of the art techniques.
We use a combination of in vitro platforms and animal models, including rodents, ferrets and non-human primates in our work. Our work in erythropoietin Epo neuroprotection has translated from bench to bedside, and we now lead 2 NIH-funded multicenter randomized controlled trials of infants at high risk of neurodevelopmental impairment. Enrollment is complete, and neurodevelopmental assessments at 2 years of age are ongoing.
Enrollment is currently ongoing. The specific aims of the BRAIN Program are to 1 Improve neonatal neurodevelopmental outcomes through evidence-based research, 2 Investigate new neuroprotective therapies, 3 Support clinical evaluation and application of evidence-based therapeutics, and 4 Promote educational scholarship in the next generation of neonatal care providers.
Medical Education. In , the Division of Neonatology joined an elite group of neonatal divisions who own and operate a dedicated neonatal simulation program. The mission of the NEST Program is to improve neonatal outcomes through advanced technology-enhanced training and simulation research. Improve neonatal outcomes through individual and interprofessional education, 2. The NEST program works to improve the care of neonates in the Seattle region by conducting educational outreach with community providers and neonatal transport teams.

Global neonatal-perinatal health. Research in this area focuses on the generation, integration, and implementation of evidence-based policy, research and program aspects of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child health and nutrition, globally and in building local country capacity. Our faculty include members who are widely regarded as a global leaders in the field of maternal, newborn child health and nutrition MNCHN who have partnered with a broad cross-section of stakeholders including United Nations agencies such as the World Health Organization and UNICEF, private foundations, academic centers and non-governmental organizations.
A burgeoning area of research in our division is in the area of medical decision-making, with a special focus on parents as decision makers for their sick infants in the neonatal intensive care unit NICU.
