  • Randomized Diagnostic Trial of First-Line Genome Sequencing in Pediatric White Matter Disorders

    The results of this study indicate that first-line genome sequencing in pediatric patients with suspected genetic white matter disease is more diagnostically efficient, defined as higher diagnostic efficacy and shorter time to diagnosis, than current standard of care approaches.

  • Uncommon Diagnoses That Cannot Be Missed

    Children present to the ED with a variety of issues ranging from benign to life-threatening. The ability to recognize potentially devastating diseases early facilitates care and ensures an optimal outcome for the child.

  • Acute Treatment of Pediatric Migraine

    Primary headaches, especially migraines, are a common problem for adults and children who present to the emergency department. Migraine headaches have been challenging to diagnose, especially in the pediatric population.
  • Advances in Pediatric Neck Trauma: What’s New in Assessment and Management?

    Although rare, pediatric neck trauma may have devastating consequences. The author provides current information on recognizing and managing pediatric neck trauma.

  • The Tactics and Tools to Manage Pediatric Heart Failure

    Fortunately, pediatric heart failure is a rare occurrence, but early diagnosis, aggressive management, and timely transfer to a facility capable of advanced cardiac support are essential to optimize the outcome of each child. The authors review the early recognition of a child in heart failure and also discuss an approach to troubleshooting and recognizing complications associated with a ventricular assist device.

  • Pediatric Asthma Management in the Emergency Department

    Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood. Children with asthma frequently present in the acute care setting with disease ranging from mild to severe. Accurately assessing children with asthma and providing escalating care as needed improves outcome. The authors provide a current review of asthma and evidence-based care.

  • COVID-19 and Children

    In China, children of all ages have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 and seem to follow a relatively mild clinical course.

  • Beating the Pandemic: What Emergency Providers Should Know About COVID-19

    The disease associated with the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is now a significant event in world history, with uncertain but likely major consequences for individuals, families, healthcare workers, health systems, and the global economy. Although COVID-19 appears to pose only a limited danger to children, older adults face the possibility of much more serious manifestations. At this time it seems COVID-19 will demand the attention of most practitioners and allied health providers over the next year. Thus, familiarization with what is known so far about its pathophysiology, epidemiologic risk factors, treatment, and future directions for research is important as we face and fight this crisis united as healthcare providers.

  • New Working Group to Produce Guidance for Pediatric Gene Therapy

    The NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s working group on Pediatric Gene Therapy and Medical Ethics formed in the fall of 2019 to address and propose recommendations to issues involving gene-based therapies in pediatric populations, including research activities.

  • Diabetes in Pediatric ED Patients

    Emergency medicine providers commonly will encounter children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, the incidence of both is increasing, and the acute care provider must be able to recognize the subtle and dramatic presentations of both diseases. Early recognition and management of both the disease and its complications — diabetic ketoacidosis, hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state, and cerebral edema — are critical to ensure an optimal outcome.
