King's College London School of Medical Education, Guy's Campus, Great Maze Pond, London.

We read with great interest the article by Sofou and Bry (1) on the use of a new tool for oral case presentation in the paediatric emergency department. As medical students in London, we have had varying degrees of experience in assessing patients and presenting cases to our colleagues in clinical settings, especially in the emergency department and, more specifically, the paediatric emergency department This article is protected by copyright.

Parental height modifies the association between linear growth and neurodevelopment in infancy.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Department of Research, Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway.

Aim: To estimate the extent to which maternal and paternal height modify the association between length-for-age Z-score (LAZ) and neurodevelopmental outcomes assessed by the Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development, 3rd Edition (Bayley-III).

Methods: Baseline data from a clinical trial in 600 Nepalese infants aged 6-11 months with LAZ less than -1 were utilized. The primary exposure was the LAZ score, interaction variables were maternal and paternal height and the outcomes were Bayley-III cognitive, language and motor scaled scores. Read More

The Inheritance of Cardiovascular Disease Risk.

Authors:
Mark Hanson

Acta Paediatr 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Institute of Developmental Sciences, University of Southampton and NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre, University Hospital Southampton, SO16 6YD, UK.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is foremost among the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which account for 71% of deaths globally each year. CVD is also prominent among the pre-existing conditions still accounting for nearly 25% of maternal deaths, and is linked to gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. Markers of CVD risk have been reported even in young children, related to prenatal factors such as mother's diet or body composition. Read More

Medical history and clinical examinations are insufficient to exclude vertical human immunodeficiency virus transmission in healthy, at-risk adolescents.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Mar 22. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Department of Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Clinical Immunology, Center for Child and Adolescent Health, Medical Faculty, Heinrich-Heine-University, Düsseldorf, Germany.

Failure to test children for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) when they have HIV-positive mothers is common in both high-income and lower-income settings. Children who are older at the time of their mother's HIV diagnosis face a higher risk of not being tested (1). In low-resource environments, about 25% of vertically HIV-1 infected and untreated children may be expected to reach the age of 13 (2). Read More

Motor performance and cognitive correlates in children cooled for neonatal encephalopathy without cerebral palsy at school age.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Translational Health Sciences, Bristol Medical School, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK.

Aim: To investigate whether motor performance in school-age children without cerebral palsy (CP), cooled for neonatal encephalopathy, is associated with perinatal factors and 18-month developmental scores and to explore relationships between school-age motor and cognitive performance.

Methods: Motor and cognitive performance was assessed in 29 previously cooled children at six to eight years using the Movement Assessment Battery for Children-2 (MABC-2) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-IV). Associations between MABC-2 scores less than/equal (≤) 15th centile and perinatal factors, social/family background, 18-month Bayley-III scores and WISC-IV scores were explored. Read More

The Children's Hospital Iceland, Landspítali - University Hospital, Reykjavik, Iceland.

Aim: Abdominal pain is a frequent reason for paediatric emergency department visits, but specific research is lacking. Our aim was to obtain information on the diagnosis of abdominal pain and what healthcare services children with this condition need.

Methods: This retrospective study focused on patients visiting the emergency department of the Children's Hospital Iceland in 2010 with abdominal pain and any subsequent visits up to 1 January 2015. Read More

Prematurity alters skin conductance and behavioural scoring after acute stress in term-equivalent age infants.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, CHRU de Tours, Tours, France.

Aim: The primary objective was to assess the effect of prematurity at term-equivalent age on skin conductance and behavioural responses to acute stress. The secondary objective was to explore the reliability of skin conductance in detecting neonatal discomfort in preterm and full-term populations.

Methods: Very preterm infants at term-equivalent age and healthy full-term neonates, 34 infants in each group, underwent the hip dysplasia screening test. Read More

Nordic populations are still getting taller - secular changes in height from the 20th to 21st century.

Acta Paediatr 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Physiology/Endocrinology, Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Aim: The study aims to investigate secular changes in adult height among Nordic reference populations during the last four decades and in parents of Swedish study participants, and to study during which growth phase(s) infancy, childhood or puberty changes in height and tempo occurred.

Methods: Length and height data were obtained from publications on populations used as current and previous national height references in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Measurements from birth until adult height and original parental heights of participants in Swedish reference populations born 1956, 1974, and 1990 were used. Read More
