Here is our latest Bumper BubbleWrap Plus, combining October and November’s paediatric Journal Club Lists provided by Professor Jaan Toelen & his team of the University Hospitals in Leuven (Belgium). This comprehensive list of ‘articles to read’ from the last two months 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 bumper list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘What are the outcomes for oral immunotherapy for peanut allergy?’, ‘Is lung ultrasound a useful investigation in preterms with RDS?’, ‘Does a gluten-free diet lead to improved headache in children with celiac disease?’, ‘ Which mental health conditions are associated with hyperthyroidism?’, ‘Do commonly available round facemasks fit near-term and term infants?’, ‘Does formula feeding increases the risk of antibiotic prescriptions?’, ‘Is foot-length growth a good early marker for puberty?’ and ‘Is chocolate consumption good for your telomeres?’
You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
