Prevalence, Risk factors and outcomes of Germinal Matrix Intraventricular Hemorrhage in Preterm Babies: A Single Center Study
Germinal matrix intraventricular hemorrhage (GM-IVH) is a major cause of neurological disabilities in preterm babies. This study aimed to determine the prevalence, perinatal risk factors, and outcomes associated with GM-IVH in preterm babies. We conducted a prospective case-control study on preterm infants born at ≤37 weeks of gestation and admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of the Pediatrics Department, ... Read more

Introduction: Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is emerging as a cause of diarrhea in infants and children in both community and hospital settings. This increasing incidence has been attributed, in part, to the emergence of a hyper virulent strain of C. difficile, increased antibiotic prescriptions, increased awareness of CDI among healthcare providers and emergence of highly sensitive detection methodologies for CDI. ...

Current methods of non-invasive ventilatory support for neonates.
Non-invasive ventilatory support can reduce the adverse effects associated with intubation and mechanical ventilation, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, sepsis, and trauma to the upper airways. In the last 4 decades, nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has been used to wean preterm infants off mechanical ventilation and, more recently, as a primary mode of respiratory support for preterm infants with ...

Tracheal tube airleak in clinical practice and impact on tidal volume measurement in ventilated neonates
Objective: To determine the prevalence, size, and factors affecting tracheal tube (TT) leak in clinical practice and their influence on the displayed tidal volume (Vt) in ventilated newborn infants using uncuffed TTs. Monitoring of Vt is important for implementation of lung-protective ventilation strategies but becomes meaningless in the presence of large TT airleaks. Design: Retrospective clinical study. Setting: Neonatal intensive ... Read more

Relationship between endotracheal tube leakage and under‐reading of tidal volume in neonatal ventilators
AIM: Protective ventilation in neonates requires careful volume monitoring to prevent ventilator‐induced lung injury caused by baro/volutrauma and hence chronic lung disease. This study investigated the effect of endotracheal tube (ET) leakage on the displayed tidal volume using an _in vitro_ model. METHODS: A neonatal lung model was ventilated via a 3 mm ET using three ventilators [Babylog 8000 (BL), ... Read more
