Neonatal medicine was officially initiated in the United States of America in 1973, and in the same year, the American Board of Pediatrics held the first subspecialty examination in the field of neonatal-perinatal medicine. The first Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Tehran began its work with great efforts of Prof. Hadi Samaee at Ali-Asghar Children's Hospital, approved by the Ministry of Health as the first standard center for training neonatologists.

The "Quality Chasm" exists in neonatal intensive care. Despite years of clinical research in neonatology, therapies continue to be underused, overused, or misused. A key concept in crossing the quality chasm is system redesign. The unpredictability of human factors and the dynamic complexity of the neonatal ICU are not amenable to rigid reductionist control and redesign. Change is best accomplished in this complex adaptive system by use of simple rules: (1) general direction pointing, (2) prohibitions, (3) resource or permission providing...

A close connection exists between acute perinatal problems and prepartum diseases of mother and foetus. Good antenatal care of the mother, and both well-established and modern methods of assessing foetal well-being are important in prenatal care of the foetus. Close collaboration between obstetricians and neonatologists is essential to diagnose the high risk foetus. Some medical and surgical foetal conditions can now be treated in utero. Usually, however, the obstetrician and the neonatologist have to decide on the correct timing for delivery of the high risk foetus and the route of delivery...
