Chest impedance (CI) is the current standard for cardio-respiratory monitoring in preterm infants but fails to provide direct and quantitative information on diaphragmatic activity. Transcutaneous electromyography (dEMG) is able to measure diaphragmatic activity, but its feasibility and repeatability to monitor respiratory rate (RR) and heart rate (HR) in preterm infants ...

Apnoea, desaturations and bradycardias are common problems in preterm infants which can be treated with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) and nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV). It is unclear whether synchronised NIPPV (SNIPPV) would be even more effective. To assess the effects of flow-SNIPPV, NIPPV and NCPAP on ...

Fetal thrombotic vasculopathy (FTV) is a recently described placental diagnosis associated with adverse perinatal outcomes. The Society for Pediatric Pathology proposed criteria for grading; however, no study has evaluated the proposed thresholds or established standards for large-vessel lesions. Using the Society for Pediatric Pathology criteria of 2 or more foci ...

Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV-1 remains a global health problem. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations advise the administration of a once-daily, oral, prophylactic regimen of the nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor nevirapine (NVP) from birth until four to six weeks of age for infants born to HIV-infected mothers in regions ...

Umbilical artery catheterization is the standard procedure for arterial access in neonatal intensive care units. An umbilical arterial catheter (UAC) needs to be placed accurately during the initial insertion because malpositioning increases catheter-related complications and subsequent repositioning exposes newborns to unnecessary handling, further radiologic exposure, and an increased risk of ...

Infants delivered at ≥37 weeks' gestation are considered full term, but research has demonstrated those born at 37 to 38 weeks (early term) have a higher risk for poor birth outcomes than deliveries at 39 to 41 weeks (full term). Despite this, many deliveries occur electively (scheduled, no medical indication) ...

The study investigated early postnatal vital signs in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants who later developed patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). We hypothesised that the early postnatal course of vital signs and blood gas variables might differ between infants whose PDA closed spontaneously, those who responded to ibuprofen and those ...

The present study examined whether infant-directed (ID) speech facilitates intersensory matching of audio-visual fluent speech in 12-month-old infants. German-learning infants' audio-visual matching ability of German and French fluent speech was assessed by using a variant of the intermodal matching procedure, with auditory and visual speech information presented sequentially. In Experiment ...

We examined whether a maximum threshold of time spent in nonmaternal care exists, beyond which infants have an increased risk of forming a disorganized infant-mother attachment. The hours per week infants spent in nonmaternal care at 7-8 months were examined as a continuous measure and as a dichotomous threshold (over ...

To test the hypothesis that umbilical cord arterial lactate is superior to pH for predicting short-term neonatal morbidity at term. We conducted a prospective cohort study of all consecutive, non-anomalous, singleton, vertex, term births from 2009 to 2012 at Washington University Medical Center. Umbilical arterial lactate and pH were measured ...

At birth, dynamic changes occur in serum components and hemodynamics, such as closure of the ductus arteriosus (DA). A previous study demonstrated that in full-term human neonates serum osmolality decreased transiently after birth, but recovered over the next few days. However, the significance of this transient decrease in osmolality has ...

Diet has a strong influence on the intestinal microbiota in both humans and animal models. It is well established that microbial colonization is required for normal development of the immune system and that specific microbial constituents prompt the differentiation or expansion of certain immune cell subsets. Nonetheless, it has been ...

Within the first year of life, infants learn to segment words from fluent speech. Previous research has shown that infants at 0;7·5 can segment consonant-initial words, yet the ability to segment vowel-initial words does not emerge until the age of 1;1-1;4 (0;11 in some restricted cases). In five experiments, we ...

Prone sleeping is a major risk factor for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and preterm infants are at significantly increased risk. In term infants, prone sleeping is associated with reduced mean arterial pressure (MAP) and cerebral tissue oxygenation index (TOI). However, little is known about the effects of sleeping position ...

Recent studies have demonstrated that infants can ignore spectral changes in sequentially presented complex tones and categorize them on the basis of missing fundamental pitch. However, infants' ability to discriminate these spectral changes is unknown. This study investigated the ability of adults, 7- and 3-month-olds to perceive changes in the ...

Researchers have long been interested in the emergence of transitive reasoning abilities (e.g., if A>B and B>C, then A>C). Preschool-aged children are found to make transitive inferences. Additionally, nonhuman animals demonstrate parallel abilities, pointing to evolutionary roots of transitive reasoning. The present research examines whether 16-month-old infants can make transitive ...

Autism as we know it, is caused iatrogenically and occurs reportedly one in 88 live birth [3]. Now national survey pegs autism prevalence one in 50 school-age children and the incidence is rising much fast in recent years. The author is hypothesizing idiopathic autism is caused by feeding of infant ...

In a pilot study, we found that the NIRS measurements were highly variable and dramatically decreased or disappeared sporadically while monitoring gastro-intestinal (GI) StO(2) on preterm neonates. We hypothesized that the light absorption characteristics of different neonatal and infant stool types may be interfering with NIRS GI measurements. Meconium, transitional, ...
