Sepsis is the most common cause of mortality in intensive care units. Although sepsis-associated encephalopathy (SAE) is reported to be a leading manifestation of sepsis, its pathogenesis remains unclear. In our previous studies, we showed that heat shock pretreatment can reduce mortality in polymicrobial septic rats and protect the cerebral cortical(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) during hospitalization is thought to be associated with adverse pulmonary outcomes in very preterm infants. This observational study aimed to compare the lung function in very preterm infants with and without PDA at discharge. METHODS Very preterm infants, admitted to our neonatal intensive unit, who(More)

Based on the Technology Acceptance Model and D&M model, the proposed framework is validated with 285 respondents from online e-learning users in Taiwan, which shows that information quality, service quality, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness(More)
This study aimed to evaluate changes in tibial bone speed of sound (SOS) over time, in preterm and term infants during infancy, in addition to identifying factors influencing the development of tibial SOS during infancy. Preterm (n = 155) and term (n = 65) infants were enrolled in this study. Tibial bone SOS was measured using quantitative ultrasonography(More)
