#054 - Journal Club 26

Hello Friends 👋

This week we have a number of interesting articles. We are discussing the long-term effects of antenatal steroids, how resuscitating 22-23 weekers may not make you better at managing more mature infants, the effects of supplemental zinc and much more. We also reviewed an article by Dr. Sam Gentle et al looking at NIMV days and effects on BPD, death and growth. The methodology was super interesting and Dr. Gentle joined us to talk more abou his study.

We hope you enjoy this episode.
