Actigraphy and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome


Brief description of study

The aim of our study is to analyse the correlation between actigraphy and Lipsitz scoring system in neonatal opioid abstinence syndrome.

Detailed Study Description

Neonatal opioid abstinence syndrome occurs after birth when opioids were used by the mother during pregnancy.

Many scoring systems, like Lipsitz scoring system, are used to diagnose and manage neonatal abstinence syndrome but they are subjective. The majority of items in these scores are motor skills items.

Actigraphy allows to measure objectively the newborn motricity. We will analyse the correlation between actigraphy and Lipsitz scoring system in four groups of newborns.
