Development of care for the newborn
The field of neonatal care has seen considerable progress since the mid-20th century. In the past, doctors, would not treat physical defects resulting from premature birth. However, technological advancements and the invention of new medicines and medical instruments have resulted in more and more premature children being treated successfully. Breakthroughs in technology have made it possible to treat issues related to premature or underweight birth, allowing the children to grow up happy and healthy.
With the invention of the incubator, doctors were able to provide a warm, clean and safe environment for newborn children. In addition, surfactants, nitric oxide inhalation analyzers, and respirators enable premature children to survive in the event of respiratory failure. The end of the 20th century saw yet another breakthrough: the use of cryotherapy. Lowering a child’s body temperature, especially in the head, is an important measure to reduce brain damage resulting from a lack of oxygen or blood and to protect brain function.
The exhibition presents the medical instruments and supplies used in neonatal care. It also presents the milestones in a child’s development, including the growth and developmental stages of each age group (up to the age of five). Visitors are able to use this information as a reference for the general development process of young children.
