  1. I don't have a good experience with needle thoracocentesis especially in ventilated babies
  2. This is very important to disseminate. We experienced 2 cases of cavernomas; my question is would you be for systematic hepatic echography when taking off UVC?
  3. When no pulmonary hypertension sildenafil is useless Meta-analyses support the association between Ureaplasma spp. infection and the development of long-term lung disease in preterm infants hence, the use of antibiotics such as azithromycin, erythromycin, and other macrolides in clinical practice.102,103 Macrolide antibiotics also have immunomodulatory properties, suppressing lung inflammation.104 In clinical trials, intubated infants receiving erythromycin did not have reduced risk of BPD.105 Treatment with azithromycin, a newer macrolide, has shown promise in a meta-analysis demonstrating reduction in BPD and BPD/death in preterm infants when given prophylactically.106 Clarithromycin treatment was also associated with lower incidence of BPD in premature infants with a BW between 750 to 1250 g in an RCT.107 Studies combining use of all macrolides in Ureaplasma-colonized ventilated preterm infants did not show reduction in BPD or the composite outcome of BPD/death, and routine use of the macrolides for the prevention of BPD is not recommended.https://dx.doi.org/10.1177%2F1179556518817322
  4. For me, definitely this baby must be closely observed and basic lab tests are essentials;
  5. Our Caffeine is the same, IV and oral; ours is from alpha laboratory
  6. If parents are not well prepared for the dangerous situation, I prefer to follow transport and get help from the arrival unit team if I already prepared the parents and they know how dangerous is the situation, I stop all, get back to my original departure cause usually it is our hospital and explain everything.
  7. This is not common; in 5 years just saw 2 cases; effectively good response to diazoxide
  8. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29579758

      Sorry the mother 


  10. Very interesting application
  11. The first study I did many years ago with one of my students was a trial to replace apgar score cause I was Always convinced it is not adapted to prematures. At the end of the study, I found some interesting elements to measure but it didn't make up a score ! You gave me ideas; why not combine some variables from my study to some from the NRAS score to create a new clinical score. The NRAS is not purely clinical like Apgar but very interesting.
