PFOS Reduces Time to FOF and LOS in Very Preterm Infants Without Adverse Effects:
- This study showed a reduction in time to FOF by 4.0 days, and LOS by 6.0 days.
- The 29-30 weeks subgroup reached FOF 5.1 days earlier, and their LOS was reduced by 10.5 days when compared to the control group.
Reduced length of stay (LOS) and associated costs and improved hospital operations:
Risks and Costs of Feeding Tubes:
This study shows that NG-tubes yielded high densities of bacteria even within the first day of use. Limiting the use of feeding tubes can help minimize the risk of complications with a reduced exposure to bacteria.
