The common source of infection is an intravenous catheter, which is required for most VLBW
The most common diagnosis was attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, which affected 17% of VLBW
children and 8% of controls, Dr.
6 mL of whole blood in our routine laboratory, respectively) far exceeds the acceptable standard for daily screening in VLBW
infants, the mortality rates were observed to range between 10% and 60% according to the developmental level of countries (18,19).
Several studies reported that mothers of VLBW
infants were at risk for experiencing psychological distress and depression following the child's birth (2,3,4,5).
It has the advantage over other risk measures in that it can be used to estimate the population VLBW
or MLBW burden that could be attributed to the risk factor.
3%) in the study group composed of VLBW
05 [micro[mol/L in those with VLBW
or normal birth weight, respectively, and 0.
Overall, the VLBW
children had a lower mean IQ, compared with normal children (a mean IQ score of 92.
28) Numerous factors are implicated in the development of CP in VLBW
The study population consisted of 450 maternal surveys for fetal deaths, 779 singletons for VLBW
cases, 799 singleton MLBW controls, and 800 singleton controls for mothers having NBW infants, a total of 2,828 surveys.
We illustrate the use of three tree-based methods: bagging, RFC, and a single classification tree, as well as parametric logistic regression in an analysis that evaluates the effect of physical and occupational therapy services on motor performance among preschool children who are VLBW
and "at risk" for developmental coordination disorder (DCD).
