Highlights of latest advances in Pediatrics Neonatal Care 2018
Track 1: General Pediatrics
General pediatrics deals with babies, children and adolescents health care including physical, behavior and mental health issues. Having medical knowledge and an understanding of how treatments affect different developmental growth stage is important because as children mature both cognitively and physically planning a unified approach to pediatric safety and quality is necessary for the childhood development. Pediatrics generally focuses on congenital defects, genetic variance, and developmental issues.
Gastrointestinal disorders in children
Track 2: Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine
The perinatal period is thought to be the highest risk for human death (foetal or neonatal death). Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine covers a considerably wide range of issues such as complicated pregnancy, obstetric complications, foetal diagnosis, treatment, maternal emergencies and surgical complications of pregnancy and their effects on the mother, foetus, and neonate. In particular, the complicated pregnancy has a connection with drug use. Maternal and foetal medicine goal is to benefit mothers and their babies with the critical support to deliver a healthy baby through advancing research in clinical care and discovery.
Blood clotting disorders
Pregnancy hypertension (high blood pressure)
Multiple births (twins, triplets, etc.)
Improving maternal nutrition is important as it enhances healthy outcomes for both babies and mothers. Adequate nutrition is integral in improving maternal, neonatal, child health, survival and child development. Prenatal care and provision of free supplements will largely improve maternal nutrition and it leads to reduce the high burden of maternal and child undernutrition and mortality. Furthermore, maternal nutrition is necessary to know about different facets of behavior changes and is likely needed to achieve desired health outcomes. Particularly improving knowledge, self-efficacy, and perceptions of social norms thereby reducing the high burden of malnutrition and saving the lives of mothers and children.
Attention Deficit Disorder
Dietary Deficiencies (Macro and Micronutrients)
Diet-related noncommunicable diseases
Track 4: Neonatal diseases
Many factors are responsible for the development of neonatal diseases like household air pollution, environmental factors and high maternal body-mass index which leads to neonatal mortality. Maternal Smoking and being overweight during pregnancy are associated with risk of infection. Neonates, especially preterm infants are relatively immune compromised because of the immaturity of the immune system and highly developed antibodies which leads to increased susceptibility to serious bacterial, fungal and viral infections.
Blood cell disorders
Neural tube defects
Congenital heart defect
Fragile X syndrome
Vaccines are an important way to protect baby from life-threatening diseases because their immune system is not fully developed at birth, which puts newborns at greater risk for infections.Vaccines are the safest and most effective preventive measures to protect infants from diseases which makes the child immunized. This boosts the immune system to develop weapons called antibodies. Knowledge about the safe and effective drug therapy in neonates has increased substantially.Several research and analytical techniques have been developed .Determining the right dose for drugs doses have significant differences in physiology affecting drug absorption, distribution, metabolism because it is largely affected by the maturation process of organ system in neonates. Overdosing can result in adverse effects. Safe and effective administration of medicines is necessary in neonates.
Neonatal drug therapy
Drugs in Neonatal Resuscitation
Challenges with the neonatal drug study design
Drug Metabolism and Elimination
Pediatric drug research
MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella )
DTaP( diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis)
Track 6: Neonatal Intensive Care and Nursing
Pediatric nurses work in a variety of settings such as medical offices, doctor's offices, clinics, hospitals, surgical centers and other healthcare settings. They are able to diagnose illnesses and prescribe medication. Their skills bring particular comfort to children being treated in acute care departments such as the neonatal unit, pediatric critical care unit. They may take care of children with serious or chronic conditions. Many nurses work within the community, supporting families that are caring for sick children at home. Babies who are born preterm also have low birth weights. Recent progress in neonatal care has significantly improved the prognosis and chances of survival of critically ill or extremely preterm neonates and have modified the limits of viability.
Human coronavirus infection
Gonorrhea infection of the newborn
Respiratory distress syndrome
Meconium aspiration syndrome
Metapneumovirus (hMPV) infection
Para Influenza (PIV) infection
Track 7: Pediatric Gastroenterology
A pediatric gastroenterologist is an expertise to treat child specifically in the care of infants, neonates, and teens.Gastroenterologists deals with diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), and biliary system. A gastroenterologist manages diseases of the digestive system, nutritional problems from the Esophagus to the anus and it include Gallbladder diseases.
Constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Inflammatory bowel disease
Functional gastrointestinal disorder
Short bowel syndrome
Chronic functional abdominal pain
Track 8: Pediatric Neurology
Pediatric Neurology also called Child Neurology deals disorders of Central Nervous System, peripheral nerve and muscle affecting infants, children and adolescents. Problems are seizures, delayed speech, weakness or headaches. Child neurologists have the special expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system (CNS, PNS) with an understanding of medical disorders in childhood and the special needs of the child.
Neuromuscular diseases in the newborn
Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Medically refractory epilepsy
Track 9: Pediatric Orthopaedics
Children response to injuries, infections, and deformities may be quite different than what would be seen in a full-grown person. Some of the problems children have with their bones and joints that are due to growth do not even occur in adults and the evaluation and treatment of a child are usually quite different than for an adult even for the same problem. Pediatric medical-surgical orthopaedic surgeons diagnose, treat and manage children's musculoskeletal problems involving the growing bones, joints or muscles in children from newborns to teenagers.
Joint infections and tumors
Limb and spine deformities
Chronic Childhood Arthritis
Track 10: Neonatal Haematology and Nephrology
The renal system plays a tremendous role in growth and development of infants and children. The kidney itself also undergoes a maturation process as it transitions from the fetal to the extrauterine environment. Renal functions undergo continuous adaptive changes in the neonatal period. Preterm neonates are especially vulnerable due to immature of kidneys. Birth rapidly changes the demands placed on the kidneys with respect to infant homeostasis. The confounding effects of treatment on the development of renal function in very low birth weight infants are also becoming more apparent.
Neonatal renal physiology
Placental Blood Loss
Kidney Development after Birth
Renal Physiology & Function
Track 11: Neonatal and Pediatric Cardiology
Pediatric cardiologists specialize in treating congenital or acquired heart conditions in children and infants. Evaluation and treatment may begin with the fetus since heart problems can even be detected before birth. Cardiac catheterization is done in order to diagnose or treat the child's heart problem. Patients often present with complex diagnostic and medical problems seek the assessment of the pediatric cardiologist. They treat children’s illnesses using the least invasive methods as possible. Basic responsibilities for a doctor of pediatric cardiology include conducting physical exams, echocardiography, and electrocardiograms on children. They work with other doctors and nurses in diagnosing heart and blood vessel irregularities and plan the proper course of treatment. Pediatric Cardiology is often the cornerstone of large academic medical Centers and there are many divisions of high volume and high intensity.
Congestive Heart Failure
Intensive Cardiac Care
Heart Failure and Transplantation
Cardiac Catheterization and Intervention
Track 12: Pediatric Cancer and Oncology
Pediatric cancer is cancer in a child. Child cancer is due to gene defects (called mutations) inherited from a parent. Survival rate for children's cancer has increased but for many more rare childhood cancers, the survival rate is much less, the mortality rate was slightly more. A few environmental factors, such as radiation exposure is also responsible for some types of childhood cancers.
Track 13: Pediatric Self-harm and Psychiatry
Injuries whether unintentional, self-inflicted injury or perpetuated by others are a leading cause of mortality, morbidity and healthcare costs to children and adolescents. Recent studies indicate that youth are more likely to experience an unnatural death than expected rates in their age group due to many demographic and psychiatric characteristics. Self-harm behaviour is increasing.
Treating Self-Harm in Children and Adolescents
Deliberate self-harm (DSH) prevalence and etiology
Non suicidal self-injury (NSSI)
Extreme Parenting styles and self-harm
Perinatal brain damage in newborn usually occurs by acute reduction of the umbilical circulation. The areas most heavily affected are the parasagittal region of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia Minor damage may have no noticeable effects, but severe damage can have wide range symptoms. Depending on the nature of the damage the effects may range from negligible to life-threatening.
Track 15: Infant Growth and development
Infant development begins at birth. The child's nutrient needs correspond with these changes in growth rates. Nutrition is important before and during pregnancy and is most influential non-genetic factors in fetal development. The child will grow at a steady pace; final growth spurt begins at the start of puberty. Growth Refers to an increase in some quantity over time. The quantity can be a gradual development in maturity, age, size, weight or height. Whereas Child development relates to the biological, psychological and emotional changes that occur in between birth and the end of adolescence. Growth and development have a very complex interaction.
Attention Deficit Disorder
Dietary Deficiencies (Macro and Micronutrients)
Diet-related noncommunicable diseases
Disorders associated with metabolic syndrome have symptoms like diabetes including increased thirst and urination, fatigue and blurred vision. There are hundreds of different genetic metabolic disorders caused by the defective gene that results in an enzyme deficiency and their symptoms treatments and prognoses vary widely. When a baby has a metabolic disorder the body can’t break down the food correctly which can cause the body to have an improper balance of amino acids, phenylalanine, blood sugar etc.
Traumatic brain injury
Maple-syrup urine disease
Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency
Track 17: Pediatrics Nutrition and Metabolism
Nutrition is the intake of food according to the body’s dietary needs. Good nutrition means getting the right amount of nutrients in the right combinations. Having nutrition knowledge will help you to achieve good health over your lifetime. Poor nutrition can lead to increased susceptibility to disease. Nutrition & Metabolism extends to a wide range of applications including nutritional needs, clinical and population studies as well as the underlying mechanisms.
Molecular, cellular and human metabolism
Priorities for nutrition content
Nutritional care and disease
Vascular anomalies of the brain and spinal cord
Track 18: Neonatal Lupus
Neonatal lupus is rare autoimmune disorder disease that is present at birth (congenital) which can be a severe and life-threatening disease. Neonatal lupus occurs when the maternal autoantibodies of Ro/La family are passed to her child in utero. These autoantibodies can cause a decrease in red blood cells (anemia), white blood cells, platelets and a characteristic red rash or skin eruption, fever, congenital heart block.In addition, infants with neonatal lupus may develop liver disease, a heart condition known as congenital heart, fatigue, loss of appetite and weight loss.

Nosebleeds in Children: Causes, Treatment, and Prevention
Nosebleeds are common in kids 3 to 10 years old. They can be scary in some cases. Most will stop on their own. If it is heavy or accompanied by dizziness or weakness seek a doctor.
A nosebleed can be anterior or posterior. Nosebleeds can be dramatic and frightening. Fortunately, most nosebleeds are not serious and usually can be managed.
Anterior nosebleeds are usually easy to control. Posterior nosebleeds are much less common than anterior nosebleeds. They tend to in elderly people. Nosebleeds tend to occur more often during winter months and in dry, cold climates. They can occur at any age. Nosebleeds are very common in children.
Following are some tips to follow during Nosebleed: Do not have your child lean back. This may cause blood to flow down the back of the throat, which tastes bad and may cause gagging, coughing, or vomiting. Keep the pressure on the nose for about 10 minutes; if you stop too soon, bleeding may start again.
What causes nosebleeds?
Nosebleeds often caused by harmless activities such as your child picking their nose, blowing it too hard or too often, or from getting knocked on the nose during play.
Other causes of a nosebleed may include:
Overly sensitive blood vessels, Infections in the nose, throat, and sinuses, allergies, a foreign body in the nose, constipation, certain medications.Sometimes, and children can have multiple nosebleeds over several weeks.
Stem Cell Therapy for Neonatal Disorders: the future is here
Stem cells have the ability to replicate themselves and to differentiate into a wide range of specialized cell types - each specialized cell performs specific function. Because of their ability to differentiate into multiple cell types, stem cell is potentially the “parent” of a specific lineage that ultimately results in a range of adult cells. The term new-born stem cells refers to the various and specific stem cell populations that exist throughout the umbilical cord.
Preclinical research results suggest stem cell therapies are promising the next breakthrough in the treatment of currently devastating neonatal disorders. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia and intraventricular hemorrhage in preterm neonates remain major causes of mortality and morbidities. Stem cell therapy for currently intractable and devastating neonatal disorders, such as BPD, HIE, and IVH, might be a potential paradigm shift in neonatal medicine. Exciting progress in preclinical and clinical studies has brought human stem cell therapy for new-born infants. However, the resolution of several issues, such as safety, up-scaling of manufacturing processes, standardization methods, clinical indications, timing, dosage, and a better understanding of protective mechanisms, are required to permit safe clinical translation of stem cell therapy for new-born infants in the near future.
New data suggest that loss of stem/progenitor cell populations in the developing brain and lungs may underlie tissue simplification. These observations constitute the basis for the application of stem cell-based protocols following extremely preterm birth. Transplantation of different cell types could be beneficial in preterm infants for the prevention and/or treatment of BPD, PVL and other major sequelae of prematurity. There have been substantial advances in neonatal medical care over the past 2 decades that have resulted in the increased survival of very low birth weight infants. Despite these advances, there continues to be significant morbidity associated with extremely preterm birth that includes both short-term and long-term pulmonary and neurologic consequences. Stem cell-based therapies are emerging as potential paradigm complex diseases with multifactorial etiologies.
MSCs are widely used in clinical trials on adults and were approved in Canada for the treatment of graft-vs-host disease in children. It is thus critical that all infants who receive MSCs or other stem cells be monitored for several years for the theoretical risk of tumor formation.
What Would Cause Sudden Weight Gain in Children?
Some children are prone to gain weight gain easily so it's important to follow physical fitness and healthy diet. When a child goes from slim to suddenly overweight, it's a cause for concern. Before you panic about weight gain, you should understand that there is a wide array when it comes to a child's weight. One of the usual suspects is puberty. If your child has recently has been experiencing other signs of puberty, her weight gain could be another facet of her changing body. Several factors account for weight gains like changes in the level of activity, friends or mood. In some cases, if your child is taking a certain medication, like an anti-psychotic drug, weight gain is often a side effect.
We know that sudden weight gain could be the sign of serious conditions. Overweight children are at a higher risk for health problems, including high blood pressure, elevated levels of cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.
If the child has gained weight and we think his food habits could be the problem then there is a serious concern to create a healthy diet.In some cases, medical treatment may be necessary; especially if the rapid weight gain is a side effect or symptom of another condition. Kids are developing weight-related health problems previously it is seen only in adults.
Genes aren't the only things that family members may share. The eating and exercise habits of people in the same household. If parents eat a lot of high-calorie foods their kids tend to do the same.
So it's not a specific number on the scale that's important. It's making sure that kids stay healthy — inside and out.
Cutting Edge Pediatric Therapy
Malnutrition refers to deficiencies, excesses or imbalances in a person’s intake of nutrients. Inadequate amounts of food causing child retarded growth. Nearly 800 Million people in the world do not have enough to eat. Malnutrition affects all age groups. It is a consequence of consuming too few essential nutrients or using or excreting them more rapidly. Infants, young children, and teenagers need additional nutrients. By 2050 hunger and child malnutrition could increase by up to 20 percent as a result of climate-related disasters. The benefits of immunizing children may also be less in the event of a famine if the risk of dying from hunger is high.Parents today are comfortable with an instant exchange of knowledge through social media and online medical research. That’s especially true for pediatric diseases, where family support networks not only share information and tips but also influence and sometimes underwrite research. Pharmaceutical companies have a growing interest in Pediatrics research, which offers favorable business models and often a faster path to the clinic. As a result, new discoveries are emerging. Political and economic pressures to cut costs are forcing health care to adapt and this is producing many innovations. It may be partially a survival move.
Evaluate potential pediatricians for your child
Many decisions must be made when you have a child and one of the most important is choosing a pediatrician. You’ll want a pediatrician who will help you keep everything in perspective by providing guidance and direction as needed. Pediatricians have training in the health and illnesses of children from birth. It’s generally a good idea to embark on your pediatrician search at the end of your second trimester or beginning of your third trimester.Making a right decision well before labor and delivery allows for an informed, well-considered choice. Then we have a peace of mind knowing you’ve secured a doctor for your child, with time to spare.
Potential Pediatricians must meet established standards for providing child healthcare.
People look for different things in doctors and what's most important for you may not even be on someone else's radar. So rather than just gathering try asking some probing questions of whoever makes the recommendation. Our pediatrician needs to be someone who is empathetic, nurturing, patient and kind. Don’t down to two or three doctors.Take the opportunity to get to know the doctor and his staff.
Family doctors are trained to care for patients of all ages including children, but they do not have specialized training in pediatrics. Other parents prefer a family practitioner because a doctor specializing in family medicine can treat the whole family from birth to old age. Convenient and comfortable with your doctor and know how good your child responds to his/her treatments and behavior. The nurses and support staff must be courteous, friendly and above all make sure your concerns are addressed and your comfort is always top of mind above all. Be honest with yourself.
Foetal Alcohol Disorders More Common Than Previously Believed
The children from most of our communities came across the FASD which is an umbrella term for a range of disorders and health abnormalities caused by exposure to alcohol in the womb.FASDs are a leading cause of developmental disabilities which lead to growth deficiencies, facial abnormalities and organ damage and cognitive development and behavioral changes. They often have many challenges throughout life and have an increased risk of premature death. There is an enormous increase up to 10 times disabilities related to fetal alcohol exposure during pregnancy than previously believed, finds a new study. But the new research in JAMA suggests that 3.1% to 9.9% of children throughout the U.S. have a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. With the lack of public awareness about the spectrum of disorders, has undoubtedly fueled the misconception that very small amounts of alcohol are “safe” to drink during pregnancy.
The researchers made several calculations to extrapolate a range of estimates for FASD more broadly.
Types of FASDs include:
· fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS)
· partial fetal alcohol syndrome
· alcohol-related birth defects
· alcohol-related neurodevelopment disorder
· neurobehavioral disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure
