  1. 1. Promoting health in premature infants : with special focus on skin-to-skin contact and development of valid pain assesment

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Emma Olsson; Mats Eriksson; Agneta Anderzén-Carlsson; Gunilla Ahlsén; Carina Sparud Lundin; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Near-infrared spectroscopy; Neonatal intensive care; Pain assessment; Premature infant; Skin-to-skin contact;

    Abstract : Premature infants are at greater risk for both short- and long-term negative outcomes than infants born at full term. Premature infants have an immature nervous system and are not developmentally prepared to process the often excessive stimuli and frequent painful procedures of intensive care. READ MORE

  2. 2. When the baby is premature experiences of parenthood and getting support via videoconferencing

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Birgitta Lindberg; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nursing; Omvårdnad;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this doctoral thesis was to describe parents' experiences of having an infant born prematurely and experiences on the use of real-time videoconferencing in providing support to parents of preterm born infants at home. A descriptive qualitative method was chosen to achieve the overall goal of this thesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Initiation of ventilation, surfactant treatment, and lung function after preterm birth

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Lars Björklund; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Respiration; Artificial; Pediatrics; Pediatri; Respiratory Function Tests; Pulmonary Surfactants; Newborn; Respiratory Distress Syndrome; Infant; Premature; Animals;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates lung function and the effects of rescue surfactant treatment in mechanically ventilated preterm human infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), and the effects of ventilation at birth on the response to surfactant supplementation in preterm lambs. To assess lung function, the author recorded static pressure-volume (P-V) curves during passive deflation from total lung capacity (TLC) to ambient pressure and measured end-expiratory lung volume (FRC) during mechanical ventilation by tracer gas washout.

  4. 4. Non-nutritive sucking in the neonate

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Maria Hafström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Numerical-Analysis-Computer-Assisted; Non-nutritive sucking. Sucking behaviour; Infant; Newborn; Premature; Development; Disease-Susceptibility; Follow-up; Meperidine;

    Abstract : Non-nutritive sucking (NNS) by the newborn infant is a fundamental behaviour and is one of the first coordinated muscular activities in the foetus. A new specially designed computer-based method for automatic analysis of the NNS pattern in neonates has been produced. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
