BACKGROUND: The indications for surgical airway management in patients with Robin sequence (RS) and severe airway obstruction have not been well defined. While certain patients with RS clearly require surgical airway intervention and other patients just as clearly can be managed with conservative measures alone, a significant proportion of patients with RS present with a more confusing and ambiguous clinical course. The purpose of this study was to describe the clinical features and objective findings of patients with RS whose airways were successfully managed without surgical intervention...

Given the genuine gaps in the availability of clinical sleep services for children, sleep coaching as a field has emerged and appears to be significantly increasing. Sleep coaches are typically individuals who provide individualized services, often via the Internet or phone, to families of infants and young children (and increasingly to older children, adolescents, and adults as well) with sleep problems. At this time, there is no universally accepted definition of sleep coach, nor are there clear guidelines regarding educational background, training requirements, scope of practice, or credentialing...

The feed and wrap technique refers to the use of feeding and swaddling to induce natural sleep in infants. It can be used prior to an magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, avoiding sedation or anesthesia. We performed a retrospective review of feed and wrap MRI scans in infants 3 months or younger over a 2-year period at our center (279 scans) to evaluate the efficacy of this technique. Of scan results reviewed, 79% addressed the clinical question, 20% partially addressed the clinical question, and 1% were technically inadequate...

Sleep problems are frequently seen during the postpartum period. Some mothers need to use sedative agents for insomnia. Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant that has sedative effects. Despite no adverse reports, data on safety for the maternal use of this medication on breastfed infants are limited. This case report presents severe sedation and poor feeding in the breastfed baby of a woman using amitriptyline at 10 mg/day.

Computerized wheeze detection is an established method for objective assessment of respiratory sounds. In infants, this method has been used to detect subclinical airway obstruction and to monitor treatment effects. The optimal location for the acoustic sensors, however, is unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of respiratory sound recordings in young infants, and to determine whether the position of the sensor affected computerized wheeze detection. Respiratory sounds were recorded over the left lateral chest wall and the trachea in 112 sleeping infants (median postmenstrual age: 49 weeks) on 129 test occasions using an automatic wheeze detection device (PulmoTrack(®))...

BACKGROUND: Severe obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a life threatening condition associated with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) due to mandibular micrognathia and glossoptosis. Often these patients require tracheostomy at an early age which has high morbidity. Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is an accepted method of treatment for patients with hypoplastic mandible to achieve mandibular lengthening without need for a bone graft. It has also been used in respiratory distressed neonates and infants to avoid tracheostomy...

BACKGROUND: Depression during pregnancy is a common and high impact disease. Generally, 5-10 % of pregnant women suffer from depression. Children who have been exposed to maternal depression during pregnancy have a higher risk of adverse birth outcomes and more often show cognitive, emotional and behavioural problems. Therefore, early detection and treatment of antepartum depression is necessary. Both psychotherapy and antidepressant medication, first choice treatments in a non-pregnant population, have limitations in treating depression during pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the effect of screen time and sleep at a younger age on current sleep outcome in infants. We therefore examined whether sleep parameter at a younger age and daily exposure of electronic media could predict sleep outcomes in 12-month-old Thai infants. METHODS: There were 208 typically developing infants enrolled since 6 months old. Each main caregiver completed a sleep diary and was interviewed for the infant's screen exposure at 6 and 12 months of age...

"Sudden Infant Death syndrome" (SIDS) represents the commonest category of infant death after the first month of life. As genome scale sequencing greatly facilitates the identification of new candidate disease variants, the challenges of ascribing causation to these variants persists. In order to determine the extent to which SIDS occurs in related individuals and their pedigree structure we undertook an analysis of SIDS using the Utah Population Database, recording, for example, evidence of enrichment for genetic causation following the back-to-sleep recommendations of 1992 and 1994...
