Peds Conditions Barry

2 factors cause intraventricular hemorrhage: 1. Loss of cerebral autoregulation 2. Abrupt alterations in cerebral blood flow and pressures
When is the highest occurrence of intraventricular hemorrhage? Highest occurrence in first 72 hours of life.
Increased incidence of intraventricular hemorrhage in what population? Incidence up in infants < 32 weeks gestation and with birth weight < 1500 grams.
To prevent intraventricular hemorrhage, avoid conditions that: -Interfere with autoregulation (hypocarbia, hypercarbia,hypoxia, acidosis) -Overwhelm autoregulation abilities (Hypertension) -Contribute to rapid fluctuations of cerebral blood flow or pressure
Primary cause of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS): Primary Cause: surfactant deficiency secondary to immature type II alveolar cells in the preterm lung.
When does surfactant appear, when is it mature? Surfactant appears in amniotic fluid 28-32 weeks and mature levels by 34-35 weeks.
What can cause earlier release of surfactant? Maternally administered steroids.
Tell me the story of what happens after hypoxia in the infant (RDS)? Increase work of breathing-> hypercarbia-> pulmonary arterial vasoconstriction->R to L shunting and ischemic injury to cells producing surfactant.

Treatment for RDS: -Supplemental Oxygen for target -PaO2 of 55 – 70 mm Hg -CPAP up to 10 cmH2O -Mechanical ventilation -Avoid oxygen toxicity and pulmonary barotrauma -Artificial surfactant
PDA = Failed closure or reopening after functional closure. What happens? -Left to right shunt occurs and may be asymptomatic or result in CHF and failure to thrive if large -If PVR remains high the R to L shunt results in hypoxemia -Obligatory PDA occurs in 10% of infants with CHD
