BACKGROUND: The global plight of stillbirths and neonatal mortality is concentrated in low- and middle-income countries. The ambitious targets introduced by the World Health Organization in the Every Newborn Action Plan demand a commitment to research that promotes equitable perinatal outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this review was to understand the opportunities for global perinatal research and the accompanying challenges. METHODS: We conducted a literature search to identify research prioritization exercises from 2014 to 2018 pertaining to global perinatal health...

BACKGROUND: In preterm infants, neonatal weight growth is associated with neurodevelopmental outcome but is a poor indicator of growth quality. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this work was to measure the relationship between neonatal length growth and the 2-year neurological outcome in preterm infants. METHODS: A total of 2,403 infants enrolled in the LIFT cohort with gestational age less than 34 weeks were studied. Neonatal observed length growth (OLG) was calculated as the change in length Z-score between birth and discharge...

REVIEW

The soon-to-be-delivered fetus and preterm infant have been treated with glucocorticoids to prepare for postnatal life, historically for more than 40 years. The use of glucocorticoids is as much for replacement of cortisol in the setting of a poorly functioning hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis in the preterm infant, as it is for prevention of long-term lung dysfunction. Potential negative effects of glucocorticoid treatment on brain development and function have been observed more often with dexamethasone therapy than with use of other glucocorticoids...

REVIEW
Whitney A Booker, Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman
Antenatal corticosteroids remain one of the crucial interventions in those at risk for imminent preterm birth. Therapeutic benefits include reducing major complications of prematurity such as respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular hemorrhage, and necrotizing enterocolitis, as well as an overall decrease in neonatal deaths. Optimal reductions in neonatal morbidity and mortality require a thoughtful review of the timing of administration. In addition, a thorough understanding is required of which patients maximally benefit from this intervention in the management and counseling of those at risk for preterm birth...

REVIEW
Elizabeth K Sewell, Sarah Keene
Prenatal diagnosis has changed perinatal medicine dramatically, allowing for additional fetal monitoring, referral and counseling, delivery planning, the option of fetal intervention, and targeted postnatal management. Teams participating in the delivery room care of infants with known anomalies should be knowledgeable about specific needs and expectations but also ready for unexpected complications. A small number of neonates will need rapid access to postnatal interventions, such as surgery, but most can be stabilized with appropriate neonatal care...

Matthew A Rysavy
This article elaborates on how neonatologists and perinatologists might conceive of prognosis as an intervention with outcomes relevant to patients, families, and society at large and highlights aspects of this important area of practice requiring further study.

Routine use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to support preterm infants with respiratory distress is an evidenced-based strategy to decrease incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. However, rates of CPAP failure remain unacceptably high in very premature neonates, who are at high risk for developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Using the GRADE framework to assess the quality of available evidence, this article reviews strategies aimed at decreasing CPAP failure, starting with delivery room interventions and followed through to system-based efforts in the neonatal intensive care unit...

Caffeine reduces the risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Optimizing caffeine use could increase therapeutic benefit. We performed a systematic-review and random-effects meta-analysis of studies comparing different timing of initiation and dose of caffeine on the risk of BPD. Earlier initiation, compared to later, was associated with a decreased risk of BPD (5 observational studies; n = 63,049, adjusted OR 0.69; 95% CI 0.64-0.75, GRADE: low quality). High-dose caffeine, compared to standard-dose, was associated with a decreased risk of BPD (3 randomized trials, n = 432, OR 0...

Globally the last decade has experienced an unprecedented mobile phone revolution in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC). Sub-Saharan Africa is the fastest growing mobile phone market with expected 535 million unique subscribers in 2020 equivalent to a 50% penetration rate extending much farther than any other technology (GSMA, 2017, The Mobile Economy. Sub Saharan Africa). The rapid growth of, and access to, mobile technology has created an opportunity to transform the way to tackle global health challenges, a potential realized by technological developers, researchers and policy makers with great enthusiasm...

BACKGROUND: Work stress prevention can reduce health risks for individuals, as well as organisational and societal costs. The success of work stress interventions depends on proper implementation. Failure to take into account the needs of employees and supervisors can hinder intervention implementation. This study aimed to explore employee and supervisor needs regarding organisational work stress prevention. METHODS: Semi-structured telephone interviews were conducted with employees (n = 7) and supervisors (n = 8) from different sectors, such as the finance, health care, and services industry...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether monitoring cerebral oxygen tissue saturation (StO2 ) with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and brain activity with amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) can predict infants at risk for intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and death in the first 72 hours of life. STUDY DESIGN: A NIRS sensor and electroencephalography leads were placed on 127 newborns <32 weeks of gestational age at birth. Ten minutes of continuous NIRS and aEEG along with heart rate, peripheral arterial oxygen saturation, fraction of inspired oxygen, and mean airway pressure measurements were obtained in the delivery room...

The aim of this study was to contribute further to existing randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses showing advantages in the outcome of less invasive surfactant administration (LISA)-treated infants and add new aspects concerning treatment and outcome data collected in the routine clinical setting. Four hundred seven very low birth weight infants who received surfactant via either LISA or intubation methods were enrolled in the observational cross-sectional multicenter study. To compare infants in terms of surfactant administration, we used an exact matching procedure (the same gestational age, severe perinatal depression (pH < 7...

We evaluated the causes for neonatal thrombocytopenia (NT), the duration of NT, and the indications of platelet transfusions (PT) by means of a retrospective cohort study over a 23-year period. Neonates with NT were identified via ICD-10 code D69.6. Of 371 neonates (1.8/1000 live births) with NT, the majority (312; 84.1%) had early onset thrombocytopenia, and 282 (76%) were preterm born. The most frequent causes for NT were early and late onset sepsis and asphyxia. The mean duration of thrombocytopenia was 10...

OBJECTIVE: The main aim is to determine the incidence and associated factors of late onset sepsis (LOS) in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants (500-1500 g), from the NEOCOSUR Network during years 2001-2013. Secondary objectives are to describe the microbiology of the first and second episode of LOS and to study the association between catheter dwell time and LOS. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Demographic information and outcome data are prospectively and routinely collected across the Network using predefined diagnostic criteria and online data entry...

AIM: This study compiled percentiles for cardiorespiratory parameters in healthy term neonates during quiet sleep. METHODS: We enrolled 215 healthy term neonates born at Hannover Medical School, Germany, between October 2011 and March 2013. They were prospectively observed on the maternity ward at a median age of two days using six-hour recordings of pulse oximeter plethysmography, oxygen saturation, thoracic breathing movements and electrocardiogram during sleep in a supine position...
