In 2008, the AAP Section on Perinatal Pediatrics sought to develop leaders among young neonatologists. Drs. Judy Aschner and Linda J. Van Marter engaged a focus group of post-residency training fellows in neonatology, who shared their ideas of a group which would cater to the career and life of young physicians in neonatology. SoPPe now has a group for trainees and early career neonatologists (within 7 years of their fellowship completion), TECaN.
Social & Mobile Media for the Neonatologist:
Communication in the Social Media Age
Social media expert, Clara Song, MD, FAAP had a recent discussion with a well-respected neonatologist in which he stated that social media was a communication tool that would soon live out its popularity and ’dissolve away.’ She respectfully disagreed, noting that that social media is not, in fact, just a tool but, rather, is a form of communication that utilizes useful Web and media tools. Because it originated as engaging and authentic conversation, Dr. Song contends that social media, will evolve further and not simply dissolve away. This entire exchange occurred on WhatsApp. We are evolving, and we don’t even realize it!

Who is Responsible for Therapeutic Development for Infants?
More than 90% of drugs administered to neonates are either ‘not approved’ or used ’off label’ (not recommended for use in infants). Dr. Ronald Ariagno calls all neonatologists to action by asking us to be curious and actively report adverse events to the FDA.
Inhaled Nitric Oxide Use in Neonates with Congenital
Pediatric Heal Information System data were queried for inhaled nitric oxide (INO) use in 1713 newborns with CDH admitted to 33 hospitals. INO use in neonates with CDH is widespread, and has increased at many US tertiary pediatric hospitals without contemporaneous change in ECMO utilization or mortality. The improvement of evidence-based guidelines for the use of INO in newborns with CDH could lead to a reduction in health care costs for these patients
