Low cerebral blood flow resistance in nonventilated preterm infants predicts poor neurologic outcome.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To examine whether cerebral blood flow variables during the first critical day of life can predict the 1-yr neurologic outcome in ventilated and nonventilated preterm infants. DESIGN Prospective follow-up study. SETTING Neonatal intensive care unit of university central hospital. PATIENTS Forty-nine preterm infants <33 wks of gestation… (More)
