Children's Health: Antidepressant use in late pregnancy and newborn respiratory disorder ♦ Altruism linked with better physiological regulation ♦ Adolescents with sports-related concussion


Examination of antidepressant use in late pregnancy and newborn respiratory disorder An analysis of approximately 3.8 million pregnancies finds that use of antidepressants late in pregnancy may be associated with an increased risk of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN). However, the absolute risk was small. PPHN is a rare but life-threatening condition that occurs when a newborn's circulation system doesn't adapt to breathing outside the womb

Vestibulo-ocular dysfunction in children and adolescents with sports-related concussion Researchers have investigated the frequency of vestibule-ocular dysfunction in children and adolescents with sports-related concussion and found that its presence was predictive of a prolonged recovery.
