Because of sepsis, many of these infants require antibiotics like vancomycin during ECMO treatment. ECMO transiently alters renal function and increases the circulating blood volume by 75%. Initial vancomycin pharmacokinetics were determined i...

Studies on five year old asphyxiated (non-ECMO treated) children have shown a correlation of the amplitude and latency of visual evoked potentials (VHP) with neonatal condition. No study of VEPs has been done on school age survivors of neonatal veno...
