A New Opportunity to Define Health Care Reform for Children

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

The magic year for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), 2014, is now upon us. The transition of millions of uninsured individuals into new insurance exchange markets has not been smooth, but as the challenges are addressed, our collective attention should turn to ensuring that the law meets the needs of the people it was intended to serve. This is especially true for children.

Children’s Health Care and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act What’s at Stake?

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

Although the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (hereafter referred to as the ACA) of 2010 does not explicitly target the health care needs of children, its significant reforms and cascading effects throughout our complex health system are likely to directly and indirectly affect children’s health care. The ACA increases insurance coverage for children and their families by covering comprehensive preventive services with no cost sharing, eliminating exclusions for preexisting conditions,

Antenatal Glucocorticoids Prior to Cesarean Delivery at Term

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

Administration of glucocorticoids to pregnant women to accelerate fetal lung maturation prior to preterm birth is one of the most effective interventions in perinatal medicine. Its success led to the evaluation of glucocorticoid administration prior to prelabor cesarean delivery between 37 weeks 0 days and 38 weeks 6 days of gestational age. The Antenatal Steroids for Term Elective Caesarean Section (ASTECS) trial demonstrated that antenatal glucocorticoids reduced short-term respiratory morbidi

The Descent

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

The glum 16-year-old girl sat disconsolately looking at her shoes, while her mother unfurled their story. Two years ago, seemingly out of the blue, her daughter reported that her abdomen hurt. She could not identify an antecedent event that triggered her pain nor could she discern a pattern to the variation in its intensity. Yet, her daughter’s pain was unremitting and disabling. Over time, the abdominal pain was further complicated by the development of a crushing headache, profound dizziness,

Enhancing Our Understanding of Teen-Driver Crashes

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

While progress has been made in reducing the number of teens killed in motor vehicle crashes, crashes continue to be the leading cause of death for teens in the United States. The high crash rate for teens is owing in large part to their lack of driving experience. Continued identification of specific characteristics of teens that lead to elevated crash risk can inform interventions for high-risk subgroups. This month’s issue of JAMA Pediatrics includes a study by Ouimet et al that examined the

More Work Needed to Protect Children but Promising Trend Data on Exposure to Violence

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

Finkelhor and colleagues continue their leadership in providing trend data on maltreatment of children. Their previous work has shown that within child maltreatment there has been a 20-year decline in emotional child abuse and sexual abuse but not child neglect. Their current study, based on 3 large representative samples of national random digit dialing surveys, finds encouraging data on exposure to violence among children defined more broadly, with 27 significant declines in child maltreatment

Role of Celiac Disease Screening for Children With Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

Almost any pediatric health care provider will substantiate the significant disease burden of “abdominal pain.” Although an understanding of a patient’s medical history and a careful physical examination can guide a clinician, in many cases, there persists the difficult task of deciding who and how to test when the etiology remains uncertain. One important resource is the Rome criteria and classification system to diagnose symptoms and to treat and manage children with suspected functional gastr

The Value of Time in Assessing the Effectiveness of Newborn Screening for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

from ArchPedi - 01 Jun 14

Time is precious. In newborn screening (NBS), more time is often associated with increased risk—risk to a child’s health that comes with the passing of time between NBS and diagnosis of a disorder. In their article titled “Nationwide Neonatal Screening for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia in Sweden: A 26-Year Longitudinal Prospective Population-Based Study,” Gidlöf et al show that for assessment of a program’s screening performance, more time is exceedingly valuable. By assessing the program durin
