A set of maternal and obstetric risk factors readily available at birth predicts a greater than 100-fold variation in the incidence of nonhemolytic neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, according to a large population-based study published online November 9 in Pediatrics.

Women treated for sub-clinical hypothyroidism in pregnancy with levothyroxine (LT4) were less likely to have infants with low birth weight or low Apgar scores compared with untreated peers, according to a large retrospective study.

This prospective cross-sectional study included pregnant women between 34 and 38+6 weeks gestation. The diagnostic accuracy of MPA Doppler measurements (systolic/diastolic (S/D) ratio, peak systolic velocity (PSV), pulsatility index (PI), resistance index (RI) and acceleration time/ejection time (At/Et)) for diagnosis of neonatal RDS was tested.

Newborns with neonatal urinary tract infections demonstrated a significantly elevated risk for allergic rhinitis during childhood, according to study results.

Early genetic testing of babies with suspected neonatal diabetes identifies the underlying cause in more than 80% of cases, say researchers.

In neonatology wards, health care-associated methicillin-susceptible clonal staphylococcus aureus transmission appears to lead more frequently to colonization than infection, according to researchers from Switzerland.

A systematic review of the safety and efficacy of high-flow nasal cannula therapy on preterm infants revealed that the treatment is equally safe and effective as other methods of non-invasive ventilation.

Exposure to psychotropic drugs during pregnancy increases risk for negative outcomes among infants, so much so that researchers recommend the population be considered high-risk.
