They said the center's Neonatal Department is the main research unit of its non-invasive high-frequency ventilation offline multi-center randomized controlled research project. 

As the foreign director of the project, Daniele De Luca came to CQHCWC to conduct academic exchanges and offer professional guidance. 

Professor Luca is the former chairman of the Respiratory Branch of European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care, and is the current secretary-general of the ESPNIC.

Zhou Ligang, deputy director of the Neonatal Department, briefed the guest on the department and talked about non-invasive high-frequency ventilation applications with the visitor. 

Luca gave a special lecture on the top issues in noninvasive high frequency oscillation ventilation (NHFOV) researches. 

This covered four aspects -- namely the principles of NHFOV applications, the current status of NHFOV use, the advantages and characteristics of NHFOV compared with other noninvasive ventilation, and a case analysis of NHFOV for newborns. 

Officials said the Neonatal Department of the CQHCWC is regarded as a critical neonatal rescue center by the local government. 

In order to further improve the level of neonatal treatment and scientific research, the department has strengthened its cooperation with developed countries in medicine in recent years.
