Overlapping borders: limit of viability and late terminations of pregnancy – a retrospective multicentre observational study
This is a comprehensive study of late terminations of pregnancy between 22 0/7 and 27 6/7 weeks of gestation in Switzerland. Late terminations of pregnancy contribute significantly to mortality rates among extremely low gestational age newborns (ELGANs).
Neonatal red blood cell transfusion practices in Switzerland: national survey and review of international recommendations
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.
Prevalence of high-risk drug-drug interactions in paediatric inpatients: a retrospective, single-centre cohort analysis
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.
Early repair of tetralogy of Fallot has many advantages, but patients in developing countries usually do not receive timely repair interventions.
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
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
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.
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.
Ketamine procedural analgosedation before and after introducing nitrous oxide 70% in a paediatric emergency department
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.
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.
