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 & his team of 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 simply help you to keep an finger on the pulse of paediatric research.
This list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Is it time to stop checking gastric residual volume in neonates?’, ‘Do we need to flush peripheral catheters?’, Is methotrexate a good drug to treat atopic dermatitis?’, ‘How long does the DTP vaccine provide protection?’, ‘Is routine ultrasound for the hip necessary after breech presentation?’, ‘For which children is team sport participation associated with better adult mental health?’, ‘What is the outcome after a 10-min APGAR score of zero?’ and ‘What is the effect of online health information (Dr Google) on trust in pediatricians’ diagnoses?’.
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
