Eleven term neonates treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation received bumetanide to treat volume overload. All patients had stable renal function, no history of prior diuretic therapy, and no overt evidence of hepatobiliary disease or hypoalbuminemia. Pretreatment creatinine clearance was 35.2 +/- 4.5 ml/min per 1.73 m2 (range, 20.3 to 57.5).(More)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) is endorsed by the US Secretary of Health and Human Services as part of the recommended uniform screening panel for newborns. Although initial recommendations for implementation exist, as states and hospitals have moved forward with implementation of screening, new challenges and areas for(More)
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used as circulatory support or bridge to transplantation in patients with severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. Left heart decompression is needed to reduce pulmonary edema, prevent pulmonary hemorrhage, and reduce ventricular distention that may aid in recovery of function. We reviewed our experience from(More)
Some human newborns have a syndrome characterized by irreversible pulmonary hypertension and severe hypoxemia and by medial hypertrophy and adventitial thickening of pulmonary arteries. We considered that newborn calves made severely hypoxic might reproduce features of the human disease. When 2-day-old calves were placed at 4,300 m simulated altitude,(More)
Over a 12-month period, 28 neonatal patients in respiratory failure were supported with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and 11 of these underwent successful repair of the right carotid artery post-ECMO. Nine of 11 were studied with duplex color-flow Doppler imaging between 14 and 109 days of age and again at 1 year of age. A velocity ratio (A/B)(More)
