HYPOTHESIS: Early prophylactic inhalation of Budesonide reduces the absolute risk of developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) or death in preterm infants born <28 weeks gestational age (GA) by 10%. PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: To determine whether inhalation of Budesonide within 12 hours of life improves survival without BPD at 36 weeks GA in infants born between 23 and 27 weeks GA. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: To determine whether prophylactic ... Read More

Study will verify ability of infant Hydration Monitor (IHM) to assess changes of hydration status in newborns and infants by means of ultrasound velocity measurements through muscle tissues. Changes of tissue hydration will be followed during first days of life in newborns and in acute diarrhea in small children during re-hydration therapy. Weighting and clinical dehydration symptoms will be used as controls. Read More

Breast milk is best food for neonates and preterm infants. However many handling would be done if direct breastfeeding is not feasible, and it may result in nutrients change in human milk. We investigate the influence of storage in different containers and different thawing or heating methods on human milk nutrients. Read More

The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics (PK) of dexmedetomidine (DEX) at 3 different dose levels in infants, ages ≥28 weeks to ≤44 weeks gestational age, administered as a loading dose followed by a continuous infusion for a minimum of 6 hours and up to 24 hours in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), cardiac intensive care unit (CICU), or pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

It is well known that traffic accidents are one of the major reasons for death in childhood. Unfortunately scientific and statistical data usually comes from developed countries. In this study, the investigators will try to evaluate Turkish families' knowledge on Child Passenger Safety, observe how they carry their babies in the car and investigated the reasons behind the undesired behaviors.

Neonates treated on Neonatal Intensive Care Units are often critically ill, subject to numerous painful procedures and often dependent on mechanical ventilation. Mechanical ventilation as well as painful conditions require a sufficient analgesia and or an accurately regulated sedation. Newborns incapable of self-report are therefore dependent on the assessment of the infants level of pain and sedation by the treating team. The aim of this prospective, ... Read More

The aim of this study is to collect data on the early visual development of extreme premature infants. The method is the measurement of flash visual evoked potentials and the study population includes premature infants under the 28th weeks of gestation, who have normal cranial ultrasound examinations, normal aEEG, no clinical neurological symptoms and who have a normal ophthalmological status. fVEP measurements were recorded from the first week of life ...

Phototherapy is almost (beside exchange transfusion) the unique treatment for hyperbilirubinemia of the newborn. Its efficacy to decrease bilirubin level (because the light interacts with bilirubin at the skin level to transform it in water soluble products eliminated in urine and stools without liver metabolism) relies on the irradiance dispensed at the skin level by the device (in the 430-490nm range) and on the exposed surface of the baby. In the past ... Read More

Antibiotic resistance is a major public health issue as multiresistant bacteria (MRB) are increasing. Among the actions to control resistance, one is an interesting lead: to prevent the emergence of resistant bacteria by limiting possibilities for bacteria to acquire resistance. Mechanisms of resistance genes acquisition are deeply studied but there are few data on the dynamic of acquisition over time. Among the genetic components that disseminate resistance ... Read More

NIDCAP based developmental care is a method of looking after preterm infants that is guided by the infant's behavioural cues, and that actively involves parents in the care of their infant. There is limited evidence that outcomes for infants are improved if they receive NIDCAP based care. This study evaluates the effects of introducing NIDCAP based care to a level III neonatal intensive care unit, in the post - surfactant era, and also evaluates its effects ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to study how people make decisions regarding delivery room management for infants born extremely premature when survival and long term outcomes are uncertain. The hypothesis is that the way in which information is presented will impact decisions. There have been many advances in neonatal care in recent decades. However, the investigators do not know if these children will grow up to be healthy or if they will have problems with ... Read More

The aim of the study is to compare the intubation conditions among propofol and remifentanil versus midazolam and remifentanil in premature neonates with respiratory distress syndrome. At the same time, to show the group of drugs that could let the neonates with no residual sedation after the use of surfactant (the possibility of the premature neonates to be readily extubated after the use of surfactant).
