  1. An interested ENT specialist does ours within 1-2 days. As for the criterias for intervention we tend to go with: A subjective assessment of tounge tie-degree + continued feeding difficulties (even after midwife has observed and given breast feeding technique advice) and/or maternal painful nipples and/or poor weight gain. Honestly I think of it as mostly trial and error based on the factors above. We don´t use a scoring system. Those of you who do - does it help you in your decision and is this Hazelbaker scoring tool validated?

    Don’t let the cord gas fool you

    Brilliant! Thank you. The blood gas at age 1 hour gives you a better picture.

    Oral Dextrose supplementation

    @Stefan Johansson Yes, now the Freestyle Pro.

    Oral Dextrose supplementation

    On the OT: The same here... To reduce pain we changed several years ago from heel lancing using a stationary meter to the mobile Freestyle Lite blood glucose meter. After that we had to deal with, and treat a lot more "hypoglycemias". After changing to another model of Freestyle we now see less hypoglycemias.

    Oral Dextrose supplementation

    @Stefan Johansson Not yet a protocol on it... Did I understand you correctly - you mean milk/formula given by nasogastric tube driven by a "food pump" 24h a day? Because that´s what we are doing :-) Usually when the baby is admitted we try starting with normal bolus feeding but if the baby´s having difficulties in tolerating the given amount we switch to food infusion Sometimes they don´t tolerate 150ml/kg, sometimes they tolerate 220ml/kg or more. We set it to continous infusion (over 24h) and increase it until glucose levels are under control.

    Oral Dextrose supplementation

    Stefan: We do that as well. We have no study on it but since roughly 2 years ago our need for intravenous infusion has dropped. After discussion with ALB hospital we learned that they are successful in preventing i.v. treatment when giving a supplement of oral Duocal (brand name - carbohydrates/fat) to breast milk.
  13. Table2: Do you interpret the results that the use of intravenous infusion and bolus was not affected by the gel-intervention (p>0,05) but when it comes to admittance to NICU for hypoglycemia there was a benefit (p 0,03)? Anyone who has more information on this?
  14. This is very interesting! Results of the study? Sorry, missed the link

    Irregular iris/pupil?

    Ectropion uvae according to the ophtalmologist. If you image-search the web for this I don´t think I find something that is spot on the appearance of my patients but I trust the opthalmologist...
