Live From The Neonatal ICU Via iPad: It’s BabyTime

first_imgRelated Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces brian s hall Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles is now using iPads and FaceTime to allow mothers to bond with premature or critically ill newborns in the intensive care unit.Yes, it’s a savvy implementation of mobile computing technology. It is also unmistakably heartwarming, even in the context of mothers and babies hospitalized on different floors, unable to see each other except via screen. The hospital calls the project BabyTime. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img Tags:#Apple#iPad Images courtesy of Maxine Dunitz Children’s Health Center at Cedars-Sinai Mothers who are confined to recovery rooms following delivery, typically because of a cesarean section or other complications, often can’t see their newborns in the intensive care unit for 2-3 days. “With BabyTime, the new mother can now see their baby in about 2-3 hours,” Yvonne Kidder, a clinical nurse in the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), told me:BabyTime’s been wonderful. For mothers, to see their baby, this absolutely lessens their anxiety. For the fathers, who can become overwhelmed with all the information they are receiving, BabyTime bridges the gap and allows for a direct line between mother and caregivers. Approximately 20% to 30% of mothers who undergo a cesarian section are not initially well enough to travel from their bed to the NICU. Once an infant is admitted to the NICU, the hospital sets up a iPad next to the baby’s incubator and provides a second iPad to the new mother.  A NICU nurse will explain to the mother over BabyTime chat what “all the lines and tubes” connected to their child are and “answer any questions the mother may have about her baby’s care and well-being.”The program went live this February. The hospital makes the service available for “all in-house deliveries.” New mothers can request a BabyTime chat at any time, although only twice a day. The hospital uses a secure connection for these video communications.Mothers can also watch as nurses and doctors treat their newborn in the NICU — and can even ask questions and make suggestions.Charles F. Simmons, Jr., chair of the hospital’s pediatrics department, said in a statement:BabyTime will help bridge communication with the family and the baby’s medical team and is an excellent use of technology to help new mothers bond with their babies, even when they cannot be physically at their babies’ bedside.

Really I like that spirit he has, he has talent but above all his attitude, his energy, his commitment and his behaviour. “He’s one player who is angry when he is not playing but I like that. “I like that player because when they are angry they are asking you to play, when you decide that they play today they know they have a commitment to give what you need and he is one player, he is improving. “I want to be calm with him, he is humble and continuing improving and growing up with us.” last_img read more
