Babies: Another Medical Mystery

[Click on Post Title for Link to External Article]

This one could make for an interesting medical management problem. The article is a summary of a new study arising out of Stanford, concluding that babies born at night time are likelier to die than babies born during daytime.

There seem to be some interesting, fleeting connections to nurse-shift changes and such possibilities. Yet there has been no extensive scientific study into what goes on that causes these deaths.

There may be some interesting outcomes of an examination that may result in a good understanding and better neonatal care.
