Cerebral function monitoring: a new scoring system for the evaluation of brain maturation in neonates.
OBJECTIVE Cerebral function monitoring (CFM), using compressed single-channel amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram recorded from 2 biparietal electrodes, has been shown previously to be a simpleExpand

Outcome for infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: the first year.
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has been associated with a high mortality rate. The purposes of this study were to determine the impact of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) on theExpand

Surface colonization with coagulase-negative staphylococci in premature neonates.
To follow the emergence of surface colonization with coagulase-negative staphylococci in neonates, we sampled four surface sites (axilla, ear, nasopharynx, and rectum) in 18 premature infants duringExpand

Focal motor seizures heralding stroke in full-term neonates.
We describe the clinical syndrome, medical management, etiology, and neurologic outcome of stroke diagnosed by computed tomographic scan in 11 full-term neonates encountered during a two-year period.Expand

Biomarkers of brain injury in neonatal encephalopathy treated with hypothermia.
OBJECTIVE To determine if early serum S100B and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) levels are associated with neuroradiographic and clinical evidence of brain injury in newborns with encephalopathy. Expand

Iatrogenic hyperthermia and hypothermia in the neonate.
This article reviews the physiology of thermoregulation, hypothermia, and hyperthermia. The differential diagnosis of hypothermia and hyperthermia is discussed. The benefits of hypothermia followingExpand

Cardiac malposition, redistribution of fetal cardiac output, and left heart hypoplasia reduce survival in neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate cardiac position, left ventricular (LV) mass, and distribution of fetal cardiac output in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) who required extracorporeal membraneExpand

Prognosis with preoperative pulmonary function and lung volume assessment in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
OBJECTIVES To determine whether fatal pulmonary hypoplasia, as assessed by functional residual capacity (FRC), can be distinguished from other reversible causes of respiratory failure in infants withExpand

Use of high-fat formula for premature infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia: metabolic, pulmonary, and nutritional studies.
The use of dietary fat in preference to carbohydrate offers the theoretic advantage of diminishing carbon dioxide production and thus the respiratory quotient, which may be beneficial for babies withExpand
