Intraventricular Haemorrhage (IVH)

Intraventricular Haemorrhage (IVH) - How to prevent?

Preterm infants have very fragile blood vessels in their brains.  Despite having the best of care, sometimes IVH still happens.  Some interventions to reduce the occurrence of IVH are:
  • Prevention of premature delivery by advocating early and regular prenatal care 
  • Prenatal steroids during pregnancy
  • Monitor blood pressure closely and avoiding sudden/frequent fluctuations
  • Minimal handling of extremely premature and extremely small babies once they are born
  • Avoiding excessive changes in breathing parameters and support
  • Timely treatment of Patent Ductus Arteriosus
