  1. no.Baby didn't have UVC
  2. We recently had a newborn referred with hepatic vein thrombosis. Baby had blood and mucoid stools. The total count was high and hence blood c&s sent and commenced with i v antibiotics.symptoms abated. no organism grown in culture. We were hesitant to start LMW heparin because of diverse opinions.But continued with iv antibiotics. Rpt ultrsound showed developing collaterals. What is the probability that the child will /will not have chronic liver disease. Can LMW Heparin melt away the thrombosis? thanks selvan rathinasamy
  3. Ours is a small unit.i have used paracetamol for ductal closure in babies with low platelets. In one neonate with stage 1 a nnec. Used rectal route. We Were able to tide over the crisis .ductal closure achieved and features of ccf subsided.

  10. Request from our state chief neonatologist-going to place orders for 39 ventilators " How good and what's the comparison of turbine / piston based/ pneumatic / venturi based transport ventilators? What brands and technology are you using/ prefer / suggest? Why so? " Your inputs are highly appreciated. Thanks. Dr.selvan

  12. great stefan! i can become a surgeon now! After 25 yrs of practice had on daughter who found out by google search! that her baby has tongue tie and that needs frenotomy!! Baby had laser surgery and it didn't make any improvement on breastfeeding.
  13. In the followup of nicu babies , neurodevelopemental assessment and early intervention have a great role to play in helping the baby. A structured concise and deligent record makes the baby to be indentified early and intervened, KIMS and CDC trivandrum have a produced a blue book as a prototype. i have attached few screenshots to show the contents of the book. You can use the book , or edit and change as per your institutions requirement. You can send a mail to me : selvanr4@yahoo.com i will send the pdf by e mail dr.r.selvan
  14. good thoughtful links thanks
