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

    Author : Elisabeth Norman; Lund Pediatrik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

  4. 4. Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy : Diagnosis, hypothermia treatment and outcome

    Author : Boubou Hallberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Hypothermia treatment (HT) is now proven to be neuroprotective, is associated with favourable outcomes, and is considered as the standard of care for moderate to severe hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). The treatment should be regionalized with a minimum of ten treated infants per year with regard to securing patient safety, staff training, development and future research. READ MORE
