BACKGROUND Guidelines for depth of chest compressions in pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are based on sparse evidence. OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the performance of the two most widely recommended chest compression depth levels for pediatric CPR (1.5 in. and 1/3 the anterior-posterior diameter- APd) in a controlled swine model of asphyxial cardiac arrest. METHODS We executed a 2-group, randomized laboratory study with an adaptive design allowing early termination for overwhelm...

Background null Retaining participants over time is a frequent challenge in research studies evaluating long-term health outcomes. This study's objective was to compare the impact of prepaid and postpaid incentives on response to a six-month follow-up survey. null Methods null We conducted an experiment to compare response between participants randomized to receive either prepaid or postpaid cash card incentives within a multisite study of children under 15 years in age who were hospitalized for...
Rationale: Animal studies of cardiac arrest suggest shorter epinephrine dosing intervals than currently recommended (every 3-5 minutes) may be beneficial in select circumstances. Objectives: To eva...

BACKGROUND Little is known about the epidemiology of and outcomes related to red blood cell (RBC) transfusion in septic children across multiple centers. We performed propensity-adjusted secondary analyses of the Biomarker Phenotyping of Pediatric Sepsis and Multiple Organ Failure (PHENOMS) study to test the hypothesis that early RBC transfusion is associated with fewer organ failure-free days in pediatric severe sepsis. METHODS 401 children were enrolled in the parent study. Children were exclu...

BACKGROUND Inhaled nitric oxide (INO) is used to treat hypoxic respiratory failure without clear evidence of benefit. Future trials to evaluate its use will be designed based on an understanding of the populations in which this therapy is provided and with outcomes based on patient characteristics, for example, a history of premature birth. METHODS This was a multi-center prospective observational study that evaluated subjects in the pediatric ICU who were treated with INO for a respiratory indi...
AIM Evaluate cerebrovascular autoregulation (CAR) using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) after pediatric cardiac arrest and determine if deviations from CAR-derived optimal mean arterial pressure (MAPopt) are associated with outcomes. METHODS CAR was quantified by a moving, linear correlation between time-synchronized mean arterial pressure (MAP) and regional cerebral oxygenation, called cerebral oximetry index (COx). MAPopt was calculated using a multi-window weighted algorithm. We calculated ...
