Ultrasonographic inferior vena cava collapsibility and distensibility indices for detecting the volume status of critically ill pediatric patients

Introduction A point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is a type of bedside ultrasonographic assessment that is applied by the clinician in charge(1). It provides rapid and real-time answers about patients’ clinical problems. The use of POCUS by clinicians has become common in recent years, especially in emergency and intensive care departments(2). Around the world, the number of POCUS training courses intended for pediatric intensive care and emergency care specialists is increasing, and the newest

Yet, surprisingly little is known about the scope of problems driving referrals to child and adolescent psychiatry services to help triage youth with more and less serious forms of psychopathology to the clinician with the most appropriate level of expertise. While some conditions, such as mild forms of pediatric depression and anxiety, can be addressed with psychosocial interventions (3) disorders like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often

Further evidence of the Diagnostic Utility of the Child Behavior Checklist for identifying pediatric Bipolar I Disorder

Introduction Pediatric bipolar (BP) disorder is a prevalent and highly morbid disorder estimated to afflict up to 2% of youth worldwide (1, 2). Youth afflicted with BP disorder are at high risk for a wide range of adverse outcomes including psychiatric hospitalizations, substance use disorders and suicidality (3–7). However, because the diagnosis of pediatric BP disorder requires a level of clinical expertise that is not readily available, improved efforts to help identify children who may have

Relatively few studies have assessed the persistence of the disorder over time.Objective:The main aim of this study was to extend our findings from our 4-year follow-up study examining rates of persistence of pediatric BP-I disorder onto late adolescent years and young adulthood 5 years after our original study.Methods:We conducted a 1-year extension to our

Although most warm red blood cell (RBC) autoantibodies react broadly with panel cells in addition to the patient’s own RBCs, occasionally an autoantibody with specificity for a specific blood group antigen is encountered. Rare cases of warm autoantibodies with specificity for the Kpb antigen of the Kell blood group system have been described.
