Milena Siciliano Nascimento, Celso Moura Rebello, Luciana Assis Pires Andrade Vale, Érica Santos, Cristiane do Prado

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082017AO3913

ABSTRACT Objective To assess whether the spontaneous breathing test can predict the extubation failure in pediatric population. Methods A prospective and observational study that evaluated data of inpatients at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit between May 2011 and August 2013, receiving mechanical ventilation for at least 24 hours followed by extubation. The patients were classified in two groups: Test Group, with patients extubated after spontaneous breathing test, and Control Group, with patients extubated without spontaneous breathing test. Results A total […]

A multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial of a new porcine surfactant in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome

Celso Moura Rebello, Alexander Roberto Precioso, Renata Suman Mascaretti

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082014AO3095

ObjectiveTo compare the efficacy and safety of a new porcine-derived pulmonary surfactant developed by Instituto Butantan with those of animal-derived surfactants commercially available in Brazil, regarding neonatal mortality and the major complications of prematurity in preterm newborns with birth weight up to 1500g and diagnosed with respiratory distress syndrome.MethodsNeonates diagnosed with respiratory distress syndrome were randomized to receive either Butantan surfactant (Butantan group) or one of the following surfactants: Survanta® or Curosurf®. Newborns receiving Survanta® or Curosurf® comprised the control […]

Influence of assessment site in measuring transcutaneous bilirubin

Cristiane Maria da Conceição, Maria Fernanda Pellegrino da Silva Dornaus, Maria Aparecida Portella, Alice D’Agostini Deutsch, Celso Moura Rebello

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082014AO2711

Objective:To investigate the influence of the site of measurement of transcutaneous bilirubin (forehead or sternum) in reproducibility of results as compared to plasma bilirubin.Methods: A cohort study including 58 term newborns with no hemolytic disease. Transcutaneous measurements were performed on the forehead (halfway between the headline and the glabella, from the left toward the right side, making consecutive determinations, one-centimeter apart) and the sternum (five measurements, from the suprasternal notch to the xiphoid process with consecutive determinations, one-centimeter apart) using […]

Timing of initial surfactant treatment in very low birth weight newborns

Celso Moura Rebello, Luciene Ferreira do Amaral Nacif, Alice D´Agostini Deutsch, Ângela Tavares Paes

DOI: 10.1590/s1679-45082010ao1758

ABSTRACTObjective:To correlate the timing of treatment using exogenous surfactant with the main variables related to respiratory distress syndrome or prematurity.Methods:A historic cohort study between January 1, 2004 and June 30, 2007, including very low birth weight newborns (birth weight
