We report four pedigrees of the group of Na(+)-K(+)-leaky red cell disorders of the 'hereditary stomatocytosis' class. Each showed pseudohyperkalaemia because of temperature-dependent loss of K(+) from red cells on storage of whole blood at room temperature. All pedigrees showed an abnormality in the temperature dependence of the 'passive leak' of the(More)
BACKGROUND Pregnancies complicated by abnormal umbilical artery Doppler blood flow patterns often result in the baby being born both preterm and growth-restricted. These babies are at high risk of milk intolerance and necrotising enterocolitis, as well as post-natal growth failure, and there is no clinical consensus about how best to feed them. Policies of(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe feeding and gastrointestinal outcomes in growth-restricted infants <29 weeks' gestation and to determine the rate of feed advancement which they tolerate. DESIGN Analysis of prospectively collected data from a randomised feeding trial, the Abnormal Doppler Enteral Prescription Trial (ADEPT). SETTING 54 neonatal units in the UK and(More)
BACKGROUND: Growth-restricted preterm infants are at increased risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and initiation of enteral feeding is frequently delayed. There is no evidence that this delay is beneficial and it might further compromise nutrition and growth. METHODS: Infants with gestation below 35 weeks, birth weight below the 10th(More)
