Development of Neonatal Intensive Care in Hong Kong

CY Yeung


Abstract

Attempts to introduce neonatal intensive care in Hong Kong had been fragmented and not supported with enthusiasm until recently. Proper neonatal intensive care was commenced in our Department in 1981 and a combined paediatric and neonatal intensive care programme was established at Queen Mary Hospital in 1982. Our neonatal survival results compare favourably with many reputed North American centres. It is hoped that Hong Kong may develop proper Perinatal Care Programmes and an efficient transport system to further improve our health care deliverance not only to the critically illed neonates but also to the at risk fetuses and their mothers.
