Here is September’s 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.
This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘When may influenza lead to severe pneumonia?’, ‘Do IVF babies have an abnormal vascular health?’, ‘Should we have a talk with our anesthesiologists about prolonged fasting in pediatric anesthesia?’, ‘Is there an association between UTIs and renal scarring?’ and ‘Prednisolone or Dexamethasone, which one is best for Croup?’.
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
