Severe apnea and bradycardia in a term infant


Walker, J H; Arlettaz, R; Däster, C (2014). Severe apnea and bradycardia in a term infant. Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne: Swiss Society of Neonatology.

Abstract

Case report : This male infant was born at 39 4/7 weeks of gestation to a 24-year-old G1/P1 following an uncomplicated pregnancy. During labor, when signs of fetal distress were noted on the CTG and the amniotic fluid became meconium-stained, it was decided to accelerate delivery by vacuum extraction. Apgar scores were 7, 8, and 10 after 1, 5, and 10 minutes, respectively, and the arterial cord blood pH was 7.34. Physical examination was unremarkable apart from a parieto-occipital vacuum extraction mark. Birth weight was 3060 g, head circumference 34 cm and length 50 cm (all 10th to 25th percentile). The infant was brought to the maternity ward with his mother.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
