Importance  The quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) affects hemodynamics, survival, and neurological outcomes following pediatric cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA). Most health care professionals fail to perform CPR within established American Heart Association guidelines.

Objective  To determine whether “just-in-time” (JIT) CPR training with visual feedback (VisF) before CPA ...

The ability to provide long-term antibiotic therapy for acute osteomyelitis was revolutionized by the use of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs). Peripherally inserted central catheters provided an alternative for children to receive antibiotic therapy outside the health care setting, which reduced their hospital length of stay and improved their quality ...

Importance  Postdischarge treatment of acute osteomyelitis in children requires weeks of antibiotic therapy, which can be administered orally or intravenously via a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC). The catheters carry a risk for serious complications, but limited evidence exists on the effectiveness of oral therapy.

Importance  A number of interventions for at-risk children have shown benefits for children’s hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activity immediately after treatment. It is critical to examine whether such changes are maintained over time, given that physiological regulation is implicated in later mental and physical health outcomes.
