Sucrose Practices for Pain in Neonates Part B

Recent studies show that babies in hospital undergo an average of 4 to 5 painful procedures, such as heel lances, every day. Sucrose (sugar water) has been shown to be effective for reducing babies' pain during painful procedures. Unfortunately, sucrose is not used as often as it could be to reduce babies' pain. This may be due to lack of certainty about the least effective amount of sucrose to use and concerns about the long-term effects of repeated use of sucrose on infant de...

Evaluation of the Normal Range of Urinary Sodium Levels in Healthy Newborn Babies

Oral sodium supplementation is currently administered in cases of poor weight gain in infants particularly in patients who have undergone gastrointestinal surgical procedures. The decision to start oral supplementation is based on urinary sodium levels although the level at which to start treatment is variable as the range in normal, healthy infants is unknown. This study aims to ascertain the normal range of sodium in urine specimens collected from healthy newborn babies. ...

Surveillance Monitoring for ART Toxicities Study in HIV Uninfected Children Born to HIV Infected Women (SMARTT)

The information we have right now seems to show that for most babies these drugs seem safe and should be used to prevent infection. But no drug is 100% safe and some babies have developed problems. These problems were found in studies like WITS and PACTG 219C. Some babies think or grow more slowly. A few babies have had weak muscles and a few had heart problems. This study will continue to try to find out what these and other problems might be, how often they happen, and i...

Glove-based Care in the NICU to Prevent Late Onset Sepsis

Babies that get an infection after 3 days of age while in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is not related to their delivery but to the hospital environment. Preventing these infections results in shorter hospital stays for babies, less risk of long term health problems and less health care resources required to care for them. Hand washing alone doesn't remove all bacteria from the hands of healthcare workers, and studies have shown that infections in adults and children admitte...

First Line Antimicrobials in Children With Complicated Severe Acute Malnutrition

Children with severe malnutrition who are admitted sick to hospitals have a high mortality(death rate), usually because of infection. All children with severe malnutrition admitted to hospitals are treated with antibiotics(medication used to kill bacteria). However, the current antibiotics used in hospitals may not be the most effective. It is possible that the antibiotics that are currently used after initial antibiotics should be used first. No studies have been carried out t...

Play Interventions to Reduce Anxiety and Negative Emotions in Hospitalized Children

Hospitalization is a stressful and threatening experience, which can be emotionally devastating to children. Hospital play interventions have been widely used to prepare children for invasive medical procedures and hospitalization. Nevertheless, there is an imperative need for rigorous empirical scrutiny of the effectiveness of hospital play interventions, in particular, using play activities to ease the psychological burden of hospitalized children. This study tested the effec...

OPTI-Prem: Optimising Neonatal Service Provision for Preterm Babies Born Between 27 and 31 Weeks of Gestation in England

Premature babies, born several weeks before their due date, are often very ill in the first weeks and months of life, compared with those born at full term. Because babies' brains and bodies are still developing at this time, early birth puts them at increased risk of later problems with health and development. It is important that we do everything we can to try to improve the overall health of these children. Not only will this help children and families, but it will also help...

Blood Pressure in Adolescents With PReclampsia and Eclampsia.

The objective is to evaluate the basal levels of blood pressure during pregnancy and determine if there is any in...

A Study On the Risk of Nosocomial Infection in Mechanically Ventilated Neonate In NICU of Assiut University Children Hospital (Nicu Eta)

Hospital acquired infection is an important cause of mortality and morbidity among infants in neonatal intensive care units. Surveillance cultures are performed routinely in many units to monitor infants at risk of sepsis. Mechanically ventilated babies face particular risk because artificial airways bypass the body's defenses against inhaled pathogens and offer new routes for non airborne pathogens. Intubation associated lesions of pharynx and trachea lead to bacterial coloni...

Advantages to develop it in others hospitals are numerous: access to innovative treatments, improvement of healthcare quality, hospitals' attractiveness, increased inclusion rates and reduced selection bias. The objectives of the study are to report the current situation of clinical research outside of teaching hospitals in France.

Feasibility of Cocooning Immunization Strategy With Influenza Vaccine

Influenza causes epidemics of respiratory infection in young children each winter. Young children, particularly those under 6 months of age are most vulnerable to suffering from complications secondary to influenza infection. Consequently, influenza vaccine has been recommended for children 6-59 months of age. Influenza vaccine is not approved for use in children under 6 month of age who are at highest risk. Therefore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory ...

The Treatment of Periappendicular Abscess After the Acute Phase

The PeriAPPAC trial is a prospective randomised study comparing interval laparoscopic appendectomy with follow-up MRI in patients with initially successfully treated periappendicular abscess. Periappendicular abscess is generally initially treated conservatively with antibiotic therapy and if necessary, drainage. Operative treatment in the acute abscess phase is associated with increased morbidity and thus complicated appendicitis with a periappendicular abscess is initi...

Study to Assess the Use of a Simple Lab Test to Screen for Rickets in Children

Some experts recommend that all breastfed babies receive supplemental vitamin D. The purpose of this study is to determine the rate of vitamin D use in breastfed babies, the recommendations of pediatricians regarding vitamin D, and the impact on these recommendations on parental choice of vitamin D. In addition, in preparation for a large study to see how many breastfed children who don't receive supplemental vitamin D have rickets, in this study we will determine if a simple...

Supporting Mothers of Preterm Infants

Preterm birth is the leading contributor to mortality among children younger than 5 years. One effective and inexpensive intervention is providing skin-to-skin care (STSC) whereby the mother of a preterm baby provides skin-to-skin contact to the newborn for at least a few hours, ideally every day. This intervention can make breastfeeding easier and can improve the health and development of the baby. Unfortunately, despite the large health benefits, mothers in low-resource comm...

Effect of Antenatal SSRI Exposure on the QT Interval of Neonates

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are a group of antidepressants that suppress the re-absorption of a chemical called Serotonin in the brain, and improve mood. SSRI use in the treatment of mental health problems has increased greatly since their introduction in the 1980's. When given in pregnancy they cause less fetal effects than other antidepressants. However they are still known to cause premature birth, heart defects and withdrawal symptoms in the baby. Withdr...

Effects of Infant Diets on Estrogen Activity and Development

This study, conducted at the Children's Hospital of Boston and the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, will examine the natural history of infant development in the first year of life and how different types of infant feeding may affect that development. During pregnancy, babies are exposed to the female hormone estrogen from their mothers. Estrogen affects development of breasts and milk production, as well as the development of the uterus, ovaries and possibly other hor...
