Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury on Pediatric Brain Volume
TLDR
There were significant differences in total DMN volume between the two groups and participants with lesions solely in the MN had lower total MN volume, which was associated with worse functioning on measures of externalizing and internalizing behaviors.
Diffusion Tensor Imaging Analysis of Frontal Lobes in Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Significant group differences were identified, implicating frontal white matter alterations in the injury group that were predictive of later Glasgow Outcome Scale ratings; however, focal lesions were not related to the Glasgow Outcomes Scale ratings.
Analysis of factors influencing outcome in head injury patients: A study of 200 cases
TLDR
Adverse outcomes were associated with Alcoholism, poor GCS presence of comorbidities, and incidence of head injury was more in younger age males, rural population, evening and night time.

Monitoring Children and Elderly Using a WBAN
TLDR
The system assists the person in charge of monitoring the child from 0 to 6 years old and the elderly, showing, through an application installed in the smartphone of the responsible, eventual falls in the elderly and excessive distances of the child and the ambient temperature, as well as other configurations application and sensors used.
PEDIATRIC HEAD TRAUMA: A DESCRIPTION OF CAUSES, NEUROLOGICAL MORBIDITY AND INPATIENT MORTALITY IN A REFERENCE CENTER IN NORTHEASTERN, BRAZIL
TLDR
According to the data from the present study, falls were the main reported cause of pediatric head trauma and 4.6% of victims presented with neurological endpoints of morbid-mortality during the hospital stay and seizure was the most frequent one.

TLDR
Maintenance of central and peripheral immune systems were implicated in the pathophysiological processes of rmTBI, and long-term immune response may play dual roles in injury and repair ofrmTBI.
Pediatric emergency department visits for pedestrian and bicyclist injuries in the US
TLDR
TBI in young pedestrian ED patients was associated with a higher risk of mortality compared to cyclists, suggesting a role for concurrent clinical focus on TBI recovery alongside ongoing efforts to mitigate and prevent motor vehicle crashes with pedestrians and bicyclists.

The impact of evidence-based guideline dissemination for the assessment and treatment of major depression in a managed behavioral health care organization
TLDR
No effects of guideline dissemination are shown as measured by self-report of patients and clinicians and through episode characteristics derived from claims data, despite sentinel effects, suggesting that mental health systems must look to other dissemination strategies to improve adherence to standards of care.

TLDR
The goal with this document was to assimilate the scarce data that exist and present it within an evidencebased framework in order to provide treatment guidelines.
Validity of applying TRISS analysis to paediatric blunt trauma patients managed in a French paediatric level I trauma centre
TLDR
Both adult and paediatric norms were equally good predictors of the probability of survival of injured children, provided that Ws and Zs are used when there is a disparity in the severity match between the study group and the MTOS group.
Complications of emergency tracheal intubation in severely head‐injured children
TLDR
Emergency tracheal intubation can be performed safely in the field, and results in adequate ventilation during transportation of severely injured children, provided that it can been performed by trained physicians using adequate drugs to facilitate intubations.
Effect of out-of-hospital pediatric endotracheal intubation on survival and neurological outcome: a controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
The addition of out-of-hospital ETI to a paramedic scope of practice that already includes BVM did not improve survival or neurological outcome of pediatric patients treated in an urban EMS system.
Neurogenic hypotension in patients with severe head injuries.
TLDR
The risk/benefit ratio of early diuretic use in patients with severe traumatic brain injuries may be too high to support liberal use and the need for a study involving prospective collection of data describing the early blood pressure courses in such patients is strongly supported.
Predictive Factors of Outcome in Severely Traumatized Children
TLDR
To identify risk factors associated with death in traumatized children, prospectively studied 507 consecutive patients admitted to a level I pediatric trauma center over a 3-yr period for significant and independent risk factors of death in an homogenous population of severely injured children.
