  • Original research
    Monitoring of carbon dioxide in ventilated neonates: a prospective observational study
    Tobias Werther, Lukas Aichhorn, Sina Stellberg, Francesco Stefano Cardona, Katrin Klebermass-Schrehof, Angelika Berger, Georg M Schmölzer, Michael Wagner

    This study comparing the precision and accuracy of end-tidal and transcutaneous pCO2 with arterial measurements found that end-tidal CO2, measured through a double-lumen ET tube in ventilated neonates, was superior to tcpCO2.

  • Original research
    Temporal trends in respiratory care and bronchopulmonary dysplasia in very preterm infants over a 10-year period in Spain
    Alejandro Avila-Alvarez, Carlos Zozaya, Sonia Pértega-Diaz, Manuel Sanchez-Luna, Martin Iriondo-Sanz, Maria Dolores Elorza, Fermín García-Muñoz Rodrigo Spanish Neonatal Network SEN1500

    National survey of changes in respiratory outcomes of VLBW infants over 2 periods, showing that outcome did not improve despite an increase in the use of non-invasive ventilation.

    Oesophageal atresia: sonographic signs may prenatally predict surgical complexity
    Tal Weissbach, Anya Kushnir, Ella Haber Kaptsenel, Leah Leibovitch, Ron Bilik, Daniel Shinhar, Gideon Karplus, Reuven Achiron, Zvi Kivilevitch, Eran Barzilay, Shali Mazaki Tovi, Boaz Weisz, Eran Kassif

    This manuscript characterizes prenatal ultrasound findings of babies with esophageal atresia with the presence or absence of a distal fistula. The authors found several ultrasound parameters were correlated with more complex repair and absence of a distal fistula

  • Original research
    Direct swallowing training and oral sensorimotor stimulation in preterm infants: a randomised controlled trial
    Ju Sun Heo, Ee-Kyung Kim, Sae Yun Kim, In Gyu Song, Young Mi Yoon, Hannah Cho, Eun Sun Lee, Seung Han Shin, Byung-Mo Oh, Hyung-Ik Shin, Han-Suk Kim

    This single centre, masked RCT enrolling 186 infants <32 weeks gestation found that direct swallowing training combined with oral sensorimotor stimulation significantly shortened the time to independent oral feeding compared with no intervention.

  • Original research
    Growth in extremely preterm children born in England in 1995 and 2006: the EPICure studies
    Yanyan Ni, Rebecca Lancaster, Emmi Suonpera, Marialivia Bernardi, Amanda Fahy, Jennifer Larsen, Jayne Trickett, John R Hurst, Dieter Wolke, Samantha Johnson, Neil Marlow

    This paper describes the growth to age 11 of a sample of the EPICure 2 2006 preterm birth cohort, compared to healthy same age controls and to the 1995 EPICure cohort. Since 1995, childhood growth in weight, height and BMI have improved for births <26 weeks of gestation, but there was no improvement in head growth.

  • Original research
    Titres and neutralising capacity of SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies in human milk: a systematic review
    Jia Ming Low, Yue Wey Low, Youjia Zhong, Cheuk Yiu Charlotte Lee, Ming Chan, Nicholas Beng Hui Ng, Zubair Amin, Yvonne Peng Mei Ng

    Systematic review on the titers and neutralising capacity of SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies in human milk demonstrates that these antibodies can neutralise the virus in vitro. Furthermore, high pressure, but not Holder pasteurisation deactivates the specific IgAs.

    Safe emergency neonatal airway management: current challenges and potential approaches
    Joyce E O'Shea, Alexandra Scrivens, Gemma Edwards, Charles Christoph Roehr

    This review describes the challenges encountered with neonatal intubation, particularly in relation to training and achieving competency. It discusses strategies to optimise intubation success and examines the airway adjuncts currently available to manage the neonatal airway.
