Cutting cord too early puts babies at risk, NHS warned | Society Childbirth experts are urging the NHS to reverse the policy it has pursued since the 1960s of clamping and cutting a baby's umbilical cord as soon as it is born, citing mounting evidence that this may leave newborn babies deprived of vital blood from the placenta. Medical bodies, senior doctors and the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) want maternity staff to stop routinely clamping the cord within seconds of the baby's arrival and instead leave it untouched for anything from 30 seconds to whenever it stops pulsating naturally, usually within two to five minutes. They believe that infants may be at risk of becoming anaemic by being denied the chance to receive as much as a third of their blood volume from the placenta through the cord. Anaemia can later be associated with brain development and can affect cognitive ability. NICE is now reviewing its cord-clamping guidance, which it originally published in 2007.

squatting and murmur - Waterfox hi njwwj,i think ur initial statement is incorrect... b/c Squatting actually DECREASES the systolic murmur of BOTH MVP and HCM.(squatting wont increase HCM murmurs as outflow obstruction decreases...Read on...)With regards to what happens in Squatting...Yes it Increases Afterload(increases vascular resistance)but mainly, Yes it Increases Preload (more venous return), [will not decrease preload!!!] from here on, my reply is it may help those who always gets confused with such questions... The quick way to remember, (n this is how i do it when faced with a timed exam question)....For cases of MVP Murmur & its changes with various activites...I always ask myself.." The murmur of MVP (& HCM) is 1) ACCENTUATED(Accentuated for MVP means=Earlier systolic click and Longer murmur)by Decreasing Preload; eg. by standing or valsalva maneuver The mech by which this occurs in MVP is...both valsalva maneuver and standing Decrease Venous Return to the heart thereby Decreasing Preload. Summary...

Mother sings praises of delayed clamping of umbilical cord | Society Denise Roche vividly recalls the worrying colour her son Callum was when he was born in 2006 after a 43-hour labour. "He was fully alert but looked pretty blue and it was a good while before his hands and feet began looking pinky and normal," she says. Happily, when her daughter, Millie, arrived in 2008, "she looked a lot better when she came out – very, very pink", the way parents want their newborns to be. When Callum underwent Apgar tests, which assesses physical and mental function one and five minutes after birth, he scored just five out of 10. While both were uncomplicated births, Roche's experience with Callum encouraged her to look into the pros and cons of immediate as opposed to delayed cord-clamping. She adds: "I remember staff showing me the placenta while Millie was still attached to me, resting on my tummy, and saying: 'Are you happy that we clamp it now?'. "For me, the key issue was tissue oxygenation, making sure their brain cells are properly oxygenated.

Relevant initiatives Today, we are a group of motivated individuals and organizations who have the ambition to break down pregnancy taboos and build an infrastructure where experts, medical professionals, academics, companies, NGOs, and patients can come together to share their knowledge and experiences, effectively bringing this issue to the forefront of healthcare priorities. Having been involved with TEDxBrussels since its inception five years ago, we are frequently inspired by the impact that new thinking – and new collaborations between passionate people – can have on old problems. And it is precisely with a new way of thinking and collaboration that we will bridge the data deficit gap. Currently, we are discussing with key stakeholder and experts to build a coalition dedicated to breaking pregnancy taboos. Our advisory board is crucial in helping us decide the project’s next steps.

Methods of linking mothers and infants using health plan data for studies of pregnancy outcomes. Research on medication safety in pregnancy often utilizes health plan and birth certificate records. This study discusses methods used to link mothers with infants, a crucial step in such research.We describe how eight sites participating in the Medication Exposure in Pregnancy Risk Evaluation Program created linkages between deliveries, infants and birth certificates for the 2001-2007 birth cohorts. We describe linkage rates across sites, and for two sites, we compare the characteristics of populations linked using different methods.Of 299,260 deliveries, 256,563 (86%; range by site, 74-99%) could be linked to infants using a deterministic algorithm. At two sites, using birth certificate data to augment mother-infant linkage increased the representation of mothers who were Hispanic or non-White, younger, Medicaid recipients, or had low educational level.
