Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease in infancy: a review based on international guidelines.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease in infancy: a review based on international guidelines. Med J Aust. 2019 Dec 13;: Authors: Lopez RN, Lemberg DA Abstract Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) in infancy is common, physiological and self-limiting; it is distinguished from gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) by the presence of organic complications and/or troublesome symptomatology. GORD is more common in infants with certain comorbidities, including history of prematurity, neurological impairment, repaired oesophageal atresia, repaired diaphragmatic hernia, and cystic fibrosis. The diagnosis of GORD in infants relies almost exclusively on clinical history and examination findings; the role of invasive testing and empirical trials of therapy remains unclear. The assessment of infants with vomiting and regurgitation should seek out red flags and not be attributed to GOR or GORD without considered evaluation. Investigations should be considered to exclude other pathology in infants referred with suspected GORD, and occasionally to confirm the diagnosis. Management of GORD should follow a step-wise approach that uses non-pharmacological options where possible and pharmacological interventions only where necessary.

Glucose based DES assisted organic synthesis is a simple, clean, efficient and environmentally friendly method. In this work five kinds of biologically active organic heterocyclic 2,6-diarylpiperidin-4-one derivatives such as 3-ethyl-2,6-di(4-methoxyphenyl)piperidin-4-one (A), 3-methyl-2,6–di(4-methoxyphenyl)piperidin-4-one (B), 3,5...

XRD results reveal the formation of pyrochlore cubic single phase in BT2 while a mixed-phase consisting of pyrochlore cubic and perovskite Aurivillius orthorhombic phase (Bi4Ti3O12) in BT2/BT4. The nanocomposite sample BT2/BT4 shows the smaller crystallite size (∼30 nm) and larger microstrain than BT2 nanoparticl...

The exploration of cost-effective alternative electrocatalysts with the ability to drive hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is extremely significant to promote overall water splitting. Herein, ultrathin CoSe2/CNTs nanocomposites have been synthesized by a facile two-step method, wh...

This study focuses on the measurements of the mechanical, thermal and acoustic performances of three Australian hemp: unretted hemp hurd, retted hemp hurd, and hemp fines. Hemp hurd is usually used in non-load bearing building walls, and hemp fine, which is the by-product of hemp manufacturing industry, is usually incorporated into a render. The experimental results show that the main impact of the retting process is a decrease in bulk density and leading to an improvement in thermal and acoustic properties. Without compaction, the bulk density is ranged from 97 and 118.8 kg.m−3, the max sound absorption coefficient ...
