OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) and exchange transfusion (EXT) on rhesus haemolytic disease of the newborn (Rh-HDN) and evaluate treatment-related side effects. METHODS Retrospective chart review of two cohorts of newborns with Rh-HDN, treated with (Group 2) or without (Group 1) IVIg. Length of phototherapy, number(More)
BACKGROUND Apnea of prematurity (AOP) occurs frequently in preterm infants and a variable proportion of AOP can be induced by gastroesophageal reflux (GER). Conservative treatment, including dietary modifications, should be the first-line approach for both GER and GER-related apneas in this population. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy of a(More)
BACKGROUND Apnoea of prematurity (AOP) frequently recurs in preterm infants. We have previously shown that a significant but variable proportion of AOP is induced by gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR). AIM The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of sodium alginate in reducing the frequency of GOR-related AOP. SUBJECTS Twenty-eight preterm infants(More)
BACKGROUND Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) is common in preterm infants; conservative interventions (i.e. dietary changes) should represent the first-line approach. AIM To evaluate by combined pH and impedance monitoring (pH-MII) the effect of a new preterm formula thickened with amylopectin (TPF) on GOR features in symptomatic preterm infants. METHODS(More)
UNLABELLED This crossover study showed that non-nutritive sucking, provided with a pacifier in 30 preterm infants, had no effect on acid and nonacid gastro-esophageal reflux evaluated by esophageal pH-impedance, and thus may be reasonably used in preterm neonates with symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux. TRIAL REGISTRATION ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02023216.
In the last years, given the high market pressure and the increased competition in several industries, the search for new business opportunity is focusing on service activities. After-Sales (AS) service has become increasingly important as a source of differentiation and market share for manufacturers and resellers, as well as a strategic driver for(More)
A plethora of research and industrial contributions emphasizes the economic and strategic role of services in adding further value to a product throughout its lifelong journey with the customer. However, there is still a limited comprehension of the dynamics underlying After-Sales (AS) processes along the whole service network-which usually encompasses a(More)
