Abstract

Morphologic evidence for calcium salts within the brains of severely stressed neonates at autopsycorrelated to the mean daily parenteral dose of calcium gluconate (P<0.01). Survival analysis indicated that parenteral administration of calcium contributed a negative effect to predicted survival (P<0.05).
