    Sagori Mukhopadhyay, Matthew Bryan, Miren B Dhudasia, William Quarshie, Jeffrey S Gerber, Robert W Grundmeier, Corinna Koebnick, Margo A Sidell, Darios Getahun, Andrea J Sharma, Michael W Spiller, Stephanie J Schrag, Karen Marie Puopolo

    Retrospective study of a large cohort of term babies followed up for 5 years. Just under a fifth (17%) of these babies were exposed to antibiotics given to the mother for GBS prophylaxis and these had elevated weight gain in the first 5 yrs.

    Juan Arnaez, Cristina Vega-Del-Val, Montesclaros Hortigüela, Isabel Benavente-Fernández, Miriam Martínez-Biarge, Carlos Ochoa Sangrador, Alfredo Garcia-Alix IC-HIE Study Group

    This manuscript assesses the use of video recordings in a prospective cohort of babies with HIE compared to the neurological assessments by the on site attending physician. There were some discrepancies, especially in babies with mild HIE, but the data support the use of telemedicine to assess HIE severity.

    Can EEG accurately predict 2-year neurodevelopmental outcome for preterm infants?
    Rhodri O Lloyd, John M O'Toole, Vicki Livingstone, Peter M Filan, Geraldine B Boylan

    Prospective single centre study of the use of EEG (at 3 gestational ages 72 hours after birth, 32 and 35 weeks corrected) to predict outcome in 57 preterm infants. the study suggest that EEG at 35 weeks is a predictor of outcome at 2years.

    Aneurin Young, Lisa K Brown, Sarah Ennis, R Mark Beattie, Mark John Johnson

    This systematic review identified 22 eligible trials and confirmed that the proportion of total body water at birth falls with increasing gestational age, from 90% at 26 weeks’ gestation to 74% at term.

    Thermal management with and without servo-controlled system in preterm infants immediately after birth: a multicentre, randomised controlled study
    Francesco Cavallin, Nicoletta Doglioni, Alessandra Allodi, Nadia Battajon, Stefania Vedovato, Letizia Capasso, Eloisa Gitto, Nicola Laforgia, Giulia Paviotti, Maria Grazia Capretti, Camilla Gizzi, Paolo Ernesto Villani, Paolo Biban, Simone Pratesi, Gianluca Lista, Fabrizio Ciralli, Massimo Soffiati, Alex Staffler, Eugenio Baraldi, Daniele Trevisanuto on behalf of Servo COntrol for PReterm Infants (SCOPRI) Trial Group

    This multicentre double blind RCT of 450 preterm infants evaluated the effectiveness of a thermal servo-controlled system in the delivery room. There was no important difference in rates of normothermia but the servo-controlled system was associated with increased mild hypothermia.
