Won Mo Yang, Wea Kyung Shin, Whang Min Kim, Back Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(12):1637-1641.   Published online December 31, 1989
We measured the glucose diappearance rate(Kt) in 24 normal neonates and in 19 ill neonates by intravenous glucose tolerance test. The results were as follows: 1) The glucose disappearance rate of 2-day-old normal neonates was 1.59±0.8%/min. 2) The glucose disappearance rate of ill neonates who had negative culture studies was 2.08±l. 4%/min. 3) There was no significant difference in glucose disappearance rate between normal neonates and ill neonates who had...

Life-threatening bacterial infections such as meningitis, septicemia, and pneumonia in the neonates are more common than at any other time in life and signs of these infections are often subtle and non-specific. Because of these factors, the patient who has persistent fever will almost always be started on parenteral antibiotics immediately following evaluation. On the other hand there is also evidence that the hospital...
The Relationship of Specific Gravity by Refractometer and Osmolality in the Urine of Neonates.
Hae Young Lee, In Soon Ahn, Jae Seung Yang, Beak Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1988;31(5):555-558.   Published online May 31, 1988
Comparison of urinary specific gravity by refractometer and osmolality in 238 neonates demonstrated as followings; 1) The regression line is represented by the equation: Y = 107+14.2 (X-1000) while Y = osmolality in mosm/kg X = Specific gravity by refractometer r=0.8545 2) Osmolality is the only accurate measure of urine concentration in newborn infants. If the specific gravity by refractometer is used to screen for urine concentration, an elevated level...
Transcutaneous Bilirubin Measurements in Newborn Infants.
Cook Huh, Soon Bock park, Baek Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim, Duk Jin Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1985;28(4):314-324.   Published online April 30, 1985
Neonatal jaundice is probably the most frequently encountered diagnostic and therapeutic problem in the newborn, but its accurate assessment still requires a measurement of the serum bilirubin concentration. To date, repetitive and continuing blood sampling has been the only acceptable methodology available for monitoring the jaundiced newborn infant. This technique serves as a source of discomfort and of serious infection(Lilien...
Clinical Observation of Neonatal Skin.
Kyu Han Kim, Hee Chul Eun, Chong Ku Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1984;27(11):1063-1069.   Published online November 30, 1984
A clinical study of neonatal skin was carried out from March 1983 to November 1983. This study sought to investigate the incidence and clinical features of neonatal skin abnormalities. 729 neonates of Seoul National University Hospital were included in this study and the results can be summarized as follows; 1) Mongolian spots were observed in 80.2%, occuring most frequently in the sacral area. 2) Salmon patches...
Hyperglycemia in Small Premature Neonates.
Soon Hwa Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1983;26(12):1168-1172.   Published online December 31, 1983
The blood glucose response to a constant glucose infusion were measured in 36 low birth weight infants with birth weight 950 to 2,000 gm. The study includes 27 control premature infants and 9 stressed premature infants who had respiratory distress. Glucose values were similar in both the control and stressed groups in the cord and preinfusion samples. In the first postinfusion sample, hyperglycemia was...
