Disk Issue 4, 2005 of The Cochrane Library contains 204 completed reviews and 62 protocols of reviews in progress from the Neonatal Review Group.

The following is a list of new reviews, new protocols and updated reviews in this issue:

NEW REVIEWS

1. Continuous infusion versus intermittent flushing to prevent loss of function of peripheral intravenous catheters used for drug administration in newborn infants
2. Prophylactic antibiotics to reduce morbidity and mortality in neonates with umbilical venous catheters

SUBSTANTIVELY UPDATED REVIEWS

1. Heparin for prolonging peripheral intravenous catheter use in neonates
2. Ibuprofen for the treatment of patent ductus arteriosus in preterm and/or low birth weight infants
3. Non-nutritive sucking for promoting physiologic stability and nutrition in preterm infants

NEW PROTOCOLS

1. Early developmental intervention programs post hospital discharge to prevent motor and cognitive impairments in preterm infants
2. Probiotics for prevention of mortality and morbidity in preterm infants
3. Sildenafil for pulmonary hypertension in neonates
 

See www.cochrane.org for more information. The reviews are also available on the NICHD website: http://www.nichd.nih.gov/cochrane/.

Dear webmaster:

I am writing on behalf of Dr. Jay Greenspan, Dr. Richard Polin and Dr. William Fox regarding the launching of a new web site designed to educate and deliver CME credits to Neonatologists and other professionals within this community. Our web site is www.NICUniversity.org and we are launching on October 20th. We would like to link your web site on ours so that people can transfer easily between the web sites. Please take a look at our placement which will explain the purpose of our web site. We are a non profit, sponsored driven web site and will be a multi sponsored site in the coming year.

Regards

5. Pre-discharge "car seat challenge" for preventing morbidity and mortality in preterm infants
6. Prophylactic nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) versus prophylactic nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) for preterm infants
7. Routine screening by echocardiography to reduce morbidity and mortality from congenital heart disease in neonates with Down syndrome
 

REVIEW UPDATES (Substantive)

1. Continuous heparin infusion to prevent thrombosis and catheter occlusion in neonates with peripherally placed percutaneous central venous catheters
2. Opiate treatment for opiate withdrawal in newborn infants
3. Prophylactic nasal continuous positive airways pressure for preventing morbidity and mortality in very preterm infants
4. Sedatives for opiate withdrawal in newborn infants
