Human Milk and Infant Intestinal Microbiome Study

This study will explore the effects of skin-to-skin contact (SSC) between mothers and their babies on the infant intestinal microbiome, the maternal skin microbiome and the breast milk microbiome. This will be accomplished by administering an intervention education session to one group and a placebo education session to the second ...

Phase N/A

Probiotics and Early Microbial Contact in Preterm Neonates

Probiotics are live microbes which, when administered in sufficient amounts, confer a health benefit to the host. According to recent clinical trials, administration of probiotics to very low birth weight infants significantly reduces overall mortality and risk of necrotizing enterocolitis, a devastating inflammatory intestinal disease. The investigators have previously demonstrated ...

Phase N/A

Is it Possible to Extend the Duration of Breastfeeding to the Premature Infant? - a Prospectivt Study

The purpose of this project, which consists of 3 studies, is to investigate whether insufficient protein in breastmilk and / or inadequate intra oral vacuum of the infant can explain early breastfeeding cessation in the premature infant. Furthermore to test whether the breastfeeding period may be extended by oral stimulation. ...

Phase N/A

Human Milk Composition in Indian Mothers

The study is a 5-month prospective observational cohort study. Approximately 258 mother-infant pairs in 33-42 weeks of pregnancy will be recruited. Eligibility assessment will be done for the mother at enrolment and for the mother-infant pair at delivery. Based on the recorded anthropometric data and BMI (kg/m2) calculated based on ...

Phase N/A

Breastfeeding Infants Receiving Respiratory Support Trial

BACKGROUND Breastfeeding infants receiving respiratory support (nCPAP or HHFNC) is a controversial topic. Expert consensus has been that feeding should be delayed until respiratory support (including nCPAP or HHFNC) is no longer needed. Data from animal models suggests that nasal CPAP can affect swallowing behaviour in infant animals but the ...

Phase N/A

The Milk Growth and Microbiota Study

In the U.S., 8% of all births occur between 34 0/7 and 36 6/7 weeks gestation and are regarded as late preterm birth. Compared to term newborns, late preterm newborns have a much higher risk of morbidity and mortality, in part because of difficulty establishing feeding and growth. Breastfeeding optimizes ...

Phase N/A

Effect and Experience of PreHomeCare of Preterm Infants Using Telecommunication and Smartphone Application

Effect and experience of PreHomeCare of preterm infants using telecommunication and Smartphone application: A randomized intervention study. Premature infants and their patents are discharged earlier from hospital and sent home in early in-homecare programs. Effect studies of early in-homecare point towards that premature infants have lower risk of infections under ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Monitoring Information System of Nursing Related Patient Safety and Quality Indicators

Background: Monitoring the patient safety and quality of nursing care is essential to identify patients at risk. Monitoring the nursing-related patient safety and quality indicators are important for high-quality nursing care. However, monitoring nursing-related patient safety and quality indicators through information system is a challenge. The nurses' to date workload ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Increased Parent Presence in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on Parent & Infant Outcomes

Family centered care (FCC) is becoming the standard of care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and many benefits of FCC programs are reported in the literature. However, the integration of FCC practices remains inconsistent in NICUs and many families do not fully access available FCC supports. As a ...

Phase N/A

Pilot Study of the Feasibility of Feeding Preterm Infants With Fresh Versus Frozen Mother's Own Breast Milk in the NICU

Background Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a severe inflammatory disorder of the intestine that primarily affects very low birth weight (<1,500 g)/very preterm infants (32 weeks' gestation); it is also the leading cause of death in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The incidence of NEC (stage 2) in very preterm ...
