- A. Koivusalo, R. Korpela, K. Wirtavuori, Satu Piiparinen, R. Rintala, M. Pakarinen
- 1 January 2009
Recovery and outcome were similar after open repair and laparoscopic hernia repair in children, and LaparoscopicHernia repair was associated with increased theater time and postoperative pain. Expand
Paediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrests--epidemiology and outcome.
The Utstein template adopted for adult out-of-hospital cardiac arrests was found applicable also in paediatric cardiac arrests and the outcome of resuscitation and to apply theUtstein template for the paediatric heart arrest population were found applicable. Expand
Utstein style reporting of in-hospital paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
With few exceptions, the Paediatric Utstein Style was found to be applicable for reporting retrospective data from in-hospital cardiac arrests in children and the effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in hospitalized children was determined. Expand
Severe and fatal childhood trauma.
A retrospective study was carried out of 347 severely injured children under 16 years of age, who required intensive care or died during a 10-year period in southern Finland, finding that the majority of all injuries and deaths in children were caused by road traffic accidents. Expand
Morphine-sparing effect of acetaminophen in pediatric day-case surgery.
A single dose of 40 or 60 mg/kg of rectal acetaminophen has a clear morphine-sparing effect in day-case surgery in children if administered at the induction of anesthesia, and children with adequate analgesia with acetamine have less postoperative nausea and vomiting. Expand
Measurement of pain in children with self‐reporting and behavioral assessment
All pain‐rating scales were correlated with each other and they showed a good internal consistency, so any of the now‐employed scales can be used in clinical analgesic studies in children on the condition that the child has comprehended the use of the scale during the preoperative visit. Expand
Acetaminophen Improves Analgesia but Does Not Reduce Opioid Requirement After Major Spine Surgery in Children and Adolescents
IV-administered acetaminophen 90 mg/kg/day, adjuvant to oxycodone, did improve analgesia, but did not diminish oxy codone consumption during 24 hours after major spine surgery in children and adolescents. Expand
Optimally fitted tracheal tubes decrease the probability of postextubation adverse events in children undergoing general anesthesia
Whether there is a certain threshold air leak value beyond which a higher risk for adverse events after removal of TT can be predicted and to define other risk factors related to extubation are determined. Expand
Kinetics and dynamics of postoperative intravenous morphine in children
The pharmacokinetics of intravenous morphine were determined in three groups of children and related to the respiratory rate, arterial PCO2, and postoperative analgesia and children seem to mature very early, because in patients aged 5 to 6 months corresponding parameters similar to those in adults were encountered.

Impact of age, submersion time and water temperature on outcome in near-drowning.
- P. Suominen, C. Baillie, R. Korpela, S. Rautanen, S. Ranta, K. Olkkola
- 1 March 2002
Submersion time was the only independent predictor of survival in linear regression analysis and patients age, water temperature and rectal temperature in the emergency room were not significant predictors of survival. Expand
