    Abstract : The purposes of the thesis were to study associations between size at birth, short adult stature and risks of subnormal intellectual performance, high blood pressure, and overweight among males, and to study associations between size at birth, short adult stature and risk of overweight and giving birth to small for gestational age (SGA) infants among females.The effect of short adult stature on intellectual performance among males was analyzed in two population-based cohort studies.

  4. 4. Neuropsychological consequences at young adult age after cardio-pulmonary resuscitation at birth or being born small-for-gestational age

    Author : Gerd Viggedal; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; perinatal asphyxia; cardio-pulmonary resuscitation; small-for-gestational age; term infants; young adult; non-disabled; follow-up; cognitive functions; visual attention; auditory attention; education;

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis was to investigate whether infants resuscitated at birth because of presumed birth asphyxia or born small-for-gestational age without evidence of neurodevelopmental deviations in early childhood, may express cognitive deficits in adulthood when the demands of cognitive and social adaptation increase. Methods: A long-term follow-up was carried out in a group of young adults (n=70), 19-28 years of age, born at Sahlgrens Hospital, Göteborg between 1969 and 1978, requiring cardio-pulmonary resuscitation at birth with a mild or moderate clinical course or born small-for-gestational age (SGA).

Patients and methods: Two different cohorts were studied. In paper I, 25 young adult men born small for gestational age (SGA) were compared to 44 young adult men born appropriate for gestational age (AGA). READ MORE
