Late preterm (LP) infants are defined as those born at 34-0/7 to 36-6/7 weeks' gestational age. LP infants were previously referred to as near term infants. The change in terminology resulted from the understanding that these infants are not fully mature and that the last 6 weeks of gestation represent a critical period of growth and development of the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Iatrogenesis often results from performance deficiencies among medical team members. Team-targeted rudeness may underlie such performance deficiencies, with individuals exposed to rude behavior being less helpful and cooperative. Our objective was to explore the impact of rudeness on the performance of medical teams. METHODS(More)
Acute bronchiolitis (AB) is caused primarily by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Recent laboratory tools have implicated a variety of other pathogens; however, their clinical relevance has not been clearly defined. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the etiological agents of AB affect its course. A multicenter prospective study was(More)
To study the relationship of the parachute responses to the age of independent walking, three groups of infants were prospectively examined: a normal sitting, normal walking group; a late sitting, normal walking group; and a late sitting, late walking group. All other spheres of the neurodevelopmental examination were normal. It was found that when the(More)
Assumption of the vertical position and independent walking are potentially hazardous motor milestones in the developing infant. It has been presumed that the parachute reactions evolved to protect infants from injury during this developmental stage. To determine the relationship between the appearance of the upper and lower parachute reactions and the(More)
