Repeated administration of drugs that increase tryptaminergic neurotransmission antagonized the increase in latency to onset and the duration of postdecapitation convulsions (PDCs) induced by an acute 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT) injection; Zimelidine (2 X 5 mg kg-1), fluoxetine (2 X 5 mg kg-1), amiflamine (2 X 2.5 mg kg-1) and(More)
BACKGROUND Skin-to-skin contact reduces pain response in preterm infants subjected to minor painful procedures, such as heel lance. Diaper change is a procedure performed several times daily in hospitalized preterm infants. Routine care giving tasks such as diaper change may be stressful for the infant. AIMS The purpose of this study was to investigate(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the prevalence of breast milk feeding (BMF) of infants with congenital heart defects (CHD) during first 6 months of life, as compared with general population. DESIGN The study is based on a subsample of the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study conducted by Norwegian Institute of Public Health. A total of 60,600 mothers completed a(More)
The effect of acute administration of rats with the 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) agonist drug 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine on the convulsions released by decapitation was examined. The postsynaptic agonist, 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine, prolonged the latency and duration from the 0.5 mg/kg dose upwards. Methergoline, 2.0 mg/kg intraperitoneally(More)
AIM Little is known about the amount of physical parent-infant closeness in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), and this study explored that issue in six European countries. METHODS The parents of 328 preterm infants were recruited in 11 NICUs in Finland, Estonia, Sweden, Norway, Italy and Spain. They filled in daily diaries about how much time they(More)
OBJECTIVES To implement a didactic model for students specialising in intensive care nursing (n=12) and nurses working in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) (n=17). To evaluate nurse self-assessments following observation of children with congenital heart disease (CHD), before and after participation in the programme, as well as the usefulness of the(More)
The administration of (-)3-(3-hydroxyphenyl)-N-n-propylpiperidine (3-PPP) was found to partially, but significantly, suppress the acquisition (4–8 mg/kg IP) and performance (8–16 mg/kg IP) of a conditioned avoidance response (CAR) in male Sprague-Dawley rats. All statistically significant effects were observed within 2 h of injection. Furthermore, using a(More)
It was observed that rats that had been given drugs that enhance serotonergic neurotransmission,e.g. the serotonin releasing compounds p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) and fenfluramine, the MAO-A inhibitors and serotonin releasing agents amiflamine andα-ethyltryptamine and the serotonin agonists 5-methoxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeODMT),(More)
