In 2006, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association published the 2005 guidelines on neonatal resuscitation. Before the 2005 guidelines, management of a newborn with meconium-stained amniotic fluid included suctioning of the oropharynx and nasopharynx on the perineum after the delivery of the head but before the delivery of the shoulders. The 2005 guidelines did not support this practice because routine intrapartum suctioning does not prevent or alter the course of meconium aspiration syndrome in vigorous newborns...

The use of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) during pulseless resuscitations is considered safe and reliable, and was established as part of the guidelines in out-of-hospital events. Based on extensive studies, the use of the standard AED is now indicated in every age group with a preference of pediatric pad application for small children and babies. If unavailable, adult pads are recommended. We report a case of 2 inappropriate AED shocks that were delivered to a neonate during a pulseless resuscitation after application of adult pads...

This paper describes an LC-MS/MS method to determine the concentration of spironolactone and its metabolites 7-alpha-methylthiospironolactone and canrenone in blood plasma samples. The resulting assay is simple (using protein precipitation for sample preparation) and sensitive (the lower limit of quantification is close to 0.5 ng/ml) while requiring only 50 μl of plasma, making it especially suitable for analyzing samples obtained from pediatric and neonatal patients where sample sizes are limited. The sensitivity is achieved by using ammonium fluoride as an eluent additive, which in our case amplifies the signal from our analytes in the plasma solution on average about 70 times...

Nomograms are essential tools for quantification in pediatric echocardiography. In the last few years, multiple sources highlight that nomograms employed for decades presented significant numerical and methodological limitations. As a result, widely different ranges of normality were generated, thus creating confusion in estimation of several cardiac diseases. New nomograms have recently been generated, overcoming some of the gaps of previous research: wider sample sizes (including neonates/infants), solid statistical/methodological plan, and availability of new data (chamber dimensions, many functional parameters)...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia can be severe or prolonged and warrant exploration into the underlying etiology, which may include genetic assessment of UGT1A1 for inherited disorders (i.e. Crigler-Najjar syndrome or Gilbert syndrome). METHODS: In our reference laboratory, we performed UGT1A1 gene sequencing analysis on 346 pediatric patients referred for a clinical indication of hyperbilirubinemia. RESULTS: Males (n = 241) had significantly higher mean total bilirubin concentration compared to females (n = 105) (9...

BACKGROUND: Sirolimus has recently been shown to be efficacious and tolerable in pediatric patients with complicated vascular anomalies. Nevertheless, dosing information remains very limited especially for neonates and infants. The purpose of this study was to develop an age-appropriate sirolimus starting dosing regimen based on the developmental changes in drug elimination capacity using data collected in neonates and infants. PROCEDURE: A recently developed sirolimus maturation model [Emoto et al...

BACKGROUND: Splenic dysfunction is common in heterotaxy syndrome, and increases the risk of bacteremia and bacteremia related mortality. Despite the risks associated with bacteremia in this setting, best practice guidelines for management of infectious concerns are lacking. We conducted a survey of pediatric cardiologists to characterize practice regarding the diagnosis of splenic dysfunction, approach to antibiotic prophylaxis, and management of possible bacterial infection. METHODS: A 22-item web-based survey was distributed via email to pediatric cardiologists in North America...

EDITORIAL
Detlef Bockenhauer
Hyponatremia is a common complication in neonatal polycystic kidney disease and is thought to be due to water retention. Aquaretics are drugs that promote free water excretion by blocking the arginine vasopressin receptor type 2 (AVPR2) in the collecting duct and thus impair urinary concentration. AVPR2 is also a key stimulant for cyclic AMP production in the collecting duct and in this way promotes cyst proliferation and pathologic kidney growth in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Consequently, the aquaretic tolvaptan is now used to slow down progression of ADPKD in adult patients...

Neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) disease is a serious, life-threatening condition that should be considered in neonates with fever, vesicular rash, culture negative sepsis, and/or seizure activity. Because signs and symptoms of neonatal HSV may closely resemble those of bacterial sepsis, a thorough history and appropriate testing are imperative to accurately confirm the diagnosis. Failure to treat vesicular lesions from HSV in the neonate leads to an approximate 75% chance of progression to disseminated disease and/or meningoencephalitis...

BACKGROUND: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) results from alveolar simplification and abnormal development of alveolar and capillary structure. Survivors of BPD display persistent deficits in airflow and membrane and vascular components of alveolar gas diffusion. Despite being the defining feature of BPD, various neonatal hyperoxia models of BPD have not routinely assessed pulmonary gas diffusion. METHODS: To simulate the most commonly-utilized neonatal hyperoxia models, we exposed neonatal mice to room air or ≥90% hyperoxia during key stages of distal lung development: through the first 4 (saccular), 7 (early alveolar), or 14 (bulk alveolar) postnatal days, followed by a period of recovery in room air until 8 weeks of age when alveolar septation is essentially complete...

BACKGROUND: Laboratory data suggest that newly initiated drug infusions reach steady-state delivery after a significant time lag. Depending on drug and carrier flow rates and the infusion system's common volume, lag times may exceed 20 or more minutes, especially in the neonatal/pediatric critical care environment. This study tested the hypothesis that a computer-executed algorithm controlling infusion pumps in a coordinated fashion predictably hastens the achievement of the intended steady-state drug delivery in a model of neonatal/pediatric drug infusion...

In Japan the 1st paracorporeal ventricular assist device (VAD) was implanted in 1980. Since then, more than 2,000 VADs were used. Small size continuous-flow VAD (CFVAD) was developed in 1990s, which dramatically improved safety and efficacy of long-term support. EVAHEART and DuraHeart, both of which were developed in Japan, were approved for health insurance coverage in 2011, followed by approval of HeartMate II in 2013 and Jarvik 2000 in 2014. Although these approvals were limited for bridge to transplantation, CFVADs gained rapid acceptance for treatment of end-stage heart failure...

Neonates with chronic respiratory failure have uncertain prognosis and can face significant treatment burden. As the trajectory of the illness becomes more concerning, consultation with a pediatric palliative service should be considered, especially as therapeutic options shift from standard to "innovative." Benefits include as follows: supporting emotionally conflicted providers and parents, maintaining transparency in determination of goals, and balancing medical progress with each individual patient's and family's best interests...
