    Irregular iris/pupil?

    Thanks for the pictures! I’ve seen the bottom picture before and that is the only picture of ”ectropion uveae” that looks similar to my findings, although a very mild variant. Mostly it looks like the upper pictures although not that extreme and not extending radially outwards onto the iris but only inwards, into the pupil.

    Irregular iris/pupil?

    Bumping this one... a very benign condition but for those interested Had antoher patient with these findings and I did som more digging on the topic.... It looks like it could be "Iris Flocculus/flocculi" I teamed up with the opthalmologist today to see that they would see what I saw and she did. They usually call it "epithelial cyst of the iris" and if it´s only on the margin of the pupil they dont check it further. If it´s bigger (like this one covering a third of the caudal part of the pupil) they have follow up checks. There are two Pictures showing iris flocculi in the link below In Figure 2 - A and B http://www.google.se/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiKs4mUj5_fAhWjAxAIHVV5BB0Q5TV6BAgBEAs&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.apjo.org%2FApjo%2FdownPDF%2Fid%2F462.html&psig=AOvVaw2CHiN8-FCSrDAlRPpuCl_R&ust=1544869834309802 I also found an old article from 1998 where they describe the phenomenon "Flocculus neonatorum" - a self resolving benign nodular flocculus of the Iris in the newborn. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/000992289803700509?journalCode=cpja and they estimate it to be as common as 1 out of 30 newborns so I´m surprised that so few examiners recognise these findings Finally I can sleep peacefully
  3. 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.
  15. 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?
