Together with the Medical University of Karol Marcinkowski in Poznań we are carrying out a project to implement the first systemic therapeutic hypothermia in Poland, including the transportation of newborns with asphyxia.

It consists of equipping three ambulances in Poland and providing specialist equipment for conducting therapeutic hypothermia, which is a recognized methodology to improve the results of treatment of children suffering from asphyxia.

The devices providing neonatal cooling machines transportations are available in the hospitals in Poznań, Zielona Góra, and Bydgoszcz in Poland. Our goal is to reduce the occurrence of issues connected to newborn asphyxia by applying two pillars:

 • strengthening the treatment with therapeutic hypothermia already in the transportation of newborns at risk within six hours from birth

• improving medical care and promoting the introduction of best practices in transportation and maternity and neonatal wards through workshops and training for doctors and nurses.
