DATA SOURCES Data from five similar clinical trials of atomoxetine in the treatment of children and adolescents with(More)
A 27-week gestation infant developed severe haemorrhagic skin necrosis on the back and buttocks after umbilical arterial catheterisation. Before catheterisation the skin was cleaned with methylated spirits. A blood alcohol level taken 18 hours after catheterisation showed a blood ethanol level of 259 mg/100 ml and a blood methanol level of 26 mg/100 ml. We(More)
PURPOSE To systematically identify and review the currently available evidence on the long-term outcomes of recommended attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) interventions following randomized controlled trials with children and young people. METHOD A systematic search was conducted to identify trials >1 year in length using the following(More)
The barrier properties of the skin were examined in 223 studies in 70 newborn infants of 25 to 41 weeks' gestation, aged from 1 hour to 26 days. Percutaneous drug absorption was studied by observing the blanching response to solutions of 1% and 10% phenylephrine applied to a small area of abdominal skin. Skin water loss was measured at the same site using(More)
Sweating from the palm and sole occurs independently of ambient temperature but is influenced by emotional factors. It thus provides a useful objective measure of emotional state. The development of this emotional sweating in the newborn was investigated by measuring palmar water loss and relating it to the infant's state of arousal. Although 433 individual(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify the ongoing service needs of young people with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). DESIGN A case note review of all children aged 14 and over with a diagnosis of ADHD seen in a paediatric neurodisability clinic. PARTICIPANTS 139 young people aged 14 years and over on 1 September 2007 with a diagnosis of ADHD were(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the broader efficacy (i.e., improvements in quality of life/functional outcomes) of atomoxetine compared with standard current therapy (SCT) in UK paediatric patients with ADHD and to explore clinician/parent/child perceptions of ADHD. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 201 patients with ADHD were randomised into this multi-centre,(More)
The transition process for young physically disabled people (n = 87) was studied in three districts to determine how it varied between schools, and how it was perceived by the disabled and their carers. The experiences of the young people were compared with guidelines for good practice based on relevant legislation. Results showed that young disabled people(More)
The effect of increasing the humidity in incubators was examined in 62 infants of less than 30 weeks' gestation. Thirty three infants nursed in high humidity for two weeks were compared retrospectively with 29 infants from an earlier study who were nursed under plastic bubble blankets or with topical paraffin but without raised humidity. Humidification(More)
