Sepsis Definitions: I Know It When I See It*
Over the past 3 –4 decades, efforts have been made to define sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock more objectively. For purposes of this editorial, “sepsis” will include the full spectrum of sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock. Why is sepsis so difficult to define? There are many signs, symptoms, and l aboratory abnormalities that commonly occur in patients with sepsis, but there is not a single “gold standard” definition or criterion that clinicians can all agree on and that facilitates the prompt recognition of the syndrome. The manifestations of sepsis are highly variable, and an inf...

My Child Is Turning 12. Which COVID-19 Vaccine Should They Get?
If you’re the parent of a tween who’s still unvaccinated for COVID-19, you’re not alone. In the United States, only 16% of kids ages 5 to 11 are fully vaccinated and 25% are partially vaccinated, according to Jan. 3 data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Now is the time to change that, experts say. As COVID-19 continues to spike across the country, low vaccination rates in this age group have resulted in record-high hospitalizations. COVID-19 vaccines ward off serious illness from the disease and reduce the odds of contracting Kawasaki disease (also known as Multisystem Inflammato...

How Much Should a Newborn Eat?
Discussion A serving size and a portion are not the same thing. A serving size is a specific measured amount of food. This is cited on the product label or readily available resources such as cookbooks or the Internet (an example can be found here.) A portion is the amount chosen to be served or eaten by a person. They can be the same but may not be the same. For example, 4 ounces of cereal is a common serving size, but an adult may often eat more than this as their portion. Children especially need appropriate portion sizes to match their age and body size. A good general rule for any age is a portion is the size of the p...
