Conclusions: In vivo exposure to remifentanil exerts a beneficial effect against excitotoxicity on the developing mouse brain, which is associated with a reduction in the size of ibotenate-induced brain lesion as well as prevention of some behavioral deficits in young mice. The long-term effect of neonatal exposure to remifentanil should be investigated. Introduction The potential neurotoxicity of anesthetics in the perinatal period prompted the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to release a drug safety communication warning in 2016 that stated, “repeated or lengthy use of general anesthetics or sedation ...

While the friend or family member may mean well and simply be trying to show optimism, he or she is often isolating the deep pain the mother may be going through. As part of my research on maternal health, I came across the photography and advocacy project Exposing the Silence: Documenting Birth Trauma and the Strength of Women across America.

Objective: To determine whether soft tissue mobilization (STM) will reduce chronic pain and improve impaired function and mobility resulting from cesarean section (C-section) surgery. Study Design: Multicenter randomized clinical trial. Background: More than 1.27 million C-sections are performed annually in the United States. Of these, 6% to 18% will result in significant chronic pain. Methods and Measures: In total, 28 subjects reporting chronic pain following C-section underwent 4 treatment sessions. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of 2 groups. Group 1 received superficial abdomen and lumbothoracic mass...

Conclusions: Findings from our experimental model suggest that the offspring of dams exposed to ozone during implantation had reduced growth compared with controls, possibly as a consequence of ozone-induced vascular dysfunction. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP2019 Received: 10 April 2017 Revised: 7 November 2017 Accepted: 13 November 2017 Published: 21 December 2017 Address correspondence to C.N.

This study comprised newborns delivered at our institute between 2003 and 2013. All 46 birth fractures were reviewed and compared with 223 randomly selected normal neonates. Demographic data of newborns and their mothers, as well as the details of delivery and fracture characteristics, were recorded. Univariate and multiple logistic regression analyses were applied to differentiate the risk factors.ResultsForty-six babies had birth fractures, and 223 babies were without fracture. Forty-five cases were midclavicular fractures and one was a humeral-shaft fracture. Babies with a fracture had significantly higher birthweight a...
