Helical multi ‐detector CT scan as a tool for diagnosing tracheomalacia in children
ConclusionsMDCT can effectively diagnose TM in the majority of children and can be used as an alternative to FB. In children, the established criterion of CSR ≤0.5 should be replaced by CSR ≤0.7 that seems to be a more appropriate threshold. (Source: Pediatric Pulmonology)

Treprostinil treatment decreases circulating platelet microvesicles and their procoagulant activity in pediatric pulmonary hypertension
ConclusionOur results suggest that treprostinil, besides vasodilation, might exert its beneficial effect through an inhibition of platelet activation, resulting in a decreased number and procoagulant activity of circulating MVs. (Source: Pediatric Pulmonology)

Pediatric patients with home mechanical ventilation: The health services landscape
ConclusionsChildren with HMV assistance receive care from a diverse group of providers with varied team structure. Heterogeneity may reflect patient diversity and provider interest, increasing efficacy but challenging standardization nationwide. Despite team structure variability, similar home care difficulties were universally experienced. Data suggest that the home nursing shortage is a national impediment to quality and efficient discharge with limited community ‐based support for this vulnerable population.

Clinical approach to cardiac pauses in congenital central hypoventilation syndrome
Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) patients may have heart rhythm disorders related to autonomic nervous system dysfunction such as, sinus bradycardia and transient asystole with potentially dramatic syncopal events. The diagnosis of these cardiac alterations may be challenging with conventional periodical Holter monitoring. The case shows how continuous heart rhythm monitoring provided by the implantable cardiac monitor (ICM) may play a crucial role for their early diagnosis and the choice of the appropriate therapeutic intervention.

Maternal vitamin D and E intakes in pregnancy and asthma to age 15 years: A cohort study
This study investigated whether the previously reported associations in this birth cohort between maternal vitamin D and E intakes during pregnancy and childhood wheeze/asthma outcomes at age 5 and 10 years are still evident at age 15 years. In a prospective study of 1924 children recruited in utero, maternal vitamin D and E intakes during pregnancy were assessed by food frequency questionnaire and the children completed raespiratory questionnaire at age 15 years. Treatment for asthma at age 15 was also ascertained using healthcare data. Maternal vitamin D and E intakes were also related to combined childhood asthma data c...
