Intrauterine Growth Restriction Synonyms: IUGR, fetal growth restriction, FGR Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is a condition where a baby's growth slows or ceases when it is in the uterus. It is part of a wider group - small for gestational age (SGA) fetuses - which includes fetuses that have failed to achieve their growth potential and fetuses that are constitutionally small. Approximately 50-70% of fetuses with a birth weight below the tenth centile for gestational age are constitutionally small. The lower the centile for defining SGA, the greater the likelihood of IUGR. On the other hand, a fetus with growth restriction may not be SGA.[1]

Job options Jobs directly related to your degree include: Honing Your R Skills for Job Interviews My time as a grad student will soon draw to a close. With this comes the terrifying realisation that I'm going to start applying for jobs and, hopefully, interviewing soon, forever leaving my comfortable security blanket of academia. With that horrible thought in mind, I've been doing some poking around to see what various kinds of technical interviews are like. Apparently, it is not entirely uncommon in such interviews to ask for solutions to little toy programming problems. These are viewed as a way of weeding out the hoi polloi, and as a way of determining how you approach a novel problem under stress.

Postnatal Care (Puerperium) oPatientPlus articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines. They are designed for health professionals to use, so you may find the language more technical than the condition leaflets. The puerperium covers the 6-week period following birth, during which time the various changes that occurred during pregnancy revert to the non-pregnant state. Physiological changes during this time include: The cardiovascular system reverts to normal during the first 2 weeks.

Neonatal Jaundice Jaundice is clinically detectable in the newborn when the serum bilirubin levels are greater than 85 ╬╝mol/L. This occurs in approximately 60% of term infants and 80% of preterm infants. Hyperbilirubinaemia is either unconjugated (which is potentially toxic but may be physiological or pathological) or conjugated (not toxic but always pathological). Without treatment, high levels of unconjugated bilirubin may lead to kernicterus. Approximately 60% of term and 80% of preterm babies develop jaundice in the first week of life, and about 10% of breast-fed babies are still jaundiced at 1 month of age.[1]
