Eating, Sleeping, Consoling for Neonatal Withdrawal

2019-08-20 20:17:10 | BioPortfolio


The overall objective is to determine if the ESC care approach will reduce the time until infants being managed for NOWS are medically ready for discharge.


This study will randomize institutions in blocks to transition from usual institutional care for infants with NOWS to the ESC care approach at a randomly allocated transition period (from usual care to the ESC care approach).

During the initial birth hospitalization, the clinical site research team will collect data under waiver of consent for infants who meet eligibility criteria.

The site research team will obtain informed consent from the legal guardian(s) to obtain long-term outcomes for eligible infants and caregivers. Clinical site research team members may obtain this consent at any point during the hospital stay for infants who meet the trial's inclusion criteria. This data will allow the protocol study team to short- and long-term outcomes for infants managed with the ESC care approach compared to usual institutional care.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fetal and neonatal addiction and withdrawal as a result of the mother's dependence on drugs during pregnancy. Withdrawal or abstinence symptoms develop shortly after birth. Symptoms exhibited are loud, high-pitched crying, sweating, yawning and gastrointestinal disturbances.

Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)

Continuous care and monitoring of newborn infants with life-threatening conditions, in any setting.
