Texas Health Dallas on KTVT-TV

The neonatal intensive care unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas is the first hospital in the region with an audio-video system that lets parents who can’t be at their child’s bedside see and talk to their baby any time of day from any computer. A story about the system, called “Peek-a-Boo Neonatal ICU,” aired Jan. 10 on KTVT-TV (Ch. 11).

The web-based system also lets parents see their babies from any smartphone. Dr. Gerald Nystrom, medical director of the Texas Health Dallas NICU, talked about the system, which is aimed at parents whose sick babies have extended stays in the NICU. Specially designed speaker systems inside each crib control the volume of the parent’s voice to soothe the baby and help parent and child bond.
