A two-year comparative study of admissions of term neonates for hypoglycaemia: what have the BAPM recommendations changed?

Praveen Kishore, Rahul Kachroo


Hypoglycaemia is a leading cause of term admissions to neonatal units but many term babies admitted for hypoglycaemia could be cared for in an alternative hospital or community setting. The British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) Framework for Practice aims to reduce national variation in detection and management of term babies with hypoglycaemia. The study presented here compares the epidemiology of neonatal hypoglycaemia in term neonates admitted to a tertiary neonatal intensive care unit for a one-year period before and after implementation of a BAPM recommendations-based guideline.
