Research into the 'M' Technique® in The Netherlands

In January 2008, a single-blinded, randomized, controlled trial began in the pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Sophia Hospital, Rotterdam. The effects of the ‘M’ Technique® were compared with standard postoperative care following craniofacial surgery on 28 children. Results showed the ‘M’ technique reduced the pain in infants.  In September, a grant was received to conduct a 2nd study – this time an observational study on infants receiving Extra Corporal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) who were critically ill and were restricted in their movements. This is currently being written up for publication.
