One out of ten babies are born too soon, as many as 15 million babies each year. From birth, many of these babies rely on intensive care for survival, and we at Neola Medical aim to give preterm born infants a better start in life. The 17th of November it is World Prematurity Day, and in a new article, BioStock, highlights this important day and draws attention to some of the Swedish life science industry’s contribution to preterm babies getting a better start in life. Among others, Neola Medical is noticed and the medical device Neola®, a lung monitor with the potential to upgrade the care of this sensitive patient group.
The 17th of November it is the World Prematurity Day and we think of the 15 million babies that are born too soon each year. In an interview with Dr. Pontus Johansson, neonatal intensive care doctor, in Direkt Studios he talks about preterm born infants and the importance of new innovations like Neola®.
In a new article BioStock also highlights this important day: “Preterm births are the leading cause of death globally for children under the age of five. Every tenth child – about 15 million children – is born prematurely worldwide. World Prematurity Day on 17 November is created to raise awareness of preterm babies. BioStock draws attention to some of the Swedish life science industry’s contribution to preterm babies getting a better start in life. Thanks to medical technology and improved neonatal care, preterm babies today have very good chances of survival.”
