Premature Rupture of Membranes
before the course of labor -
This results in intrauterine infection
referred as "
" - meconium aspiration
and others risks can lead to neonatal sepsis
Blood or CSF cultures are required for diagnosis
-Optimal treatment includes:
(100mg/kg/day IV divided every 12 hours for a premature neonate). 2)
usually amikacin at a dose of 15mg/kg/dose q24-48hrs depending on Wt and PNA
*monitor CrCl for renal functions
Important notes to be taken into consideration:
• Infant’s Weight on 26/8 2.44 K.G
• Infant’s Weight on 2/8 2.37 K.G
• Height = 50 cm
• GA = 39 weeks / Full term neonate
• 27/7 Serum Creatinine = 1.32 GFR = 17
• 29/7 Serum Creatinine = 1.4 GFR = 16.1
• 2/8 Serum Creatinine = 0.9 GFR = 25
.Premature rupture of membranes can lead to
hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE).

The newborn’s body can
compensate for brief periods of depleted oxygen,
but if the asphyxia lasts too long, brain tissue is destroyed.
-It Is defined clinically on the basis of a
constellation of findings
to include a combination of abnormal :
.tone and reflexes
Muscle tone may be increased slightly.
.Transient behavioural abnormalities, such as poor feeding, irritability, or excessive crying or sleepiness,
may be observed
By 3 - 4 days of life, the central nervous system examination findings become normal
.The baby is lethargic, with significant hypotonia
.The grasping, Moro, and sucking reflexes may be sluggish or absent
.The baby may experience occasional periods of apnea
.Seizures may occur within the first 24 hours of life.
.Full recovery within 1 - 2 weeks is possible
may be irregular, and the baby often requires ventilatory support
.Generalized hypotonia and depressed deep tendon reflexes are common
.Neonatal reflexes (e.g. sucking, swallowing, grasping, Moro) are absent
.Disturbances of ocular motion.

Aside from treatment with hypothermia, suggested the following recommendations:
Evaluate with an EEG
to gather information regarding the treatment and prognosis of neonatal encephalopathy.

in infants with neonatal encephalopathy.
● Arterial blood gases and serum calcium, magnesium, glucose, and electrolytes should be assessed early in the course and as needed. Liver enzymes and serum creatinine are measured to identify injury to other end organs.
Use high frequency ventilation
, nitric oxide, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation therapies, as available, for infants with persistent pulmonary hypertension
in order to maintain oxygenation.
●Treat seizures with
phenobarbitone, phentyoin , or (lorazepam , Midazolam).
:It is the drug of choice in neonatal seizures.
The dose is 20 mg/kg/IV slowly over 20 minutes (not faster than 1 mg/kg/min).
If seizures persist after completion of this
, additional doses of phenobarbitone 10 mg/kg may be used every 20-30 minutes until a total dose of 40 mg/kg has been given.

●Replace volume and use

hyaline membrane disease
, is a common problem in
This disorder is caused primarily by
deficiency of pulmonary surfactant in an immature lung.
Surfactant is not produced in adequate amounts until relatively late in gestation (
34 to 36 wk)
; thus, risk of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) increases with greater prematurity
Prognosis with treatment is excellent; mortality is < 10% ,
RDS resolves within 4 or 5 days

The duration of therapy is guided by the infecting pathogen and the response of the patient. The usual treatment course for uncomplicated pneumonia is
10 to 14 days.
Specific agents for the treatment of viral pneumonia are limited. For most viral infections acquired in the perinatal or postnatal period, therapy remains

The initial management of an infant with suspected AKI includes:
