How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Objectives To calculate 95% reference ranges for heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, temperature and blood pressure for well late preterm newborns between 34+0/7 and 36+6/7 weeks of gestation during typical neonatal behaviour. Approach A single site, prospective cohort study in a major Australian quaternary hospital between February an...
Background Newborns have their vital signs measured as part of routine care. However, there is inconsistency in accepted physiological ranges for well newborns beyond the post-delivery stabilisation period which has implications for the identification of illness. Objective To explore differences in physiological vital signs between three gestation...
Context: The birth process and the moments thereafter are a crucial time for newborns as they adapt to extra uterine life. The adaptive process begins immediately and can take a number of days to complete. The process involves initiating and maintaining respirations, thermoregulation, and the change from foetal circulation to newborn circulation....
All newborns are at risk of deterioration as a result of failing to make the transition to extra uterine life. Signs of deterioration can be subtle and easily missed. It has been postulated that the use of an Early Warning Tool may assist clinicians in recognising and responding to signs of deterioration earlier in neonates, thereby preventing a se...
What is known about this topic • Early warning tools for the detection of deterioration are commonly used in adult and paediatric clinical settings. There is a paucity of research for use in newborns in maternity and neonatal settings. What this paper adds • The effectiveness of early warning tools in adult and paediatric population groups are mixe...
Background: All newborns are potentially at risk of deterioration as a result of failing to make the transition to extrauterine life. Clinicians in busy maternity and neonatal settings may not identify subtle early signs of deterioration. It has been postulated that the use of early warning tools (EWTs) would better assist clinicians in identifying...
