Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) also known as hyaline membrane disease, is a condition of increasing respiratory distress, commencing at, or shortly after, birth and increases in severity until progressive resolution among the survivors, usually between the 2nd and 4th day .It is due at least in part, to insufficiency of pulmonary surfactant and is mainly confined to.

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a serious gastrointestinal problem that mostly affects premature babies. The condition inflames intestinal tissue, causing it to die. A hole (perforation) may form in your baby's intestine. Bacteria can leak into the abdomen (belly) or bloodstream through the hole. NEC usually develops within two to six weeks. risk neonates in NICU.

Screening for GMH-IVH in the NICU. Preterm infants are often unstable during the first days of life, when GMH-IVH typically presents. CUS allows prompt diagnosis of GMH-IVH as well as assessment. Majority of subjects (87%) of group A had normal Doppler USG findings and neonatal admissions to ICU as well as mortality was higher in subjects in group A with abnormal Doppler USG findings than those with normal Doppler findings, i.e. (100% vs. 44%, P<0.01) and (7.7% vs. 3%, P<0.01) • The first 3 months of life (Neonatal stage - birth to 2 weeks, infant state - 2 to 6 weeks of age and pediatric stage - 6 to 12 weeks) may be considered the pediatric period in dogs and cats.

Although the kappa values of CT (0.8544) were found to be higher than USG (0.7874), the difference was not statistically significant. There were 13 cases of early PVL and 6 cases of cystic PVL (Fig. 2-5). USG detected 19 cases of PVL while CT detected only 16. Both CT and USG however detected all the cases of cystic PVL Abstract. Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of the 'angle of progression' (AOP) in the prediction of vaginal delivery and establish a cut-off value. Method: 101 pregnant women were included in this prospective study. They were admitted in labor to our hospital and had singleton cephalic presentations and full-term pregnancies neonatal care for underdeveloped lungs. It is caused by disorganized growth of retinal blood vessels which subsequently leads to scarring and retinal detachment. Both hypoxia and oxygen toxicity contribute to the development of ROP2.

Inguinal hernia repair in infants is a routine surgical procedure. However, numerous issues, including timing of the repair, the need to explore the contralateral groin, use of laparoscopy, and anesthetic approach, remain unsettled. Given the lack of compelling data, consideration should be given to large, prospective, randomized controlled trials to determine best practices for the management.

Neonatal Cerebral Investigation reviews all aspects of the investigation of the neonatal brain, bringing together diagnostic and prognostic information in a highly illustrated and practical text. An introductory section covers the basic principles of ultrasound, EEG, CFM and MR imaging and spectroscopy. These chapters are followed by a detailed. The table on the left lists the differential diagnosis for acute abdomen in the neonate. High obstructions are defined as proximal to the ileum. Low obstructions are defined as occuring in the ileum or colon. Although in high obstruction vomiting will be the most striking symptom, whereas in low obstruction this will be constipation, both. The objective of this study was to determine the incidence of pericardial effusion with cardiac tamponade in preterm infants (NB) of a NICU, with emphasis on the relationship between pericardial effusion and PICC insertion. In addition, we aimed at evaluating the role of bedside ultrasound (USG) in the approach to these cases

Ultrasonography (USG) USG is most useful in the definitive diagnosis of a choledochal cyst, which then requires no further investigations. The recent development of high resolution ultrasound recordings have considerably improved the role of USG in the differentiation of BA from NH (accuracy 80%)(12) All diagnostic algorithms for Neonatal Cholestasis Syndrome (NCS) focus on differentiating numerous medical causes from Biliary Atresia (BA). No preoperative diagnostic algorithm has 100% diagnostic accuracy for BA and yet, timely diagnosis is crucial to optimize surgical outcome. Markers for high index of clinical suspicion for BA are: a usually well thriving infant with conjugated.

Biliary atresia (BA) is a progressive fibrosing obstructive cholangiopathy involving both the extrahepatic and intrahepatic biliary system [].Clinical presentation is characterized by direct or conjugated hyperbilirubinemia, acholic stool, dark urine, variable levels of hepatosplenomegaly and progressive hepatic failure [].If untreated, affected infants develop rapidly progressing fibrosis. Medical ultrasound includes diagnostic imaging techniques, as well as therapeutic applications of ultrasound.In diagnosis, it is used to create an image of internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs.Its aim is usually to find a source of disease or to exclude pathology.The practice of examining pregnant women using ultrasound is called.

Primary iliopsoas abscess is extremely rare in neonates and overlooked easily. It is potentially curable with surgical drainage and broad-spectrum antibiotics if diagnosed early. A 13-day-old neonate was presented with a swelling and bluish discoloration on the left thigh and groin. There was a restriction of movement of the left lower limb, and he developed high grade fever later on, during. NICU admission was also higher among babies from the pathological group (49.5%) as compared to the suspicious (18.4%) and reactive group (4.2%) (p<.0001) (Table 2). The sensitivity and specificity of pathological CTG for NICU admission were 63% and 80.4% respectively (Table 3).

The normal ultrasound appearances of the kidney vary with age. Initially, in the neonatal period, there is almost no medullary fat. The pyramids are visibly prominent and hypoechoic. They span almost the entire cortex. Be cautious not to mistake them in the neonate as prominence of the collecting system. Beyond 1 year old the kidneys take on a. 7. Neonatal cerebral Doppler . The main role of Doppler cranial ultrasound in neonatal practice is for assessment of blood flow velocity in the major cerebral arteries. The anterior cerebral artery is visualised from a sagittal scan, as it winds above the corpus callosum. The Doppler signal is obtained from the most anterior portion of the. This is the first CDC-wide Global MCH Strategy. It aligns with the United States government (USG) global health goals, the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Global Health Strategy (2011-2015), and the CDC Global Health Strategy (2012-2015), all of which support achievement of the MDGs (Table 2) I.B.Smriti Arogya Sadan, Darbhanga has set a benchmark in Neonatal Intensive Care, Laproscopic, USG, ECG, and Pediatric Health Care and is one of India's fastest growing care hospital. With the overriding principle of Beginning with care we are glad to have played a major role in saving thousands of critically ill children The need for a trained cEEG technologist for examination and the expertise for reading limits the use of cEEG in NICU. 5 Newborn infants, including premature babies are vulnerable to brain damage and have a high risk of seizures; therefore cerebral function monitoring should be available in NICU. 6, 7 The emergence of aEEG has provided a.

As a result of practices and technology introduced to the Pristina Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) through USG assistance, the mortality rate of infants born between 1000 and 1499 grams was reduced by 20%. The overall neonatal mortality rate within the NICU decreased from 19.9 per 1000 in 2006 to 18.2 per 1000 in 2007. HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANC An ultrasound is a prenatal test offered to most pregnant women to check your baby's growth and development and to monitor their health. There are different types of ultrasounds you can receive during your pregnancy Publicationdate October 29, 2019. Ultrasound is the preferred modality in neonates with suspected occult spinal dysraphism (OSD). OSD implies the presence of one or more spinal cord anomalies, which can cause tethering of the spinal cord and possible neurological and bladder or bowel function deficits
