In 2017, Boston Medical Center's general pediatric inpatient unit instituted the novel use of bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP) as "supportive non-invasive ventilation for ACS prevention" (SNAP) to prevent ACS and respiratory decompensation...

BACKGROUND: Accidental and assault gunshot wounds (GSWs) are the second leading cause of injury in the United States for youth ages 1- to 17-years-old, resulting in significant negative effects on pediatric patients' mental health functioning. Despite the critical implications of GSWs, there has yet to be a systematic review synthesizing trends in mental health outcomes for pediatric patients; a gap the present review fills. Additionally, this review identifies evidence-based psychological interventions shown to be effective in the treatment of subclinical symptoms of psychological disorders in the general population...

Patients with complex care needs generally have increased expenses, longer length of hospital stays, an increased need for care management resources during hospitalization, and high readmission rates. Mayo Clinic in Arizona aimed to ensure successful transitions for hospitalized patients with complex care needs to the community by developing a complex care transition team (CCTT) program...

BACKGROUND: Fever is one of the most common clinical symptoms of respiratory diseases in children. Once the child has a fever, parents and caregivers are mainly concerned that the child may have a febrile convulsion. A lack of cognitive ability not only leads to anxiety but also aggravates or delays the time of children's medical treatment and even seriously affects the prognosis because of improper management of fever patients.Therefore, it is necessary to clarify the degree of mastery of knowledge related to febrile convulsions, implement targeted guidance and health education, and ensure that parents and caregivers receive correct and reasonable first aid treatment...

Community-based palliative care (CBPC) models address the growing needs of patients and caregivers with chronic and serious illnesses. From pediatrics to geriatrics, individuals prefer to receive care within their local community and at home. Delivering care at the community level and within the home improves health outcomes, reduces disparities, and supports local economic activity. Various models of CBPC have developed through partnerships with existing services, such as home health agencies, but ongoing challenges and barriers exist for further expansion of specialty palliative care...

This article presents a scoping review of the literature on non-pharmacological interventions to manage medical procedure-induced anxiety in children. Based on this review, the authors propose a framework comprising six strategies for effective non-pharmacological management of medical procedure-induced anxiety in children...
