  1. 1. Effects of Delayed versus Early Cord Clamping on Healthy Term Infants

    Author : Ola Andersson; Lena Hellström-Westas; Magnus Domellöf; Heike Rabe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; active management; birth; breast feeding; cord clamping; ferritin; growth; haemoglobin; human infant; infections; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; morbidity; neurodevelopment; randomised controlled trial; umbilical cord; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study maternal and infant effects of delayed cord clamping (≥180 seconds, DCC) compared to early (≤10 seconds, ECC) in a randomised controlled trial. Practice and guidelines regarding when to clamp the cord vary globally, and different meta-analyses have shown contradictory conclusions on benefits and disadvantages of DCC and ECC. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pitfalls in Interpreting Umbilical Cord Blood Gases and Lactate at Birth

    Author : Parisa Mokarami; Urogynekologi och reproduktionsfarmakologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood gases; metabolic acidosis; umbilical cord; round-off; delayed sampling; validation;

    Abstract : Acid-base status in umbilical cord blood is an objective measure of the fetus’ exposure to and ability to handle hypoxia. The objective of this thesis was to clarify some of the methodological pitfalls in interpreting umbilical cord blood gases and lactate values at birth. READ MORE

  3. 3. Acid-base values in umbilical cord blood at birth

    Author : Nana Wiberg; Urogynekologi och reproduktionsfarmakologi; []
    Keywords : Apgar score; Acidosis; Base deficit; Blood gases; Gestational age; Hidden acidosis; lactate; Umbilical cord blood;

    Abstract : Umbilical cord blood acid-base status at birth gives an objective evaluation of the fetal exposure and response to hypoxia during labor. The objective of this thesis was to elucidate methodological issues associated with interpretation of cord blood gases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring the heterogeneity of the hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell pool in cord blood

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a curative treatment for a wide range of malignant and hereditary disorders. It is yet the only clinically established stem cell treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ultrasound as predictor of perinatal outcome

    Author : Gisela Ghosh; gynekologisk och prenatal ultraljudsdiagnostik Obstetrisk; []

    Abstract : The aim of the work described in this thesis was to evaluate the value of ultrasound examinations of the amniotic fluid, umbilical cord and blood flow velocity waveform of the fetal and placental vessels as predictors of the perinatal outcome. In the first study, the amniotic fluid index (AFI) measured on admission to the labour ward was evaluated in low-risk pregnancies. READ MORE
