Research Projects

  1. Whole-body vibration in neonatal transport: a review of current knowledge and future research challenges


    This review intends to highlight what is known about vibration as a physical stressor in neonates and areas for further research; with the goal to making recommendations for minimizing these stressors during transport.

  2. The transplacental passage of commonly used intrapartum antibiotics and its impact on the newborn management: A narrative review


    Maternally-administered ampicillin, penicillin, and cefazolin rapidly achieve therapeutic levels in the fetal circulation.

  3. Do transport factors increase the risk of severe brain injury in outborn infants less than 33 weeks gestational age?


    Risk factors for SBI were related to the condition at birth and immediate postnatal management and not related to transport factors. These results highlight the importance of maternal transfer to perinatal centers to allow optimization of perinatal management.
