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)
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 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.
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)
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)
