Does anyone have any evidence out there on best practice for positioning micropreemies in ML for certain amount of time to prevent IVH? Thanks!

The Neonatal Network recently put out an Evidence Based Review on this exact thing. Neutral Head Positioning in Premature Infants for Intraventricular Hemorrhage Prevention. It's pretty informative.
