Effects of prophylactic indomethacin on intraventricular hemorrhage and adverse outcomes in neonatal intensive care unit - PubMed
PI was not associated with any benefit in prevention of IVH, but is associated with adverse effects including acute rise in creatinine.
Incidence, predictors of success and outcome of LISA in very preterm infants - PubMed
LISA success can be predicted by variables available before the intervention. Failure of LISA is relatively frequent event in very preterm infants and is associated with adverse outcomes. Prevention of hypothermia during early stabilization and appropriate dosing of surfactant may increase LISA succ…



COVID-19 Vaccines in Infants, Children, and Adolescents - PubMed
Vaccines are safe and effective in protecting individuals and populations against infectious diseases. New vaccines are evaluated by a long-standing, rigorous, and transparent process by the US Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). All available safet…
Diagnostic accuracy of point-of-care ultrasound compared to standard-of-care methods for endotracheal tube placement in neonates - PubMed
POCUS is a rapid and reliable method of identifying ETT placement in neonates. Early and correct identification of airway management is critical to save lives and prevent mortality and morbidity.
Five-minute Apgar score and outcomes in neonates of 24-28 weeks’ gestation - PubMed
In neonates of 24-28 weeks’ gestation admitted to neonatal units, higher 5 min Apgar score was associated with lower mortality in a graded manner, while the association with SNI remained relatively constant at all scores. Among survivors, low Apgar scores did not predict SNI.
Impact of Management Strategy on Feeding and Somatic Growth in Neonates with Symptomatic Tetralogy of Fallot: Results from the Congenital Cardiac Research Collaborative - PubMed
In neonates with sTOF, growth trajectory over the first 6 months of life was substandard, irrespective of treatment strategy. Those patients with adequate growth were more likely to be discharged from the index procedure on oral feeds.
Online clinical tool to estimate risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in extremely preterm infants
Objective Develop an online estimator that accurately predicts bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) severity or death using readily-available demographic and clinical data. Design Retrospective analysis of data entered into a prospective registry. Setting Infants cared for at centres of the United Sta…
