Hourly I.V. fluid administration rates (including all medication, catheter flush, etc.) were analyzed in all 19 neonates admitted between 1/80-10/80 who had CT Scans done in the first 16 days of life to confirm or R/O IVH. 12 infants had analyses of IV rates until suspicion of IVH by bloody CSF; confirmed by CT Scan. The 7 neonates who had normal CT scans(More)
Term large for gestational age neonates are at increased risk for hypoglycemia. It was postulated that identification of term LGA newborns by the Portland Intrauterine Growth Curve as opposed to the Colorado Intrauterine Growth Curve would allow for the classification of a lesser number of neonates as LGA but would identify the LGA neonates at risk for(More)
50 neonates with RLF and their matched controls were studied. 16 of 34 parameters analyzed had significance with RLF and are presented. These suggest that compromised neonates are susceptible to RLF.Analysis of therapeutic modalities also seem to reflect the need for greater support in these patients.Therapies to improve tissue perfusion and oxygenation may(More)
Extensive studies today support the linkage between optimized social and emotional learning and both ultimate school success and constructive behaviors. Consequently, there is the potential to enhance the quality-of-life experiences for many children who are not currently exposed to programs that have been proven to contribute to social and emotional(More)
Parents of ICN neonates were administered the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Spielberger, 1983) following admission to ICN and approximately 7 days pre-discharge. Parents of well neonates two to three days of age were also studied. From the data obtained mean state anxiety (SA) was greater than trait anxiety (TA) for both mothers and fathers although(More)
Three infants presented with tracheal obstruction at birth and were later found to have genitourinary anomalies. Infants #1 and #2 were siblings of the same sex (male) born a year apart. Infant #1 died in delivery. Autopsy revealed laryngeal stenosis with a pinpoint opening at the tracheal introitus, renal hypoplasia, malformed penis with protruding(More)
Gentamicin kinetics were studied in 12 neonates of gestational ages (GA) ≤34 wks. (27-34 wks.), of birth weight (700-1500) and compared to 5 neonates of GA >34 wks. (2440-4890). Timed peak and trough levels were drawn following the first dose of Gentamicin of 2.5 mg/kg I.V. over one half hour. All determinations were done in the first week of life.We(More)
Episodes of genocide involve both a mental and physical element in their evolution. The mental element appears to be rooted in authoritarian parenting and societies that engender fear and anger in children and stifle their capacity for emotional empathy. The repressed emotions find expression when societies produce false narratives to target particular(More)
HFPPV (ventilator rates 100-150/minute; I.E. ratio 1:2) was used in 4 infants of gestational ages 26-29 weeks, birth weight 700-1000 gms. Age at commencing HFPPV was 25-90 days. All were on mechanical ventilation with radiological and clinical broncho-pulmonary dysplasia. The Baby Bird ventilator was used. Duration of HFPPV 3-4 weeks.3 infants were(More)
50 neonates with RLF identified between 1/75 and 12/79 were compared with a group of matched controls without RLF. There was a significantly greater number of hours of oxygen exposure in the RLF group over the control group. Analysis of duration of exposure to FiO2 above room air is presented. No significant association was found with duration of exposure(More)
