BrainAbstractQuantitative physicochemical models of human acid–base physiology filled a void between clinical acid–base analysis and general fluid physiology. Established approaches centred on the Henderson–Hasselbalch (HH) equation allow satisfactory bedside exploration of respiratory perturbations, but do not fully elucidate mechanisms of common non-respiratory ‘metabolic’ components. Though useful at the bedside, commonly used ‘rules...

The primary outcome was the proportion of patients who had a pathogen isolated from peritoneal fluid culture that was not susceptible to the recommended empiric therapy.

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Journal of Pediatric Surgery Case ReportsAuthor(s): Andrea Sarzosa, Jacob Rodríguez, Edy Quizhpe, Carlos Espinosa, Enrique TeranAbstractNeonatal appendicitis is a rare and difficult to diagnose condition but with a high mortality. Co-morbidities as necrotizing enterocolitis or Hirschsprung disease are commonly associated, but other conditions as fetal hypoxia or prematurity are considered also as risk factors. Here is reported a case of neonatal appendicitis in a baby from a woman with preeclampsia, suggesting it might also be another prenatal condition to be...
