Our previous analyses of radio Doppler and ranging data from distant spacecraft in the solar system indicated that an apparent anomalous acceleration is acting on Pioneer 10 and 11, with a magnitude aP ∼ 8 × 10 −8 cm/s 2 , directed towards the Sun [7, 8]. Much effort has been expended looking for possible systematic origins of the residuals, but none has(More)
Recently we reported that radio Doppler data generated by NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) from the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft indicate an apparent anomalous, constant, spacecraft acceleration with a magnitude ∼ 8.5 × 10 −8 cm s −2 , directed towards the Sun [1]. Analysis of similar Doppler and ranging data from the Galileo and Ulysses spacecraft yielded(More)
Illicit drug use with opiates in pregnancy is a major global health issue with neonatal withdrawal being a common complication. Morphine is the main pharmacological agent administered for the treatment of neonatal withdrawal. In the past, morphine has been considered by and large inert in terms of its long-term effects on the central nervous system.(More)
Breast milk has been reported to ameliorate the severity and outcome of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). The mechanism of this beneficial effect of breast milk on NAS remains unclear, as the negligible amount of methadone transmitted via breast milk is unlikely to have an impact on NAS. The aim of this study was to compare the impact of different feeding(More)
Recent changes in medical education have highlighted the importance of experiential learning. Simulation is one model that has gained significant attention in the last decade and has been widely adopted as a training and assessment tool in medical education. Pediatric simulation has been utilized to teach various skills including resuscitation and trauma(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of the interaction between gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and maternal body mass index (BMI) on the individual neonatal growth parameters. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING A tertiary maternity service in Sydney, Australia, between 2005 and 2009. POPULATION A cohort of 8859 women. METHODS Generalized(More)
OBJECTIVES Nationally accredited simulation courses such as advance pediatric life support and pediatric advance life support are recommended for health care professionals (HCPs) at two yearly intervals as a minimum requirement, despite literature evidence suggesting rapid decline in knowledge shortly after course completion. The objective of this study was(More)
Methadone maintenance therapy is the standard of care in many countries for opioid-dependent women who become pregnant. Despite recent evidence showing significant neurodevelopmental changes in children and adults exposed to both licit and illicit substances in utero, data on the effects of opioids in particular remains scarce. The purpose of this study was(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of hypertensive disease of pregnancy (HDP) on the development of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in preterm neonates. DESIGN A retrospective cohort study. SETTING All neonatal intensive care units in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. PATIENTS A total of 18,845 preterm neonates aged between 24 and(More)
