Abstract

The transport of 114 newborn less than 24 hours old carried out in 1972 and 1973 by the Paris SAMU (Professor M. CARA'S Unit) is studied. (he delay of arrival of the medical team is on the average one hour, the child arrives in the Resuscitation center approximately two and a quarter hours after the call. In 15 cases an umbilical catheter was put in place; in 27 cases the child was intubated, artificial ventilation was carried out during transport. On arrival, from the mean values, the temperature was 25.2 degrees, the pH 7.28, the pO2 112, the blood sugar 1.53 g.Three practical conclusions must be drawn: reserve high risk deliveries for specialized centers, when the degree of emergency compells delivery in a badly equipped center, contact the SAMU from the beginning of labour, render the actions carried out by the transporting doctor even more rigorous and controled, which implies an organized SMUR which is well equipped and trained.

COVID-19

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.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
