Transforming Care for Extremely Premature Babies (Articial Womb) 1.0 CNE Contact Hours

Since the 1950s, it has been realized that infants born extremely preterm (23-25 weeks) could benefit from an artificial womb to support organ development and avoid iatrogenic injury associated with invasive mechanical ventilation strategies. We have developed a system that incorporates a pumpless oxygenator circuit connected to the umbilical cord of fetal sheep immersed in amniotic fluid. With appropriate nutritional support, lambs on the system demonstrate normal growth and lung and brain maturation. Clinical translation of this ground-breaking technology will be presented.
