AIM: Neonatal resuscitation surveys have showed practice variations between countries, centres and levels of care. We evaluated delivery room practices after a nationwide neonatal resuscitation training programme focused on non-tertiary centres. METHODS: A 2012 survey sent to all Spanish hospitals handling deliveries covered staff availability and training, equipment and practices in the delivery room and during transfers to neonatal intensive care units. The results from 98 centres that had completed a previous survey in 2007 were analysed by levels of care...

AIM: Glomerular hyperfiltration is an early marker of sickle cell nephropathy and can lead to microalbuminuria and renal failure. Our aim was to identify the associated risk factors, as these could be of preventative importance. METHODS: We recruited 150 children with sickle cell anaemia (SCA), aged 2-18 years and living in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of Congo. Hyperfiltration and microalbuminuria were defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate of less than 140 ml/min/1...

AIM: Although recognising insulin resistance in children is particularly important, the gold standard test used to diagnose it, the euglyceamic glucose clamp, is costly, invasive and is not routinely available in our clinical settings in Mexico. This study evaluated whether the triglyceride-glucose (TyG) index would provide a useful alternative. METHODS: A total of 2,779 school children aged 7-17 years, from Durango, Mexico, were enrolled during 2015-2016. The gold standard euglyceamic-hyperinsulinemic clamp test was performed in a randomly selected subsample of 125 children and diagnostic concordance between the TyG index and the homeostasis model assessment of IR was evaluated in all of the 2,779 enrolled children...

AIM: This study analysed the changes in growth velocity (GV) of preterm infants weighing less than 1,500g based on different nutritional practices over a 24-year period. METHODS: A retrospective study with prospectively collected data was performed in a level three Spanish neonatal intensive care unit. Data on birth weight, gestational age (GA) and GV were collected from 1990 to 2013 and breastfeeding data was gathered from 2000. A generalised linear model corrected by GA and small for gestational age was applied...

AIM: There have not been any continence-specific measurement tools in Swedish that have allowed clinicians to investigate the quality of life (QoL) in children with bladder dysfunction. This study evaluated the QoL in Swedish children with nocturnal enuresis and tested the reliability of a Swedish translation of the Paediatric Incontinence Questionnaire (PinQ). METHODS: This prospective study comprised 46 children aged 6-18 years with nocturnal enuresis, who completed the PinQ after it was translated into Swedish...

: Heart rate is a vital sign for assessing the need for resuscitation. We performed a systematic review of studies assessing novel methods of measuring heart rate in newborns and infants in the neonatal unit. Two investigators completed independent literature searches. Identified papers were independently evaluated and relevant data were extracted and analysed. CONCLUSION: This systematic review identified seven new technologies, including camera-based photoplethysmography, reflectance pulse oximetry, laser Doppler methods, capacitive sensors, piezoelectric sensors, electromyography, and a digital stethoscope...

Sascha Meyer, Axel R Franz, Johannes Bay, Ludwig Gortner
The synopsis by Hines et al reports various definitions of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) (1). We agree there is a need to harmonise the definition of BPD and our definition (2) was adapted from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development network definition by Jobe and Bancalari (3) It incorporates important aspects that have evolved over time, such as the use of high-flow nasal cannulas, and takes into account differences between clinical centres, including different target oxygen saturations...

AIM: This study examined the heart rate variability characteristics associated with early onset neonatal sepsis in a prospective, observational controlled study. METHODS: Eligible patients were full-term neonates hospitalised with clinical signs that suggested early onset sepsis and a C reactive protein of > 10 mg/L. Sepsis was considered proven in cases of symptomatic septicaemia, meningitis, pneumonia or enterocolitis. Heart rate variability parameters (n=16) were assessed from five, 15 and 30 minutes stationary sequences automatically selected from electrocardiographic recordings performed at admission and compared with a control group using the U-test with post-hoc Benjamini-Yekutieli correction...

AIM: Little is known about the organisation of child maltreatment practice in Europe. We therefore explored medical child protection systems and training across Europe. METHODS: Online survey to physicians working in child maltreatment, identified through professional organisations in 28 member countries of the European Union, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland in 2012-13. Respondents were questioned regarding management of suspected child maltreatment, mandatory reporting, professional training, patient referral, and physician roles in multidisciplinary investigations...

REVIEW
Despina-Zoe T Mermiri, Theodora Lappa, Athina L Papadopoulou
: For years, the advice was to postpone introducing allergenic foods, in order to prevent food allergies. However, food allergies have escalated rather than declined and our review of the latest epidemiological, immunological and nutritional research suggests that early weaning practices may be beneficial. The most allergenic foods, such as fish, eggs and peanuts, have proved to be inherently rich in tolerogenic substances that can play a significant role in preventing allergies. CONCLUSION: We found evidence that the immunoregulatory and anti-inflammatory properties of allergenic foods can provoke oral tolerance if introduced early to both low-risk and high-risk infants...

AIM: Methods are needed to evaluate the level of early motor development and quality of motor performance in infants. We examined the convergent and discriminant validity of the Structured Observation of Motor Performance in Infants (SOMP-I) for evaluating the level of motor development and quality of motor performance in preterm and term infants. METHODS: A regional cohort of 111 preterm infants with a gestational age of less than 32 weeks and 72 healthy term born infants were assessed with the SOMP-I, at two, four, six and 10 months of corrected age...

AIM: Since Kawasaki disease (KD) was first reported in 1967, its aetiology has been intensively investigated, but remains unclear. We investigated the incidence of recurrent KD in Japan in 2003-2012, compared to previous data from our team, and assessed the potential risk factors for disease recurrence. METHODS: Data from nationwide KD surveys were retrospectively analysed and 81,310 patients were observed. Incidence rates were compared between different years. RESULTS: The incidence rates for recurrent KD were 3...

AIM: The purpose of this study was to determine whether high levels of strenuous physical activity outside of organised sports are associated with better functional test performance. METHODS: Youth athletes (n= 445, mean= 14.2±2.5 years) reported their frequency of strenuous physical activity outside of organised sports. The functional performance tests: vertical jump height, pro agility test time, estimated maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max), front plank time, and postural stability were measured and compared between groups...

AIM: Excessive television (TV) exposure has negative impacts on a child's development, health and behaviour. This study examined the under-researched area of what impact infant and parental TV viewing during a child's infancy had on the child's later viewing habits. METHODS: Data on 18,577 babies born in 2005 were collected from the Taiwan Birth Cohort Study, a prospective longitudinal study of a nationally representative cohort. Group-based trajectory analysis was conducted to identify childhood TV viewing trajectories at 18, 36 and 66 months of age...

AIM: Evidence on how the pace of television and film editing affects children's behaviour and attention is inconclusive. We examined whether a fast-paced film affected how preschool-aged children interacted with toys. METHODS: The study comprised 70 children (36 girls) aged 2-4.5 years who attended preschools in Essex, United Kingdom. The children were paired up and tested with either a fast- or a slow-paced film of a narrator reading a children's story. The fast-paced version had 102 camera cuts and 16 still images and the slow-paced version had 22 camera cuts and four still images...

Neural tube defects (NTDs) are congenital malformations of the central nervous system. The causes are often unknown, but they may be genetic or related to low folate levels or drug exposure in utero. There are approximately 65,000 births a year in Denmark and each year 60-70 Danish pregnancies will be affected by an NTD that is visible on an ultrasound (1). This article is protected by copyright.
