BACKGROUND Low blood glucose in newborns is difficult to detect clinically. Hence a reliable "point of care" device (glucometer) for early detection and treatment of low glucose is needed. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of five readily available glucometers for the detection of low blood glucose in newborn infants. METHOD Glucostix measurements(More)
Results are reported from the clinical evaluation of a new radiopharmaceutical for renal imaging, 99mTc-DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid). Sixty-five patients were studied and six of these patients' scintiphotos are illustrated. The physical characteristics of 99mTc and the mercurial-like kinetics of the chelate produced high-resolution scintiphotos of the(More)

Diffuse renal cortical necrosis from any cause is rare in the Western World. Over the last 5 decades, there have been isolated case reports of acute cortical necrosis as a consequence of acute pancreatitis, but the long-term outcome of these patients has not previously been reported. Here, we report 3 young men, aged 16-21 years, who have presented over the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate outcome of patients with severe closed head injury treated with pegorgotein, a scavenger of oxygen-derived free radicals. DESIGN Randomized, parallel, placebo-controlled, third-party-blind, multicenter trial, with a blinded, multicenter follow-up protocol. SETTING Twenty-nine centers in the United States. PATIENTS A total of 463(More)
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether end-tidal carbon monoxide (CO) corrected for ambient CO (ETCOc), as a single measurement or in combination with serum total bilirubin (STB) measurements, can predict the development of hyperbilirubinemia during the first 7 days of life.METHODS: From nine multinational clinical sites, 1370(More)
