Association of ambient extreme heat with pediatric morbidity: a scoping review.

Int J Biometeorol 2022 Jun 25. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Drexel Dornsife School of Public Health, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Global climate change is leading to higher ambient temperatures and more frequent heatwaves. To date, impacts of ambient extreme heat on childhood morbidity have been understudied, although-given children's physiologic susceptibility, with smaller body surface-to-mass ratios, and many years of increasing temperatures ahead-there is an urgent need for better information to inform public health policies and clinical approaches. In this review, we aim to (1) identify pediatric morbidity outcomes previously associated with extreme heat, (2) to identify predisposing co-morbidities which may make children more susceptible to heat-related outcomes, and (3) to map the current body of available literature.

Adherence to pre-operative fasting guidelines and associated factors among pediatric surgical patients in selected public referral hospitals, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: Cross sectional study.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2022 Jun 21;78:103813. Epub 2022 May 21.

School of Medicine, College of Medicine and Health Science, Dire Dawa University, Dire Dawa, Ethiopia.

Background: Fasting before anesthesia is mandatory in children to reduce the complications of regurgitation, vomiting, and aspiration during anesthesia and surgery. Prolonged fasting times have several negative implications in children, because high fluid turnover quickly leads to dehydration, hypotension, metabolic disturbances, and hypoglycemia, resulting in poor anesthetic outcomes.

Aims: This study aimed to assess adherence to preoperative fasting guidelines and associated factors among pediatric patients undergoing elective surgery in Addis Ababa public hospitals in Ethiopia in 2020. Read More

VETgirl, 2950 Busch Lake Boulevard, Tampa, FL 33614, USA.

Pediatric dogs and cats within their first 12 weeks of life have important electrolyte requirements and physiologic considerations that may impact fluid therapy. Fluid requirements are higher in pediatrics, while fluid losses are greater due to underdeveloped physiologic responses. Hydration and volume status are difficult to assess in young animals, and their small size makes intravenous (IV) access difficult to obtain. Read More

Case Report: Novel Homozygous Variant Causing Isolated Hyperchloridrosis in a Chinese Child With Hyponatremia.

Front Pediatr 2022 14;10:820707. Epub 2022 Mar 14.

Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology, Xinxiang Medical University, Xinxiang, China.

Isolated hyperchloridrosis (HYCHL; OMIM 143860) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by biallelic mutations in the gene, which is characterized by abnormally high levels of salt in sweat that can lead to dehydration associated with low levels of sodium in the blood. To date, only four variants of the gene have been identified to be associated with HYCHL. Here, we presented a rare Chinese case of HYCHL in an infant with decreased food intake, mild diarrhea, severe dehydration, and hypovolemic shock who was hospitalized in our department three times.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2022 Mar 1;2022. Epub 2022 Mar 1.

Northwell Health, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, New Hyde Park, New York, USA.

Summary: Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) induce osmotic diuresis by inhibiting the proximal renal tubular reabsorption of the filtered glucose load, which in turn can occasionally lead to severe dehydration and hypotension amidst other adverse effects. We present a case of a 49-year-old man with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) on canagliflozin, a SGLT2i. The patient was brought to the emergency room following a motor vehicle accident. Read More

Improving ondansetron use and oral rehydration instructions for pediatric acute gastroenteritis.

BMJ Open Qual 2022 03;11(1)

Pediatrics, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

In paediatric patients with acute gastroenteritis (AGE), ondansetron use decreases the need for intravenous fluids, reduces hospitalisations and shortens illness duration. Oral rehydration is also known to have excellent outcomes for mild to moderate dehydration secondary to AGE. Although these interventions are recommended in guidelines from international professional societies, baseline data at our clinic showed that <2% of these patients were offered ondansetron, and that few patients received appropriately detailed rehydration instructions.
