This phenomenological study explores the lived experience of the nurse’s touch in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Touch is deeply embedded within NICU nursing, sometimes so taken-for-granted as to seem invisible, but implied in nearly every nursing gesture and pursuit. Inserting an...
Hemodynamic Changes During High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation in Newborn Piglets with Respiratory Distress SyndromeDownload
Respiratory failure is common in critically ill neonates, with refractory cases often needing high frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV). Volume guarantee mode has been added to some HFOV ventilators for theoretical better maintenance of normocapnia. There is little information on the systemic...
Dramatic maturational changes occur in heart energy metabolism in the fetal to newborn transition, most predominantly marked by a decrease in glycolysis and an increase in fatty acid oxidation which then becomes the major energy providing substrate for the heart after birth. However, in the...
