INTRODUCTION: For those living with Kawasaki disease and coronary artery aneurysms, little is known about the psychosocial burden faced by parents and their children. METHODS: Exploratory, descriptive, mixed-methods design examining survey and interview data about health-related uncertainty, intrusiveness, and self-efficacy. RESULTS: Parents' uncertainty was associated with missed diagnosis, higher income, and maternal education. Higher uncertainty scores among children were associated with absence of chest pain and lower number of echocardiograms...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate the effects of an advanced practice nurse-delivered telehealth intervention on health care use by children with medical complexity (CMC). Because CMC account for a large share of health care use costs, finding effective ways to care for them is an important challenge requiring exploration. METHOD: This was a secondary analysis of data from a randomized clinical trial with a control group and two intervention groups...

This case study examines some common complementary and alternative treatments used in the management of behavioral and gastrointestinal symptoms associated with autism including food selectivity, abdominal pain, nausea, gastroesophageal reflux, constipation, and diarrhea. The current literature on the safety and efficacy of these treatments for pediatric patients is reviewed. This study examines therapies including gluten-free and casein-free diet, probiotics, vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, chelation therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic manipulations used in treating these core symptoms of autism...

Separation anxiety disorder (SAD) is the most common childhood anxiety disorder, and it has many consequences, particularly for school-age children. These consequences include excessive worry, sleep problems, distress in social and academic settings, and a variety of physical symptoms that, left untreated, can cause social and academic decline. Pediatric providers routinely see children in the primary care office and have the unique opportunity to diagnose, treat, and manage children with SAD. Despite this, SAD continues to be underdiagnosed and undertreated because of a gap in the literature regarding evidence-based practice guidelines for pediatric providers...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the feasibility and acceptability of implementing eHealth Familias Unidas, an Internet-based, family-based, preventive intervention for Hispanic adolescents, in primary care. METHODS: Semistructured individual interviews with clinic personnel and facilitators (i.e., physicians, nurse practitioners, administrators, and mental health workers; n = 9) and one focus group with parents (n = 6) were audiorecorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed using a general inductive approach...

OBJECTIVE: Knowledge of asthma home management from the perspective of poor, minority children with asthma is limited. METHOD: Convenience sampling methods were used to recruit families of low-income children who are frequently in the emergency department for uncontrolled asthma. Thirteen youths participated in focus groups designed to elicit reflections on asthma home management. Data were analyzed using grounded theory coding techniques. RESULTS: Participants (Mean age = 9...

INTRODUCTION: Nurse practitioners (NPs) are authorized to manage concussion recovery. Common adolescent activities, like driving, are omitted from guidelines. We investigated NP driving guidance and its clinical basis for restriction or limitation following adolescent concussion. METHOD: NPs completed a web-based questionnaire after viewing a scripted video scenario of an adolescent describing symptoms of concussion occurring 72 hours prior. Driving recommendations were collected using an open-ended query, then coded and categorized by type, characteristic, and basis...

INTRODUCTION: Measurement of cotinine, a biomarker of tobacco smoke exposure, can accurately identify children at risk of health consequences from secondhand smoke. This study reports perspectives from pediatric health care providers on incorporating routine cotinine screening into well-child visits. METHODS: Key informant interviews (N = 28) were conducted with pediatric primary care providers: physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses. RESULTS: Themes identified in the interviews included the following: (a) Cotinine screening would assess children's exposure to tobacco smoke more reliably than parental report; (b) Addressing positive cotinine screening results might require additional resources; (c) Wheezing and a history of emergency department visits increased the salience of cotinine screening; and (d) A better understanding of the significance of specific cotinine test values would improve utility...

INTRODUCTION: Emerging adults (EA) with disordered eating behaviors (DEBs) and Type 1 diabetes (T1D) are at increased risk for severe complications of T1D, and these behaviors have been reported in EA women with T1D. Few studies, though, have included men. This study assessed the prevalence of DEB in both EA men and women with T1D. METHODS: DEB was measured with the diabetes-specific Diabetes Eating Problem Survey-Revised (DEPS-R); scores of 20 or greater indicate need for further evaluation for DEB...

INTRODUCTION: One third of the approximately 23,000 undergraduates in the United States are overweight or obese. College students appear to be more vulnerable to disproportionate weight gain during this time. METHOD: Cross-sectional. Diet, body mass index, and appetitive responsiveness were assessed in 80 undergraduates enrolled in three different meal plans, unlimited access, points, and none. RESULTS: Appetitive responsiveness was positively correlated with fat (r = 0...

Incidence rates of pertussis have been higher over the past 5 years than at any time since the first pertussis vaccine became widely available, with infants younger than 12 months old being particularly vulnerable. Once infected, infants may experience severe respiratory symptoms and incur high rates of hospitalization, and they account for the vast majority of pertussis-related deaths each year. With the diminished effectiveness of herd immunity, experts increasingly rely on cocooning to protect at-risk populations against infectious diseases such as pertussis...

Nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) in youth is a major public health concern. A retrospective chart review was conducted within a hospital system to examine (a) youth self-reports of reasons for engaging in NSSI and (b) additional contextual circumstances that may contribute to youth NSSI. Detailed history, physical examination, and treatment/discharge data were extracted by thoroughly reviewing all electronic documents in each medical record. The final sample (N = 135) were predominantly female (71.1%), and well over half (63...

INTRODUCTION: Extensive evidence exists regarding health risks posed by children's exposure to second-hand smoke, and there is increasing evidence concerning the risks of third-hand smoke. This evidence is most meaningful if the public is aware of these risks and can help curb childhood exposure. METHODS: Participants were selected at an academic medical center and asked to complete a survey. Responses were compared based on respondents' smoking status and the presence or absence of children in their homes...

Nurse practitioners (NPs) have been providing high-quality and safe patient care for a few decades, and evidence showing the extent of their impact is emerging. This article describes the implementation of a 24/7 NP patient care model on an inpatient pediatric general surgery service in a tertiary free-standing Children's Hospital in the Northeastern United States. The literature shows that there is limited evidence regarding NP models of care and their effect on patient outcomes. In response to policy changes leading to reduction of resident work hours and a more acute and complex inpatient pediatric general surgery patient population, our existing NP model evolved into a 24/7 NP Model in June 2011...
