Randomized Trial of Liberal Versus Restrictive Guidelines for Red Blood Cell Transfusion in Preterm Infants
Objective. Although many centers have introduced more restrictive transfusion policies for preterm infants in recent years, the benefits and adverse consequences of allowing lower hematocrit levels… Expand

- D. Coustan, C. Nelson, M. Carpenter, S. Carr, L. Rotondo, J. Widness
- Obstetrics and gynecology
- 1 April 1989
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has recommended screening for gestational diabetes, using a 50-g, 1-hour glucose challenge (threshold for further testing 140 mg/dL or… Expand
The Assessment of Newborn Iron Stores at Birth: A Review of the Literature and Standards for Ferritin Concentrations
Background: Serum ferritin measurements are used in clinical populations to estimate total body iron stores and the risk of subsequent iron deficiency or overload. The lack of normative newborn serum… Expand
Recombinant human erythropoietin stimulates erythropoiesis and reduces erythrocyte transfusions in very low birth weight preterm infants.
DESIGN AND METHODS We hypothesized that treatment with recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO) would stimulate erythropoiesis and would thereby reduce the need for erythrocyte transfusions in… Expand
Should the fifty-gram, one-hour plasma glucose screening test for gestational diabetes be administered in the fasting or fed state?
- D. Coustan, J. Widness, M. Carpenter, L. Rotondo, D. C. Pratt, W. Oh
- American journal of obstetrics and gynecology
- 1 May 1986
To determine whether the 50 gm, 1-hour plasma glucose screening test for gestational diabetes should be administered in the fasted or fed state, 50 presumed normal and 20 gestational diabetic… Expand
Effect of intravenous iron supplementation on erythropoiesis in erythropoietin-treated premature infants.
OBJECTIVE To test the efficacy and safety of combining intravenous iron in amounts approximating the in utero iron accretion rate and the postnatal iron loss with erythropoietin (EPO) in very low… Expand

- J. Widness
- 1 November 2008
This review summarizes the current thinking about the causes of anemia universally experienced by preterm infants in the early postnatal weeks. In addition to describing developmentally determined… Expand
Randomized Trial of Liberal Versus Restrictive Guidelines for Red Blood Cell Transfusion in Preterm Infants: In Reply
when these 4 patients were entered into the study (median age of entry was 3 days), when the first transfusion was performed, and what the hematocrit value was before the transfusion. Because… Expand
Amniotic Fluid Erythropoietin Correlates With Umbilical Plasma Erythropoietin in Normal and Abnormal Pregnancy
- K. Teramo, J. Widness, G. Clemons, P. Voutilainen, S. Mckinlay, R. Schwartz
- Obstetrics and gynecology
- 1 May 1987
In the human fetus, elevated plasma erythropoietin levels have been found in high-risk pregnancies at delivery. We examined the relationship of amniotic fluid erythropoietin and umbilical plasma… Expand
Clinical performance of an in-line point-of-care monitor in neonates.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the bias, precision, and blood loss characteristics of an ex vivo in-line point-of-care testing blood gas and electrolyte monitor designed for use in critically ill newborn… Expand
