Research implications

  • None of the conditions in which retinal haemorrhages were noted have been examined in a large-scale epidemiological study, thus the true prevalence of retinal haemorrhages in these cases cannot be determined.  It would be particularly beneficial for such studies to be conducted on children with osteogenesis imperfecta and the metabolic disorders identified
  • Further studies of children undergoing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, preferably with ophthalmological exam pre- and post-cardiopulmonary resuscitation, are warranted
