Early neonatal hypocalcaemia.

By N R Roberton and M A Smith


In our hospital early neonatal hypocalcaemia is now the major cause of low serum calcium in the neonatal period. Over a 2-year period, only 2 cases of hypocalcaemic convulsions were seen in a total of 8700 deliveries, though 51 infants had early neonatal hypocalcaemia. All sick low birth-weight infants should have daily serum calcium estimations carried out. Calcium supplements should be considered if symptoms of hypocalcaemia are present
