  • Use of reflective materials during phototherapy for newborn infants with unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2020 Jul 01; 7:CD012011.Van Rostenberghe H, Ho JJ, … Abd Hamid IJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Moderate-certainty evidence shows that the use of reflective curtains during phototherapy may result in greater decline in SB. Very low-certainty evidence suggests that the duration of phototherapy is reduced, and moderate-certainty evidence shows that the duration of hospital stay is also reduced. Available evidence does not show any increase in adverse events, but further studies are needed.
  • Photosensitization by Brachiaria ruziziensis in a sheep herd. [Case Reports]
    Toxicon. 2020 Jun 26 [Online ahead of print]Diamantino GML, Pierezan F, … Soto-Blanco B
  • Some species of the genus Brachiaria are cultivated worldwide in tropical and subtropical climate regions as the main feed for ruminants. Several studies report photosensitization by Brachiaria decumbens, Brachiaria brizantha, and Brachiaria humidicola, but the poisoning by Brachiaria ruziziensis have been reported only twice. Cutaneous and hepatic lesions may be caused by the steroidal saponins …
  • A rare case of peliosis hepatis in primary immune deficiency. [Case Reports]
    SAGE Open Med Case Rep. 2020; 8:2050313X20931996.Angulo E, Joyner S, … Nyenhuis S
  • Peliosis hepatis is a rare condition characterized by blackish-blue blood-filled cavities in hepatic parenchyma caused by dilatation of hepatic sinusoids. Peliosis hepatis has been described in secondary immunodeficiencies and certain medications. We present the first case of peliosis hepatis in a patient with a primary immunodeficiency, common variable immunodeficiency. A 44-year-old African-Ame…

We report a 52-year-old male smoker with hypertension, asthma, and alcohol abuse who was admitted with severe epigastric pain radiating to the back. He was found to hav…
  • Optimization of the incubator air temperature during LED phototherapy treatment for the preterm infant. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Pediatr. 2020 Jun 27 [Online ahead of print]Yassin FC, Delanaud S, … Tourneux P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Phototherapy treatment for jaundice of the preterm infant increased the incubator air temperature. To prevent overheating in the preterm during phototherapy, new curves for optimal air temperature settings inside the incubator were calculated with analytic calorimetry. What is Known •Phototherapy treatment is the first-line treatment for jaundice in the preterm infant. •Phototherapy treatment increases the risk of overheating. What is New •The heat transfers and risk of overheating were quantified using a thermal manikin during phototherapy treatment. •Phototherapy treatment increased the incubator roof temperature and heat transfers. •New incubator's air temperature settings during phototherapy treatment were calculated with analytical calorimetry for preterm infant weighing 500-2000 g.

  • Complementary alternative medicine use among postpartum mothers in a primary care setting: a cross-sectional study in Malaysia. [Journal Article]
    BMC Complement Med Ther. 2020 Jun 26; 20(1):197.Nik Yusof Fuad NF, Ching SM, … Zakaria ZA
  • CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of CAM use was high (8 out of 10) among postpartum mothers. Postpartum mothers who are Malay, Muslim, have a higher educational level and who have had spontaneous vaginal delivery tended to use CAM more. Manipulative body therapies, including massage, reflexology, hot stone compression and body wrapping, were the most widely used forms of CAM, followed by biological-based therapies. More than half of the mothers who consumed herbal medicine reported neonatal jaundice in their newborn. Thus, education to increase awareness regarding the consumption of herbs is urgently required in this country.
