Intraoperative renal support during liver transplantation
The data suggest that intraoperative CRRT during OLT is achievable and safe and may be a valuable adjuvant therapy for those with preoperative AKI.
An Evaluation of Intraoperative Renal Support during Liver Transplantation: A Matched Cohort Study
LT patients selected for intraoperative CRRT more commonly have hemodynamic instability and preoperative acute kidney injury requiring RRT, and despite higher illness severity for cases, there were no differences in complications or mortality.
Indications and outcomes in children receiving renal replacement therapy in pediatric intensive care.
Hemodynamic instability and multiorgan dysfunction syndrome are the most common clinical conditions associated with acute kidney injury in the population studied, and the mortality was lower than previously reported in children and much lower than in the adult population.
Prevalence of laryngomalacia in children presenting with sleep‐disordered breathing
To determine the prevalence of laryngomalacia among children presenting with symptoms of sleep‐disordered breathing (SDB), a large number of children were diagnosed with at least some of the symptoms of SDB.
The Incidence of Laryngospasm with a “No Touch” Extubation Technique After Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy
Evaluated using a clearly defined awake tracheal extubation technique in 20 children undergoing elective tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy, no cases of laryngospasm, oxygen desaturation, or severe coughing occurred in the patient population.
Combined propofol and remifentanil intravenous anesthesia for pediatric patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging
The purpose was to examine the merit of anesthesia and recovery/discharge times of combined remifentanil and propofol total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) in spontaneously breathing children.
Neurodevelopmental outcome following exposure to sedative and analgesic drugs for complex cardiac surgery in infancy *
Objectives/Aim:  To determine whether sedation/analgesia drugs used before, during, and after infant cardiac surgery are associated with neurodevelopmental outcome.
Postoperative respiratory complications and recovery in obese children following adenotonsillectomy for sleep-disordered breathing: A case-control study
Obesity in children significantly increases the risk of respiratory complications following surgery for sleep-disordered breathing and Overnight hospitalization for obese children is recommended.
Threshold Current for an Insulated Epidural Needle in Pediatric Patients
Electrical stimulation may be a useful adjuvant tool to loss of resistance for confirming proper thoracic epidural needle placement and would be higher than the original Tsui test criteria for an epidural catheter (1–10 mA) in the epidural space.
Upper airway findings in children with Down syndrome on sleep nasopharyngoscopy: case-control study.
Generalized pharyngeal collapse dominates in DS children who present with SDB and is independent of age, gender, and BMI.
