IMPORTANCE A strong association between infant bed sharing and sudden infant death syndrome or unintentional sleep-related death in infants has been established. Occurrences of unintentional sleep-related deaths among infants appear to be increasing. OBJECTIVES To determine the trends and factors associated with infant bed sharing from 1993 through 2010,(More)
There is significant controversy about the role of bronchodilator therapy for wheezing in infants. A double-blind, randomized trial of subcutaneous epinephrine upsilon normal saline was conducted in children less than 24 months of age evaluated at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

Twenty patients with symptoms present for an average of 21.1 months and who in most cases had been treated by several conservative techniques for chronic tennis elbow were diagnosed as having radial tunnel syndrome, as originally described by Roles and Maudsley. Release of the tunnel was followed by eventual relief in 19 instances (95%).
One hundred cases of osteosynthesis done by the use of intraosseous wiring are presented. Two techniques of wiring are described, one used in transverse fractures and arthrodeses in which an additional Kirschner wire is employed, the other in which No. 0 monofilament wire can be placed perpendicular to the line of osteosynthesis. Forty-seven fractures were(More)

A study was made of the results of immediate repair and controlled mobilization in 156 severed flexor tendons in 68 patients occuring over an 18-month period. Eight patients with 16 tendon injuries could not be followed. Results were obtained from examinations done 6 weeks to 18 months (mean, 5.3 months) after repair. Thirty-one of the 60 patients were less(More)
Defining replantation as the restoration of a completely amputated part as opposed to simply restoring circulation to an incompletely severed part, the results of replantation of 86 completely amputated parts in 71 patients performed from January, 1970, to December, 1975, were studied. Twenty-eight, or 32.5 percent, were the result of sharp severances of(More)
CONTEXT Home monitors designed to identify cardiorespiratory events are frequently used in infants at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), but the efficacy of such devices for this use is unproven. OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that preterm infants, siblings of infants who died of SIDS, and infants who have experienced an idiopathic,(More)
