  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine
    • Authors: Jennifer Setlik; MD
      Abstract: As a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physician, I am in awe of what pediatricians face daily and handle without having the resources of a children's hospital at their fingertips. The crises and “triage” in their practice settings are challenging. Some examples include who needs to go to the emergency department (ED), how to handle a life-threating emergency until emergency medical services arrives, and what can be done to prevent emergencies. In serving as guest editor of this issue of Pediatric Annals, I thought about what keeps me up at night and what skills are crucial to my work when

  • Acute Pediatric Pain Management in the Primary Care Office
    • Authors: Sindy Villacres; DO, FAAP
      Abstract: Pain is a chief complaint in more than 50% of patients seen for urgent visists.1 Pain and anxiety are poorly assessed and undertreated in children as compared to adults.2,3 An infant or young child cannot verbalize pain, and even as the child becomes verbal they may have difficulty expressing pain or anxiety. Studies have shown that inadequate management of pain has serious implications for future posttraumatic stress disorder, needle phobia, and vaccination rates.4,5 Painful experiences can adversely affect a child's coping mechanisms and pain perception. The first step in the treatment of

  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome: A Review
    • Authors: Neal Goldberg; MD
      Abstract: In the United States, approximately 4,000 infants die yearly from sleep-related deaths, referred to as sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUIDs).1 These deaths occur suddenly and may be explained or unexplained among infants younger than age 1 year, and they are commonly reported as sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), death from unknown cause, and death from accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed. SIDS comprises approximately one-half of all SUIDs and is characterized by the sudden, unexplained death of a seemingly healthy infant with the cause of death remaining unknown despite a

  • Drowning Prevention in Pediatrics
    • Authors: Katie Conover; BS
      Abstract: The World Health Organization states that “Drowning is the process of experiencing respiratory impairment from submersion or immersion in liquid.”1 Drowning begins when the airway goes below the surface of the water (submersion) or water splashes over the face (immersion), leading to respiratory impairment.2 If clearing the fluid that enters the airway is not possible, conscious breathholding ensues but eventually the drive to inspire overcomes the drive to continue breathholding.2,3 Fluid continues to enter the airway, stimulating cough or laryngospasm while surfactant

  • Pediatric Electrocardiograms for the General Practitioner: The Importance
           of the T-Wave
    • Authors: Gul H. Dadlani; MD
      Abstract: Electrocardiograms (ECGs) are a useful tool in the cardiovascular evaluation of children and adolescents. They are commonly performed in the general pediatric office, in the emergency department during an acute illness, when monitoring medication with potential cardiovascular side effects, for cardiovascular screening in a patient with a systemic disease process, or as part of pre-participation athletic screening. ECGs are frequently requested by pediatric providers without advanced cardiology training whose comfort level and interpretation skills are highly variable and typically based on

  • Primary Care Preparation for Children with Medical Complexity for
           Emergency Encounters in the Community
    • Authors: Amber Hoffman; MD
      Abstract: Advances in knowledge and medical technology as well as changes in societal trends have resulted in a growing number of children with significant health care needs. The primary care provider (PCP) is tasked with providing labor and time intensive management to a small number of patients while additionally providing the majority of children with high volume, routine preventive and acute visits, screening, and anticipatory guidance. These patients also interface with emergency services and hospitals at a higher rate than the typical pediatric patient. Incorporating emergency and disaster

  • Identification and Evaluation of Physical Abuse in Children
    • Authors: Erin F. Hoehn; MD
      Abstract: More than 680,000 children are abused in the United States each year.1 In 2015, an estimated 1,670 children died of abuse and neglect.1 Of all child abuse deaths, 80% occurred in children younger than age 4 years,2 with children in their first year of life having the highest rate of abuse.1 Of the various forms of maltreatment, more than one-half of children were neglected, 17.2% suffered physical abuse, and 8.4% suffered sexual abuse.1 In over three-quarters of child abuse cases, the parent was the perpetrator.1 Child protective services (CPS) investigated 3.4 million cases and of those 2.3

  • Primary Care Office Preparedness for Pediatric Emergencies
    • Authors: Shiva Kalidindi; MD, MPH, MS
      Abstract: Pediatric emergencies do occur in the primary care setting, although infrequently. However, primary care offices and clinics are often not prepared to handle common pediatric emergencies. In one study, 62% of primary care physicians, including both pediatricians and family physicians, in an urban setting report having one patient each week that typically requires emergent stabilization or further hospital treatment.1 Another study surveying 52 pediatric offices found that these offices were seeing two emergencies per month.2 Even primary care offices devoted to pediatrics need to be prepared

  • Behavioral Outbursts in a Child with a Deletion Syndrome, Generalized
           Epilepsy, Global Developmental Delay, and Failure to Thrive
    • Authors: Adam H. Lewis; BS
      Abstract: Feeding challenges are abundant in children with genetic disorders and developmental disabilities. When these obstacles become dramatic enough to impair appropriate nutrition and growth, the result often leads to failure to thrive (FTT). Unfortunately, families and providers may overlook concerns about growth due to the underlying genetic disorder, and as a result, nutritive interventions can be delayed or missed.
      The patient was a 7-year-old girl with 20q13.33 deletion and a history of generalized convulsive epilepsy who presented to the Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic due to

  • Vehicular Hyperthermia—A Highly Preventable and Potentially Fatal
    • Authors: M. Denise Dowd; MD, MPH
      Abstract: In the United States an average of 38 children die each year due to hyperthermia after being left in a motor vehicle. In 2017, a total of 42 children died in such circumstances and all but two were age 3 years or younger.1 After official recommendations from the National Highway Transportation Service Administration (NHTSA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics indicated that the safest place for a baby or a child is in the backseat,2,3 cases of fatal vehicular hyperthermia were noted to have increased; prior to the mid-1990s there were less than 10 deaths per year. The NHTSA is now required

  • Life-Threatening Headaches in Children: Clinical Approach and Therapeutic
    • Authors: Nagma Dalvi; MD
      Abstract: As most children who present to a physician with headache have primary headache disorders (ie, disorders with no underlying identifiable organic brain disease) such as migraine and tension-type headache, life-threatening headaches may go unnoticed by a busy clinician. In this article, we outline some causes of headache that require rapid recognition, as failure to identify them in an expeditious manner may have devastating consequences for the child and carry a heavy medico-legal burden for the pediatrician.
      The first half of this review focuses on headaches that present in a sudden manner,

  • Uncommon Pediatric Primary Headache Disorders
    • Authors: M. Cristina Victorio; MD, FAHS
      Abstract: Headache is a common symptom in children and adolescents that leads to a pediatric clinic consultation. Although migraine and tension-type headaches are more commonly encountered, other primary headache disorders that are typically encountered during adulthood such as cluster headache (CH) can also be seen in the pediatric population. The unusual characteristics of these headache syndromes can be alarming, and it is critical that secondary causes of headache first be ruled out. A primary headache disorder is defined by its clinical features, the lack of identifiable cause after thorough

  • Posttraumatic Headache
    • Authors: Raquel Langdon; MD
      Abstract: Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is common among youth in the United States; it is estimated to occur in almost 700 of 100,000 children younger than age 15 years.1 A recent publication evaluating the point of health care entry for children with concussion within one health network found that 81.9% of patients had their first visit for concussion within the primary care setting, 11.7% in the emergency department (ED), and only 5.2% in specialty care clinics, illustrating that pediatricians and primary care physicians need to be well-equipped to manage mTBI and sequelae.2 One of the most

  • Management of Pediatric Migraine: Current Therapies

      Abstract: Headache is a common presenting complaint to the general pediatrician. The estimated overall prevalence of any headache in children is 58%, with the prevalence of migraine being 8%.1 Shorter duration of migraine headache, bilateral rather than unilateral location, prominence of gastrointestinal symptoms, and difficulty articulating symptoms such as photophobia are more common in pediatric patients with migraine compared to adult migraine sufferers.2 Pediatric migraines pose a high burden to society, but significant relief in children is possible with appropriate intervention.

  • Migraine Variants in Children
    • Authors: A. David Rothner; MD
      Abstract: The terms “migraine variant of childhood,” “paroxysmal disorder of childhood,” and “complicated migraine” are often used interchangeably in clinical practice. Migraine variants or precursors are age-related disorders that occur periodically and have variable neurologic dysfunction. They occur in children who often have other forms of migraines, strong family histories of migraines, or develop migraine at a late age. Complicated migraine, also known as “complex migraine” or “migraine accompagnee,” includes migraine syndromes with episodic, transient, and reversible neurologic dysfunction such

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis in Children
    • Authors: Saumya Pathak; MD
      Abstract: Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a liver disorder that is immune-mediated and progressive in nature. It is characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies (immunoglobulin G [IgG]) and hypergammaglobulinemia.1 The clinical presentation of AIH is very diverse, affecting both children and adults, and more commonly affecting girls and women. AIH has a more aggressive course in the pediatric population, and initiation of early treatment is key to remission and avoidance of development of cirrhosis or liver failure.2 This article discusses the epidemiology, clinical manifestation,

  • Anemia in Childhood
    • Authors: Leah Khan; MD
      Abstract: Anemia can lead to many detrimental outcomes for pediatric patients. Children can become acutely symptomatic with fatigue, headaches, pica, and bruising but they can also be afflicted with neurocognitive detriments that are much longer lasting. The most common cause of anemia in the pediatric population is iron deficiency. Because this is a condition that clinicians see routinely, it can be easy to jump to the obvious diagnosis and treatment without putting much more thought into it. Although this leads to appropriate care in many cases, keeping the broad differential in mind when faced with

  • Headaches in Children
    • Authors: Lalitha Sivaswamy; MD
      Abstract: Headache is one of the most universally experienced ailments; it is rare for a person to have never experienced one. However, certain forms of headache in children, such as migraine, impose not only significant disability due to prolonged periods of pain and school absenteeism, but affect quality of life for the entire family.1 This issue of Pediatric Annals is dedicated to understanding the common and not so common causes of headache in childhood. As practicing clinicians, we must uncover the cause of headache, initiate an appropriate acute or preventive treatment regimen, counsel the family

      Abstract: In this issue of Pediatric Annals, co-guest editors, Drs. Lalitha Sivaswamy and Deepak Kamat, and their colleagues present a series of clinically valuable articles for the pediatric provider about the etiologies, diagnosis, and management of headaches in children and adolescents. As providers, we are all very aware of how common headaches are in our patient population and how challenging establishing the cause and prescribing the appropriate management can be.
