CONTEXT Corticosteroids are commonly given to children undergoing tonsillectomy to reduce postoperative nausea and vomiting; however, they might increase the risk of perioperative and postoperative hemorrhage. OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of dexamethasone on bleeding following tonsillectomy in children. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS A multicenter,(More)
Pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) is a major factor associated with achieving optimum growth and nutritional status in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with pancreatic insufficiency and consequent malabsorption. Currently in Australian CF clinics policies for the usage of PERT vary considerably. This paper highlights the current issues related to(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to describe the development and implementation of the first sustainable, multidisciplinary, pediatric airway surgical mission in an underserved country. METHODS This prospective, qualitative study was conducted for the first 4 Operation Airway missions in Quito, Ecuador. The major goals of the missions were to assist children(More)
The care of the child having ambulatory surgery presents a specific set of challenges to the anesthesia provider. This review focuses on areas of clinical distinction that support the additional attention children often require, and on clinical controversies that require providers to have up-to-date information to guide practice and address parental(More)
OBJECTIVE A pilot study to identify risk factors predicting post-operative complications in children with severe OSA undergoing adenotonsillectomy. METHODS Retrospective review in a tertiary care academic institution. Two-stage least squares regression analysis and instrumental variable analysis to allow for modeling of pre- and peri-operative risk(More)
We tested 22 eyes of 12 diabetic patients without retinopathy for visual loss using four types of Amsler grids. The Amsler grids, in order of decreasing intensity, were the standard white, bright red, fine red, and threshold (through cross-polarizing filters). The threshold grid detected the largest number of scotomas--16 versus 12, seven, and seven,(More)
OBJECTIVE Given the rarity of in-hospital pediatric emergency events, identification of gaps and inefficiencies in the code response can be difficult. In-situ, simulation-based medical education programs can identify unrecognized systems-based challenges. We hypothesized that developing an in-situ, simulation-based pediatric emergency response program would(More)
Estimation of water measurement is of high importance in hydrographic survey activity especially in reservoirs. Because in rainy season there is collection of slurry and mud at the bottom of dam. Because of this the depth of dam may get reduced and hence its capacity is reduced. There are number of techniques to measure the depth and each having its(More)
Pediatric airway surgery presents many significant challenges to the anesthesia provider. The clinical experience of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary serves as a guide in this review to describe the clinical reasoning and perioperative management of the pediatric patient needing airway surgery, with specific emphasis on diagnostic procedures, trauma,(More)
