Plasma creatinine in newborns is elevated at birth and has been reported to stabilize at lower values only after several weeks. These elevated values resulting from renal and nonrenal phenomena have severely limited the use of creatinine in the neonate as an assessment of GFR. A kinetics method of creatinine analysis that minimizes the effect of… CONTINUE READING
