  • utero
  • Proponents of cobedding multiples believe that cobedding should be a component of developmentally supportive care because it may ease transition from intrauterine to extrauterine life by allowing for the continuation of the interactive development and coregulation that may have occurred between siblings while in utero. (aappublications.org)
  • However, males are also more susceptible than females to die in utero, and since the death rate in utero is higher for twins, it leads to female twins being more common than male twins. (wikipedia.org)
  • fetal
  • Regular visits are scheduled to track blood pressure and level of protein in urine, to order and analyze blood tests that detect signs of preeclampsia, and to monitor fetal development more closely. (wikipedia.org)
  • amniotic
  • Having a higher blood volume can make the recipient twin larger and they may have more amniotic fluid surrounding them than normal (known as polyhydramnios) which can put a strain on the baby s heart. (docplayer.net)
  • Cord entanglement for the twins that share amniotic sac. (uhhospitals.org)
  • gestational
  • Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were estimated using unconditional logistic regression adjusting for sex, gestational age, birth weight, birth order, maternal age, maternal race, state of birth, and birth year. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Our analysis suggests that mechanisms other than birth weight and gestational age may influence the lower risk of Wilms' tumor and neuroblastoma in multiple births. (aacrjournals.org)
  • However, some women develop high blood pressure while they are pregnant (often called gestational hypertension). (wikipedia.org)
  • These women also face a higher risk for poor birth outcomes such as preterm delivery, having an infant small for his/her gestational age, and infant death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dizygotic
  • Dizygotic twins, like any other siblings, have an extremely small chance of having the same chromosome profile. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like any other siblings, dizygotic twins may look similar, particularly given that they are the same age. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, dizygotic twins may also look very different from each other. (wikipedia.org)
  • Studies show that there is a genetic proclivity for dizygotic twinning. (wikipedia.org)
  • hospitals
  • 1 Cobedding multiples in hospitals was not commonly practiced in the United States until anecdotal reports of cobedding began to appear in American newspapers in the mid-1990s. (aappublications.org)
  • Because of this, health care providers will increasingly be faced with the issue of whether to cobed multiples in their hospitals. (aappublications.org)
  • The purpose of this commentary is to review the published literature on the practice of cobedding multiples in US hospitals and to inform health care providers by outlining what is known about the risks and benefits of this practice on the basis of existing evidence. (aappublications.org)
  • NICU
  • Although many twins spend little to no time in the NICU, it will help to familiarize yourself with the lingo and workings of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). (hubpages.com)
  • Medications
  • Before the advent of effective antihypertension medications, bed rest was a standard treatment for markedly high blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • morbidity
  • The objective of this study was to examine if LPT require longer postnatal hospitalisation and if LPT have a higher neonatal morbidity and mortality compared with LPS and term twins (TT). (smw.ch)
  • birth
  • Although several studies have found no change or a decreased risk of childhood cancer in twins, few have controlled for potential confounders such as birth weight. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Higher-order multiple birth (triplets or higher) was not associated with childhood cancer. (aacrjournals.org)
  • In order to more precisely assess the role of birth characteristics in childhood cancer etiology, we pooled data from five states - California, Minnesota, New York (excluding New York City), Texas, and Washington - which had previously compiled case-control datasets by linking their cancer and birth registries ( 23 , 26 - 29 ). (aacrjournals.org)
  • The human twin birth rate in the United States, rose 76% from 1980 through 2009, from 18.9 to 33.3 per 1,000 births. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dolla, American rapper, his twin sibling died during birth. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Such births are often named according to the number of offspring, as in twins and triplets. (wikipedia.org)
  • Popular throughout the United States and the United Kingdom, they are often areas of high-density, low-impact residences of single-family detached homes, and often allow for separate ownership of each housing unit, for example through subdivision. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Princess was often built to order. (wikipedia.org)
  • Often accompanying them in the early episodes is the Galactic Union auditor Armbrust (German: Crossbow) who appears to have multiple hidden agendas. (wikipedia.org)
  • among
  • Higher consumption of SSBs was associated with an elevated risk of type 2 diabetes ( 6 - 8 ) and insulin resistance ( 9 ) among middle- or older-aged adults in several recent epidemiological studies. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Prevention
  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report more than 132,000 sets of twins out of 3.9 million births of all kinds each year, about 3.4%, or 1 in 30. (wikipedia.org)
  • Triplets are far less common than twins, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accounting for only about 4300 sets in 3.9 million births, just a little more than 0.1%, or 1 in 1000. (wikipedia.org)
