  • Deep suctioning prolongs hospital stay of babies with bronchiolitis
    Deep suctioning and less frequent suctioning were linked to longer hospital stays for babies with bronchiolitis, according to a study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. The more invasive suctioning may worsen bronchial swelling and mucus sloughing compared with a noninvasive nasal suctioning, the study author said.

  • Timing of weight faltering during infancy affects later growth
    Children with weight faltering before age 2 months started gaining weight more quickly from 2 months old until 2 years old and then gained at about the same rate as typically developing children. Infants who fell behind in weight between 2 and 9 months old steadily gained weight throughout childhood and caught up to their typically developing peers between 7 and 10 years old, according to the study in Pediatrics.

  • C-section deliveries vary widely across U.S. hospitals
    A study in the journal Health Affairs found a wide range in the rates of cesarean deliveries in 593 U.S. hospitals, from 7.1% of births to 69.9%. For lower-risk pregnancies, the rates varied from 2.4% to 36.5%. "Vast differences in practice patterns" are a likely factor in the variation, because hospital type, size and location did not explain the differences, a researcher said.

  • Newborn screening improves diagnosis of CAH
    Data from congenital adrenal hyperplasia cases in Sweden between 1910 and 2011 showed substantial spikes in diagnosed cases following the introduction of the first effective therapy in 1950 and newborn screening in 1986. Despite the previous belief that boys are more prone to delayed CAH diagnosis than girls, researchers said that the universal screening of newborns improved survival in both sexes equally. The findings appear in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology. HealthDay News (2/26) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Many women experience postpartum anxiety, study shows
    Anxiety after giving birth was more common in mothers than postpartum depression, particularly among first-time mothers and those who had cesarean sections, a study in the journal Pediatrics showed. Researchers noted that this type of anxiety was associated with shorter breast-feeding time as well as use of unplanned health care within the initial two weeks following childbirth.
