NICUs and VLBW births, the authors developed categories of NICUs based on the percent of black VLBW infants.
Differences between groups (VLBW cases, controls; metabolic syndrome present, absent) were determined using the Student i-test or Fisher exact test as appropriate.
Moreover, it has been proven that the information and the advices given to the mothers of VLBW on the benefits and on the practices of the breastfeeding, do not represent an additional risk factor for the maternal stress but they become a way to make women (who had a premature or difficult delivery) aware and coprotagonists of the care of their children, even when the clinical conditions of the newborns are critical [42, 43].
Despite the referral protocol in place, many high-risk VLBW and ELBW deliveries still do not take place at GSH.
The study showed that parents of VP and VLBW babies were confronted with more challenging situations during their children's life: their child's different start in neonatal intensive care, a much higher rate of disability (e.g.
The following variables were taken into consideration: MDI, PDI, and BRS, according to the BSID-II (as outcome measures); and days of gestational age (GA), birth weight (BW), categories of preterm infants on the basis of BW (VLBW and ELBW), categories on the basis of size versus GA (appropriate for GA, AGA, and small for G, SGA), head circumference (HC), 1-minute Apgar score (1'-AS) and 5-minute Apgar score (5'-AS), levels of severity on the basis of cranial ultrasound (CU) reports, presence or absence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), and days of mechanical ventilation (MV) (as possible treatment-modifying factors).

In this second group of patients, paracetamol showed 100% of failure, suggesting that, after ineffective ibuprofen treatment, paracetamol in VLBW is not effective in closing PDA, maybe for its late administration (mean 14 days) or for the patients features in this study (lower GA than other trials or variability in the hemodynamic significance criteria among the studies, showed in Table 3), although it became a safe treatment, without renal or hepatic side effects.
Talavera of the department of pediatrics at Ohio State University, Columbus, and her associates assessed the effects of a multipronged intervention on the rate of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) among VLBW infants admitted to the intensive care nurseries of Nationwide Children's Hospital between January 2010 and December 2013.
[A]t points in the distribution where we do not anticipate treatment differences, economically and statistically significant jumps of magnitudes similar to our VLBW treatment effects could suggest that the discontinuity we observe at 1,500 grams may be due to natural variation in treatment and mortality in our data.
Healthy children reports, "For every 10 mL/kg/day increase in breastmilk ingested: [very low birth weight] VLBW babies had increased Bayley Mental Development and Psychomotor Development scores, behavior rating scores, and a 6% decrease in rehospitalization" (Cadwell & Turner-Maffei, 2012, p.
