Twelve-Month Follow-Up of Postmature and Respiratory Distress Syndrome Infants.
Field, Tiffany
A 12-month followup study of 151 infants (46 preterm respiratory disease syndrome--RDS--Ss, 46 postterm postmaturity syndrome Ss, and 59 normal term Ss) was conducted to ascertain any early intervention needs and early predictors on 1-year performance, and to formulate a cumulative risk index which would identify those infants who were continuing at risk and who might benefit from very early intervention. In summary, the risk groups experienced some similar prenatal complications, some very different forms of difficult neonatal behavior as measured by the Brazelton Neonatal Scale, and some developmental delays in different areas (the postmature in early mental development and the RDS in early motor development).
