Prof. Lin Jin listened carefully to Luo Sidi, a resident in the Neonatal Department, making case report, and made valuable suggestions on how to report neonatal cases.

After the teaching round, Prof. Lin Jin gave a lecture entitled NEC—Treatment Opinions and Prevention Strategies and shared the latest progress in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease based on his own clinical experience.

After the meeting, all the residents said they benefited a lot from the teaching round and lecture. The conditions of the newborns usually change suddenly and changes in the clinical symptoms and signs are atypical. Necrotizing enterocolitis is a serious gastrointestinal emergency in newborns. As its cause and pathogenesis are not completely clear and the diagnosis and treatment are difficult, early identification of necrotizing enterocolitis and reasonable and standardized treatment are of great significance for the rescue of newborns.
