What If Needle Pokes Didn't Hurt? Hospital Implements Strategies To Eliminate Or Reduce Needle Pain In Kids

A major US children's hospital introduced a first-of-its-kind project to eliminate or reduce pain from elective needle procedures in all infants and children, reports a study in PAIN Reports®, part of a special issue on research innovations in pediatric pain. The official open-access journal of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), PAIN Reports is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.

"This is the first report of a successful system-wide protocol implementation to reduce or eliminate needle pain, including pain from vaccinations, in a children's hospital world-wide," write Stefan J. Friedrichsdorf, MD, FAAP, Donna Eull, RN, and their colleagues of Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Minneapolis.

Program Will Educate, Empower ER Visitors With Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure

A new $3 million, five-year grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute will allow researchers to determine whether a unique program designed to educate people with uncontrolled hypertension — also known as high blood pressure — about the importance of getting their blood pressure under control can help reduce the risk of developing chronic and expensive-to-treat secondary cardiovascular conditions among this high-risk group.

“Even mild to moderately uncontrolled high blood pressure has consequences on the heart and sets the stage for future disease, including kidney failure, requiring lifelong dialysis, and heart failure,” said Dr. Heather Prendergast, professor of emergency medicine in the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine and principal investigator on the grant.

Medical guidelines issued by the American Heart Association define hypertension as a blood

Researchers Develop Biometric Tool For Newborn Fingerprinting

Researchers at the University of California San Diego say they have dramatically advanced the science of biometric identification, creating a novel technology that can capture the fingerprints of infants and children, even on the first day of birth.

“We think we’ve solved the problem of infant identification for both developed and developing countries,” said Eliah Aronoff-Spencer, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine, UC San Diego School of Medicine and the Qualcomm Institute at UC San Diego. “This new technology allows for quick, accurate fingerprinting that may eliminate the need for paper identification and improve health care and security for millions.”

Globally, infant and childhood identification is needed for health care delivery, especially in remote or resource-limited areas, as well as for supporting efforts in disaster relief, human trafficking, migration and refugee se

Penn Nursing Study Highlights Rapid Weight Gain During Infancy As Possible Risk Factor For Later Obesity In Children With Autism

Childhood obesity is a serious public health concern that can have a profound impact on children’s health and well-being. Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are more likely to have obesity compared to their peers with typical development, data show. Until recently, little has been known about why children with ASD are at increased risk for developing obesity.

A new study from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (Penn Nursing), which examined early life risk factors for obesity among children with ASD, developmental delays or disorders, and children from the general population, is among the first to show that children with ASD had the highest frequency of rapid weight gain during the first six months of life, which may put them at increased risk for childhood obesity. The study has been published online in the journal Autism.
