To investigate if the use of a visible respiratory function monitor (RFM) to use lower tidal volumes (Vts) during positive pressure ventilation (PPV) in the delivery room (DR) reduces the need of s...
Most premature infants will not develop retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) of clinical relevance, yet screening evaluations often continue beyond hospital discharge, even for those infants without ROP.
Ticarcillin-clavulanate covers a broad spectrum of pathogens that are common in premature infants. In infants
Prolonged early antibiotics in extremely premature infants may have negative effects. We aimed to assess prevalence and outcomes of provision of prolonged early antibiotics to extremely premature infa...
To compare the time course of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in premature (≥ 28 to 34 weeks' gestational age) and extremely premature (< 28 weeks' gestational age) infants.
The best mode of delivery room stabilization for premature infants at high risk for respiratory distress syndrome is unknown. The protocol evaluates the impact of three distinct methods of...
Given the popularity that LISA technique has gainig in worldwide neonatal units, the lack of evidence regarding its premedication is becoming even more relevant to provide the best care to...
Does polyethylene occlusive wrap applied immediately after delivery to infants born at less than 28 weeks gestation decrease all-cause mortality measured at discharge compared with the sta...
The investigators describe a simple and efficient method to give a premedication in the delivery room, using the umbilical vein, directly punctured through Wharton's jelly.
We propose a preliminary trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of using more restricted oxygen during resuscitation for VLBW infants than is utilized currently in an effort to reduce t...
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.
Diseases that occur in PREMATURE INFANTS.
Preliminary administration of a drug preceding a diagnostic, therapeutic, or surgical procedure. The commonest types of premedication are antibiotics (ANTIBIOTIC PROPHYLAXIS) and anti-anxiety agents. It does not include PREANESTHETIC MEDICATION.
