Here is a new Bubble Wrap Plus, our monthly paediatric Journal Club List provided by Professor Jaan Toelen 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.
This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘Does the administration of colostrum reduce mortality in very preterms?’, ‘Can suffocation explain 20 or 50% of sudden unexpected infant deaths?’, ‘Is maternal fever a reliable predictor of neonatal sepsis?’, ‘Can clinicians discriminate children with pneumonia who develop severe complications from those who do not?’ and ‘Do rapid diagnostic methods improve antibiotic prescribing in pediatric bacteraemia?’.
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
