Skin-to-skin contact the first hour after birth and underlying implications and Clinical practice.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Karolinska Institutet.

Aim: This paper integrates clinical expertise to earlier research about the behaviors of the healthy, alert, full-term infant placed skin-to-skin with the mother during the first hour after birth following a non-instrumental vaginal birth.

Method: This state-of-the-art article forms a link within the knowledge-to-action cycle, integrating clinical observations and practice with evidence-based findings to guide clinicians in their work to implement safe uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact the first hours after birth.

Results: Strong scientific research exists about the importance of skin-to-skin in the first hour after birth. Read More

Determinants of Neurodevelopment in Early Childhood - Results from the Copenhagen Prospective Studies on Asthma in Childhood (COPSAC ) Mother-Child Cohort.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

COPSAC, Copenhagen Prospective Studies on Asthma in Childhood, Herlev and Gentofte Hospital, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Aim: The objective of this study was to identify possible pre- and postnatal factors influencing neurodevelopment of the young child.

Sascha Meyer

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

University Children's Hospital of Saarland, Building 9, 66421, Homburg, Germany.

An ever-increasing body of data has demonstrated a close link between poverty and an increased risk for developing chronic non-communicable diseases and psychopathology. A study by Anand et al, published in Acta Paediatrica, studied the effects of socioeconomic adversity on the health on 1,503 pregnant girls and women aged 16-40 years without pregnancy complications or pre-existing conditions, including social, familial and economic factors.

Multi-centre study found that strict adherence to guidelines led to computed tomography scans being overused in children with minor head injuries.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Tergooi Hospital, Department of Paediatrics, Blaricum, Netherlands.

Aim: Our primary aim was to calculate the head computed tomography (CT) scan rate in children with a minor head injury (MHI) when the Dutch National guidelines were followed in clinical practice. The secondary aim was to determine the incidence of CT abnormalities and the guideline predictors associated with traumatic abnormalities.

Methods: We performed a multi-centre, prospective observational cross-sectional study in the emergency departments of six hospitals in The Netherlands between 1 April 2015 and 31 December 2016. Read More

Multifactorial contributions to WINROP to enhance prediction of severe retinopathy of prematurity.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Neonatology, University Hospital of Nancy, Nancy, France.

In the past decade, multiple algorithmic models to predict various diseases of pathological severity have been the focus of the medical and scientific community. In the present context, WINROP is an incomplete model to identify preterm infants at high-risk to develop threshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and needs to be improved from its current predictive parameters (1). ROP is a multifactorial disorder involving numerous pathophysiological processes including high inflammatory state, oxidative stress, disordered metabolic state and impaired angiogenesis. Read More

Own-gender bias in school staff's recognition of children with ADHD.

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Neuroscience, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Unit, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impairments in attention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. A higher proportion of boys than girls are diagnosed with ADHD, although girls seek care for ADHD at an older age, and almost to the same extent as men by adulthood (1). The sex difference in prevalence rates during childhood may hypothetically reflect a bias in referral patterns, where adults perceive and value girls' symptoms differently to boys' symptoms.

Providing clarity around ethical discussion: Development of a neonatal intervention score (NIS).

Acta Paediatr 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Newborn Research, Royal Women's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Aim: To develop a neonatal intervention score to describe the clinical trajectory of a neonate throughout their neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission.

Methods: The Neonatal Intervention Score (NIS) was developed by modifying the Neonatal Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System (NTISS) to reflect illness severity, dependency on life-sustaining interventions and overall life trajectory on a longitudinal basis, rather than illness burden. Validity for longitudinal use within the NICU was tested by calculating the score for 99 preterm babies born less than 28 weeks at predetermined time points throughout their admission to tertiary level care at two institutions.
