Project Description:

Investigating the time and risk factors for IVH in preterm neonates my field of interests are the preterm neonates with intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). IVH is a frequent complication of prematurity with a pooled estimates of 34.3% for GA < 28 weeks and associated with adverse neurodevelopmental outcome and mortality. In clinical setting the exact onset of IVH is unknown, most of the cases IVH occur within the first three days of life. There are several perinatal and postnatal risk factors known to increase IVH. Temporality between IVH and its antecedents is lacking. Risk factors for IVH varies by timing of bleed. I aim to predict the onset of IVH, identify their antecedence, apply preventive measurements, and implement interventions (Physiological-based cord clamping at delivery room stabilization). Our candidate risk factor can be neonatal low systemic blood flow at birth, chorioamnionitis.
