Choice of Catheter Size for Infants in Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy: Bigger Is Not Always Better.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation, San Bortolo Hospital, Viale Ferdinando Rodolfi 37, Vicenza, Italy.

Objectives: Renal replacement therapy in infants and small children is the treatment of choice for severe oligoanuric renal dysfunction, with an increasing consensus that early initiation might contribute to preventing acute kidney injury complications. Safer renal replacement therapy devices specifically designed for neonates may contribute to ameliorating outcomes and increasing chances of survival. One of the crucial factors to achieve an effective renal replacement therapy in small infants is adequate vascular access. Read More

Comparing Vasoactive-Inotropic Score Reporting Strategies in the PICU Relative to Mortality Risk.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Dec;19(12):1130-1136

All authors: Section of Critical Care Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.

Objectives: High Vasoactive-Inotropic Scores have demonstrated association with poor outcomes in pediatric cardiac ICUs and are being calculated more frequently in studies of critically ill noncardiac patients. Available studies differ in their approach to assigning Vasoactive-Inotropic Scores, making direct comparisons difficult. The goal of this investigation is to compare multiple approaches to Vasoactive-Inotropic Score assignment to determine their strength of association with mortality in a general pediatric intensive care population.

Outcomes of Children With Critical Bronchiolitis Meeting at Risk for Pediatric Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Criteria.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Division of Critical Care, Department of Pediatrics, Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, Cleveland, OH.

Noninvasive Ventilation During Pediatric and Neonatal Critical Care Transport: A Systematic Review.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Division of Critical Care and Children's Heart Diseases, School of Child and Adolescent Health, Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa.

Objectives: Noninvasive ventilation is increasingly used in neonatal and pediatric patients, but the intensive care transport setting is lagging in terms of availability of noninvasive ventilation for children. The objective of this systematic review of the literature was to answer the question: In children 0 days to 18 years old, who are hospitalized with acute respiratory distress and require critical care transport, is noninvasive ventilation effective and safe during transport?

Data Sources: MEDLINE via PubMed, EMBASE (via Scopus), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, African Index Medicus, Web of Science Citation Index, and the World Health Organization Trials Registry.

Study Selection: Two reviewers independently reviewed all identified studies for eligibility and quality. Read More

Optimum Chest Compression Point for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Children Revisited Using a 3D Coordinate System Imposed on CT: A Retrospective, Cross-Sectional Study.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Nov;19(11):e576-e584

Department of Emergency Medicine, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University School of Medicine, Seongnam, Republic of Korea.

Objectives: The optimum chest compression site (P_optimum) in children is debated: European Resuscitation Council recommends one finger breadth above the xiphisternal joint, whereas American Heart Association proposes the lower sternal half. Using a coordinate system imposed on CT, we aimed to determine the pediatric P_optimum to maximize stroke volume, the key point for successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, while minimizing hepatic injury.

Patterns of Use of Heated Humidified High-Flow Nasal Cannula Therapy in PICUs in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Children's Acute Transport Service, Division of Critical Care, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Objectives: To 1) describe patterns of use of high-flow nasal cannula therapy, 2) examine differences between patients started on high-flow nasal cannula and those started on noninvasive ventilation, and 3) explore whether patients who failed high-flow nasal cannula therapy were different from those who did not.

Design: Retrospective analysis of data collected prospectively by the Paediatric Intensive Care Audit Network.

Setting: All PICUs in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland (n = 34). Read More

Efficacy and Safety of Pediatric Critical Care Physician Telemedicine Involvement in Rapid Response Team and Code Response in a Satellite Facility.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Nov 1. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH.

Objectives: Satellite inpatient facilities of larger children's hospitals often do not have on-site intensivist support. In-house rapid response teams and code teams may be difficult to operationalize in such facilities. We developed a system using telemedicine to provide pediatric intensivist involvement in rapid response team and code teams at the satellite facility of our children's hospital. Read More

A Pilot Study of the Association of Amino-Terminal Pro-B-Type Natriuretic Peptide and Severity of Illness in Pediatric Septic Shock.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Nov 1. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Division of Emergency Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA.

Objectives: Biomarkers that can measure illness severity and predict the risk of delayed recovery may be useful in guiding pediatric septic shock. Amino-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide has not been assessed in pediatric septic patients at the time of presentation to the emergency department prior to any interventions. The primary aim was to assess if emergency department amino-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide is associated with worse outcomes and severity of illness. Read More

Variation in Adjusted Mortality for Medical Admissions to Pediatric Cardiac ICUs.

Pediatr Crit Care Med 2018 Oct 26. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Pediatrics, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine and Benioff Children's Hospital, San Francisco, CA.

Objectives: Pediatric cardiac ICUs should be adept at treating both critical medical and surgical conditions for patients with cardiac disease. There are no case-mix adjusted quality metrics specific to medical cardiac ICU admissions. We aimed to measure case-mix adjusted cardiac ICU medical mortality rates and assess variation across cardiac ICUs in the Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium. Read More
