Severe apnoeas following immunisation in premature infants.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  10375367     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Four premature infants developed apnoeas severe enough to warrant resuscitation after immunisation with diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT), and Haemophilus influenzae B (Hib). One required re-intubation and ventilation. Although apnoeas after immunisation are recognised, they are not well documented. It is time for further research to elucidate the best time to immunise such infants.
