As a result of establishing Perinatal Intensive Care Centers, the possibility of studying physiological changes in the perinatal period became a reality within one institute. The investigation of neonatal adaptation has been an important scientific field at our department for decades. We detected basic physiologic and pathophysiologic changes with regard to the prevention of respiratory distress and hormonal influence on renal function. We investigated the effect of delivery mode on the transition from fetus to newborn. This practice-oriented course provides the possibility of studying delivery room management as well as the complications of prematurity on the short-term adaptation and long-term consequences.
