BACKGROUND: Intraventricular hemorrhage, necrotizing enterocolitis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia remain significant causes of morbidity and mortality in preterm newborns. OBJECTIVES: Our goal was to assess the familial and genetic susceptibility to
Annual odds ratios, standardised for known confounding variables, were used to examine trends in major neonatal morbidities among 3220 preterm infants of less than 35 weeks gestation admitted to a regional referral centre between 1980 and 1991. Desp
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether there is an association between severe intraventricular hemorrhage and early extubation in preterm infants born before 29 weeks of gestational age and intubated at birth. METHODS: This study included 1587 preterm infants from a nationwide French population cohort (EPIPAGE-2). Secondary data on intubated preterm infants were analyzed. After gestational age and propensity score matching (1:1) we built two comparable groups: an early extubation group and a delayed extubation group. Each neonate in one group was paired with a neonate in the other group having the same propensity score and gestational age. Early extubation was defined as extubation within 48 hours of life. Severe intraventricular hemorrhages were defined as grade III or IV hemorrhages according to the Papile classification. RESULTS: After matching, there were 398 neonates in each group. Using a generalized estimating equation model, we found that intraventricular hemorrhage was not associated with early
Of 214 preterm infants studied at Wilhelmina Childrens Hospital, Utrecht, the Netherlands, 94 (44%) had a grade 111 intraventricular hemorrhage (1VH), and 120 (56%) had a grade IV hemorrhage. Post-hemorrhagic ventricular dilatation (PHVD) developed significantly more often in survivors with grade III hemorrhage (78%) than in infants with grade IV hemorrhage (53%)(p=0.002). Cerebral palsy developed in 7.4% of the surviving grade III group, compared with 48.7% with a grade IV hemorrhage (p,0.001). The mean developmental quotient (DQ) was 99 in grade III group and 95 in the grade IV group at 24 months corrected age. The DQ was significantly lower in infants with cerebral palsy, irrespective of severity of IVH. [1]. COMMENT. Outcome was better than expected in preterm infants with severe IVH.. ...
Results 3372 very preterm infants were treated with HF. HF use in this population increased significantly from 15% in 2009 to 35% in 2012. In 2012, 53% (542/1029) of extremely preterm infants born ,28 weeks gestation received HF. 98% (3308/3372) of infants had received endotracheal ventilation or CPAP prior to receiving HF. The maximum HF gas flow was ≤8 L/min in almost all infants. ...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the association between breastfeeding support and breastfeeding among late preterm (gestation 34-36 weeks) and term (gestation ≥37 weeks) infants. METHODS: Secondary analysis of the UK 2010 Infant Feeding Survey. Logistic regression was used to determine the association of breastfeeding support with breastfeeding at 10 days and 6 weeks in late preterm and term infants. RESULTS: The study included 14,525 term and 579 late preterm infants. A total of 11,729 infants initiated breastfeeding (11,292 (81.1%) term, 437 (79.4%) late preterm infants, p=0.425). Of these, 9230 (84.3%) term and 365 (85.6%) late preterm infants were breastfeeding at 10 days (p=0.586); of these 7547 (82.0%) term and 281 (75.4%) late preterm infants were still breastfeeding at 6 weeks (p=0.012). Mothers who reported receiving contact details for breastfeeding support groups had a higher likelihood of breastfeeding late preterm (adjusted ORs, aOR 3.14, 95% CI 1.40 to 7.04) and term infants (aOR 2.24, 95% CI 1.86
Other terms often used for prematurity are preterm and preemie. Many premature babies also weigh less than 2,500 grams (5.5 pounds) and may be referred to as low birthweight (LBW).. Premature infants born between 34 and 37 weeks of pregnancy are often called late preterm or near-term infants. Late preterm infants are often much larger than very premature infants but may only be slightly smaller than full-term infants.. Late preterm babies usually appear healthy at birth but may have more difficulties adapting than full-term babies. Because of their smaller size, they may have trouble maintaining their body temperature. They often have difficulty with breastfeeding and bottle feeding, and may need to eat more frequently. They usually require more sleep and may even sleep through a feeding, which means they miss much-needed calories.. Late preterm infants may also have breathing difficulties, although these are often identified before the infants go home from the hospital. These infants are also ...
Results 290 VLBWs were admitted during the study period. 105 coagulation screens were performed on 54 babies ⩽1500 g (19 unsuitable for analysis; 86 analysed). Profiles were available for 40 infants; prothrombin time (PT), international normalised ratio (INR), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), and fibrinogen. Gestational ages were significantly lower in those with Grade 3-4 IVH (27±2.3 versus 25.6±2.1; p,0.05). Fibrinogen levels day 1/2 were not significant between the groups, but a difference was seen on day 3 (see table). No other comparisons were significant. ...
The aim of this project was to standardise the data collection for very preterm infants, across 10 regions in Europe, for the total cohort of 22 + 0 to 31 + 6-week infants. One major issue was the heterogeneity of outcomes of pregnancy for very preterm births that should be considered separately in order to develop a logical system of reporting to facilitate both intra-national and international comparisons.9 For example, in the MOSAIC regions policies and practices for congenital anomalies screening and termination of pregnancies varied and some MOSAIC regions had a higher proportion of terminations of pregnancy for congenital anomalies in the very preterm births cohort: 17.6% in France and 14.7% in Italy. These different practices and their impact on the rates of termination of pregnancy have been explored elsewhere.10 We suggest that terminations of pregnancy for major congenital anomalies be reported separately and excluded from comparisons of pregnancy outcomes between countries to allow ...
With advances in medicine and medical technology, premature infants born as early as 24 weeks of gestation and with birth weight less than 1000 grams are surviving today. Preterms are born with immature biological systems. Given their biological vulnerabilities, preterm infants are at risk for a variety of health and developmental problems.. As a group, preterms show developmental delays in physical growth, motor skills, attention, social communicative skills, intelligence, language, academic performance, and later behavior problems. Furthermore, research indicates that preterms are difficult social partners for their parents.. Despite biological insults and relational difficulties, research also shows that the development of premature infants appears to be facilitated by sensitive and responsive parenting. Little attention, however, has been paid to understand the social risks faced by preterm infants.. The proposed research, therefore, is designed to:. ...

Many premature infants are resilient and surprise everyone by overcoming great odds. Expect that your infant can progress for several days but may then have a medical setback.. Premature infants are more likely than others to get an infection. And organs that have not had time to mature can cause a number of problems.. The more premature a newborn is, the greater is the babys risk of having medical problems.. Infants born at 23 to 26 weeks gestation are extremely underdeveloped and have a much higher risk of death or disability. Parents of these infants are likely to be faced with difficult medical decisions. Infants who have reached their 32nd week of development before birth are less at risk than those who are born earlier.. Babies born at 34 to almost 37 weeks gestation are called late preterm infants. Although they are not as likely to have as many problems as infants who are born earlier, they are at risk for breathing problems, high blood pressure in the lungs, and other short-term and ...

The aim of multidisciplinary teams that care for preterm infants in neonatal intensive care units is to reduce the risk of CLD without compromising the short and long term condition of these infants. It is therefore important for clinicians caring for preterm infants to use evidence based treatment regimens that are effective and are evaluated on a regular basis.. Corticosteroids, which are used to reduce persistent inflammation within the lungs, have both short term and long term effects. In 2 separate systematic reviews, Halliday and Ehrenkranz evaluated the evidence available on the use of PCs to reduce CLD and mortality, as well as the implications of short and long term side effects associated with early and moderately early intravenous PCs. Inhaled corticosteroids were not considered in either of these reviews as they were the subject of a separate review.1 19 randomised controlled trials were included in the analysis of early PCs (given within 96 h of birth), whereas only 7 trials were ...

A premature baby can be referred to as a preterm baby, which is to mean that the baby was conceived too early. Too early is time before thirty-seven weeks of being pregnant have passed. Because of being born before the proper time, the baby may get problems with their health and is required to stay in the hospital to be monitored by the medical practitioners tasked with the work. For instance pediatricians. There is also the risk of getting long-term problems that relate to the childs health which can affect them during their lifetime. Such health issues include:. ...
