Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Children requiring intensive care in the neonatal period have more fine motor injuries, learning difficulties, eating disorders and sleeping problems. Sleep disorder rate is about 10-30% in children who had no problem in newborn period. We aimed to investigate the rate of sleep disorder in children who were hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit during the neonatal period.
Material and Methods: Fourty-six patients hospitalized in neonatal intensive care unit and still followed in outpatient policlinic at Çukurova University were enrolled in to the study. Children’s Sleep Habits Questionnaire was performed to evaluate sleep resistance, delay in fall into sleep, duration of sleep, sleep anxiety, parasomnia, midnight awakening and daily sleepiness.
Results: Children were 6.64±1.18 years old. They were healthy and had no neurological sequela. None of the parents complained about sleep disorders. However, 20 of the 46 (43.47%) children had sleep disorder (Sleep disorder group). Twenty-six children had no sleep disorder (No sleep disorder group). There isn’t any statistically difference between the groups that terms of gestational age, birth weight, ventilator support, gender (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Although there isn’t any significant difference between groups, sleep disorder rate is higher compared to normal population’s rates reported in the previous studies. Infants discharged from neonatal intensive care unit should be under evaluation also for sleep disorder.

Keywords: Hospitalized newborn babies; sleep disorder; early childhood; premature
