Dr. Brian Iriye Shares His Thoughts on the Importance of Regional Neonatal ICUs in Real Vegas Magazine’s Latest Edition
High Risk Pregnancy Center is excited to share one of Dr. Iriye’s latest article publications in Real Vegas Magazine, “Creating Regional Neonatal ICUs to Better Protect Babies and Moms.”
As a specialist in high-risk neonatal and maternal-fetal medicine, Dr. Iriye shares his expert advice on the current neonatal ICU layout throughout Nevada.
Throughout this compelling feature, Dr. Iriye provides thoughtful insight into actionable and measurable ways to streamline care, reduce the strain on mothers, and, most importantly, create a steady decline in the neonatal premature fatality rate, especially for those born under 1.5kg (3.3 lbs.).
“Creating Regional Neonatal ICUs to Better Protect Babies and Moms” in Summary
In his latest article published in Real Vegas magazine, Dr. Iriye compares the approach to the need for regional neonatal ICUs to genuine Rolex watches versus the replica watches that may look the same but do not operate at an optimal level.
While both watches look the same, they function entirely differently from one another. This analogy is so important and is the perfect way to summarize the current state of the neonatal ICU layout in Nevada.
Although adding level 3 or 4 NICUs may seem helpful to babies born prematurely, increasing units, beds, and thus revenue is not the solution. According to Dr. Iriye. In fact, the solution is quite the opposite.
Dr. Iriye believes the best way to create a more community-centered solution is by utilizing experienced care in hospitals that push for a regionalized center approach over numerous medical centers – It is really a push for quality over quantity.
This solution would reduce costs, create a cohesive plan for high-risk parents and babies, and reduce neonatal deaths and unnecessary handicap numbers significantly.
