  • Transforming the Pediatric Experience: The Story of Child Life
    • Abstract: <p>During the past century, child life programming has evolved into a standard of care for children experiencing life's most challenging events. From pediatric outpatient clinics and dentists' offices to funeral homes and courtrooms, children are now being provided access to professionals that relieve the anxiety and fear associated with emotional and physical pain. Recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics, child life specialists focus on the “strengths and sense of well-being of children while promoting their optimal development and minimizing the adverse effects of children's experiences in health care or other potentially stressful settings.” Armed with a strong background in child development, child life specialists provide therapeutic play experiences and developmentally appropriate language to promote normalcy within an unknown and potentially stressful environment, procedural education and emotional support, coping and pain management techniques, and grief and bereavement support. Child life programming plays an integral role in addressing the psychosocial concerns across the health care continuum and should be included in all general pediatric provider settings as a standard of quality care for young patients. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e345–e351.]</b></p>

  • Adolescent Sleepiness: Causes and Consequences
    • Abstract: <p>Insufficient sleep duration and poor sleep quality are common among adolescents. The multidimensional causes of insufficient sleep duration and poor sleep quality include biological, health-related, environmental, and lifestyle factors. The most common direct consequence of insufficient and/or poor sleep quality is excessive daytime sleepiness, which may contribute to poor academic performance, behavioral health problems, substance use, and drowsy driving. Evaluation of sleepiness includes a detailed sleep history and sleep diary, with polysomnography only required for the assessment of specific sleep disorders. Management involves encouraging healthy sleep practices such as having consistent bed and wake times, limiting caffeine and electronics at night before bed, and eliminating napping, in addition to treating any existing sleep or medical disorders. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e340–e344.]</b></p>

  • Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea in High-Risk Populations: Clinical
    • Abstract: <p>Certain common medical conditions are associated with a higher risk of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A lower threshold for screening is therefore indicated for such patient cohorts. In this article, we briefly discuss the high prevalence of OSA in children born prematurely, and in those with Down syndrome, craniofacial disorders, and neuromuscular disorders. Primary care providers should have an increased index of suspicion for OSA in these children, considering the neurocognitive disability that occurs in these high-risk groups when OSA is left untreated. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e336–e339.]</b></p>

  • Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Asthma: Clinical Implications
    • Abstract: <p>Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and asthma are common conditions in children with preventable long-term consequences. There is significant overlap in symptomatology and pathophysiology for pediatric OSA and asthma. Recent evidence supports clear associations between the two diseases; however, causality has not been demonstrated. Regardless, it is important to recognize the overlap and evaluate for the other condition when one is present. For example, in patients with severe OSA, clinical evaluation for asthma should be considered, including history for typical asthma symptoms and spirometry. For patients with severe or poorly controlled asthma, OSA should be considered as a complicating condition. Clinical history for OSA as well as pediatric sleep questionnaires may be helpful tools in evaluation of the child with severe asthma. To decrease long-term consequences from asthma and OSA in children, clinicians should consider the relationship between these two diseases. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e332–e335.]</b></p>

  • Non-Rapid Eye Movement Arousal Parasomnias in Children
    • Abstract: <p>Parasomnia is a common pediatric sleep disorder that can cause parents or caregivers distress when experienced by their children. Based on the <i>International Classification of Sleep Disorders</i>, parasomnias can be divided into two subgroups: non-rapid eye movement (NREM) parasomnias and rapid eye movement (REM) parasomnias. REM sleep parasomnias include nightmares, REM behavior disorder, and sleep paralysis, whereas NREM sleep parasomnias include disorders of arousal such as confusional arousals, sleepwalking, sleep talking, night terrors, and sleep-related eating disorder. This review focuses on the epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of the most common form of parasomnias—NREM arousal parasomnias. Additionally, this review aims to help clinicians distinguish NREM parasomnias from nocturnal frontal lobe seizures, as this distinction is important to avoid diagnostic delays and inappropriate medication exposure. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e327–e331.]</b></p>

  • Insomnia in Infants and Young Children
    • Abstract: <p>Sleep problems in infants and young children are common and often underdiagnosed. The potential negative outcomes that chronic disrupted sleep can have on a child's daytime functioning, as well as the adverse impact it can have on the family, are well known. There is considerable evidence to support the use of behavioral interventions to treat childhood insomnia. These strategies not only produce reliable and durable positive changes in sleep in most young children, but may also improve child and family well-being without negative effects on a child's social-emotional development. This article serves as a guide to help the pediatric provider identify, evaluate, and treat insomnia in infants and young children. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e321–e326.]</b></p>

  • You Can Reduce Secondhand Smoke Exposure! Prescribing Nicotine Replacement
           in the Pediatrician's Office
    • Abstract: <p>It is universally known that secondhand smoke is detrimental to children's health. There is emerging research about the negative effects of thirdhand smoke as well. Most pediatricians focus on the child's medical evaluation and treatment, without considering other family members as it impacts the child's health. Screening rates for secondhand smoke exposure are low to begin with, and when we find a family member who is smoking, most pediatricians feel comfortable counseling and referring, but many do not know how to prescribe nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). In offering a prescription for NRT, pediatricians can offer tangible, timely treatment to help the family get one step closer to being smoke-free. Additionally, families may see their pediatrician more frequently than their own adult physician, and pediatricians have a unique perspective on how smoking may affect the child's health, and can use this as a motivator for quitting. This article encourages pediatricians to screen for secondhand smoke exposure and prescribe NRT to their patient's family members. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(9):e315–e318.]</b></p>

  • An Overview of Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis
    • Abstract: <p>Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a life-threatening syndrome characterized by a dysregulated hyperinflammatory response associated with aberrant activation of lymphocytes and macrophages that results in hypercytokinemia. It is classically divided into two types: (1) primary or familial HLH and (2) secondary HLH. Familial HLH is generally an autosomal recessive condition, whereas secondary HLH is usually associated with infectious diseases, autoinflammatory and autoimmune diseases (where it is more commonly known as macrophage activation syndrome), malignancy, immunosuppression, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, organ transplantation, HIV infection, and metabolic diseases. Although its clinical presentation is often similar to bacterial sepsis or systemic inflammatory response syndrome, HLH can be life-threatening. As such, it is imperative to recognize and diagnose HLH in a timely manner to optimize care. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann.</i> 2017;46(8):e309–e313.]</b></p>

  • The History of Home Cardiorespiratory Monitoring
    • Abstract: <p>Home cardiorespiratory monitoring has changed significantly since it was first introduced in the 1970s. It has improved from a simple alarm system to a sophisticated piece of equipment capable of monitoring the patient's electrocardiogram, respiratory effort, and oxygen saturations. In addition, the indications for using a monitor have also changed. The home monitor was initially used to reduce the incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Although there were several studies demonstrating the reduction of SIDS rates in communities where apnea programs existed, none was a prospective, double-blinded study or had adequate numbers to be clinically significant. Therefore, the American Academy of Pediatrics took the stance that monitors were not an effective way to reduce SIDS. However, when used appropriately, as part of a complete program (ie, the monitor is just one of many clinically based modalities), by a clinician with expertise in interpreting download tracings, home cardiorespiratory monitoring can be a useful, lifesaving, and economical tool to observe infants who are at increased risk of sudden death or increased morbidity secondary to intermittent hypoxia. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(8):e303–e308.]</b></p>

  • Medicolegal Death Investigation of Sudden Unexpected Infant Deaths
    • Abstract: <p>This review article describes the role of the medicolegal death investigator and medical examiner or coroner (MEC) in the investigations of a sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) beginning with an introduction into the case types that should be investigated and how infant deaths fit into that legal framework. The article also provides an overview of the history of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention SUID investigation guidelines and process. The article concludes with a description of how the MEC correlates the scene investigation with autopsy findings, as well as the role of the MEC in cause of death determinations. There is also a brief discussion on how infant mortality data are captured and subsequently used to decrease infant mortality. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(8):e297–e302.]</b></p>

  • Safe Infant Sleep Practices: Parental Engagement, Education, and Behavior
    • Abstract: <p>Although the incidence of sudden unexpected infant death declined by nearly 50% in the 1990s, there has been little improvement in the past 15 years. Significant disparities in infant sleep practices and sleep-associated death exist, particularly by maternal race/ethnicity. This article provides a brief overview of recent observational and intervention studies related to infant sleep practices to describe the context and motivation for the population-based Study of Attitudes and Factors Effecting Infant Care (SAFE). <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(8):e291–e296.]</b></p>

  • Beyond “Back to Sleep”: Ways to Further Reduce the Risk of
           Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
    • Abstract: <p>Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) remains the leading cause of postneonatal mortality in the United States, despite reduction in rates of more than 50% since the initiation of the "Back to Sleep" (now called "Safe to Sleep") campaign in 1994. In recent years, the rate of decline in SIDS deaths has plateaued, even with the ongoing educational efforts that promote safe sleep and other risk reduction measures. The 2016 American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for reducing the risk of SIDS focus heavily on sleep practices, bedding, and location, but also include factors that often receive less attention (ie, prenatal care, maternal smoking, alcohol and drug use, and childhood vaccinations). This review describes these factors that are less often addressed and identifies interventions that have resulted in positive behavioral changes that not only benefit infants, but also promote the health and well-being of their mothers. <strong>[<em>Pediatr Ann</em>. 2017;46(8):e284–e290.]</strong></p>

  • The Evolving Understanding of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death
    • Abstract: <p>Sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) is the leading cause for post-neonatal mortality in industrialized nations. Case-control studies have identified risk factors for SUID that have shaped research into studies of causation. Most current hypotheses for the mechanisms for SUID contribute to the "SUID sequence"—hypoxia and/or hypercarbia in sleep to which a vulnerable infant fails to respond adequately and that results in death. Reducing vulnerability in infants and promoting safe sleep for infants is important for prevention and requires knowledge of the prevalence of risk factors within the target population and a culturally sensitive approach. <strong>[<em>Pediatr Ann</em>. 2017;46(8):e278–e283.]</strong></p>

  • Talking to Adolescents About Social Media
    • Abstract: <p>I see a large number of adolescents in my clinic with issues related to their social media use. These issues range from lack of sleep, to depression, to cyberbullying, and even sex trafficking, all secondary to constant social media exposure. Pediatricians should ask about social media use when they see children and adolescents who already have access to electronic devices. They should also ask parents about controls that are set in place to monitor social media use, content, and friend connections on those sites. They should ensure that their children know personally everyone they are connected to on social media and that their accounts are always private and not public. This will help reduce many of the issues associated with the potential consequences of social media use. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(8):e274–e276.]</b></p>

  • Pediatric Cellulitis: A Red-Hot Concern
    • Abstract: <p>Cellulitis and other skin and soft tissue infections are a common reason for children to seek care, both in the primary care setting and the emergency department. Cellulitis is a common skin and soft-tissue infection that is usually caused by streptococci bacteria or, less commonly, <em>Staphylococcus aureus</em>. Most children recover quickly from cellulitis, but a small subset will require hospitalization. Practitioners need to be skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of cellulitis, including recognition of the need for inpatient treatment. However, diagnosis of cellulitis, and exclusion of complicated or other more serious infections, can be challenging. Management of these infections has also been highly variable, resulting in some difficulty identifying the ideal treatment regimen. The goal is to use the antibiotic with the narrowest spectrum for the shortest duration necessary to provide clinical improvement. Research to identify the best treatment for pediatric cellulitis will be important moving forward. <strong>[<em>Pediatr Ann</em>. 2017;46(7):e265–e269.]</strong></p>

  • The Cost of Hospital Admission: Brief Resolved Unexplained Events
    • Abstract: <p>The modern health care system continues to expand at a meteoric rate with ever-increasing technological advancements. However, with these advancements come unsustainably rising costs and occasionally unintended, avoidable harm. In this article, we use a brief resolved unexplained event (BRUE) to illustrate how recent guidelines can help physicians practice value in this modern health care system. A BRUE is a common pediatric problem that is seen in ambulatory and emergency department settings. Infants presenting with a BRUE can be separated into low- and high-risk groups per recent guidelines. Most low-risk infants who present with a BRUE can be discharged home with anticipatory guidance, whereas high-risk infants should undergo further testing and admission to determine the cause of their event. <b>[<i>Pediatr Ann</i>. 2017;46(7):e262–e264.]</b></p>
