Derivation and Validation of the Critical Bronchiolitis Score for the PICU

CONCLUSIONS: The Critical Bronchiolitis Score performed better than PICU mortality-based scores in measuring expected duration of ICU-level respiratory support and ICU length of stay. This score may have utility to enrich interventional trials and adjust for illness severity in observational studies in this very common PICU condition.

We present a case of SJS in a patient with adult polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and color vision deficiency. The patient presented to our clinic for evaluation for progressively worsening dyspnea and cough. His imaging revealed a hypoplastic left lung with fibrosis, cystic airway disease, and a small left pulmonary artery. His spirometry revealed an obstructive defect. A Ventilation-Perfusion scan (V/Q) showed a significant reduction of ventilation and perfusion to his left lung confirming the diagnosis of SJS. Both conditions - SJS and ADPKD-are not pathologically or genetically related and are very rare. Having both c...

CONCLUSIONS: The careful monitoring of patients receiving HFNC therapy is critical. Because these patients are at risk for needing escalated care. We found that low pH values on admission and high pulse rate and respiratory rate observed at the second hour of follow-up period could be predictive factors for HFNC failure.PMID:35023651 | DOI:10.24953/turkjped.2021.06.009

In this study, the protective effects of the P. Radix polysaccharides (PRP) against RSV-induced bronchiolitis in juvenile mice and RSV-induced apoptosis of epithelial HEp-2 cells were investigated. The results showed that PRP obviously decreased the levels of IL-1β, IL-4, IL-6, TNF-α, IFN-γ and TSLP in lung tissues, and reduced the number of inflammatory cells in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of RSV-infected mice. Furthermore, it reduced the apoptosis of RSV-infected HEp-2 cells and remarkably inhibited the mRNA expressions of RSV L gene, which indicated that PRP affected transcription and replicatio...
