BACKGROUND Maternal smoking is associated with disturbed cardiorespiratory control in the infant. Despite lacking knowledge of whether the harmful effects of smoking are caused by combustion products in tobacco smoke or by nicotine, it has been argued that nicotine-replacement therapy during pregnancy is safer than smoking. OBJECTIVE The goal of this(More)
The primary aim of the Swedish national population registration system is to obtain data that (1) reflect the composition, relationship and identities of the Swedish population and (2) can be used as the basis for correct decisions and measures by government and other regulatory authorities. For this purpose, Sweden has established two population registers:(More)
The electrical parameters associated with discharges in resistive soils have been studied under inhomogeneous fields in order to achieve a better understanding of the nonlinear behavior of grounding systems subject to high surge currents. The soil resistivity and the other parameters associated with discharges are defined using experimental and calculating(More)
AIM Very low birthweight (VLBW) and prematurity have been associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure (BP). We compared BP and salivary cortisol responses to a stressful situation between adolescents with a VLBW and controls. METHODS We compared three groups aged 12-17 years: 30 born VLBW but appropriate for gestational age (AGA) at a mean of(More)
OBJECTIVE Adolescents and young adults born preterm have elevated blood pressure (BP). The objective of this study was to investigate if BP is elevated at 2.5 years of age after an extremely preterm birth (EXPT). METHODS In a regional subset of the national population-based cohort Extremely Preterm Infants in Sweden Study, BP at 2.5 years of age was(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal timing of pharmacological treatment for patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in extremely preterm infants is unknown. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether timing of pharmacological PDA treatment is associated with a risk of secondary PDA surgery or death before 3 months of age, or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in extremely preterm infants.(More)
Background:Preterm birth increases risk for adult cardiovascular disease. We hypothesized that arteries in 6-y-old children born preterm are narrower, with thicker intima-media and stiffer than in peers born at term.Methods:Children born extremely preterm (EXP, n = 176, birthweights: 348–1,161 g) and at term (CTRL, n = 174, birthweights: 2,430–4,315 g) were(More)
AIM It is common in Sweden to discharge infants early from a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and provide hospital-assisted neonatal home care (HANHC), as an alternative to hospital care, for infants with a persisting need for specialised care. This study assessed the safety of HANHC by reviewing hospital readmissions. METHODS We retrospectively(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Stillbirth and in-hospital mortality rates associated with very preterm births (VPT) vary widely across Europe. International comparisons are complicated by a lack of standardized data collection and differences in definitions, registration, and reporting. This study aims to determine what proportion of the variation in stillbirth(More)
