BACKGROUND: Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) remains a concern among very low birth weight infants (VLBWI). Several factors have been incriminated in the development of IVH. Although hypercapnia early in life has been associated with an increased risk of IVH, the effect of cumulative exposure to hypercapnia (CEH) on the risk and severity of IVH has not been explored.OBJECTIVE: To determine whether CEH in the first week of life is associated with risk and/or severity of IVH in VLBWI.METHODS… CONTINUE READING
