OBJECTIVE To determine the expected systolic, mean and diastolic blood pressures at birth and respective rates of change during the first 72 h of life in infants born at <28 weeks estimated gestational age (EGA) with a favorable short-term outcome, defined as survival to 14 days with grade II or less intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH).

The underlying mechanism as to why some hypotensive preterm infants do not respond to inotropic medications remains unclear. For these infants, we hypothesize that impaired vasomotor function is a significant factor and is manifested through a decrease in low-frequency blood pressure variability across regulatory components of vascular tone. Infants born(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify factors associated with responsiveness to dopamine therapy for hypotension and the relationship to brain injury in a cohort of preterm infants. STUDY DESIGN The pharmacy database at St Louis Children's Hospital was retrospectively queried to identify infants who (a) were born <28 weeks gestation between 2012 and 2014, (b) received(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between qualitative and quantitative amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) measures at term equivalent age (TEA) and brain injury on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in preterm infants. STUDY DESIGN A cohort of premature infants born at <30 weeks of gestation and with moderate-to-severe MRI injury on a TEA MRI scan was(More)
