  2. 2. Premedication for intubation in newborn infants; pain assessment, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics

    University dissertation from Division of Paediatrics, Department of clinical Sciences, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Elisabeth Norman; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Premedication; pain; premature; newborn; aEEG; randomized controlled trial; thiopental; morphine; remifentanil; rapid sequence induction; ibntubation; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics;

    Abstract : Preterm infants undergo intensive care during a vulnerable period with hemodynamic instability and a rapidly developing and immature CNS. Adequate pain management is essential, since pain experience might lead to acute physiological reactions as well as neurological and neuropsychological sequels. READ MORE

  3. 3. The EEG of the Newborn Brain - Detection of Hypoxia and Prediction of Outcome

    University dissertation from Division of Paediatrics, Department of clinical Sciences, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Nils Löfgren; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; telemedicine; neonatal; prediction; infraslow EEG; cerebral; entropy; asphyxia; EEG; VLFA; hypoxia; Kolmogorov complexity; qEEG; detection; spectral estimation; newborn;

    Abstract : Brain function requires a continuous flow of oxygen and an insufficient supply (hypoxia) for a few minutes during the first period of life may have severe consequences; consequences which might impact both the life of the individual who has been struck and his or her family. Therefore, there is a need to find a method which can enable the detection of an insufficient oxygen supply at an early stage, before brain damage becomes permanent. READ MORE

  4. 4. Perinatal brain injury - markers and mediators. Non-protein-bound iron and pro-inflammatory cytokines in newborn infants and neonatal pigs

    University dissertation from Division of Paediatrics, Department of clinical Sciences, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Karin Sävman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Asphyxia; hypoxia; posthemorrhagic ventricular dilatation; preterm; newborn; perinatal; brain; cerebrospinal fluid; cytokines; IL-1ß; IL-6; IL-8; TNF-a; non-protein-bound-iron;

    Abstract : Two groups of newborn infants have an increased risk for perinatal brain injury; preterm infants and term infants subjected to birth asphyxia. Experimental studies indicate that hypoxic-ischemic insults in the perinatal period initiate a secondary neurotoxic cascade including formation of toxic reactive oxygen species as well as an inflammatory response with elevated levels of potentially neurotoxic cytokines.

  5. 5. Neutrophil Chemotaxis and Respiratory Burst in Term and Preterm Newborn Infants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Stålhammar; Richard Sindelar; Jens Schollin; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; innate immunity; neutrophil; term newborn infants; preterm newborn infants; chemotaxis; respiratory burst; reactive oxygen species; cell surface receptor; IL-8; bacterial N-formyl peptide;

    Abstract : Neutrophil activation is the most important initial immune defense against invading microbes in newborn infants. The reduced neutrophil migration and uncontrolled regulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production observed in neonates, could result in a diminished infectious response or in tissue damage.
