  • Olympic Cool-Cap System Eligibility Criteria

    The Olympic Cool-Cap System is indicated for use in full-term infants with clinical evidence of moderate to severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)*. The Cool-Cap System provides selective head cooling with mild systemic hypothermia to prevent or reduce the severity of neurologic injury associated with HIE.Cool-Cap-indication-for-use-card

  • The Cool-Cap Clinical Trial – Dr. Kaiser

    Interview with an Investigator: Jeffrey R. Kaiser, MD, MA Associate Professor of Pediatrics Neonatology Section Arkansas Children’s Hospital Brain cooling for neurological protection had been studied with animal models for years, but this was the first major clinical trial with human babies.Dr-Kaiser

  • Case Study on 3D Echo Atrial Septal Defect

    A 16 year old male with a history of heart murmur, is presented with shortness of breath, swelling of limps and fatigue. Some form of septal defects were suspected. A transthoracic echocardiography was carried out on Philips iE33 ultrasound system, using the x5-1 transducer. A series of 2D and 3D imaging were performed, and datasets were […]

  • Elastography provides a display overlay of stiffness information over a grayscale image

    Patient 50 year-old, female, felt a lump in the neck. An ultrasound thyroid study was ordered. 2D ultrasound showed a big complex mass on the right lobe of thyroid, measuring 36mm x 28mm. Thyroid-Elastography

  • Interview with an Investigator: John D. Barks, MD Associate Professor of Pediatrics Director Neonatal-Perinatal Research

    The treatment involves cooling the infant’s brain for 72 hours with a water-circulating cap, while maintaining the body temperature only three degrees below normal. Barks commented that “In pediatrics andwe are trained that cold is bad for babies, so this idea of directly cooling the brain, instead of the entire body, sounded right.” Dr-Barks

  • Noninvasive Measurement of Total Serum Bilirubin in a Multiracial Predischarge Newborn Population to Assess the Risk of Severe Hyperbilirubinemia

    Jaundice in near-term and term newborns is a frequent diagnosis that may prompt hospital readmission in the first postnatal week. Hyperbilirubinemia, when excessive, can lead to potentially irreversible bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity. Noninvasive-Measurement-of-Total-Serum-Bilirubin-in-a-Multiracial-Predischarge-Newborn-Population-to-Assess-the-Risk-of-Severe-Hyperbilirubinemia

  • Transcutaneous Bilirubin Measurements and Serum Total Bilirubin Levels in Indigenous African Infants

    The objective of this study was to determine whether transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) measurements correlate with serum total bilirubin (STB) levels in indigenous, darkly pigmented African newborns with varying degrees of skin pigmentation, some of which had developed kernicterus.Transcutaneous-Bilirubin-Measurements-and-Serum-Total-Bilirubin-Levels-in-Indigenous-African-Infants

  • Transcutaneous Measurement of Bilirubin in Newborns: Comparison with an Automated Jendrassik-Grof Procedure and HPLC

    Measurement of bilirubin in sera of newborn infants is one of the most frequently performed laboratory tests in this patient population. Chemical methods for measurement of bilirubin are the standard of care in the assessment of neonatal jaundice.Transcutaneous-Measurement-of-Bilirubin-in-Newborns-borns-Comparison-with-Automated-Jendrassik-Grof-Method-and-HPLC

  • Case Study: Early Intervention for Sarnat II HIE June 25, 2009 Gazi University, Ankara Turkey

    A mother with a non-complicated pregnancy arrived in the hospital. After she began to have regular contractions, external fetal monitoring was started. The fetal heart monitor revealed an increased fetal heart rate with intermittent variable decelerations. An emergent cesarean section was performed. The mother gave birth to a male delivered at 38 3/7 weeks gestational […]
