Thrombocytopenia among extremely low birth weight neonates: data from a multihospital healthcare system.
Thrombocytopenia is common in neonatal intensive care units (NICU), with 18 to 35% of patients developing this problem before hospital discharge. It might be even more common among extremely low birth weight neonates (ELBW, < or = 1000 g birth weight). However, little is known about thrombocytopenia in the ELBW population. We sought to determine the incidence, timing, causes, platelet transfusions given, and outcomes of thrombocytopenia among ELBW neonates.
