When is the immediate treatment for extreme prematurity needed?

Premature birth treatment is necessary if the baby is born before or at the 37th week of pregnancy. Preterm care is necessary to address breathing problems, heart problems, blood problems, and problems of the immune system. The baby requires special care in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit by neonatologists and expert nursing staff.

How is extreme prematurity diagnosed?

A neonatologist may consider multiple tests to assess thecondition of the baby. Some of these tests may be necessary to detect potential complications. These may include bloodtests, heart rate monitoring, fluid input and output, ECG, and an ultrasound scan.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • An absence of round features that are common in full-term babies
  • Low-fat storage
  • Low body temperature
  • Absence of sucking reflexes
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Greater head circumference
  • Small size

Important indicators of recovery are a steady gain in weight and breastfeeding. The preterm infant should breathe with no outside support and maintain normal body temperature. The baby can go home after assessing these parameters.

The presence of twins or a shorter interval between two deliveries can cause prematurity. IVF treatments, uterine problems, and lifestyle diseases like diabetes are few risk factors for premature birth. Lack of proper nutrition during pregnancy or infections of the reproductive system are also some of the risk factors.

A premature infant is more prone to suffering from chronic infections than a full-term baby. The baby may also have problems with development, hearing, or vision. Dental problems such as improper tooth alignment, delay in the eruption of teeth, and discoloration are common long-term complications in preterm babies.

Preventive measures may be possible if we know the risk factors. Administration of hormone or corticosteroid therapy during pregnancy in high-risk mothers may prevent preterm birth.
