BACKGROUND: The Humpty Dumpty Falls Prevention Program was developed to address an unmet need to identify pediatric patients at risk of a fall event. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of the Humpty Dumpty Fall Scale-Inpatient (HDFS) across a diverse, international pediatric population. In addition, the characteristics of patients who experienced a fall were analyzed. METHODS: A retrospective, cross-sectional design was used to assess fall risk across 16 hospitals and...

Although HIV risk behaviors such as substance use and condomless sex are prevalent among people currently seeking or receiving services at substance use disorder (SUD) treatment programs, associations with housing status in this population have not been well studied. We examined the associations between housing status, substance use and HIV-related sexual risk behaviors among 1281 participants from 12 US community-based SUD programs. In addition, substance use was examined as a potential mediato...

BACKGROUND: The Choosing Wisely® Campaign (CWC) was launched in 2012. Five recommendations to reduce the use of "low-value" services in hospitalized children were published in 2013. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to estimate the frequency and trends of utilization of these services in tertiary children's hospitals five years before and after the publication of the recommendations. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, longitudinal analysis of hospitalizations to 36 children's hospitals f...

Background In pediatric cardiac anesthesiology, there is increased focus on minimizing morbidity, ensuring optimal functional status, and using health care resources sparingly. One aspect of care that has potential to affect all of the above is postoperative mechanical ventilation. Historically, postoperative ventilation was considered a must for maintaining patient stability. Ironically, it is recognized that mechanical ventilation may increase risk of adverse outcomes in the postoperative peri...

BACKGROUND: This study focuses on the implementation of CYP2D6 genetic test profiling and the challenges associated with using standard pharmacogenetics panels in a diverse South Florida population. METHODS: A total of 413 participants were recruited to participate in this study through Nicklaus Children's Hospital. Buccal swabs were collected and tested using an extended CYP2D6 panel including 22 alleles. Phenotype, genotype, and allelic frequencies were compared among different racial and ethn...

Introduction Rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) has been shown to reduce the need for transfused blood products in adult and pediatric cardiac surgery patients. However, similar evidence in newborns, neonates, and young infants is lacking. We quantified ROTEM value changes in pediatric patients on cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) before, during and after blood product transfusion.

AbstractObjectives: To study the postoperative impact of cochlear implants (CIs) on tinnitus, as well as the impact of tinnitus on speech recognition with CI switched on.Methods: Fifty-two postlingual deafened CI recipients (21 males and 31 females) were assessed using an established Tinnitus Characteristics Questionnaire and Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) before and after cochlear implantation. The tinnitus loudness was investigated when CI was switched on and off in CI recipients with persi...
