Cutting cord too early puts babies at risk, NHS warned | Society Childbirth experts are urging the NHS to reverse the policy it has pursued since the 1960s of clamping and cutting a baby's umbilical cord as soon as it is born, citing mounting evidence that this may leave newborn babies deprived of vital blood from the placenta. Medical bodies, senior doctors and the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) want maternity staff to stop routinely clamping the cord within seconds of the baby's arrival and instead leave it untouched for anything from 30 seconds to whenever it stops pulsating naturally, usually within two to five minutes. They believe that infants may be at risk of becoming anaemic by being denied the chance to receive as much as a third of their blood volume from the placenta through the cord. Anaemia can later be associated with brain development and can affect cognitive ability. NICE is now reviewing its cord-clamping guidance, which it originally published in 2007.

Rencontres HAS 2010 - Internet, un atout pour la relation médecin - patient ? Grégory Pouy - Echanger ses idées ! Mother sings praises of delayed clamping of umbilical cord | Society Denise Roche vividly recalls the worrying colour her son Callum was when he was born in 2006 after a 43-hour labour. "He was fully alert but looked pretty blue and it was a good while before his hands and feet began looking pinky and normal," she says. Happily, when her daughter, Millie, arrived in 2008, "she looked a lot better when she came out – very, very pink", the way parents want their newborns to be. When Callum underwent Apgar tests, which assesses physical and mental function one and five minutes after birth, he scored just five out of 10. While both were uncomplicated births, Roche's experience with Callum encouraged her to look into the pros and cons of immediate as opposed to delayed cord-clamping. She adds: "I remember staff showing me the placenta while Millie was still attached to me, resting on my tummy, and saying: 'Are you happy that we clamp it now?'. "For me, the key issue was tissue oxygenation, making sure their brain cells are properly oxygenated.

Professionnels : vos patients et les sites Internet en santé Jean-Nicolas Reyt - Blog e-business et e-marketing Relevant initiatives Today, we are a group of motivated individuals and organizations who have the ambition to break down pregnancy taboos and build an infrastructure where experts, medical professionals, academics, companies, NGOs, and patients can come together to share their knowledge and experiences, effectively bringing this issue to the forefront of healthcare priorities. Having been involved with TEDxBrussels since its inception five years ago, we are frequently inspired by the impact that new thinking – and new collaborations between passionate people – can have on old problems. And it is precisely with a new way of thinking and collaboration that we will bridge the data deficit gap. Currently, we are discussing with key stakeholder and experts to build a coalition dedicated to breaking pregnancy taboos. Our advisory board is crucial in helping us decide the project’s next steps.

USA Science & Engineering Festival La douleur Selon la définition officielle de l’association internationale pour l’étude de la douleur (IASP), "la douleur est une expérience sensorielle et émotionnelle désagréable associée à une lésion tissulaire réelle ou potentielle ou décrite dans ces termes". Les patients sont les acteurs actifs de leur prise en charge, eux-seuls sont capables d’indiquer aux soignants ce qu’ils ressentent. Leur participation est essentielle pour évaluer l’intensité de la douleur et l’efficacité des traitements, médicamenteux ou non. Aucun examen, aucune prise de sang, aucun scanner ne permet d’objectiver la douleur : la parole peut être un signal pouvant faire évoluer la prise en charge. Ils doivent donc être informés et écoutés par les professionnels de santé. De quelles douleurs parle-t-on ? Quelle que soit sa douleur, chacun doit pouvoir bénéficier d’un diagnostic aboutissant à un traitement efficace et personnalisé, même si aucune lésion n’a pu être mise en évidence.
