Anaemia is a common problem in neonatal intensive care. The vast majority of extremely low birth weight infants (birth weight less than 1000 g) require numerous red blood cell transfusions during their neonatal period.

Drug-drug interaction (DDI) screening programmes aim to increase the safety of medication by issuing alerts based on the severity of DDIs. However, not all DDI alerts may be clinically relevant.

In Switzerland, complementary medicine is officially recognised within the healthcare system and mainly practised in conjunction with conventional medicine. As in other countries, there is high demand for and use of complementary medicine with children.

Impact of co-amoxicillin-resistant Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa on the rate of infectious complications in paediatric complicated appendicitis

Original article
Andrey V, Crisinel PA, Prod'hom G, Croxatto A, Joseph JM
Swiss Med Wkly. 2019;149:w20055

Antibiotic choice for complicated appendicitis should address local antibiotic resistance patterns. We opted for co-amoxicillin in 2013. After that, the increasing prevalence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa challenged this choice.

Characteristics of children and adolescents at the Switzerland-wide first ambulatory interdisciplinary pain clinic at the University Children’s Hospital Basel – a retrospective study

Original article
Schneider T, Pfister D, Wörner A, Ruppen W
Swiss Med Wkly. 2019;149:w20073

Given the long history of underestimating chronic pain in children and adolescents, we lack valid data on its assessment and treatment. The psychological and economic burden for patients, their families and society is substantial.

Swiss Med Wkly. 2019;149:w20032

Tissue engineering approaches in a paediatric population are particularly relevant because of the critical need for transplant material and the small amount of accessible autologous graft tissue.

The use of ketamine PAS shifted to N2O PAS, especially in children older than three years and for the reduction of displaced upper extremity fractures.

Original article
Seiler M, Massaro SL, Staubli G, Schiestl C
Swiss Med Wkly. 2018;148:w14683

Tongue lacerations are common in children, occurring mostly from falls or sports injuries. It remains unclear which tongue lacerations should be sutured and which would benefit from spontaneous healing.
