The aim of this study was to develop an arterial occlusion method and compare it with the venous occlusion method for measurement of peripheral oxygen utilisation in neonates using near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Twenty healthy neonates were studied. Arterial occlusion was produced by inflating a neonatal blood pressure cuff to 100 mmHg for 30-40 s and(More)
Efforts have been made to find new, non-invasive methods for assessing tissue oxygenation and haemodynamics, particularly in the brain of the fetus and the newborn infant. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a developmental technique that provides just such a method, allowing calculation of variables such as cerebral blood flow and cerebral blood volume.(More)
AIM To evaluate peripheral oxygen consumption (VO(2)) measurements using near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) with arterial occlusion in healthy term neonates by studying the effect of limb cooling on peripheral and global VO(2). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty two healthy term neonates were studied. Peripheral VO(2) was measured by NIRS using arterial occlusion(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of an induced change in global metabolic rate on peripheral oxygen consumption (VO(2)) in healthy full term neonates. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty four healthy full term neonates were studied. Peripheral VO(2) was measured by near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) using arterial occlusion and measurement of the oxyhaemoglobin (HbO(2))(More)

In addition to face to face interviews with homeless mothers, the Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL) and Kessler Psychological Distress scale (K10) were used to assess the mental health status of this population. We interviewed 13 mothers (aged 21 to 36 years) and collected data on 13 children (aged 3 months to 4 years). Due to the age of the children, two(More)

Recent efforts to mainstream social media-based and citizen-led political deliberations to complement traditional government-led e-Participation, must among others address a number of technical challenges. One of these challenges is how to automatically filter and extract meaningful information or knowledge from streams of social media data contributed by(More)
