Patricia A Hickey
This award reflects the high-impact contributions of pediatric critical care nurses that have helped to shape the field. Lessons from an ongoing career in nursing leadership are shared by Dr Patricia Hickey. Four themes are highlighted which include (1) our role models/mentors, (2) our profession and its impact, (3) our teams and environments of excellence, and (4) our bright future. Program and practice excellence does not just happen. It requires strategic thinking, deliberative processes, risk-taking and guts to create and sustain...

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) in infancy poses a surgical challenge. Both two- and three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) can provide detailed information about the mechanism(s) of valve failure and insights into valve adaptation during follow-up. We report two patients who underwent tricuspid valve repair using Gore-Tex neochordae, repairs which were facilitated by and assessed with 3DE. Both infants had less than mild residual TR and no valve tethering at hospital discharge. Furthermore, follow-up 3DEs have helped to confirm valve competence, lack of tethering, and growth of the valve and valve apparatus...

BACKGROUND: Junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET) after congenital heart disease (CHD) surgery is often self-limiting but is associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Contributing factors and impact of time to achieve rate control of JET are poorly described. METHODS: From January 2010 to June 2015, a retrospective, single-center cohort study was performed of children who developed JET after CHD surgery . We classified the cohort into two groups: patients who achieved rate control of JET in ≤24 hours and in >24 hours...

BACKGROUND: We describe the implementation of and outcomes associated with an acuity adaptable care model for pediatric patients undergoing cardiac surgery. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing an index cardiac operation between July 2007 and June 2015 were included. From July 2007 through June 2010, a conventional model existed in which patients moved among units and care teams based on age, severity of illness, and operative status (conventional group). A transitional period existed between July 2010 and June 8, 2012 (transitional group)...

Scimitar syndrome repair represents a challenge due to the high incidence of postoperative pulmonary venous obstruction associated with classic surgical strategies. In situ pericardial rerouting technique has been considered a promising alternative approach due to its simplicity and excellent midterm results. Access to the left atrium can be difficult in young patients with severe dextrocardia and hypoplastic right lung. We describe a modification of the original rerouting technique in which the atrial septum is repositioned in order to create a wide opening in the lateral aspect of the left atrium and ensure an adequate size of the reconstructed pathway...

We reflect upon highlights of a facilitated panel discussion from the 2016 Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society Meeting. The session was designed to explore challenges, share practical clinical experiences, and review ethical underpinnings surrounding decisions to offer intensive, invasive therapies to patients who have a poor prognosis for survival or are likely to be burdened with multiple residual comorbidities if survival is achieved. The discussion panel was representative of a variety of disciplines including pediatric cardiology, cardiac intensive care, nursing, and cardiovascular surgery as well as different health-care delivery systems...

BACKGROUND: Immune abnormalities are common in Fontan patients with protein-losing enteropathy. Limited data exist on immune function of other patients with single ventricle circulation. METHODS: This prospective cohort study evaluated immunologic characteristics of children with single ventricle circulation from neonatal age up to early post-Fontan period. RESULTS: Low leukocyte counts were observed in half of the patients prior to bidirectional Glenn and Fontan surgery...

BACKGROUND: The nursing profession faces continuous transformations demonstrating the importance of professional continuing education to extend knowledge following technological development without impairing quality of care. Nursing assistants and technicians account for nearly 80% of nursing professionals in Brazil and are responsible for uninterrupted patient care. Extensive knowledge improvement is needed to achieve excellence in nursing care. The objective was to develop and evaluate a continuing education program for nursing technicians at a pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PCICU) using a virtual learning environment entitled EDUCATE...

Pediatric cardiac critical care is a new and emerging field. There is no standardization to the current education provided, and high-quality patient outcomes require such standardization. For physicians, this includes fellowship training, specific competencies, and a certification process. For advanced practice providers, a standardized curriculum as well as a certification process is needed. There is evidence that supports a finding that critical care nursing experience may have a positive impact on outcomes from pediatric cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are common birth defects with significant impact on morbidity and mortality. We aimed to compare regional patterns of CHDs in Nigeria using a registry-based approach. METHODS: Children with echocardiography-confirmed CHDs at 17 medical centers across the country were enrolled in a pilot National Pediatric Cardiac Registry from January to December 2014. RESULTS: A total of 1,296 children (52.9% male; median age 0...

This systematic review sought to investigate the current evidence regarding surgical management of primary cardiac tumors in children and adolescents. Twenty-eight studies were deemed eligible, reporting on 745 pediatric patients. Rhabdomyoma was the most prevalent histologic type and echocardiography was the most common diagnostic tool. Cumulative 30-day mortality rate was 6.7%. Rhabdomyomas and teratomas had the highest 30-day mortality. The higher percentage of tumor relapse was noted for myxoma and teratoma...

BACKGROUND: In this study, we aimed to determine lobar distribution, drainage sites, and associated cardiovascular anomalies of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection in pediatric patients using low-dose multidetector computed tomographic angiography. METHODS: Sixty-one cases (27 female, mean age: 4.7 years) with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection diagnosed by multidetector computed tomographic angiography were included in this study. In all patients, multidetector computed tomographic angiography examinations were performed using dual-source 256-slice scanner without sedation...
