    Background: Babies born before 28 weeks' gestation have lower plasma thyroid hormone concentrations than more mature infants. This may contribute to their risk of poor developmental outcome. Previous studies have suggested that thyroxine supplementation for extremely preterm neonates may be...

    In very low birth weight (VLBW) infants, colloid infusion is associated with impaired perinatal lung function and increased oxygen dependency duration. The aim of this study was to determine whether perinatal colloid infusion was associated with abnormal neurodevelopmental outcome. All perinatal...

    Objectives: To determine if chronic oxygen dependency (discharge home on supplemental oxygen) in children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD; defined as requirement for supplemental O2 at 36 weeks postmenstrual age) predicts neurodevelopmental disability rates and growth outcomes at 36 months...

    Background: Infants born at extreme prematurity (below 28 weeks' gestation) are at high risk of developmental disability. A major risk factor for disability is having a low level of thyroid hormone which is recognised to be a frequent phenomenon in these infants. At present it is unclear whether...

    Background-It has previously been shown that, in preterm babies, routine sodium supplementation from 24 hours after birth is associated with increased risk of oxygen dependency and persistent expansion of the extracellular compartment. Objective-To explore whether this is mediated by a delayed...
