Background: The existing training pathways to become a pediatric cardiac intensivist are very variable with physicians coming from varied training backgrounds of pediatric critical care, pediatric cardiology, neonatology, or pediatric anesthesia. Aim: To evaluate the impact of cardiac Intensive Care Unit (ICU) attending physician training background on outcomes in children undergoing heart operations. Setting and Design: Patients in the age group from 1 day to 18 years undergoing heart operation at a Pediatric Health Information System database participating hospital were included (2010-2015)...

The increase in pediatric cardiac surgical procedures and establishment of the practice of pediatric cardiac intensive care has created the need for physicians with advanced and specialized knowledge and training. Current training pathways to become a pediatric cardiac intensivist have a great deal of variability and have unique strengths and weaknesses with influences from critical care, cardiology, neonatology, anesthesiology, and cardiac surgery. Such variability has created much confusion among trainees looking to pursue a career in our specialized field...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) preparations are scarce biological products used for replacement or immunomodulatory effects. Guidelines have been issued by regulatory health authorities to ensure provision of the products for patients who are in severe need. OBJECTIVES: The study aimed at description of the pattern of IVIG use (label/off label indications), adverse effects observed, reason for choice of IVIG among other modalities and efficacy in a pediatric intensive care setting...

The practice of pediatric cardiac intensive care depends on a collaborative effort from all disciplines involved in the care of critically ill pediatric patients with cardiovascular disease. The 8th International Conference of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society was reflective of this collaborative effort as experts from several disciplines, including neonatology, critical care, cardiology, neurology, anesthesia and surgery, gathered to discuss the latest advances in the care of pediatric cardiovascular disease, beginning with the fetus and extending into adulthood...

Pediatric echocardiography as performed and interpreted by pediatric cardiologists provides details of cardiac structure and function as well as hemodynamic data. Functional echocardiography, in contrast to echocardiography as performed by the cardiologist, is the bedside use of cardiac ultrasound to follow functional and hemodynamic changes longitudinally. Data reflecting cardiac function and systemic and pulmonary blood flow in critically ill preterm and term neonates can be monitored using this method. Functional echocardiography is being developed and driven by neonatologists as an extension of their clinical skills...

Intensive care services are expensive. The experience of developing a combined paediatric and neonatal intensive care unit (ICU) in a regional hospital is reported with reference to the provision of renal support for the critically ill patients. The combined unit is staffed by a team of paediatric intensivists, each of whom has special interest in a subspecialty, including cardiology, respiratory medicine, nephrology and neonatology. In the past 7 years, renal replacement therapy (peritoneal dialysis and haemofiltration) was provided to 40 patients, with comparable mortality and complication rates to other reports...
