Extensive bruising and resuscitation


Recommended Posts

We have been looking at factors which need to be taken into consideration when resuscitating extreme preterms. One which is mentioned regularly is extensive or excessive bruising. Despite a literature search we have been unable to find any supporting evidence to support this although we have all experienced these babies having a poor outcome in practice. Does anyone know of any such research or any papers that discuss how to 'grade' the bruising etc?

Thanks in advance
