The targeted audience for this post is mainly Health Care Professionals, physicians in the domain of Pediatrics and Neonatology.
The Swiss Society of Neonatology 2017 Annual Meeting took place in Zürich hospital on the following topic: Challenges in perinatal and neonatal infectious diseases. In other words, it helped understanding “How does Zika affect babies?”. All the presentations were captured and have been webcasted on demand for the participants to go back to specific parts and for the other members & persons interested in the topic to be able to follow what was discussed. The majority of the presentations were given in English although the speakers had the possibility to talk in English or French.
The 2017 annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Neonatology was devoted to perinatal and neonatal infections. Apart from the members of the Neonatal Society, representatives of the Paediatric Infectious Diseases Group Switzerland (www.pigs.ch) were invited to join this meeting, and five sessions were presented on this important topic.

Dr. Matthias Roth and Dr. Romaine Arlettaz Mieth co-organized this event with the help of Meeting Com in Switzerland.
The meeting focused on vertical infections, neonatal sepsis in Switzerland and on controversies about microbial screening and antimicrobial use in neonatal medicine; a discussion with a panel of experts followed the two keynotes on the latter issue, presented by Prof . Christoph Bührer from Berlin, and Dr Martin Stocker from Lucerne.
Definition of vertical infections on wikipedia: A vertically transmitted infection is an infection caused by pathogens (such as bacteria and viruses) that uses mother-to-child transmission, that is, transmission directly from the mother to an embryo, fetus, or baby during pregnancy or childbirth.
Definition of neonatal sepsis on wikipedia: Neonatal sepsis is a type of neonatal infection and specifically refers to the presence in a newborn baby of a bacterial blood stream infection (BSI) (such as meningitis, pneumonia, pyelonephritis, or gastroenteritis) in the setting of fever.
Young Swiss neonatologists and paediatricians were given the opportunity to present their research projects as a short report at the beginning of the scientific program. Prizes for the best short report and the best poster were awarded at the end of the meeting.
– Severin Kasser et al. (Basel) Cortical response to sensory stimuli in newborns after birth – the NociCop trial
The process of vaginal birth prepares the fetus for the extra-uterine environment and, in comparison to infants delivered by planned caesarean section, confers respiratory, cardiovascular and homeostatic advantages to the newborn. The effect of delivery mode and birth stress on noci- ception is largely unknown. The objective of this study was to examine noxious-evoked brain activity a few hours after birth in infants born by vaginal delivery as compared to planned caesarean section. Conclusion: Birth experience shapes nociceptive sensitivity in newborn infants in a stress and sex-dependent fashion.
