Abstract:Table of Contents Summary: This study demonstrates that infants with NEC have significantly lower cerebral oxygenation which may contribute to the worse neurodevelopmental outcome in these infants. What is already known on this topic: Near infra-red spectroscopy (NIRS) can non-invasively monitor regional oxygenation in preterm infants. Low cerebral oxygenation during the first week of life is associated with poor neurodevelopmental outcomes and Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is an independent risk factor for …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
