What Causes Irritability?
Discussion Child abuse or non-accidental trauma is a clinical diagnosis. It is the constellation of history, physical examination, radiographic evaluation, laboratory testing and investigation that determines if child abuse has occurred. Irritability caused by fractures or other trauma can be a presenting symptom of abuse. Fractures can be a presentation but they are also common problems not associated with abuse. Femoral shaft fractures are estimated to account for only 1.6% of all fractures in children, therefore they are potentially more suspicious for child abuse. A review of femur fractures can be found here. A review...

Factors behind the prevalence of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in pediatric wards.
The emergence of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae made the treatment difficult, which has become a significant issue of public health. A sharp increase of carbapenem-resistance rate in Klebsiella pneumoniae was observed in a maternity and child health care hospital in Zunyi, China, in 2014.In 2015 to 2016, carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKp) isolated from all the clinical samples were analyzed to identify the carbapenem-resistance genes. They were then fingerprinted in order to determine their genetic relationship. Clinical data such as usage of imipenem in 2012 to 2016 and the nosocomial infection sur...

This study found that pregnancies with antepartum sepsis were associated with higher odds of complications that are associated with placental dysfunction, suggesting that increased antenatal surveillance may be warranted for these patients.

There are no data on pregnancy outcomes among individuals who recover from their infections prior to delivery. Objective: To describe perinatal outcomes among patients with antepartum sepsis...

What Looks Like Acrocyanosis?
Discussion Acrocyanosis is a peripheral vascular disease where the skin and mucous membranes have a persistent, painless, deep-bluish color due to decreased oxygenated blood which usually is benign. The deoxygenated blood can be due to a central cause such as cyanotic congenital heart disease or localized problems often due to vasospasm. Hands and feet are the most common areas affected. It is thought that there is “…vasospasm of the cutaneous arteries, and arterioles along with compensatory dilatation in the capillary and post capillary venules caus[ing] cyanosis and sweating.” Palms and soles may or ma...

Caring for the Caregivers Post-Pandemic
Since March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic was first officially declared, doctors, nurses and other clinicians have stepped up and shouldered burdens they never anticipated. They rose to the challenge magnificently, caring for the ill while protecting themselves and their families. But their commitment to helping others has come, in many cases, at no small cost to themselves. Even many of those who didn’t contract the coronavirus have changed forever. For those who continue to treat patients with ever more virulent strains of the virus, the deluge of need seems unrelenting. And that constant pressure to provide car...
