INTRODUCTION The objective of the study was to establish the predictive value of prenatal ultrasound markers for complex gastroschisis (GS) in the first 10 days of life. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this retrospective cohort study over 11 years (2000-2011) of 117 GS cases, the following prenatal ultrasound signs were analyzed at the last second- and(More)
BACKGROUND The acceptability of simulated death has been debated by experts, but there is scarce information regarding trainees' perspective. METHODS Trainees in a large pediatric program were invited to perform mock codes, including pre and post questionnaires. Participants were exposed to 2 mock codes of neonates born pulseless. In the RESUSC scenario,(More)
BACKGROUND Helping trainees develop appropriate clinical reasoning abilities is a challenging goal in an environment where clinical situations are marked by high levels of complexity and unpredictability. The benefit of simulation-based education to assess clinical reasoning skills has rarely been reported. More specifically, it is unclear if clinical(More)
OBJECTIVES Assess impact of neonatal simulation and simulated death on trainees' stress and performance. DESIGN A parallel-group randomized trial (November 2011 to April 2012). SETTING Sainte-Justine University Hospital, Montreal, Canada. SUBJECTS Sixty-two pediatric trainees eligible, 59 consented, and 42 completed the study. INTERVENTIONS Trainees(More)
AIM The safety of SwabCap alcohol impregnated disinfection caps was questioned in our unit because of malfunctions in luer access valves. We examined whether SwabCaps affected the integrity of two luer access valves and were associated with alcohol injected into the lines. METHODS Our bench test study included seven circuits using SmartSite or CARESITE(More)
Visual Mining is typically concerned with the visualization of data and its representation to facilitate the mining aiming at extracting interesting and hidden information. It can also mean the visualization of the results of the mining process with the purpose of deepening the understanding of such results and maximizing its exploitation. However, in(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of the videolaryngoscope (VL) facilitates intubation in adults and children, but experience in neonates is scarce. The objective of this study was to compare the VL with the classic laryngoscope (CL) in acquiring the skill of neonatal endotracheal intubation (ETI) and evaluate transferability of skill from VL to CL. We hypothesize that,(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether the videolaryngoscope (VL) is superior to the classic laryngoscope (CL) in acquiring skill in neonatal endotracheal intubation (ETI) and, once acquired with the VL, whether the skill is transferable to the CL. METHODS This randomized controlled trial, in a level 3 Canadian hospital, recruited junior pediatric residents who(More)
