End tidal carbon dioxide monitoring—Its reliability in neonates
The study showed that ETCO2 correlates closely with PaCO2 in most clinical situations in neonates and the authors recommend its use in all level III NICUs in ventilated babies. Expand
Approach to Infants Born Through Meconium Stained Amniotic Fluid: Evolution Based on Evidence?
The pathophysiology, evolution and the evidence, randomized control trials, observational studies, and translational research to support recommendations to prevent delay in resuscitation and minimize hypoxia‐ischemia often associated with MSAF are discussed. Expand
Effect of intrapartum oropharyngeal (IP-OP) suction on meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) in developing country: A RCT.
IP-OP suctioning did not reduce the incidence or severity of MAS even in a setting of high incidence of MAS in a developing country and mortality in two groups was comparable. Expand
Gastric lavage for prevention of feeding problems in neonates with meconium-stained amniotic fluid: a randomised controlled trial
Gastric lavage in newborns with meconium-stained amniotic fluid does not prevent or reduce the occurrence of feeding problems or secondary meconia aspiration syndrome. Expand

Endotracheal suction in term non vigorous meconium stained neonates-A pilot study.
This study demonstrates that it is feasible to randomize non-vigorous infants born through meconium stained liquor to receive on not receive endotracheal suction and there is a need for a multi-center trial to address whether the current practices and guidelines can be justified. Expand
Neonatal mechanical ventilation—Experience at a level II care centre
Lower success rates in ventilation is due to the poor survival of babies weighing <1000 gms and those with a gestation of <28 wks with nosocomial infections as a major complication of assisted ventilation being an additional factor. Expand
Towards understanding global patterns of antimicrobial use and resistance in neonatal sepsis: insights from the NeoAMR network
The apparent burden of AMR in a given NNU in the LMIC setting can be influenced by a range of factors which will vary substantially between NNUs, and these variations must be considered when designing interventions to improve neonatal mortality globally. Expand
Role of prophylactic antibiotics in neonates born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid (MSAF)—a randomized controlled trial
Routine antibiotic prophylaxis in neonates born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid did not reduce the incidence of sepsis in this study population. Expand
Seroconversion following killed polio vaccine in neonates
A significantly greater number of children who received some vaccine at birth (IPV or OPV) were protected against poliomyelitis by 6 weeks age as compared to those who received no immunization at birth. Expand
