Happy thanksgiving everybody! 🦃
We hope that our listeners in the United States enjoyed their holiday and Daphna and I are ourselves thankful for the continued support of our community.
This week Daphna and I had the chance to review some very interesting articles. The topics were broad and included timing of TPN initiation and the effects this decision may have on survival to discharge and comorbidities. We discussed variations in pulse oximetry accuracy and how a patient's skin color could affect pulse oximetry reading. We also reviewed a paper looking at how monitoring heart rate characteristics during a neonate's hospitalization can predict outcomes at 18-22 months of age. We also touched on neonatologist mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, and thyroid studies in preterm babies. These articles were a lot of fun to review. Article titles and links are pasted below for your convenience. Enjoy.
