The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of intravenous furosemide on cardio-respiratory performance in neonates receiving a packed red blood cell (PRBC) transfusion who are considered at high risk of volume overload.
Red cell transfusion is a very common practice in neonates, particularly in preterm infants. It has been estimated that approximately 300,000 neonates undergo transfusions annually. The decision to administer a blood transfusion to a sick anemic neonate is made after consideration of multiple clinical factors, including: poor weight gain, oxygenation failure, and recurrent apnea and bradycardia. These decisions are also influenced by physician preferences. For many years, furosemide has been used routinely by physicians during and after blood transfusions in neonates and other age groups. The rationale behind this common practice is to reduce the vascular overload that may be imposed by the additional blood volume delivered during transfusion. This belief, however, lacks the support of scientific clinical evaluation.

A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled CARBON or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.
A genus of HALOBACTERIACEAE distinguished from other genera in the family by the presence of specific derivatives of TGD-2 polar lipids. Haloarcula are found in neutral saline environments such as salt lakes, marine salterns, and saline soils.
A family of gram-negative, moderately halophilic bacteria in the order Oceanospirillales. Members of the family have been isolated from temperate and Antarctic saline lakes, solar salt facilities, saline soils, and marine environments.
A condition characterized by infiltration of the lung with EOSINOPHILS due to inflammation or other disease processes. Major eosinophilic lung diseases are the eosinophilic pneumonias caused by infections, allergens, or toxic agents.
A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers which elicit potent inflammatory responses in the parenchyma of the lung. The disease is characterized by interstitial fibrosis of the lung, varying from scattered sites to extensive scarring of the alveolar interstitium.
