OBJECTIVE The beneficial effects of hypertonic saline on neuronal survival and on cerebral blood flow have been shown in several animal models of global and focal brain ischemia. Because of the potential benefits of hypertonic solutions, it is hypothesized that hydroxyethyl starch enhances cerebral blood flow and improves long-term outcome after cardiac(More)
During cardiopulmonary resuscitation, when an intravenous line is not present or easily obtainable, the intracardiac injection of drugs has been a traditional route of choice. However, the intracardiac administration may be associated with serious complications. We have given epinephrine endotracheally to ten newborn infants who all had bradycardia that did(More)
There is no consensus regarding protein intake and the doses of recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEpo) and iron in the treatment of anaemia of prematurity (AOP). This open, randomized study has compared the effectiveness of 50 IU r-HuEpo/kg with that of 100 IU/kg, both given subcutaneously thrice weekly. In addition, two different protein supplements(More)
Fentanyl is in many neonatal intensive care units the sedative of choice. One side-effect is, however, the possibility of muscle and/or chest wall rigidity. A pregnant woman with a critical pulmonary valve stenosis had a balloon dilatation at 26 weeks of gestation. She was put on propranolol, but went into a severe cardiac failure. In week 31, she developed(More)
Two cases of neonatal renal tubular dysfunction and metabolic acidosis due to maternal sniffing of a product containing toluene are reported. Both mothers had been sniffing regularly throughout their pregnancies. The infants were dysmature and had some dysmorphic features. They had hyperchloraemic acidosis and exhibited amino-aciduria. The metabolic changes(More)
