University College Cork
Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork in Ireland (UCC) have aquired a Neola® system from Neola Medical AB (publ) and started a large study on newborn infants at the research facility at Cork University Maternity Hospital. This study is conducted in cooperation with The Irish Centre for Maternal and Child Health Research (INFANT) at UCC.
The study that UCC initiated is planned to encompass approximately 200 infants, starting with healthy newborns and then follow with newborns with different types of breathing problems and with infants within different weight classes. More precisely the study will evaluate positioning the probes on different areas of on the infants’ chests. The principal investigator of the study is Professor Eugene Dempsey, Horgan Chair in Neonatology, INFANT Centre, University College Cork (UCC), supported by the BioPhotonics team at Tyndall.
For the first time, Neola® has been delivered to customer! Our customer at INFANT Center, Cork University Hospital, has now received Neola® and our team at Neola Medical conducted a successful installation and training session with healthcare professionals at the NICU. Now we look forward to the results of the clinical study on newborn infants led by Prof. Eugene Dempsey and Research Fellow Jurate Panaviene that started in the end of 2021.
