Hello friends 👋
Have you ever wondered: who had the idea to give caffeine to babies? We certainly did. Caffeine is an ubiquitous medication in the NICU, and yet I can hardly remember anyone teaching me about how the practice of treating apnea of prematurity using caffeine came about.
This week Daphna and I do a deep dive into the history of caffeine and the pathophysiology of apnea of prematurity.
The articles discussed on the show this week are linked below.
We are also attaching the notes Daphna and I took on the CAP trial and
We are also sharing a presentation covering the points discussed on this week's podcast episodes. This presentation aims to make clinical teaching more convenient if you wanted to teach the material covered on the podcast this week. Enjoy!
