Cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) have a soft tissue flipper that encases most of the forelimb, and elongated digits with an increased number of phalanges (hyperphalangy). In addition, some cetaceans exhibit a reduction in digit number.…

The management of a pregnant woman presenting with prolonged hypertonic uterine contractions (essential uterine hypertonus) and mildly elevated temperature at term is described. Histology of the placenta, cord and membranes, following delivery,…

From 1972 to 1990, 69 cases of gastroschisis were treated at Akron Children's Hospital Medical Center. Eighty-one percent of these patients underwent primary closure of their abdominal wall defect. Thirteen of 69 patients (19%) required Silastic…

A patient with neonatal glycine encephalopathy who had severe neurologic retardation, spasticity, and seizures died at 17 years of age. Glycine concentration was markedly elevated in brain tissue, especially in the cerebellum. Neuropathologic study…

Studies of gene expression from bone, cartilage, and other tissues are complicated by the fact that their RNA, collected and pooled for analysis, often represents a wide variety of composite cells distinct in individual phenotype, age, and state of…

OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that beta-adrenoceptor stimulation of fetal lung fluid absorption in near-term guinea pig fetuses involves bumetanide-sensitive ion transport. STUDY DESIGN: Fetuses were obtained from…

Age-related hearing loss (AHL) is a multifactorial disorder characterized by a decline in peripheral and central auditory function. Here, we examined synaptic transmission in DBA/2 mice, which carry the AHL8 gene, at the identifiable glutamatergic…

Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are the most common, and potentially most severe, of infections treated by health care practitioners. Lower RTIs along with influenza, are the most common cause of death by infection in the United States. Risk…

Two models of infant incubators were studied to determine the strength of the magnetic field generated by the heater and fan motors. Measurements were taken at intervals along the center line of the incubator. The results show that fields greater…

Gene expression of osteopontin (OPN) has been investigated in mice by application of laser capture microdissection (LCM) and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis. LCM permits individual cells to be isolated ("captured")…

To study early events of neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis and its sequelae, the authors induced a controlled infection in the brains of mice using HSVgH, a genetically modified Disabled Infective Single Cycle virus. Neonatal Balb/C…

Objectives: Electronic trigger detection tools hold promise to reduce Adverse drug event (ADEs) through efficiencies of scale and real-time reporting. We hypothesized that such a tool could automatically detect medication dosing errors as well as…

PURPOSE: We investigate the accuracy of urine volumes obtained by an automated bladder scan in complex neonatal cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Automated bladder scan determinations of urine volumes were obtained by neonatal intensive care unit nursing…

This is a case of a 3-week-old male who presented to the emergency department with intermittent apnea and cyanosis. While in the emergency department, he had respiratory compromise with stress and required intubation. Further evaluation confirmed the…

BACKGROUND: Craniosynostosis is an uncommon complication after shunting procedures for congenital hydrocephalus. We report a case of a child with myelomeningocele and normocephaly at the time of birth. She underwent ventricular shunting for Chiari…

A noninvasive temporal artery thermometer that uses arterial heat balance technology has been compared to rectal and ear thermometry and is available in the marketplace. This study was undertaken to establish mean temperatures and temperatures 2…

Failure to attend the first newborn health supervision visit is an important problem for the Continuity Care Clinic of Children's Hospital Medical Center of Akron, Ohio. The goal of this study was to use objective data from the neonatal record to…
