OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of low intensity recorded maternal voice on the physiologic reactions of healthy premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). METHODS: Physiologic responses of 20 healthy preterm infants in the NICU of Shariati Hospital, Tehran, were obtained during a 15min intervention including three 5min periods (no-sound control, audio recorded playback of mother's voice, no-sound post-voice). The intervention was presented three times a day for three consecutive days...

BACKGROUND: Infant-specific pertussis data, especially among neonates, are limited and variable. This study (NCT01890850) provides overall and age-specific pertussis incidence and associated healthcare utilization and costs among commercially insured infants in the United States. METHODS: Nearly 1.2 million infants born from 2005-2010 with commercial health plan coverage were followed during their first 12 months of life. Pertussis cases were identified from medical claims (ICD-9-CM 033...

BACKGROUND: Respiratory failure is a leading cause of neonatal mortality in the developing world. Bubble continuous positive airway pressure (bCPAP) is a safe, effective intervention for infants with respiratory distress and is widely used in developed countries. Because of its high cost, bCPAP is not widely utilized in low-resource settings. We evaluated the performance of a new bCPAP system to treat severe respiratory distress in a low resource setting, comparing it to nasal oxygen therapy, the current standard of care...

Premature birth (<37 weeks gestation) occurs in ~11% of all births in the US. These infants are at risk of chronic lung disease and respiratory conditions, including bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Respiratory viruses are important causes of acute respiratory illness (ARI) in preterm infants, leading to rehospitalization, increased health care burden, and long-term morbidity. Human metapneumovirus (HMPV) is a paramyxovirus discovered in 2001 that is related to respiratory syncytial virus. Epidemiologic studies show that HMPV is a leading cause of ARI in children and adults worldwide...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the Mayo Clinic experience with emergency video telemedicine consultations for high-risk newborn deliveries. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From March 26, 2013, through December 31, 2015, the Division of Neonatal Medicine offered newborn telemedicine consultations to 6 health system sites. A wireless tablet running secure video conferencing software was used by the local care teams. Descriptive data were collected on all consultations. After each telemedicine consult, a survey was sent to the neonatologist and referring provider to assess the technology, teamwork, and user satisfaction...

REVIEW
Michaël Sauthier, Louise Rose, Philippe Jouvet
A 2005 consensus conference led by the National Association for Medical Direction of Respiratory Care (NAMDRC) defined prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV) for adults as invasive and/or noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIV) for ≥21 consecutive days for ≥6 h/d. In children, no such consensus definition exists. This results in substantial variability in definitional criteria, making study of the impact and outcomes of PMV across and within settings problematic. The objective of this work was to identify how PMV for children and neonates is described in the literature and to outline pediatric/neonatal considerations related to PMV, with the goal of proposing a pediatric/neonatal adaptation to the NAMDRC definition...

BACKGROUND: Improving the neonatal mortality is a challenge in developing countries like Iraq. Increasing demands and overload of maternity services can considerably limit the improvement in neonatal outcomes. We aimed to document the numbers, disease patterns and outcomes of admitted newborns and the improvement after implementing clinical protocols and to identify possible future target measures. METHOD: A descriptive study was conducted at neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at a regional hospital from 2011 to 2013...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the outcome of monochorionic (MC) twin pregnancies affected by selective intra-uterine growth restriction (sIUGR) according to the umbilical artery Doppler pattern of the smaller twin. METHODS: Medline, Embase, Cinhal and ClinicalTrials.gov databases (2000-2016) were searched. sIUGR was defined as the presence of one twin with estimated fetal weight and/or abdominal circumference less than 10(th) or 5(th) percentile and classified according to the umbilical artery Doppler flow pattern of the smaller twin (type I: persistently positive, type II: persistently absent/reversed, type III: intermittently absent/reversed)...

BACKGROUND: Exploring the distribution of nosocomial pathogens among different categories of intensive care units (ICUs) is critical to improving the management of health care-associated infection (HAI). Despite both single- and multicenter studies, the nature of the variations of HAIs within various ICUs remains inadequately evaluated. METHODS: Data on HAIs at our hospital during the period January 2010-December 2015 were collected from 8 ICUs, namely, respiratory, cardiovascular, neurology, neonatal, hematology, emergency, cardiothoracic surgery, and neurosurgery ICUs, at a tertiary hospital...

CONTEXT: In spontaneously breathing preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) receiving nasal continuous positive airway pressure, a method of less invasive surfactant administration (LISA) using a thin catheter has been described as an alternative to endotracheal intubation for surfactant delivery to reduce lung injury. OBJECTIVE: A systematic review of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing LISA with the standard method of surfactant delivery for clinical outcomes...

"Golden 60 minutes "or "Golden Hour" is defined as the first hour of the newborn after birth. This hour includes resuscitation care, transport to nursery from place of birth and course in nursery. The concept of "Golden hour" includes evidence based interventions that are done in the first 60 min of postnatal life for the better long term outcome of the preterm newborn especially extreme premature, extreme low birth weight and very low birth weight. The evidence shows that the concept of "Golden 60 minutes" leads to reduction in neonatal complications like hypothermia, hypoglycemia, intraventricular hemorrhage, chronic lung disease and retinopathy of prematurity...

REVIEW
Ga Won Jeon
The incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) has not decreased over the last decade. The most important way to decrease BPD is by weaning the patient from the ventilator as soon as possible in order to reduce ventilator-induced lung injury that underlies BPD, and by using a noninvasive ventilator (NIV). Use of a heated, humidified, high flow nasal cannula (HHHFNC), which is the most recently introduced NIV mode for respiratory support in preterm infants, is rapidly increasing in many neonatal intensive care units due to the technical ease of use without sealing, and the attending physician's preference compared to other NIV modes...

INTRODUCTION: Neonatal outcomes can be directly and indirectly affected by caesarean delivery (CD). Data on CD rates in semi-urban and rural hospitals in resource-limited settings are scarce and yet are needed to better guide the care of women and neonates in these settings. we carried out this study to determine the frequency of CD, its indications and the frequency of the various adverse neonatal outcomes (ANO) in the Limbe Regional Hospital (LRH) and the Buea Regional Hospital (BRH), Cameroon...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if weaning from nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) to lesser supportive low flow nasal cannula (LFNC) results in a change in electrical activity of the diaphragm in preterm infants. DESIGN: Prospective observational study. SETTING: Neonatal intensive care unit. PATIENTS: Stable preterm infants weaned from nCPAP to LFNC (1 L/min). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Change in diaphragmatic activity, expressed as amplitude, peak and tonic activity, measured by transcutaneous electromyography (dEMG) from 30 min before (baseline) until 180 min after weaning...

: The Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS) is one of the most frequent pathologies in the premature neonates and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to determine the association between parental smoking and the development of this syndrome. This study was an observational, longitudinal, retrospective, analytical, prolective type, with the neonates in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Hospital Regional Monterrey (HRMI), who developed RDS (cases) and those that do not (controls), during the period January 2012 - April 2015, in both groups were determined the smoking habits of the father and the statistical analysis using SPSS (v...
