Hosp Pediatr 2020 Apr 6;10(4):369-375. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

Pediatric Hospital Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Penn State Children's Hospital, Hershey, Pennsylvania;

In this article, we will review various aspects of long QT syndrome (LQTS) necessary for hospitalists who care for children, adolescents, and young adults who have known LQTS and also review presenting features that should make one consider LQTS as a cause of hospitalization. Pediatric hospitalists care for patients who have suffered near-drowning, unexplained motor vehicular accidents, brief resolved unexpected events, sudden infant death syndrome, recurrent miscarriages, syncope, or seizures. These common conditions can be clinical clues in patients harboring 1 of 16 LQTS genetic mutations. Read More

George Washington Frost Mellen and Resuscitation with Nitrous Oxide in 1847.

J Anesth Hist 2019 04 26;5(2):60-61. Epub 2019 Jun 26.

Treadwell Library, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA 02114.

In The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal of 1847 (later to be called The New England Journal of Medicine), Boston chemist George Washington Frost Mellen claimed that inhaled nitrous oxide gas supports human life in the manner of oxygen gas, and he proposed the use of nitrous oxide in resuscitation from drowning and from carbon monoxide poisoning. The claim was reprinted in at least one dental journal and was long cited as justification for the use of 100% nitrous oxide for inhaled anesthesia. Advocates included anesthesia pioneer and painless dentist Gardner Quincy Colton. Read More

Predictors for hospital admission of asymptomatic to moderately symptomatic children after drowning.

Eur J Pediatr 2019 Sep 16;178(9):1379-1384. Epub 2019 Jul 16.

Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Dana-Dwek Children's Hospital, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, 6 Weizman Street, 6423906, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Drowning is a leading cause of injury-related death worldwide, but there are limited data on the management and disposition of asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic adults and children following a drowning event. Some authors have recommended admission for all drowning victims due to the possibility of respiratory and clinical deterioration in a seemingly well patient. In order to identify predictors for admission and to establish a unified approach for management, we retrospectively collected all children ≤ 16 years old presented following a drowning event to the pediatric ED over a period of 12 years.

Near-drowning: new perspectives for human hypoxic acute kidney injury.

Nephrol Dial Transplant 2020 02;35(2):206-212

Department of Medicine D, Rambam Health Care Campus and Ruth & Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion-IIT, Haifa, Israel.

Concepts regarding hypoxic acute kidney injury (AKI) are derived from widely used warm ischemia-reflow (WIR) models, characterized by extensive proximal tubular injury and associated with profound inflammation. However, there is ample clinical and experimental data indicating that hypoxic AKI may develop without total cessation of renal blood flow, with a different injury pattern that principally affects medullary thick limbs in the outer medulla. This injury pattern likely reflects an imbalance between blood and oxygen supply and oxygen expenditure, principally for tubular transport. Read More

Acute Renal Failure Following Near-Drowning.

Kidney Int Rep 2018 Jul 1;3(4):833-840. Epub 2018 Mar 1.

Internal Medicine, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel.

Introduction: Acute kidney injury associated with near-drowning (ND-AKI) has rarely been reported and its incidence among survivors is unknown. A patient with AKI and urine biomarkers indicating tubular injury led us to assess the occurrence and clinical characteristics of ND-AKI and to evaluate possible causative mechanisms.

Methods: We evaluated medical records of patients rescued from near-drowning in the Mediterranean Sea and treated in a tertiary-level medical center during 2000 to 2017. Read More

Resolving ambiguities in SUDEP classification.

Epilepsia 2018 06 23;59(6):1220-1233. Epub 2018 May 23.

Epilepsy Center, Department of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA.

Objective: To examine the consistency of applying the Nashef et al (2012) criteria to classify sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP).

Methods: We reviewed cases from the North American SUDEP Registry (n = 250) and Medical Examiner Offices (n = 1301: 698 Maryland, 457 New York City, 146 San Diego). Two epileptologists with expertise in SUDEP and epilepsy-related mortality independently reviewed medical records, scene investigation, autopsy, and toxicology and assigned a SUDEP class. Read More

Management of Cold Water-induced Hypothermia: A Simulation Scenario for Layperson Training Delivered via a Mobile Tele-simulation Unit.

Cureus 2017 Dec 26;9(12):e1990. Epub 2017 Dec 26.

Emergency Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) has one of the highest provincial drowning rates in Canada, largely due to the many rural communities located near bodies of water. Factor in the province's cold climate (average NL's freshwater temperature is below 5.4°C)and the prevalence of winter recreational activities among the population, there exists an inherent risk of ice-related injuries and subsequent hypothermia.

Cerebral infections usually occur in lung transplant recipients as well as in immunocompetent patients in the context of near drowning. Voriconazole is the first-line treatment. The diffusion of voriconazole through the blood-brain barrier in the context of cerebral infection and cyclosporine administration is crucial and remains a matter of debate. Read More
