PURPOSE: Research suggests that parenting a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) brings about major challenges to parents' own psychological resources. Considered through the lens of Self-Determination Theory (Ryan & Deci, 2017), parents rearing a child with ASD particularly face challenges to their psychological needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness. In turn, these challenges potentially jeopardize parents' capacity to attune to their child. This qualitative study aims to advance insight into (the interplay between) parents' experiences and parenting behaviors when raising a child with ASD, thereby using SDT as a framework to understand how these experiences and behaviors relate to the psychological needs for autonomy, relatedness and competence...

PROBLEM: Daily bathing of the preterm infant in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a process that is usually done routinely, but it can cause many adverse effects on the stability of the infant. Highlights include decreased body temperature and increased stress, which can cause alterations in its proper growth and development. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: We included both descriptive studies and analytical studies that evaluated the effects of bathing on the physiological state of the preterm infants admitted to NICU...

PURPOSE: Accurate body temperature measurement is essential in providing timely care to critically ill patients. Current practice within the Pediatric ICU (PICU) at a Midwestern academic medical center is to obtain axillary temperatures in endotracheally intubated patients. According to research, axillary temperatures have greater variance than other forms of temperature measurement. Research in adult patients show that oral temperature measurement in endotracheally intubated patients is acceptable as the heated gases from the ventilator has no significant effect on measured temperatures...

Pediatric early warning systems have been implemented in many children's hospitals in the hope that they would aid in the early identification of hospitalized children who are clinically deteriorating. A large, recently completed multicenter study found that the use of the Bedside Pediatric Early Warning System (BedsidePEWS) did not decrease all-cause mortality compared to usual care hospitals and did not support the use of the BedsidePEWS to reduce mortality. Earlier studies had found that the use of pediatric early warning systems removed communication barriers and empowered nurses to make independent clinical decisions based on a predetermined multidisciplinary plan...
