Furthermore, each of these conditions was independently associated with an increased risk for delivering a low birth weight
baby, but, surprisingly, the associations differed by VLBW or MLBW.
0 (Rosenberg, Adams, & Gurevitch, 2000) computer program was used to examine (a) the differences of birth weight
, age, and pre-pregnancy weight between the exercise group and control group, and (b) the effect size of birth weight
between pregnant mothers who exercised less than 30 minutes versus those who exercised between 30 and 60 minutes.
Other findings have to do with a variety of interesting matters such as the importance for the weight of the offspring of the length of time its mother was hospitalized, and evidence which may figure into the still unresolved question of the contribution of race and other genetic factors to birth weight
This study develops a simple model of birth outcome measured by the infant's birth weight
2003), we still observed an important reduction in birth weight
as PCB-153 levels increased.
In the high IL-6 group, the birth weight
standard deviation was -0.
Studies worldwide have examined the effect of socio-economic status (SES) indicators, including maternal education, on birth weight
During 2005-06, the researchers enrolled 88 mother--newborn pairs in which the baby had low birth weight
and 113 pairs in which the baby was born at a normal weight.
If it were found that the simple formula could provide fetal weight estimates with 10% of the birth weight
in over 60% of estimations in this validation, the formula would be acceptable for use in clinical practice.
Low birth weight
is correlated with a number of adverse outcomes for children, including future health problems and poorer educational outcomes.
Phototherapy helps to reduce the bilirubin level and the risk of brain damage that can occur when bilirubin crosses from the blood into the brain, but it is unclear whether aggressive phototherapy to prevent the neurotoxic effects of bilirubin benefits or harms infants with extremely low birth weight
(1000g or less).
The proportion of babies born in Worcester County with low birth weight
- less than 5-1/2 pounds - was 7.
