Infants to diabetic mothers (IDM) are at risk for developing hypoglycemia after birth. Glucose level follow ups are recommended to each IDM. However, there are no recommendations as to how long this follow up should be performed for, nor are there "safe" glucose levels that allow stopping glucose monitoring.
The aim of the study is to retrospectively follow up glucose levels among IDMs in order to find risk factors for developing hypoglycemia and determine time and glucose levels that would permit monitoring cessation.
A retrospective study of 250-300 IDMs, born in a single large medical center. Data will be collected as follows: Gestational age, birth weight, sex, delivery mode, type of maternal diabetes, other maternal diseases, feeding mode. Glucose levels as were recorded according to newborn protocol (1,2,4,6 hours after delivery, and then every 8 hours for total of 48 hours). Data of hypoglycemia treatment, if given, will be collected.
Later we will statistically try to determine the risk factors for developing hypoglycemia and the "safe" time and glucose levels to stop monitoring.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Retrospective

This study aims to find out whether diagnosis of Transient Tachypnea of the Newborn(TTN) can be predicted via evaluating pulmonary artery Doppler indices.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether use of the disinfectant chlorhexidine administered to the birth canal during labour and newborn at delivery can protect a woman and her bab...
To determine whether the rate of HIV transmission from mother to infant can be reduced by continuous oral zidovudine (AZT) treatment to HIV infected pregnant women, intravenous AZT during ...
This study will compare a newborn heart rate sensor (HeartLight) that is integrated into a hat with other common forms of heart rate monitoring such as electrocardiography (ECG), stethosco...
The aim of this study is to compare the impact of instrumental delivery on newborn head mark and newborn comfort over the impact of non-instrumental delivery. It is also to evaluate how mo...
At our Baby-Friendly USA hospital, with at least 80% of mothers breastfeeding and rooming-in, it is not uncommon for mothers to fall asleep in their hospital bed while feeding. The aim of this study w...
The placement of newborn bracelets is the most widely used method for patient identification in Argentina.
Based on a review of a large patient cohort, published literature, and 3 newborn screening cohorts, we concluded that children diagnosed through newborn screening with late-onset Pompe disease and the...
To assess the ability of transcutaneous bilirubinometer for prediction total serum bilirubin levels in newborn infants after hospital discharge.
A group O RhD-negative pregnant patient with anti-D antibody at titer 1:2048 delivered a baby boy by cesarean section at 38 + 6 weeks gestational age. The neonate typed as group O, but D antigen was a...
Abnormal increase in RESPIRATORY RATE in the newborn. It is self-limiting and attributed to the delayed fetal lung fluid clearance often in CAESAREAN SECTION delivery.
The event that a FETUS is born alive with heartbeats or RESPIRATION regardless of GESTATIONAL AGE. Such liveborn is called a newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN).
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
A condition of the newborn marked by DYSPNEA with CYANOSIS, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, mostly frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.
A syndrome of persistent PULMONARY HYPERTENSION in the newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN) without demonstrable HEART DISEASES. This neonatal condition can be caused by severe pulmonary vasoconstriction (reactive type), hypertrophy of pulmonary arterial muscle (hypertrophic type), or abnormally developed pulmonary arterioles (hypoplastic type). The newborn patient exhibits CYANOSIS and ACIDOSIS due to the persistence of fetal circulatory pattern of right-to-left shunting of blood through a patent ductus arteriosus (DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS, PATENT) and at times a patent foramen ovale (FORAMEN OVALE, PATENT).
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
