Having a child that is born premature exposes you to the world of NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Units) and SCN (Special Care Nurseries) where it can seem like people are speaking a foreign language. This app created by the Australian premature baby support charity the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation provides easy explanations to the words, machinery and medical terms that you hear in NICU/SCN.

NICU Words is a glossary designed to provide clear explanations of what medical terms, medical machinery and what medical roles are in NICU and SCN.

Features of this app
-Concise list of medical terms and medical machinery
-Description of roles of medical personnel in NICU
-Search function to help you search for words
-Over 170 words and terms featured

Easy to use and a great tool for parents with a “little treasure” in hospital going through the NICU/SCN journey.
