Abstract

Computerised continuous measurement of mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and serial cranial ultrasonography in 33 infants of less than 31 weeks' gestation showed that a MAP of less than 30 mm Hg for over an hour was significantly associated with severe haemorrhage, ischaemic cerebral lesions, or death within 48 hours. No severe lesions developed with a MAP greater than or equal to mm Hg.
