Diurnal variation in the quality and outcome of newborn intensive care

The Journal of Pediatrics
J E TysonG Gill


Variables related to both the process and the outcome of neonatal intensive care were studied to compare care given during the day (0901-2100 hours) with that at night (2101-0900 hours). At night, intravenous infiltrations occurred more often, and the tidal volume of respirator-treated infants was verified less often. Blood pH values less than 7.20, excluding values within 12 hours of admission, were recorded more often and in more patients at night. During a 12-month period, there were significantly more deaths among infants less than 1,500 gm during the night than during the day. The deterioration of infants at night may result in part from current nursery staffing practices.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
