Bibliographie Annexes Rapport disponible en format pdf ci-dessous Rapport infographique disponible ci-dessous Prevention, treatment and prognosis of RDS Respiratory distress syndrome, RDS, is a multifactorial lung disease of premature infants. The main cause of RDS is a deficiency of pulmonary surfactant, a lipoprotein mixture required to reduce surface tension at the air-liquid interface and to prevent generalized atelectasis of the alveolar ducts and alveoli. Prematurity is the most important factor predisposing to RDS. During the past decade the number of multiple pregnancies has increased significantly as a result of diversified infertility treatments and advanced maternal age. Due to the considerably higher rate of preterm births of multiples compared to singletons, RDS is one of the major causes of morbidity among them. The objectives of the present research were to evaluate the incidence and risk factors of RDS in twins compared to singletons, and to assess the role of SP-A and SP-B gene variations and gene-environment interactions in the susceptibility to the disease in a population of preterm twins and higher order multiples.
Tellagami Welcome to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence OMM | Observatoire sur la migration de mineurs developmental delay.htm What is Developmental Delay? Developmental delay is a term used to describe a baby or young child who is slower than expected in achieving the normal developmental milestones. This may affect gross and fine motor skills, speech and language skills, cognitive skills and/or social skills. A child diagnosed with global developmental delay will have delays in all their areas of development. All babies and children develop at different rates and in their own time. In some children, developmental delay is suspected soon after birth because of feeding difficulties or unusual muscle tone. Children with developmental delay may present with some of the following difficulties: Appears very floppy Muscles appear very tight, legs held stiff with little or no movement Problems holding head upright Unable to roll over by 6 months Unable to sit on the floor without support by 8 months Unable to crawl by 12 months Unable to walk independently by 18 months (back to top)

Growth and Failure to Thrive Synonym: weight faltering Failure to thrive (FTT) is defined as a significant interruption in the expected rate of growth compared with other children of similar age and sex during early childhood. It is a term that tends to be applied to young children, especially babies rather than older children or teenagers. FTT is a descriptive term or cause for concern. It is not a disease and an underlying cause must be considered. This definition of FTT does not specify being below the 2nd, 5th or 10th centile, as this would, by definition, include 2%, 5% or 10% of all babies, whether there was a problem or not. The World Health Organization (WHO) has proposed growth standards, based on healthy, relatively affluent, breast-fed infants from six countries. FTT, or weight faltering, is a description of a relatively common growth pattern. Repeated measurements of height and weight showing changes of centiles on charts are much more important than a single measurement. Look at the baby: Paediatrician
