Early recognition and vigorous treatment is the key factor in early reversal of pediatric-neonatal shock. Blood for neonatal transfusion is often issued as group O packed RBCs with compatible infant Rh type. Full Text

Lemierre’s Syndrome: A Case Report of a Child With Partial Treatment of Streptococcal Pharyngitis

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Belly Syndrome: Challenges of a Changing Paradigm
In extreme preterm infants, early use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for respiratory support reduces the incidence of chronic lung disease. However, as a sequel, inadvertent passage of air into the gastrointestinal tract leads to abdominal distension often with visibly dilated loops. The first description of “CPAP belly syndrome” in 1992, originates from the study in premature infants weighing less than 1,000 g and managed on nasal CPAP. Full Text
