Multiple course steroid treatment protects lungs of preterm babiesSurvival rate and lung functioning of preterm babies can improve when repeated courses of steroids are administered to their nursing mothers during preterm labor, as per a study. The study also noted that the use of steroids does not lead to brain damage to baby in womb as was thought previously.

Babies need to be placed on ventilation when steroid-based treatment is avoided or delayed, according to Sanjiv Amin, M.D., assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical center and author of the study.

It was remarked by Amin that auditory brainstem evoked response or ABR can act as a window into children’s entire brain and there is no result that suggest that administration of multiple courses of betamethasone steroids do not lead to side effects on an infant’s brain.

Multiple steroid courses can protect lungs of preterm babies

According to a latest study, repeated courses of steroids administered to nursing women during preterm labor have the potential to improve survival rate of babies. The study also suggested that there is no truth in the long-held belief that steroids cause brain damage to babies in the wombs.

Sanjiv Amin, M.D., assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical center and author of the study, remarked that babies go on ventilation in cases where steroid treatment is delayed or avoided by nursing mothers.

It was also remarked by Amin that ABR (auditory brainstem evoked response) can be termed as a window into the entire brain. The study concluded by suggesting that there were no results to suggest that an infant brain administered with multiple courses of betamethasone steroids gets affected in any way.

Lungs of Preterm babies protected with multiple courses of steroids.Repeated courses of steroids administered to nursing women during preterm labor can prove effective when it comes to improving survival rate of babies. It was also suggested that steroids do not result in brain damage to baby in womb as was thought previously.

It was remarked by Sanjiv Amin, M.D., assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical center and author of the study, that more babies need ventilation when steroid treatment is delayed or avoided by nursing mothers.

Amin also remarked that ABR (auditory brainstem evoked response) can be termed as a window into the entire brain and there were no suggesting results for proving that an infant’s brain receiving multiple courses of betamethasone steroids gets affected in any way.

Multiple Courses of Steroids protect lung of Preterm BabiesA recently concluded study revealed that repeated courses of steroids to nursing women in preterm labor can enhance the survival rate of babies. It was also revealed that multiple courses of steroids do not result in brain damage of the baby in womb as thought previously.

Sanjiv Amin, M.D., assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical center and author of the study, remarked that more babies are expected to be born needing ventilation when steroid treatment is avoided by the nursing mothers.

Amin also remarked that auditory brainstem evoked response (ABR) is like a window into the whole brain and there were no results that can prove that the brain of an infant whose mother received multiple courses of betamethasone steroids gets affected in any way.

It was also remarked by Amin that there is a need to conduct more relevant studies so that the treatment can be termed as completely safe and effective.
