Multiplicative weight-update algorithms such as Winnow and Weighted Majority have been studied extensively due to their on-line mistake bounds' logarithmic dependence on N , the total number of inputs, which allows them to be applied to problems where N is exponential. However, a large N requires techniques to efficiently compute the weighted sums of inputs(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of umbilical cord milking as compared with early cord clamping on hematological parameters at 6 weeks of age among term and near term neonates. STUDY DESIGN This was a randomized control trial. Eligible neonates (>35 weeks' gestation) were randomized in intervention and control groups (100(More)
BACKGROUND Internet-based distance learning combined with local hands-on skill enhancement can provide high-quality standardized education to in-service healthcare professionals in a wide geographical area. OBJECTIVE Primary objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of internet-based distance learning in conjunction with local hands-on skill(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the clinical, behavioral and health-care associated risk factors of intrapartum perinatal mortality (IPPM). DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Labor room and postnatal wards of a teaching hospital in North India. PARTICIPANTS Pregnant women were eligible for enrollment in the study if period of gestation at delivery was 35(More)
Pseudotumoral or macronodular hepatosplenic tuberculosis (HSTB) is rare. Only 31 cases have been documented in imaging literature so far. Presented is the clinico-imaging review with five additional new cases of this uncommon variety. Due to nonspecific wide spectrum of imaging appearances, biopsy is mandatory in almost all cases. Clinical recovery and(More)
OBJECTIVE To provide normative data for transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) measurements in healthy term and late-preterm Indian neonates during first 72 h of age using a multiwavelength reflectance transcutaneous bilimeter. METHODS TcB measurements were performed in healthy neonates (gestation 35 wk), in a well-baby ward, using a multiwavelength(More)
BACKGROUND Phototherapy is the mainstay of treatment of neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia. The commonly used light sources for providing phototherapy are special blue fluorescent tubes, compact fluorescent tubes and halogen spotlights. However, light emitting diodes (LEDs) as light sources with high luminous intensity, narrow wavelength band and higher delivered(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether light-emitting diode (LED) phototherapy is as efficacious as compact fluorescent tube (CFT) phototherapy for the treatment of non-hemolytic jaundice in healthy term and late preterm neonates. STUDY DESIGN Multi centre open label randomized controlled trial. SETTING Four tertiary care neonatal units. SUBJECTS Healthy term(More)
BACKGROUND Bronchiolitis is one of the most frequent causes of respiratory failure in infants; some infants will require intensive care and mechanical ventilation. There is lack of evidence regarding effective treatment for bronchiolitis other than supportive care. Abnormalities of surfactant quantity or quality (or both) have been observed in severe cases(More)
