NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 6, 2006 -- On Monday, November 6, 2006 at 2:00 PM EST, join experts from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian for a webcast discussion about CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure). These experts will review aspects of the procedure, take questions from participants and discuss opportunities for working with your hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Units to share best practices.

Bubble CPAP or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure is a low-tech, labor-intensive therapy performed on newborns with Respiratory Distress Syndrome to prevent Chronic Lung Disease. Pressurized oxygen is delivered through prongs in the baby's nose allowing continuous lung inflation. With Bubble CPAP, babies breathe with assistance as opposed to a machine breathing for them. Bubble CPAP is a non-invasive technique unlike alternatives (i.e. surfactant and ventilators, both require intubation).
