Bubble Wrap PLUS – July ’22


Can’t get enough of Bubble Wrap? The Bubble Wrap Plus is a monthly paediatric journal club reading list from Anke Raaijmakers working with Professor Jaan Toelen and his team at the University Hospitals in Leuven. This comprehensive list is developed from 34 journals, including major and subspecialty paediatric journals. We suggest this list can help you discover relevant or interesting articles for your local journal club or help you to keep a finger on the pulse of paediatric research.

This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Has children’s BMI increased during the COVID-19 pandemic?’, ‘Does 24-h fluid and nutritional intake play a role in enuresis?’, ‘Do pediatric patients with IBD have dietary beliefs that lead to restrictive dietary behaviors?’, ‘Should we prescribe multispecies probiotics to prevent AB-related diarrhea?’ and ‘How can we differentiate Bell’s palsy from Lyme induced facial palsy?’

You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
