Here is our June Bubble Wrap Plus, our monthly paediatric Journal Club List provided by Professor Jaan Toelen & his team of the University Hospitals in Leuven (Belgium). This comprehensive list of ‘articles to read’ comes from 34 journals, including Pediatrics, The Journal of Pediatrics, Archives of Disease in Childhood, JAMA Pediatrics, Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, NEJM, and many more. For a summary on COVID-19, we refer to our collection of COVID resources and in particular, our weekly updated literature summary.
This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Is there an association between association between noncrying and nonbreathing at birth?’, ‘Is picky eating protective against higher BMI?’, ‘Is probiotic use associated with decreased odds of NEC and death?’, ‘Does hypertension occur often in children with DKA?’ and ‘Where have all the children gone during the COVID-19 pandemic?’ and … ‘Do Dutch paediatricians adhere well to the neonatal resuscitation guidelines?’
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
