Variations in Oxygen Saturation Targeting, and Retinopathy of Prematurity Screening and Treatment Criteria in Neonatal Intensive Care Units: An International Survey.
rnational Network for Evaluating Outcomes (iNeo) of Neonates Abstract BACKGROUND: Rates of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and ROP treatment vary between neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Neonatal care practices, including oxygen saturation (SpO2) targets and criteria for the screening and treatment of ROP, are potential contributing factors to the variations. OBJECTIVES: To survey variations in SpO2 targets in 2015 (and whether there had been recent changes) and criteria for ROP screening and treatment across the networks of the International Network for Evaluating Ou...

Perinatal Anemia is Associated with Neonatal and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Infants with Moderate to Severe Perinatal Asphyxia
Conclusions: Perinatal anemia causing moderate to severe perinatal asphyxia is associated with a higher risk for neonatal mortality. All survivors with perinatal anemia, however, showed a normal NDO in contrast to children who were born asphyxiated due to other causes. The underlying pathophysiological mechanism for the favorable NDO in the perinatal anemia group needs further elucidation.Neonatology 2018;114:315 –322 (Source: Neonatology)

Biomarker Discovery by Mass Spectrometry in Cerebrospinal Fluid and Plasma after Global Hypoxia-Ischemia in Newborn Piglets.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Biomarkers may qualify diagnosis, treatment allocation, and prognostication in neonatal encephalopathy. Biomarker development is challenged by competing etiologies, inter-individual genetic variability, and a lack of specific neonatal markers. To address these challenges, we used a standardized neonatal hypoxic-ischemic (HI) encephalopathy model with pre- and post-HI sampling of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma. OBJECTIVES: The study aimed to identify novel candidate protein biomarkers of HI encephalopathy in a newborn piglet model in CSF and plasma. METHODS: FiO2 was lowered to ...

Perinatal Anemia is Associated with Neonatal and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Infants with Moderate to Severe Perinatal Asphyxia.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Perinatal anemia may cause perinatal asphyxia. Its pathophysiology and neurodevelopmental effects are theoretically different from other causes of perinatal asphyxia. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to determine whether perinatal anemia results in different short-term and long-term outcomes than other causes of perinatal asphyxia treated with therapeutic hypothermia. METHODS: We retrospectively included infants with moderate to severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, born between May 2009 and October 2015. During follow-up, we assessed cognitive and motor development at 2-3 years of age, ...

Effect of a Low-Dose/High-Frequency Training on Real-Life Neonatal Resuscitation in a Low-Resource Setting
Conclusions: In a low- income setting, a low-dose/high-frequency training after participation in an adapted NRP course contributed to improving the initiation and times of some procedures. However, many aspects of neonatal resuscitation remained poor.

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of a low-dose/high-frequency neonatal resuscitation training on clinical practice of midwives in a low-resource setting.
