Safer Birth

Vitenskapelig tittel:

Safer Birth

Det forelå en positiv sakkyndig vurdering av prosjekt ved komiteens behandling av saken. Prosjektomtale Haydom Lutheran Hospital is one of eight sites in the Tanzanian “Helping Babies Breathe” evaluation program to reduce perinatal mortality initiated by Laerdal Global Health AS. Observational data shows that infants with abnormal fetal heart rate record and who require face mask ventilation are more likely to die, particularly when interventions are delayed or prolonged. The objectives of the project "Safer Birth" are to compare different devices for intermittent fetal heart rate assessment related to perinatal outcome, define the normal cardio-respiratory adaption at birth, determine ventilation properties beneficial for neonatal outcome, factors contributing to the need for prolonged face mask ventilation support, and to compare different devices for newborn face mask ventilation related to neonatal outcome. The planned research project is sponsored by Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine and Laerdal Global Health AS and will consist of four parts conducted at Haydom Lutheran Hospital in the time period 2013 – 2016. 1. A descriptive and analytic observational cohort study using an automatic fetal heart rate monitor and a resuscitation monitor to capture and store biomedical signal data during labor and extention through neonatal cardio-respiratory adaption and resuscitation. 2. Training interventions to narrow knowledge and skills gaps identified. 3. Randomized controlled trials comparing different equipment for fetal heart rate assessment during labor and different methods of face mask ventilation applications. 4. Quantitative and qualitative evaluation of feasibility, acceptability, and user-friendliness of the different equipment in use.

The approved ongoing project “Towards MDG 4 & 5: Implementing “Helping Babies Breathe” and “Helping Mothers Survive” to improve Perinatal and Maternal outcome at Haydom Lutheran Hospital” is granted 358,747 US $ from the “Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine”. This budget covers local capacity building and ongoing basic project management and personnel costs. In addition, specific developing costs related to “Safer Birth” will be covered by “Laerdal Global Health” as specified in the Research protocol.

We will seek seek further funding from GLOBVAC with deadline February 13th this year.
