Evaluation of the newborn's blood gas status -- Brouillette and Waxman 43 (1): 215 -- C... - 0 views

  •  
    Clinical Chemistry - 1997 NACB Symposium - Evaluation of the newborn's blood gas status - This paper discusses considerations for interpretation of blood gases in the newborn period. Blood gas measurements and noninvasive estimations provide important information about oxygenation. Its determined that Blood gas measurements and complementary, noninvasive monitoring techniques provide the clinician with information essential to patient assessment, therapeutic decision making, and prognostication. Blood gas measurements are as important for ill newborn infants as for other critically ill patients, but unique challenges are provided by rapidly changing physiology, difficult access to arterial and mixed venous sampling sites, and small blood volumes.

Intrapartum computerized fetal heart rate paramete... [Obstet Gynecol. 2003] - PubMed r... - 0 views

  •  
    University of Weatern Ontario, Canada study to estimate to what extent computerized fetal heart rate (FHR) parameters are affected by labor and to estimate the relationship between FHR parameters and the degree of fetal metabolic acidosis in laboring patients at term.
    Study concluded that in term pregnant women with reassuring FHR tracing, labor causes an increase in both short- and long-term FHR variation, which was abolished in the presence of nonreassuring FHR tracing. Computer-derived FHR parameters studied during the last hour of labor were not correlated with the degree of metabolic acidosis as measured in the umbilical artery at birth.

  •  
    Article abstract of French study assessing neonatal outcomes after instrumental vaginal delivery. Many of the most severe neonatal complications are observed when perinatal asphyxia has occurred. Extractor types and quality of use under defined criteria are closely associated with neonatal adverse outcomes in operative vaginal delivery. Forceps deliveries are as safe as vacuum deliveries to the neonate. In conclusion, operative vaginal delivery performed for maternal or fetal reasons are associated with several neonatal adverse events, usually non specific and with a short term good prognosis.

Effect of Protein Composition on Gastric Emptying - 0 views

  •  
    European study to find out whether 4 different protein sources affect the rate of gastric emptying and
    electrofysiology in this group of children.The protein composition of nutrition may affect the rate of gastric emptying and gastric fysiology. This is especially important in children with neurologic impariment, who commonly rely on tube feedings, have feeding problems, nausea, vomiting, gastroesophageal reflux and delayed gastric emptying.

NHLBI Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) Network - 0 views

  •  
    NHLBI ARDS Clinical Network web site. This site was established to provide information to the public on ARDS and the ARDS Network. In order to hasten the development of effective therapy for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Heath, initiated a clinical network to carry out multi center clinical trials of ARDS treatments. The goal of the Network is to efficiently test promising agents, devices, or management strategies to improve the care of patients with ARDS.

  •  
    The Center for Cerebral Palsy Research was founded in 1996 and is committed to understanding the mechanisms underlying the symptoms of cerebral palsy and developing evidence-based treatment approaches targeting these symptoms. The Center is a non-profit organization located at Teachers College, Columbia University, a leading institution of Education, Health and Psychology. Our Center is committed to improving the lives of children with cerebral palsy through research. These include both speech and motor disorders associated with CP.

Progesterone for managemnet of preterm premature rupture of the membranes - 0 views

  •  
    Study to determine if the drug 17-hydroxyprogesterone caproate can help reduce the risk of preterm delivery in women with certain risk factors for preterm birth. We hope to learn whether this same medication can be used to prolong pregnancy in a group of patients in whom this medication has not been previously studied. Specifically, we hope to learn whether progesterone supplementation will delay delivery in women with pre-term, premature rupture of membranes (PPROM).

Appropriate Oxygen Levels for Extremely Preterm Infants: a Prospective Meta-analysis - ... - 0 views

  •  
    "For over 60 years the most appropriate oxygen level for preterm babies remains unknown. To answer this, we will combine data from over 5300 babies to be sure the expected benefits of lower oxygen for babies' eyes and lungs does not come at the expense of increasing death or major disability in these children. Planning to do this before the results of any of the trials are known is called a prospective meta-analysis. This is the first time this technique has been used in neonatal medicine.
