  10. aEEG is more simple in interpretation than EEG,became popular for cerebral function monitor in HIE . Here is a link for aEEG:http://www.neoweb.org.uk/CFM/CFM6000+manual.pdf NOTE NEUROLOGY MODULE is very good learning place on line learning for aEEG AND its role in neonatal HIE after perinatal asphyxia.continous cerebralfunction monitoring- aEEG after birth with h/o birthasphyxia helps to identify abnormal cerebral function in borderline case and early inclusion in selection for therapeutic hypothermia dinesh i

  17. Have you followed ABG while weaning?I feel that with 30% fio2 PIP/PEEP 12/4 is not appropriate and if ABG was o.k. while weaning with this setting then its a time to extubate and put on CPAP .Hypoventilation may be one of the reason for IVH,pul hemmorhage.treatment is increase peep, appropriate pip to maintain adequate ventilation(PCO2 45-50 mm of hg) and supportive care,maintain good circulating function, transfusion cautionary, FFP & vit K if PT/APT prolong .Treat PDA conservatively , restriction of fluid intake 120-130//kg maintained urin output 1-3 ml /kg ,minimum ET suction .Ibuprofen is contraindicated with Bleeding.

  18. We do cover baby trolly with clingfilm and give phototherapy from both side of warmer. we keep warmer on with close watch for hypo /hyperthermia. This is working with AC on. Dinesh
  19. It looks like pleomorphic maculopapular rash - chicken pox in the picture
  20. Wr use disosible spo2 probe. We also change the probe site every4-6 hrly depending the maturity of newborn infant.
  21. In VLBW Infant and infant with H/O unfavorable fetal Doppler study , we consider more than 50%of previous feed is significant at the next feed and witheld that feed and reassess clinically. If there is no distention of abdomen, we returne the residual back ,And Don't give feed at that time and reassess before next feed. If thete is distended abdoman we discard the aspirate, make NBM for a day or two and reassess,if vitals are stable restart feedings Dinesh
  22. Dear friends , I do agree with Stefan.for effective CPAP cooperation of baby is must.we use pacifier routinely in large baby ,some time a single dose of sedative will help .we use phenobarbitone 5 mg/kg once only.before that we ruled out hypoxemia and hypercarbia as well as over/under distention of lung by x-ray chest ,optimum CPAP help in reducing agitaton of infant.
