Medication error prevention by clinical pharmacists in two children's hospitals.
TLDR
In general, the error rate was greatest among physicians with the least training, but no physician group was error free.
Serial Serum C-Reactive Protein Levels in the Diagnosis of Neonatal Infection
TLDR
Serial normal CRP levels were associated with a markedly reduced likelihood of infection as compared with that in the entire population before testing, with likelihood ratios ranging from 0.03 to 0.16 for the various subgroups.
Risk Factors for Early-onset Group B Streptococcal Sepsis: Estimation of Odds Ratios by Critical Literature Review
TLDR
Either screening with cultures at 28 weeks gestation or identification of clinical risk factors, ie, PROM, intrapartum fever, or prematurity, may identify parturients whose infants include 65% of those with EOGBS infection.

  • 25 February 2010
TLDR
Neither individual trials, pooled data from groups of randomized-controlled trials, nor critical examination of the immediate consequences of treatment provide evidence that medical or surgical closure of the ductus is beneficial in preterm infants, and these conclusions are supported by sufficient evidence.
Retinopathy of Prematurity and Pulse Oximetry: A National Survey of Recent Practices
TLDR
A “gradient of risk” towards less retinal ablation surgery when the max SpO2 is <98% in the first 2 weeks following birth is shown, and a randomized, controlled trial is needed to establish a safe upper limit ofSpO2 in the premature infant at risk for developing ROP.
