We systematically reviewed randomized controlled trials examining inhaled nitric oxide (INO) for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome or acute lung injury in children and adults. Qualitative assessments of identified trials were made, and metaanalyses were performed according to Cochrane methodology. Five randomized controlled trials (n =(More)
OBJECTIVES To systematically review the effectiveness of the Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) as compared with conventional care to improve long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes or short-term medical and neurodevelopmental outcomes in preterm and/or low birth weight infants. STUDY DESIGN With the use of standard(More)
OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that fetal branch pulmonary artery (PA) diameters indirectly reflect lung mass and are associated with postnatal outcome in cases of isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). STUDY DESIGN We retrospectively reviewed echocardiograms of fetuses with CDH, measuring branch PA diameters and other echocardiographic parameters.(More)
BACKGROUND Acute hypoxemic respiratory failure affects all age groups and may result from a number of systemic diseases. It continues to be associated with high mortality and morbidity. Initial studies examining the effect of inhaled nitric oxide in respiratory failure demonstrated transient improvement in oxygenation but did not examine mortality or other(More)
The intracellular Na ion activity (aiNa) and the contractile tension (T) of sheep cardiac Purkinje fibers were simultaneously measured employing recessed-tip Na+-selective glass microelectrodes and a mechano-electric transducer. The aiNa of 6.4 +/- 1.6 mM (mean +/- SD, n = 56) was obtained in fibers perfused with normal Tyrode's solution. The changes in(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the interaction of spontaneous breaths, manual ventilation, and tidal volumes (V(T)) during stabilization of infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) in the delivery room. STUDY DESIGN We studied infants with CDH receiving respiratory support at birth. Airway pressure, flow, and volume were measured, and each breath or(More)

Delineate the " gold " and " proxy " gold standards for measuring hearing impairment. 3. Describe the screening tests currently used to detect newborn hearing impairment. 4. Identify the advantages and disadvantages of(More)
A case of traumatic intracerebellar hematoma is presented. The salient feature of the patient's early clinical course was delayed, rapid deterioration in the absence of antecedent focal neurological findings. The rarity of this lesion and its high mortality due to delay in correct diagnosis have been previously emphasized. Reported cases have followed a(More)
