INTRODUCTION: Prematurity affects a significant portion (10-12%) of children in the Unites States, with potential for physical, psychological, neurodevelopmental, and behavioral impairments continuing long past the neonatal period. The specific aim of this research was to evaluate pediatric primary and specialty care providers' knowledge and understanding of neurodevelopmental outcomes of children born prematurely. METHODS: Pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) members of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners participated in an online survey using the 33-item Premature Birth Knowledge Scale (PB-KS) to assess their knowledge of current neurodevelopmental outcomes of children born prematurely...

Mechanical ventilation is often required to support the recovery of critically ill children. Critical care nurses must understand the unique needs of the children and design supportive care that is sensitive to their changing physiology, developmental stage, and socioemotional needs. This article describes the unique considerations in providing care for mechanically ventilated children. It addresses invasive and noninvasive ventilation and the needs of long-term ventilated children and family in critical care...

INTRODUCTION: The major paediatric triage systems are primarily based on flow charts involving signs and symptoms for orientation and subjective estimates of the patient's condition. In contrast, the 4-level Paediatric Triage Instrument (PETI) is primarily based on vital parameters and was developed exclusively for paediatric triage in patients with medical symptoms. The aim of this study was to assess the inter-rater reliability of this triage system in children when used by nurses. METHODS: A design was employed in which triage was performed simultaneously and independently by a research nurse and an emergency department (ED) nurse using the PETI...

OBJECTIVES: Determine the accuracy and confidence of critical care medicine providers to identify seizures using amplitude-integrated electroencephalography versus amplitude-integrated electroencephalography combined with color density spectral array electroencephalography (aEEG + CDSA). DESIGN: Tutorial and questionnaire. SETTING: PICU. SUBJECTS: Pediatric critical care providers (attendings, fellows, and nurses). INTERVENTIONS: A standardized powerpoint tutorial on amplitude-integrated electroencephalography and color density spectral array followed by classification of 100 amplitude-integrated electroencephalography images and 100 amplitude-integrated electroencephalography combined with color density spectral array as displaying seizures or not displaying seizures...

INTRODUCTION: Although the interfacility transport (IFT) of critically ill pediatric patients from rural to tertiary health centres may improve outcomes, the impact of IFTs on the rural referring centre is not known. The purpose of this study was to investigate how the IFT of critically ill children affects staffing and functionality of rural emergency departments (EDs) in Manitoba. METHODS: In 2015, surveys were emailed to the medical directors of all 15 regional EDs within 2 hours' travel time from a tertiary pediatric hospital...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin A deficiency is a major public health problem in low and middle income countries. Vitamin A supplementation in children six months of age and older has been found to be beneficial, but no effect of supplementation has been noted for children between one and five months of age. Supplementation during the neonatal period has been suggested to have an impact by increasing body stores in early infancy. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the role of vitamin A supplementation for term neonates in low and middle income countries with respect to prevention of mortality and morbidity...

Healthcare workers (HCWs) pose a risk to themselves and their patients if not protected against vaccine-preventable diseases. Alarmingly, lacking immunity has been reported in several studies. We assessed the immunity against vaccine-preventable diseases in 157 pediatric HCWs in Helsinki Children's Hospital. The HCWs enrolled answered a questionnaire and gave a serum sample. Antibodies were measured with EIA against MMR-diseases, tetanus and diphtheria toxins, Hepatitis B (HBV), Hepatitis A (HAV), varicella zoster and pertussis toxin...

INTRODUCTION: The population of adults with childhood-onset chronic illness is growing across children's hospitals and constitutes a high risk population. National Early Warning Score (NEWS) is among the most recently validated adult early warning scores (EWSs) for early recognition of and response to clinical deterioration. Our aim was to implement and standardize NEWS scoring in 80% of patients age 21 and older admitted to a children's hospital. METHODS: Our intervention was tested on a single unit of our children's hospital...

BACKGROUND: Preparation for hospital discharge after birth became a global concern when hospitals in many developing countries began implementing shorter lengths of stay for uncomplicated deliveries. A mother's perceived readiness for hospital discharge may be influenced by many factors that can ultimately shape postdischarge outcomes. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to explore the antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum predictors of discharge readiness, including nursing educational practices that are predictive of postpartum mothers' perceptions of readiness for hospital discharge...

Childhood asthma is caused by an interaction of genetic and modifiable environmental factors. Health inequities compound these environmental factors. As features of asthma are established during preschool years, these health inequities in urban children with asthma need to be addressed by preschool nurses.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors associated with preferences for long-term care settings in old age individuals in Germany. METHODS: Based on expert interviews and a systematic review, a questionnaire was developed to quantify long-term care preferences...

Nail biting, a common behavior seen in children, is typically short-lived and does not cause significant problems. However, when nail biting remains unresolved, physical and emotional consequences may occur. Exploring the etiological factors and underlying function of nail biting may help providers recommend appropriate interventions.

BACKGROUND: Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common congenital anomalies requiring surgical treatment in children, normally commenced in the first year of life. Following the initiation of a group of multicentre surgical trials of primary surgery, variations in postoperative recovery and management became apparent. An agreement was made for a nurse-led survey in eight surgical centres to document postoperative care and recovery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A postoperative recovery clinical report form was developed to capture relevant data for the children participating in the four arms of the trials...

OBJECTIVE: The survival rate for children with leukemia has increased dramatically since the late 1990s; treatment effects of the disease can be extremely stressful for families. Research on psychological and socioeconomic effects of leukemia treatment had been conducted in Western countries, but little is known within Africa including Kenya. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study with a sample of 62 out of 72 parents of children undergoing leukemia treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital...
