  • Elevated Lipase Associated With COVID-19 Possibly due to Acute Pancreatitis in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report

    As the global pandemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) advances, the challenge of understanding its wide spectrum of symptoms and sequelae continues to be a priority in the medical world. There are not many case reports on the atypical presenting features of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), especially in the pediatric population.

  • Impact of Oxygen Delivery Patterns on Arterial Oxygen Saturation Among Children

    Adequate oxygenation to treat hypoxia by suitable oxygen delivery pattern is the essence of pediatric critical care medicine. Monitoring oxygen saturation (SpO2) is thus essential in order to decide course of treatment.

  • Arm Swelling From Subclavian Vein Thrombosis: Factor V Leiden Mutation

    Factor V Leiden is a genetic condition that can decrease natural anticoagulant effect in response to activated protein C, increasing thromboembolic risk. We report a 17-year-old man, homozygous for the Factor V Leiden mutation, with sudden onset arm stiffness, pain and swelling caused by a deep vein thrombosis in the subclavian vein.

  • Risks Associated With Conventional Humidifiers Adapted for High-Flow Nasal Cannula Therapy in Human Infants: Results of a Time and Motion Study

    High-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy was introduced into neonatology with novel heating-humidification technology; however, the therapy is currently being applied with adapted conventional humidifiers.

  • Vascular Ring in an Infant With Cystic Fibrosis

Kawasaki Disease Shock Syndrome: A Challenging Diagnosis
The authors present a clinical report of a previously healthy 4-year-old girl, admitted to a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) presenting with a fluid-refractory shock. She was initially admitted in the pediatric emergency department with a history of fever and petechial rash and an initial diagnosis of invasive meningococcal disease was placed.

Primary Care Referral Perspectives in Pediatric Failure to Thrive and Outcomes From a Diagnostic Clinic
Decades of data demonstrate the overwhelming rates of failure to thrive (FTT) nutritional causes (80-90%) even in patients with complex medical conditions and diagnoses. Primary care providers (PCPs), the initial FTT evaluators, have been underrepresented in the FTT literature, despite their pivotal role in overseeing management. Full Text
