IJERPH, Vol. 17, Pages 705: Neonatal Transport in the Practice of the Crews of the Polish Medical Air Rescue: A Retrospective Analysis International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph17030705 Authors: Rzońca Świeżewski Gałązkowski Bień Kosowski Leszczyński Rzońca The aim of the study was to present characteristics of patients transported in incubators by crews of Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) of the Polish Medical Air Rescue as well as the character of their missions. The study was based on the method of retrospective analysis of neonatal transports with the use of transport incubators by the crews of HEMS and EMS of the Polish Medical Air Rescue. The study covered 436 medical and rescue transports of premature babies and full-term newborns in the period between January 2012 and December 2018. The study group consisted mainly of male patients (55.05%) who, on the basis of the date of delivery, were qualified as full-term newborns (54.59%). During the transport their average age was 37.53 (standard deviation, SD 43.53) days, and their average body weight was 3121.18 (SD 802.64) grams. A vast majority of neonatal transports were provided with the use of a plane (84.63%), and these were medical transports (79.36%). The average transport time was 49.92 (SD 27.70) minutes with the average distance of 304.27 km (SD 93.05). Significant differences between prematu...
This study highlights the potential benefit of using iPSCs to repair damaged lung tissue through possible modulation of the inflammatory response, leading to novel therapies for acute hyperoxia-induced lung injury and the prevention of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. PMID: 32051754 [PubMed]
CONCLUSION: Coarctation stenting can be carried out safely in small children. Usually, the stent has to be removed or redilated later. Results are encouraging. PMID: 32056092 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Introduction: Over the last few years, in the development of neonatology, the limits to which it is possible to sustain the lives of premature babies have been extended, and thus the proportion of survivors with chronic morbidities has increased. Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), all of which deeply influence the quality of life, life expectancy and social integration, are the most significant morbidities among premature newborns. Aim: Description of psychomotor development of low birth weight (
ConclusionThe senior clinical role of the neonatal nurse practitioner continues to evolve. There are challenges to be overcome, however there are now more than thirty neonatal nurse practitioners in Australia and together the possibilities for expansion of their role are limitless. This can only be of benefit to our babies, their families and the nursing profession.
A study of almost 12,000 women found that taking 81 milligrams of aspirin a day - a quarter of a 300mg pill - from the sixth week of pregnancy to the 36th lowered the danger by 11 per cent.
This study captured the attention of the lay press that subsequently reported the commitment to active management at the University of Iowa and highlighted the case of a healthy outcome of an infant born at 22 weeks of gestation at that center (Belluck P. Premature babies may survive at 22 weeks if treated, study finds.
