Hello Friends 👋
This week we have a jam-packed journal club. We reviewed a few papers looking at phyisiologic changes in neonates. How does pCO2 and pO2 affect cerebral blood perfusion? How does PRBC transfusion impact PVR, cardiac function and splanchnic saturation? Daphna reviews a bunch of interesting papers looking at salivary cortisol levels in neonates as measure of nicu induced stress, what are the long term outcomes of babies born during the pandemic. She also reviews a paper from Brown University senior authored by Dr. Betty Vohr on how "high risk" neighborhood can affect long term outcomes of neonates. We also review a paper by our friend Dr. Camilia Martin on breast milk xenobiotics and their effects on the devlopment of BPD and ROP in a cohort of preterm neonates. And we review the newest AAP policy statement on Vitamin K and a clinical report on alternative birth practices that is quite informative. Enjoy!
