A Systematic Review of Cardiac Autonomic Modulation in Mothers and Their Infants
Arthur Ferreira Vale, Mayara Kelly Alves Ribeiro, Yanley Lucio Nogueira, Tereza Raquel Alcântara Silva, Maria Bárbara Franco Gomes, Karina Simões, Ana Cristina Silva Rebelo*
This study was motivated by a clinical concern about infant growth, seeking to contribute to the comfort and wellbeing of preterm neonates. Neurobehavioral development can be improved through kangaroo care (KC), particularly when this care begins early. It is known that heart activity is largely modulated by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), which promotes rapid adjustments to the cardiovascular system in reaction to different stimuli such as stress, physical exercise and postural changes in normal and pathological conditions.
Do Pediatric Residents Learn Resuscitation from Pediatric Advanced Life Support (Pals) Training?
Nicole Baier MD, Tom Kallay MD, Nick Anas MD, Richard Mink MD, MACM*
The Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) course is designed to teach the pediatric provider initial stabilization of critically ill children and residency programs often employ it as the main method to achieve this. We hypothesized that although PALS may initially teach residents the knowledge and skills needed to resuscitate children, this information is not retained.
Interparental Agreement on Ratings of Infants’ Social-Emotional and Behavioral Problems and Competencies
Satoshi Yago, MSN*, Taiko Hirose, PhD, Motoko Okamitsu, PhD
Clinically significant emotional and behavioral problems exist even among infants younger than 3 years old. These early problems are not transient but are sustained into school age. Accordingly, we examined interparental agreement on ratings of social-emotional and behavioral problems and competencies in 1- to 3-year-old children.
