We investigated the relationship between total serum bilirubin and serum Tau and S100B protein levels, and predicted a cutoff level of bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity in term newborns. Total serum bilirubin, serum Tau, and S100B levels were measured in 92 jaundiced term newborns. A neurologic examination, electroencephalogram, brainstem auditory-evoked(More)
BACKGROUND Amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram (aEEG) at <6 h is the best single outcome predictor in term infants with perinatal asphyxia at normothermia. Hypothermia treatment has changed the cutoff values for outcome prediction by using time at onset of normal trace and SWC. Cerebral hemodynamics and oxygenation changes detected by near infrared(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this work was to determine the radiation dose received by infants from radiographic exposure and the contribution from scatter radiation due to radiographic exposure of other infants in the same room. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the entrance skin doses (ESDs) and effective doses of 23 infants with a gestational(More)
The aim of this study was to see whether the scores of the Bayley Infant Neurodevelopmental Screener of 45 high-risk preterm infants (gestational age 26-37 wk) between the ages of 3 and 24 months predicted neurodevelopmental status at 7 to 10 years of age. Neurodevelopmental status of 45/122 preterm infants, grouped according to their gestational ages of 26(More)
BACKGROUND Perfusion index (PI) is becoming a part of clinical practice in neonatology to monitor peripheral perfusion noninvasively. Hemodynamic and respiratory changes occur in newborns during the transition period after birth in which peripheral perfusion may be affected. Tachypnea is a frequent symptom during this period. While some tachypneic newborns(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of exogenous surfactant on respiratory indices in term infants with respiratory failure. METHODS Consecutive 18 mechanically ventilated term infants, who received a single dose of exogenous surfactant were retrospectively included into the study. The respiratory outcome of surfactant rescue(More)
