The effects of skin-to-skin contact during acute pain in preterm newborns
While no attempt is made here to quantify the morbidity or mortality associated with endotracheal intubation attempts in extremely preterm newborns
, repeated traumatic attempts, prolonged hypoxia, and failure to successfully intubate sometimes occur.
The beliefs and training of clinicians may influence the outcome of extremely preterm newborns
It comprised 40 preterm newborns
with gestational age of less than 37 weeks and birth weight less than 2500 grams, who were medically stable and were only breast-fed.
Activin A concentrations are highest in preterm newborns
after perinatal hypoxia (10), in infants experiencing interventricular hemorrhage (11), and in perinatal asphyxia (12).
Influence of sensory-motor-oral stimulation on preterm newborns
A new recommendation is that every preterm newborn
who was born earlier than 28 weeks' gestation should be kept 1) wet and 2) wrapped up to its neck in a polythene garment (known as a "life-support pouch") to decrease the risk of hypothermia.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this investigation is to measure and compare the cord blood lipid profile Total Cholesterol (TC), Triglycerides (TGL), HDL-Cholesterol (HDL) and LDL-cholesterol(LDL) in term and preterm newborn
Medical costs for a preterm newborn
exceed those of a term infant by a multiple of more than 10, and the average hospitalization exceeds that of a term infant by a multiple of more than six.
patient data recorded at admission to the newborn intensive care unit.
94% preterm newborns
, while culture was positive in only 12.
WHO estimates this technique could save an estimated 450,000 preterm newborns
require care in NICUs with specialized equipment, well trained staff and higher financial support.
Despite the fact that antenatal steroid administration may be effective in reducing the risks related to respiratory disorders of the late preterm newborns
, there are studies which show increased maternal and fetal infection rates and neonatal sepsis with worsened fetal heart rate pattern and biophysical activity.
sup] Moreover, preterm newborns
may have lower IQ scores than term newborns.
