  • Wash. looks into bump in cases of a rare birth defect
    Washington state health officials have launched an inquiry into an uptick in incidences of babies born in Yakina County last year with a rare and fatal birth defect. The defect, which occurs when the brain doesn't develop normally in the first month of pregnancy, usually could be expected to affect one out of the about 4,000 annual births in the county. Eight cases were reported last year. The Seattle Times/The Associated Press (1/30) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Postpartum hemorrhage doesn't pose greater pregnancy risks
    Women who experienced heavy bleeding during their first childbirth were no more likely to suffer from a miscarriage and other pregnancy complications in the future, a study in the journal BJOG found. About 18% of those who had a history of postpartum hemorrhage bled heavily during their second childbirth, compared with 7% of women who didn't have heavy bleeding during their first childbirth.

  • Daily antiseptic bathing reduces bacteremia in PICUs
    Patients at pediatric intensive care units who received daily chlorhexidine gluconate baths had significantly lower incidence of bacteremia than patients in the standard bathing protocol group, according to a study in The Lancet. The incidence of skin reactions associated with the antiseptic bathing was 1.2 per 1,000 days, and researchers reported no serious adverse events. News (1/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Stretching, pillows may improve infant head deformities
    Stretching exercises and special bedding pillows improved the condition of babies with moderate to severe head deformities, German researchers reported in the Journal of Pediatrics. However, it remains uncertain how effective these interventions are because the study lacked a control group, an expert said. Reuters (1/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
