OBJECTIVE: To evaluate clinical data and associated risk conditions of noncerebral systemic venous thromboembolism (VT), arterial thromboembolism (AT), and intracardiac thromboembolism (ICT) in neonates. STUDY DESIGN: Data analysis of first systemic thromboembolism occurring in 75 live neonates (0-28 days), enrolled in the Italian Registry of Pediatric Thrombosis from neonatology centers between January 2007 and July 2013. RESULTS: Among 75 events, 41 (55%) were VT, 22 (29%) AT, and 12 (16%) ICT; males represented 65%, and 71% were preterm...

Interventional radiology (IR) is an emerging sub-speciality within paediatric medicine. In adult care, IR is largely centred on the management of vascular disease but in paediatric practice, IR applications are varied and increasingly innovative, making this an exciting field to be a part of. IR has a central role both in the day to day care of sick children, from long term IV access provision to feeding tube insertions, and in the acute management of critically ill infants, such as those with overwhelming liver disease, neonatal tumours and vascular malformations...

AIM: During a nursing conference of the Northeaster Piedmont Neonatal Intensive and Subintensive Neonatal Units the error in pediatrics and neonatology was discussed and a follow-up work was proposed with the aim to understand how many, what type of errors and what kind of adverse event they cause in our clinical practice. METHODS: Through an anonymous "detection sheet" we detected the errors made between March 1 and April 30, 2010 in a NICU and 2 Subintensive therapies...

Why attempt a UVC line when intraosseous access is often available and the literature has demonstrated its ease of placement and effectiveness even in neonates? This article is not intended to suggest giving up IO vascular access if you currently have it in your toolbox. The intent was to discuss an alternative to IO vascular access when it fails--for example, when a tibia is fractured during an IO attempt or is not an option for other reasons. The Fast-Cath UVC is another tool in the advance EMS clinician's arsenal that can be easily learned and utilized...

Central venous catheterization is widely used in neonatology. Although ultrasonic guidance for central venous catheter placement is available, complications occur significantly more frequently in infants, especially neonates, than in adults. This study seeks to determine the characteristics, topographical conditions, regional relationships, and diameters of the venous structures of the upper extremity and the thoracic central venous system in extremely small preterm neonates (mean: 900 g). Nine formaldehyde-fixed preterm stillborns were prepared (mean 27 2/7 weeks' gestational age)...

With advances in neonatology, there is an increasing need for central vascular access in extremely small (<1,000 g) premature infants. Although the use of peripherally inserted central venous lines have become common practice, surgeons still frequently perform central venous line placements via cut-down in difficult access patients. The advantages of general anesthesia for vascular access procedures are obvious for optimal pain control and ideal operative exposure; however, extremely premature infants are at significant risk for prolonged endotracheal intubation with postoperative apneas...

BACKGROUND: Morbidity related to ineffective resuscitation and stabilization of premature infants is increased when delivery occurs outside tertiary perinatal centers. The regional neonatal transport team received extensive training to expand their scope of practice to include delivery room resuscitation allowing them to attend high-risk deliveries in community hospitals when maternal transfer was not possible. OBJECTIVE: Compare the resuscitation and stabilization of premature infants when a specialized neonatal retrieval team (SNRT) is in attendance at delivery with immediate resuscitation and stabilization performed by the referral hospital team (RHT)...

The purpose of this study is to compare the speed and ease of establishing newborn emergency vascular access using intraosseous (IO) versus umbilical venous catheterization (UVC). The study is an experimental design. A total of 42 medical students, without prior IO and UVC experience, were recruited as study subjects. All subjects performed the UVC procedure and were randomized (by a coin flip) to perform the IO procedure in one of two models: (1) turkey bone or (2) plastic infant leg. Each subject performed an initial trial for both the IO and UVC procedures without practice ("Inexperienced attempt") and a second trial in both procedures after practice ("Experienced attempt"), such that in total, each subject completed four attempts (two IO and two UVC)...
