    Hypotension in neonates, particularly preterm, is a matter of debate in all its aspects (definition, monitoring and treatment).The neonate is uniquely at risk of hypotension and low systemic blood flow states due to failure or delay in the normal transition of circulatory processes.While...

    Sufficient organ blood flow of healthy newborn babies is maintained by relatively low systemic blood pressure. Premature infants are at an increased risk of systemic hypotension, often but not obviously, resulting in hypoperfusion of the cerebral, renal and intestinal vascular beds. Maintaining...

    Objective:Dopamine administration results in variable effects on blood pressure in hypotensive preterm infants. The clinical benefits of dopamine administration in increasing cerebral blood flow (CBF) and reducing adverse neurological outcomes in hypotensive preterm neonates are unclear. The...

    Background: Hypotensive neonates who have been treated with dopamine have poorer neurodevelopmental outcome than those who have not been treated with dopamine. We speculate that dopamine stimulates adrenoceptors on cerebral arteries causing cerebral vasoconstriction. This vasoconstriction might...

    OBJECTIVE: We have previously demonstrated that dopamine induces selective renal vasodilation without affecting cerebral and mesenteric blood flow in ≤32 weeks' gestation normotensive preterm infants during the first postnatal day. In the present study, we have examined whether...

    Hypotension is a common problem in neonates with complex underlying pathophysiology. Although treatment of low blood pressure is common, clinicians must use all available information to target neonates with compromised perfusion. Pharmacotherapy should be tailored to the specific physiologic...

    Context Previous studies have correlated poor neurological outcomes with hypotension. Treatment of hypotension in very low birthweight (VLBW) infants is common, and most often is based solely on the blood pressure measurement. Whether treatment improves cerebral oxygenation is unclear. Objective...

    Dopamine is widely used to maintain blood pressure in very preterm infants, but it may affect neurovascular regulation as it crosses the immature blood–brain barrier. We contrasted the relationship between cerebral perfusion and oxygen metabolism in preterm infants treated with dopamine...

    The catecholamine dopamine is a precursors in the biosynthesis of norepinephrine and epinephrine as well as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Besides of its well known role of brain neurotransmitter, dopamine exerts specific functions at the periphery, being those at the level of...
