BACKGROUND Glycogen storage disease type I (GSD I) causes severe hypoglycemia during periods of fasting since both glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis are impaired. Primary treatment in North America consists of cornstarch therapy every 3-4 h. Waxy maize extended release cornstarch was introduced for maintaining overnight glucose concentrations, but no(More)

Critical samples, however, will(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to assess the proportions of injured children transported to trauma centers by different transportation modes and evaluate the effect of transportation mode on inter-facility transfer rates using the US national trauma registry. METHODS We analyzed data from the 2007-2012 National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) to study trends of EMS(More)
