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)
BACKGROUND Since 1990, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been used as a bridge to cardiac transplantation in 47 patients. METHODS A review of the ECMO database, approved by the Arkansas Children's Hospital institutional review board, forms the basis of this report. We made statistical comparison using Fisher's exact probability testing. The(More)
