  1. Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    Diaphragmatic disease usually manifests as elevation at chest radiography. Functional imaging with fluoroscopy (or ultrasonography or magnetic resonance imaging) is a simple and effective method of diagnosing diaphragmatic dysfunction, which can be classified as paralysis, weakness, or eventration. Diaphragmatic paralysis is indicated by absence of orthograde excursion on quiet and deep breathing, with paradoxical motion on sniffing. Diaphragmatic weakness is indicated by reduced or delayed orthograde excursion on deep breathing, with or without paradoxical motion on sniffing. Eventration is congenital thinning of a segment of diaphragmatic muscle and manifests as focal weakness. see the video E51_DC1_Movie4.mp4

  3. Feeding stable infant with right-sided CDH

    I think this isveventration of the diaphragm and not diaphragmatic hernia There is no problem to start feeding as we can see all the gut below the diaphragm If you are not going to operate now and patient RR is showing tachypnea start with OGT according feeding protocols regarding his weight If he is tolerating this eventration and not tachypnic start oral feeding if his wt> 1.5 kg and increase gradually Dig for the history as it may be traumatic delivery Check his moro reflex nicely to r/o Erb's

  7. IVH

    @bimalc One of my friends in Minnesota i discussed this issue with her they are starting with 80 ml/kg and checking of sodium ,uop and adjust ivf accordingly so not all in US starting with 100 ml/kg And i am in favour of restricted intake initially and adiustement according UOP ,Na and Urea More fluids more IVH PDA and pulmonary hge So the most important is follow up and adjust accordingly allowing for physiological wt loss in the first 5 days

  9. IVH

    IVH and ELBW It is really a bad experience having a 600 gms baby with IVH grade 3 or 4 What is your best practice to minimize the risk of IVH? Management of hypotension and risk of IVH Intubation and IVH who should intubate it is not always the most expert will be there Delayed cord clamping really we should not miss its benifits Painful procedures and IVH is it helpful to give morphine before any painul and irritant procedure like suctioning PDA and IVH should i give prophylactic endomethacin in first few hours of life
