What Are Pulmonary Embolism Risk Factors?
Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports.

Using an eLearning Module to Facilitate Sepsis Knowledge Acquisition Across Multiple Institutions and Learner Disciplines
The objective of this multicenter study was to assess knowledge acquisition and retention for pediatric sepsis across multiple health care provider roles, using an adaptive and interactive eLearning module. An eLearning module improved immediate and delayed pediatric sepsis knowledge in pediatric health care providers across multiple institutions and provider roles. Immediate knowledge gain was meaningful as indicated by effect sizes, although by the time of the delayed test, the effect was smaller. This module fills an important gap in currently available pediatric sepsis education. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

In the Scheetz household, back-to-school anxiety reached new heights this fall. Jami Scheetz’s 15-year-old son Devon, who has severe asthma, kicked a brutal vaping habit over the summer, with help from a nicotine patch.

Though Scheetz, who lives in Sellersville, Pa., says her son is now fine, she can’t shake thoughts of kids who have been hospitalized or died after using e-cigarettes. “Vaping scares me more [than smoking], because they ...
