We present the case of a 14-year-old boy with obesity, hypertension, and chronic loperamide abuse who presented to our facility with symptoms of opioid withdrawal and type 1 Brugada pattern on an electrocardiogram. He was treated for anxiety and withdrawal. There were no documented dysrhythmias. His Brugada pattern resolved by hospital day 5 and remained resolved 12 days postadmission. Genetic testing revealed a heterozygous missense mutation in the SCN5A gene (c. 5038G>A, p. Ala1680Thr), which has been reported in association with Brugada syndrome...

Background: There are few clinical trials that assess the efficacy of antihistamines in very young children. Rupatadine is a second-generation antihistamine indicated for the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR) and urticaria. In this study, AR symptoms were evaluated before and after daily 1 mg/mL rupatadine oral solution administration in 2-5-year-old children. Methods: A multicenter open-label study was carried out in 2-5-year-old children with AR. Safety assessments were collected during the study including spontaneous adverse events, vital signs, and electrocardiogram (QTc interval)...

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a magnetic tracking and electrocardiogram-based tip confirmation system (TCS) (Sherlock 3CG Tip Confirmation System; Bard, Covington, GA) permits safe and correct placement of a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) in the pediatric population. A total of 144 PICCs were placed using the TCS. After excluding participants for various reasons, 112/121 (92.56%) of PICCs were appropriately placed using the TCS. The TCS confirmed tip location an average of 7 to 18 minutes faster than radiographic imaging...

INTRODUCTION: Noncompaction cardiomyopathy (NCCM) patients may develop sustained ventricular arrhythmias (VA). Currently no known electrocardiogram (ECG) parameter has demonstrated predictive value for VA development. The spatial QRS-T angle has demonstrated ability to identify VA in other cardiomyopathy populations. METHODS: A total of 39 patients with NCCM, defined by compact to non-compact ratio of >2.3 by magnetic resonance imaging, were assessed. The first ECG taken at time of MRI was assessed utilizing the heart rate, the QRS duration (QRSd), the corrected QT interval (QTc), and the spatial QRS-T angle (SPQRS-T angle, three-dimensional angle between the QRS and T-wave vectors) were assessed...

A pregnant female presented at 37 weeks of gestation in labor. The fetus was noted to be tachycardic on fetal monitor. Postnatally, the male neonate was still noted to be tachycardic with heart rates in the low 200 bpm range. EKG was consistent with tachycardia, but rhythm diagnosis was not definitively made. Echocardiogram with M-mode analysis clearly demonstrated 2:1 atrial to ventricular contraction pattern consistent with atrial flutter. The neonate was subsequently transferred to a tertiary pediatric hospital where the diagnosis of atrial flutter was confirmed...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of an R-wave modified tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) myocardial performance index (MPI), or MPI TDI-R, for the assessment of cardiac function in children with congestive heart failure (CHF). MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty children with CHF and 40 normal children were evaluated using the modified pediatric Ross heart failure grading system. TDI recorded the spectrum of diastolic function at the mitral valve annulus to measure the MPI. Twelve-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) measured the R-wave in the QRS complex, resulting in the modified MPI TDI-R...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular false tendons (FT) traverse the ventricular cavity and are thought to have some association with idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia (ILVT). However, reported prevalence of FT varies widely, making correlation difficult. Superior echocardiographic windows of pediatric patients may permit better analysis of FT in ILVT. Our study describes the relationship between FT and ILVT in young patients. METHODS: Retrospective case-control study of 30 ILVT patients with 98 controls compared for FT...

BACKGROUND: Interpretation of pediatric ECGs is limited by lack of accurate sex- and race-specific normal reference values obtained with modern technology for all ages. We sought to obtain contemporary digital ECG measurements in healthy children from North America, to evaluate the effects of sex and race, and to compare our results to commonly used published datasets. METHODS: Digital ECGs (12-lead) were retrospectively collected for children ≤18 years old with normal echocardiograms at 19 centers in the Pediatric Heart Network...

REVIEW
Beau Baum, Oscar Ingaramo, David Chao
Brugada syndrome is an increasingly discussed entity in the emergency medicine and cardiology literature. However, there are few cases reported in the pediatric population. Seizure is a presentation common to pediatric emergency departments. This case report describes the clinical course, workup, and differential diagnosis of a 15-year-old male adolescent with first-time seizure and Brugada pattern on electrocardiogram. A brief review of the literature follows the case presentation.

Arrhythmias have acquired a specific identity in pediatric cardiology, but for pediatric cardiologists it has always been difficult to recognize and treat them. Changes in anatomy and physiology result in electrocardiogram features that differ from the normal adult pattern and vary according to the age of the child. Sinus arrhythmia, ectopic atrial rhythm, "wandering pacemaker," and junctional rhythm can be normal characteristics in children (15%-25% of healthy children can have these rhythms on the electrocardiogram)...

REVIEW
Matthias J Müller, Thomas Paul
Syncope is common in children and adolescents. Neurally mediated syncope including pallid and cyanotic breath holding spells, vagovasal syncope and neurocardiogenic syncope is based on a common pathomechanism and accounts for approximately 75% of cases. A potentially life-threatening cardiac cause of syncope may be present in up to 6%. Detailed history, physical examination and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) allow discrimination between benign and serious syncope in the majority of pediatric patients. Tilt-testing can be useful when diagnosis is unclear...

Introduction: In the United States emergency medical services (EMS) protocols vary widely across jurisdictions. We sought to develop evidence-based recommendations for the prehospital evaluation and treatment of a patient with an acute change in mental status and to compare these recommendations against the current protocols used by the 33 EMS agencies in the State of California. Methods: We performed a literature review of the current evidence in the prehospital treatment of a patient with altered mental status (AMS) and augmented this review with guidelines from various national and international societies to create our evidence-based recommendations...

Purpose: Heart-rate variability (HRV) measured on standard 10-s electrocardiograms (ECGs) has been associated with increased risk of cardiac and all-cause mortality, but age- and sex-dependent normal values have not been established. Since heart rate strongly affects HRV, its effect should be taken into account. We determined a comprehensive set of normal values of heart-rate corrected HRV derived from 10-s ECGs for both children and adults, covering both sexes. Methods: Five population studies in the Netherlands (Pediatric Normal ECG Study, Leiden University Einthoven Science Project, Prevention of Renal and Vascular End-stage Disease Study, Utrecht Health Project, Rotterdam Study) provided 10-s, 12-lead ECGs...
