Fetal growth rate and adverse perinatal events. (1/1120)

OBJECTIVE: To study fetal weight gain and its association with adverse perinatal events in a serially scanned high-risk population. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 200 pregnant women considered at increased risk of uteroplacental insufficiency had a total of 1140 scans in the third trimester, with a median of six scans in each pregnancy. The average fetal growth rate was retrospectively calculated for the last 6 weeks to birth, and expressed as daily weight gain in grams per day. Adverse pregnancy outcome was defined as operative delivery for fetal distress, acidotic umbilical artery pH (< 7.15), or admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). RESULTS: Fetuses with normal outcome in this high-risk pregnancy population had an average antenatal growth rate of 24.2 g/day. Compared to pregnancies with normal outcome, the growth rate was slower in those that required operative delivery for fetal distress (20.9 g/day, p < 0.05) and those that required admission to the NICU (20.3 g/day, p < 0.05). The growth rate in pregnancies resulting in acidotic umbilical artery pH also seemed lower, but this did not reach statistical significance. CONCLUSIONS: Impaired fetal weight gain prior to birth is associated with adverse perinatal events suggestive of growth failure.  (+info)

The influence of day of life in predicting the inpatient costs for providing care to very low birth weight infants. (2/1120)

The purpose of this study was to test, refine, and extend a statistical model that adjusts neonatal intensive care costs for a very low birth weight infant's day of life and birth weight category. Subjects were 62 infants with birth weights below 1,501 g who were born and cared for in a university hospital until discharged home alive. Subjects were stratified into 250-g birth weight categories. Clinical and actual daily room and ancillary-resource costs for each day of care of each infant were tabulated. Data were analyzed by using a nonlinear regression procedure specifying two separate for modeling. The modeling was performed with data sets that both included and excluded room costs. The former set of data were used for generating a model applicable for comparing interhospital performances and the latter for comparing interphysician performances. The results confirm the existence of a strong statistical relationship between an infant's day of life and both total hospital costs and the isolated costs for ancillary-resource alone (P < 0.0001). A refined series of statistical models have been generated that are applicable to the assessment of either interhospital or interphysician costs associated with providing inpatient care to very low birth weight infants.  (+info)

A program to reduce discharge delays in a neonatal intensive care unit. (3/1120)

Our hypothesis was that a program designed to identify the causes of discharge delays would reduce the length of stay in our neonatal intensive care unit. We reviewed every admission from January, 1994, to December, 1995. A discharge delay was defined as any delay not related to illness after the infant was cleared for release. Discharge delays were divided into the following categories: primary healthcare team, organizational, discharge planning, family, monitor related, and other. Potential discharge delays were identified daily according to established criteria. Actual discharge delays were reviewed monthly at a staff meeting attended by representatives of a multidisciplinary team. We identified 116 discharge delays, which accounted for 480 patient days. Eighty-three discharge delays accounted for 302 patient days in 1994, and 33 discharge delays for 178 patient days in 1995. Discharge delays ranged from 1 to 34 days, with an average of 4.1 days added per patient. Infants with discharge delays had a case mix index of 9.32. The average case mix index for the neonatal intensive care unit was 6.25 during 1994 and 5.18 during 1995, an average of 5.71 for the review period. Forty-four percent of infants who had discharge delays had private insurance, 55% had Medicaid, and 1% had self-payment arrangements. Eighty-eight of 116 discharge delays were caused by circumstances beyond the control of the primary care team. An additional 25 of 116 discharge delays were the result of our policy requiring 48 hours free of apnea-bradycardia alarms before discharge. Discharge delays for 1994 cost $226,298 ($749/day). For 1995, discharge delays cost $41,553 ($233/day) for a total cost of $262,431. Total savings in 1995 versus 1994 was $184,745 ($516/day). Despite the low birth weight and relatively severe illnesses of the infants, we believe that a focused team approach and monitoring for potential discharge delays can result in considerable reduction in hospital stay and cost.  (+info)

Perinatal risk and severity of illness in newborns at 6 neonatal intensive care units. (4/1120)

OBJECTIVES: This multisite study sought to identify (1) any differences in admission risk (defined by gestational age and illness severity) among neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) and (2) obstetric antecedents of newborn illness severity. METHODS: Data on 1476 babies born at a gestational age of less than 32 weeks in 6 perinatal centers were abstracted prospectively. Newborn illness severity was measured with the Score for Neonatal Acute Physiology. Regression models were constructed to predict scores as a function of perinatal risk factors. RESULTS: The sites differed by several obstetric case-mix characteristics. Of these, only gestational age, small for gestational age. White race, and severe congenital anomalies were associated with higher scores. Antenatal corticosteroids, low Apgar scores, and neonatal hypothermia also affected illness severity. At 2 sites, higher mean severity could not be explained by case mix. CONCLUSIONS: Obstetric events and perinatal practices affect newborn illness severity. These risk factors differ among perinatal centers and are associated with elevated illness severity at some sites. Outcomes of NICU care may be affected by antecedent events and perinatal practices.  (+info)

UK neonatal intensive care services in 1996. On behalf of the UK Neonatal Staffing Study Collaborative Group. (5/1120)

A census of activity and staff levels in 1996 was conducted in UK neonatal units and achieved a 100% response from 246 units. Among the 186 neonatal intensive care units, the median (interquartile range) number of total cots was 18(14-22); level 1 intensive care cots 4(2-6); total admissions 318(262-405); very low birthweight admissions 40(28-68); and the number ventilated or given CPAP by endotracheal tube 52(32-83). Forty six (25%) intensive care units lacked the recommended minimum of one consultant with prime responsibility for neonatal medicine. As a conservative estimate 79% of intensive care units had a lower nursing provision than that recommended in previously published guidelines. There was substantial variation in activity and staffing levels among units.  (+info)

Survival and place of delivery following preterm birth: 1994-96. (6/1120)

AIM: To compare the survival of premature infants, adjusted for disease severity, in different types of neonatal intensive care setting. METHODS: A prospective observational study in the Trent Health Region was carried out of all infants born to resident mothers at or before 32 weeks of gestation between 1 January 1994 to 31 December 1996 inclusive. The 16 neonatal units in Trent were subdivided into five relatively large units which regularly took outside referrals and 11 smaller units which provided intensive care for a variable proportion (sometimes nearly 100%) of their local population. Data regarding obstetric management, neonatal care, and outcome were collected by independent neonatal nurses who visited the units on a regular basis. Survival rates were compared with an expected rate calculated using the Clinical Risk Index for Babies (CRIB). For either setting to be abnormally good or bad actual deaths had to exceed the 95% confidence interval of the CRIB estimate. RESULTS: Actual survival rates for infants < or = 32 weeks gestation and for the group of babies < or = 28 weeks gestation fell within the 95% confidence interval of the rate predicted by CRIB for both the larger referral units and the smaller district units. Similarly, compared with the CRIB prediction, infants transferred in utero or postnatally were not adversely affected in terms of the number who died. CONCLUSION: Previous results from this geographical population, showing that survival of babies < or = 28 weeks gestation was better when their care was provided by referral units, are no longer sustained. Significant changes to the neonatal services over time make the current results plausible. However, the new structure poses potential threats to the teaching, training, and research base of the neonatal service as a whole.  (+info)

Outbreak of extended spectrum beta lactamase producing Klebsiella pneumoniae in a neonatal unit. (7/1120)

An outbreak of extended spectrum beta lactamase producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBLKp) in a neonatal unit was controlled using simple measures. Normally, the control of such infections can be time consuming and expensive. Seven cases of septicaemia resulted in two deaths. ESBLKp isolates were subtyped by pulsed field gel electrophoresis, and four of the five isolates typed were identical. Control of the outbreak was achieved by altered empiric antibiotic treatment for late onset sepsis and prevention of cross infection by strict attention to hand washing. Widespread colonisation of babies in the unit was presumed, so initial surveillance cultures were not performed. No further episodes of sepsis occurred.  (+info)

Parental visiting, communication, and participation in ethical decisions: a comparison of neonatal unit policies in Europe. (8/1120)

AIM: To compare neonatal intensive care unit policies towards parents' visiting, information, and participation in ethical decisions across eight European countries. METHODS: One hundred and twenty three units, selected by random or exhaustive sampling, were recruited, with an overall response rate of 87%. RESULTS: Proportions of units allowing unrestricted parental visiting ranged from 11% in Spain to 100% in Great Britain, Luxembourg and Sweden, and those explicitly involving parents in decisions from 19% in Italy to 89% in Great Britain. Policies concerning information also varied. CONCLUSIONS: These variations cannot be explained by differences in unit characteristics, such as level, size, and availability of resources. As the importance of parental participation in the care of their babies is increasingly being recognised, these findings have implications for neonatal intensive care organisation and policy.  (+info)

The neonatology teams in our newborn intensive care units (NICU) are dedicated to the needs of our tiniest patients-premature and severely ill infants-and their families.

Reviews the book, Infants in Crisis: How Parents Cope with Newborn Intensive Care and its Aftermath by Glenn Affleck, Howard Tennen, and Jonelle Rowe (see record 1991-97005-000). This volume investigates the psychological adaptations made by families of newborn infants who are hospitalized in intensive care units. The authors summarize research addressing a wide spectrum of questions raised by the birth, care, and homecoming of medically fragile infants. Topics include coping strategies in the hospital, expectancies of control over childrens futures, the search for causes, self-blame and blame on others, the emotional response of mothers, and the impact on the marital relationship. The authors conclude with a discussion of their findings and implications for practitioners in the field. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved) ...

Timely transport of a critically ill newborn from a community hospital to a regional neonatal intensive care unit may mean the difference between life and death or a life free of physical or mental impairment. Now experts at UC Irvine Medical Center, home to Orange Countys only high-risk regional perinatal-neonatal center, are hitting the road with a cooling technology that may prevent or minimize brain damage to infants who are oxygen-deprived at birth. We believe applying whole body cooling to newborns en route to UC Irvine Medical Center will give infants with the most critical brain injuries a better chance to recover, said Dr. Cherry Uy, director of the UC Irvine Health Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Also called therapeutic hypothermia, whole body cooling uses a specially-designed blanket to lower an infants body temperature to 92.3 to 94.1 degrees Fahrenheit. Studies show that such cooling may prevent brain damage in a newborn that experiences hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, ...

PY - 2012/10. Y1 - 2012/10. N2 - Severe infections represent the main cause of neonatal mortality accounting for more than one million neonatal deaths worldwide every year. Antibiotics are the most commonly prescribed medications in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) and in industrialized countries about 1% of neonates are exposed to antibiotic therapy. Signs and symptoms of sepsis are nonspecific, and empiric antimicrobial therapy is promptly initiated after obtaining appropriate cultures in order to prevent deleterious consequences. However, many preterm infants who do not have infection receive antimicrobial agents during hospital stay and antibiotic treatment in the setting of negative cultures can have serious adverse effects like: promotion of bacterial antibiotic resistance, alteration of gut ...

USA Health has the areas only Level III neonatal intensive care unit, which offers the most advanced care for premature and critically ill newborns.
Maternal race/ethnicity, age, and socioeconomic status (SES) are important factors determining birth outcome. Previous studies have demonstrated that, teenagers, and mothers with advanced maternal age (AMA), and Black/Non-Hispanic race/ethnicity can independently increase the risk for a poor pregnancy outcome. Similarly, public insurance has been associated with suboptimal health outcomes. The interaction and impact on the risk of a pregnancy resulting in a NICU admission has not been studied. Our aim was, to analyze the simultaneous interactions of teen/advanced maternal age (AMA), race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status on the odds of NICU admission. The Consortium of Safe Labor Database (subset of n = 167,160 live births) was used to determine NICU admission and maternal factors: age, race/ethnicity, insurance, previous c-section, and gestational age. AMA mothers were more likely than teenaged mothers to have a pregnancy result in a NICU admission. Black/Non-Hispanic mothers with private insurance

Newborn babies who need intensive medical care and treatment are usually admitted to a department or area in the hospital called neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The NICU offers advanced technology as well as specialised healthcare to provide appropriate care for preterm and ill newborn babies. The baby stays for days, weeks or possibly longer, depending on the gestational age (number of weeks that a baby has been in the womb of the mother) and the health condition of the baby.. Being transferred to a NICU is often a shock to parents. Mothers and fathers are usually faced with the situation of suddenly becoming parents much earlier than expected. They may be overwhelmed by finding their child in a critical health condition and by the unfamiliar environment of a NICU. Parents need time, appropriate information, social and psychological support, and encouragement to cope with this difficult situation and to find their role as parents. ...

NBASs Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Review is an effective tool for post-service NICU claims which frequently represent significant financial exposure. Through the review process, NBASs skilled registered nurses and panel of board certified physicians use multiple resources to determine if the care provided was medically necessary. NBAS also evaluates billed procedures, technology, and whether pharmacology may be considered experimental and/or investigational in nature and if duplicate charges, unbundled services and coding errors are present. NBAS validates that billed services and supplies were appropriate and essential for treatment based on nationally published and recognized criteria developed by the FDA, AMA, MCG (formerly Milliman), and other similar specialty organizations.. NICU CLAIM FACTS Over the past 25 years, preterm births have increased more than 35%. Today, about one preterm infant is born every minute in the United States. The per-case cost of NICU care is among the ...
Despite intensive surveillance and prophylactic measures, nosocomial infections (NIs) in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) remain a major world health problem. NIs still occur at an incidence of around 30% [1,2] and, in developing countries, are estimated to cause 40% of all neonatal deaths [3]. At birth, newborns are devoiced of efficient structural barriers, of a protective endogenous microbial flora and of a mature immune system. Additionally, neonates admitted to NICUs, especially if premature or with low birth weight, are under a profound physiologic instability and are frequently exposed to therapeutic interventions associated with infectious complications, such as invasive procedures and broad-spectrum antibiotics [4,5]. Together, these unique aspects render this population exceedingly susceptible to NIs, as well as vulnerable to more severe illness. The outcome of neonates with NICU NIs is strongly related to their appropriate diagnosis and management. Diagnosing neonatal NI, ...
