Concord generated its first sales in Germany. The University Hospital Dresden became the first hospital in Germany to perform the Concord Birth Flow.
On March 19 the little girl Maira was born in the 34th week of pregnancy with a weight of 1975 grams and was stabilized by the doctors on the Concord Birth Trolley, close to her mother, with the umbilical cord intact. Center Director Prof. Dr. Mario Ruediger explains: “We are very proud to be the first Center in Germany to implement this new method of care, giving premature infants a more gentle start in life.”
Scientists from Leiden University Medical Center developed a new way of working to give babies a “shock free birth”, allowing the neonatal caregiver to provide lifesaving care with the umbilical cord intact, up to the moment it is breathing on its own. Key to this new workflow, the Concord Birth Flow®, is the Concord Birth Trolley®, a new treatment platform with a patented slot for the umbilical cord, to keep the baby close to mom, even with a short umbilical cord connected. The baby gets maximum benefit from the blood from the placenta, up to the moment it is breathing on its own. Learn more
