Trauma-Informed Care for Hospitalized Adolescents.

Curr Pediatr Rep 2022 Mar 7:1-10. Epub 2022 Mar 7.

Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA USA.

Purpose Of Review: Exposure to trauma accelerates during the adolescence, and due to increased behavioral and psychiatric vulnerability during this developmental period, traumatic events during this time are more likely to cause a lasting impact. In this article, we use three case studies of hospitalized adolescents to illustrate the application of trauma-informed principles of care with this unique population.

Recent Findings: Adolescents today are caught in the crosshairs of two syndemics-racism and other structural inequities and the COVID-19 pandemic. Increased hospitalizations and mental health diagnoses during the past two years signal toxic levels of stress affecting this group. Trauma-informed care promotes health, healing, and equity.

Summary: This concept of the "trauma-informed approach" is still novel; through examples and practice, providers can learn to universally apply the trauma-informed care framework to every patient encounter to address the harmful effects of trauma and promote recovery and resilience.

Anthropology in the PICU: Addressing the Local Worlds of Families in an Otherwise Foreign Land.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2022 03;23(3):e186-e188

Division of Medical Critical Care, Department of Pediatrics, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA.

Critical illness is a scary, and often previously unknown, experience for children and their families. To best assist pediatric critically ill patients and their caregivers, it is imperative to understand their local worlds outside of the PICU and what matters to them most. Anthropology, and its ethnographic lens and mode of inquiry, is an underutilized aspect of multidisciplinary care and research in pediatric critical care but has much to offer as exemplified herein.

Chest pain and anxiety in an adolescent: an unusual etiology.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2014 Nov;30(11):812-3

From the Departments of *Division of Critical Care Medicine, Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA; †Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, Rapid City Regional Hospital and Founders Park Clinic, Rapid City, SD; and ‡Emergency Medicine, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.

Chest pain in children is commonly caused by benign etiologies but may be caused by conditions that carry significant morbidity if not treated. Emergency medicine physicians must identify the patients that require further evaluation and treatment. We describe a case of a 13-year-old boy with 10 months of progressive chest pain that had been attributed to anxiety and was ultimately diagnosed as an esophageal duplication cyst requiring surgical repair.
