Applying educational theories into planning a psychomotor learning activity: an undergraduate neonatal resuscitation programme experience.

Arch Argent Pediatr 2019 Apr;117(2):e181-e187

Centro Educativo de la Universidad Médica Internacional, Malaysia.

The Neonatal Resuscitation Programme is a good example of an effective educational intervention that has improved perinatal mortality rates in many countries. This paper shares our experience of planning an undergraduate Neonatal Resuscitation Programme using basic principles of education theory of spiral curriculum, Bloom's taxonomy in planning learning outcomes, Kolb's learning model and Miller's model of clinical assessment. Engaging clinicians in pedagogical theories may not be well aligned with how clinicians traditionally thought they learnt best, yet it is key to improving learning concept and educational intervention outcomes in the healthcare professions.

[Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome due to ingestion of kiwi causing potentially severe unexplained event in a child].

Arch Argent Pediatr 2019 Apr;117(2):e178-e180

Área de Gestión de Pediatría, Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Oviedo, España.

Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a non-IgE food allergy manifesting as profuse, repetitive vomiting, sometimes with diarrhea, leading to dehydration and lethargy that can be severe and lead to shock. Despite the potential severity, awareness of FPIES is low and diagnosis is often delayed, especially in those triggered by solid foods. Presence of vomits and duration of more than 1 minute are the key differential factors to distinguish FPIES from brief resolved unexplained events. Read More

Departamento de Ciencias Básicas, Facultad de Salud, Universidad Industrial de Santander, Grupo de Investigación en Genética Humana UIS, Departamento de Pediatría del Hospital Universitario de Santander. Bucaramanga, Colombia.

Metachromatic leukodystrophy is an uncommon autosomal recessive disease caused by the deficiency of the arylsulfatase A lysosomal enzyme, which causes a progressive demyelin-ation with subsequent neurological manifestations. Between its manifestation forms, the one presenting in late childhood has the worst prognosis. Magnetic resonance plays an important role in the characterization of underlying abnormalities, which makes it possible to rule out other clinical conditions and approximate a diagnosis that is later confirmed by the appropriate molecular studies.

Non-caloric sweeteners: specific characteristics and safety assessment.

Arch Argent Pediatr 2019 02;117(1):e1-e7

Escuela de Nutrición, Facultad de Ciencias Médicas, Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina. Centro de Investigaciones Nutricionales (CINUT), Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Non-caloric sweeteners are food additives that can be added to food and beverages, in substitution of sugar, thus allowing to decrease energy content and free sugars intake. However, many health care professionals have questioned the safety of these additives for human consumption. Therefore, it is crucial that health care professionals become familiar with the characteristics of each non-caloric sweetener (chemical structure, absorption profile, metabolism, and route of excretion) and with the findings of the detailed safety assessments done prior to their approval, so that they can be a reliable source of scientific information for their patients.

Arch Argent Pediatr 2019 02;117(1):52-55

Sección de Gastroenterología, Hepatología y Nutrición Infantil, Servicio de Pediatría.

Objective: To compare the performance of IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (IgA anti-tTG), IgA anti-endomysial antibodies (IgA EMA), and IgA/IgG antibodies against deamidated gliadin peptides (IgA/IgG anti-DGP) for the diagnosis of celiac disease.

Methods: Descriptive study in patients with celiac disease. Anti-DGP (IgA/IgG), IgA EMA, IgA anti-tTG antibodies were measured and an intestinal biopsy was done. Read More

In Latin America, few studies have been done in mupirocin resistance and biofilm formation in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This study investigated mupirocin-resistance in MRSA isolates from pediatric patients with bacteremia and their ability to form biofilm. Antibiotic resistance was analyzed with the Kirby-Bauer test and the broth microdilution method. Read More
