    Low superior vena cava (SVC) flow has been associated with intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH) in very preterm infants. We studied the diagnostic value of a single measurement of SVC flow within the first 24 h of life in very preterm infants and its association with occurrence or extension of IVH...

    Objective: To determine if indomethacin given to preterm infants with a large ductus arteriosus (DA) in the first hours of life results in maintained or improved brain and upper body blood (superior vena cava (SVC)) flow. Study design: A randomised, double blind trial of indomethacin v placebo....

    Objective To determine if timing of cord clamping affects blood fl ow in the upper body, as measured by fl ow in the superior vena cava (SVC). Design Observational study.

    The first 24 hours of a preterm infant's life is often a period of cardiovascular instability. A complex relationship exists between the heart, brain and systemic and cerebral vasculature and in the immediate neonatal period in which low blood pressure, low systemic blood flow and low cerebral...

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the accuracy of blood pressure (BP), capillary refill time (CRT), and central-peripheral temperature difference (CPTd) for detecting low upper body blood flow in the first day after birth. METHODS: A prospective, two centre cohort study of 128 infants born at < 30 weeks...

    Background: Superior vena cava (SVC) flow assesses blood flow from the upper body, and may provide a reliable assessment of systemic blood flow. Aim: (i) To assess the relationship between SVC flow in first 24 h and adverse outcome in very low birthweight (VLBW) infants (ii) To assess...
