OBJECTIVE To study the effects of implementing a method for surfactant administration by transient intubation, INSURE (i.e. INtubation SURfactant Extubation) during nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) for moderately preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). STUDY DESIGN A descriptive, retrospective, bi-center study in(More)
The influence of three different intrauterine devices on the composition of cervical mucus was studied. The amount of mucin, albumin and immunoglobulin G was estimated. After the insertion of an inert IUD, a decrease in mucin was observed. During copper-IUD use the content of mucin, albumin and IgG was increased in cervical mucus, while weight was not(More)
UNLABELLED Clinically significant bacteraemia in adults is characterized by low numbers of circulating bacteria. Assuming a Poisson or a binomial distribution we have calculated the probability of detecting bacteria as a function of the concentration in blood, estimated the concentration of bacteria in blood from a given test result, and calculated the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC) infusion during the first week of life reduces the risk of death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in infants with extremely low birth weight. Study design In a Nordic multicenter, double-blind trial, infants (n=391) weighing 500 to 999 g and on ventilator or nasal continuous positive airway pressure(More)
In a controlled study comprising 176 patients, quinidine in the form of Kinidin Durules was found to reduced significantly the recurrence of the atrial fibrillation during a 1-year follow-up period after successful electric shock conversion. After one year, 51 per cent (52/101) of the patients in the quinidine group, and 28 per cent (21/75) in the control(More)
Sixty-five children born to women who all used amphetamine during pregnancy were followed prospectively up to the age of 8 years. There was a statistically significant correlation between the extent (among and duration) of amphetamine exposure during fetal life and psychometric tests, aggressive behavior, adjustment and general assessment, indicating a(More)
UNLABELLED Chronic lung disease of prematurity (CLD) is associated with an inflammatory response in the preterm lung and increased levels of proinflammatory cytokines in tracheobronchial aspirate fluid (TAF). We investigated TAF levels of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1), interleukin-10 (IL-10), interleukin-4 (IL-4) and interleukin-12 (IL-12)(More)
Sixty-five children born to women who all abused amphetamine during pregnancy have been followed prospectively since their birth in 1976-77. At the age of 14-15 years, information about growth and school achievement was collected from school records. For comparison of school achievements the means of schoolmates were used, and for growth a group of(More)
