AIM The aim of this study was to analyze correlations between the onset and severity of retinopathy and premature birth. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the three groups of 30 newborns < 1250 g we have analyzed blood saturation, tissue oxygenation and blood transfusion. To estimate tissue oxygenation we used following formulas; 1. TVCE = [formula: see text] V-blood volume = 8% of body weight 2. Oxygen availability = (0.54 + 0.005 x gestational age) x Hb (g/dL) Additionally we investigated incidence… CONTINUE READING
