Doctors often monitor infants especially closely if they have a higher risk of severe infections, such as premature infants or infants with a congenital heart defect.
Conclusion Diminished premorbid lung function may predispose prematurely born infants to severe viral LRTIs in infancy.

The more premature the infant, the greater likelihood of RDS. RDS is due to insufficient surfactant in the lungs.

Our understanding of the management of diseases in the premature infant has changed dramatically in recent years, and it can be quite difficult to remain up-to-date on changes
In premature infants, due to the immaturity of their cerebral vascular bed, these mechanisms might be impaired exposing their brain to damage.
The immaturity of the premature infant’s brain makes it inherently more vulnerable to injury. The more premature an infant, the greater the likelihood of brain damage.
Antenatal fetal cyst decompression successfully reversed the polyhydramnios and prevented premature delivery, resulting in a full-term healthy infant delivered vaginally at
She went into premature labor and a cesarean section was performed because of a cord presentation. Both mother and infant had an uneventful recovery.
In many of these cases, premature delivery of an immature infant results in the death of the fetus.
Here, we present a case of pulmonary interstitial glycogenosis associated with trisomy 21, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and congenital heart disease in a 34 week premature
Seven premature infants with hypozincemia and transient symptomatic zinc deficiency have been previously described.
[…] developing in such infants in the months following premature birth should raise the suspicion of zinc deficiency.
Premature infants have a negative zinc balance mainly secondary to inadequate stores and high requirements.
These differences between premature and full-term infants persisted throughout the next 6 months in those infants born prior to 30 weeks gestation, and in those infants born
The article discusses the different types of apnea seen in premature infants, how these drugs affect premature infants, how to recognize early signs of toxicity, and implications
Apnea of prematurity is defined as cessation of breathing by a premature infant that lasts for more than 20 seconds and/or is accompanied by hypoxia or bradycardia.
We report the first premature infant with Down syndrome whose duodenal atresia presented with a massive hematemesis secondary to duodenitis.
Methods A 33 week premature infant with a prenatal diagnosis of Duodenal atresia was explored laparoscopically on day two of life for repair.
However, the hospital stay is often longer for premature infants.

Skin and mucous membranes are broken down easily in the premature infant.
Finally, neutrophil reserves are easily depleted because of the diminished response of the bone marrow, especially in the premature infant.
However, the infection can spread antepartum and intrapartum from mother to child and can cause abortion, stillbirth, premature birth, or early infant death.
Maternal infection with Listeria can result in chorioamnionitis, premature labor, spontaneous abortion, or stillbirth.
Vertical transmission can also occur from mother to infant via passage through an infected birth canal or ascending infection through ruptured amniotic membranes. [12, 13]
