Union Minister of State for Shipping Mansukh Mandaviya launched the project on Wednesday and handed over the new BSID
cards to five Indian seafarers.
(1996)--with the same cohort--found no significant differences between breastfed and formula-fed infants at 3 mo of age for the PDI test of the BSID
, at 7 mo of age, breastfed infants scored significantly higher than formula-fed infants.
where [bsID.sub.T] is the bsID
for textual feature, [bsID.sub.S] is the bsID
for spatial feature, [[DELTA].sup.i.sub.T], is the i-th subrange for the textual distance, and [[DELTA].sup.i.sub.S] is the j-th subrange for the spatial distance.
Because the infants with regular evaluations were referred to special rehabilitation programs, in order to correlate compliance with the follow-up program and risk categories (L/M/S-according to the BSID
II examination), we created an "outcome score", as follows:
In an analysis of pooled results, both maternal supplementation and infant supplementation were reported to result in similarly improved neurodevelopment, with standardised mean difference in BSID
being 0.21 (95% CI: 0.01-0.41) and 0.24 (95% CI: 0.00-0.48), respectively.
An ID was defined as a physician who completed IDRT in a CNRM-accredited program or who had passed the BSID
A follow-up study at 18 months had shown no differences between the two formula groups as a whole on scores on the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID
); supplemented boys, however, showed higher BSID
Mental Development index scores than the control-formula group; the girls' scores did not differ between groups.
Six cohort studies used the same test - BSID
- to assess the cognitive function of their participants between 5 and 8 months of age and thus could provide comparable data (Table 3).
The first test was the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID
; Bayley, 1969) for ages 2-30 months.
Developmental evaluation of the infant or child was assessed with the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID
), Second Edition, (33) a measure for children between the ages of 2 months and 42 months, that describes a child's mental (Mental Developmental Index [MDI]) and psychomotor (Psychomotor Developmental Index [PDI]) functioning and also includes a behavior rating scale.
Characteristics of these disorders include, among others, lower birth weight, smaller head circumference, and lower scores on the Mental Developmental Index (MDI) of Bayley Scales of Infant Development Mental Index (BSID
