A Rare Pulmonary Defect Prompts Parents' Nationwide Search For Answers

When Carter Johnson came into the world on January 9, 2018, he was perfect in every way, according to his parents, Kelly and Malcolm. But their joy was short-lived and replaced with worry and fear.

Something wasn't quite right. Carter's color was off and he was turning grey, prompting the care team at the local hospital in the Baltimore—Washington Metro area to whisk him to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for tests. When that failed to provide answers, the family was sent to a regional hospital for further examination. That's where they discovered there was no blood flow into Carter's right lung. He was diagnosed with a rare condition called absent right pulmonary artery.

Time was of the essence. Typically, this condition is associated with multiple congenital heart defects, prompting additional echocardiograms, more tests and a rapid search for answers. In Carter's case, his d

Study Shows Simply Listening To Teens May Help Them Better Control Type 1 Diabetes

A new study by a team at the BD Diabetes Center at Atlantic Health System’s Goryeb Children’s Hospital headed by Harold Starkman, MD, director of pediatric endocrinology, found that teens with poorly controlled Type 1 diabetes can experience anger, frustration and anxiety, fraying the relationships they have with their parents and health care providers and impacting their treatment and self-management. A better approach, the team found, was for parents and providers to reduce stress and promote success by simply listening to patients as they described their efforts and struggles.

The study was published in the March 2019 issue of the American Psychological Association’s Family, Systems, & Health® journal.

In order to control blood sugar levels, people with Type 1 diabetes must test their blood frequently and take insulin, which requires diligent monitoring. For teens, this can be espec

Critical Errors In Inhaler Technique Common In Children With Asthma

In the first study to evaluate inhaler technique in children hospitalized for asthma -- the group at highest risk for complications and death from asthma -- researchers found that nearly half of participants demonstrated improper inhaler use, which means they routinely were not taking in the full dose of medication. Adolescents most commonly displayed critical errors in inhaler technique. They also often skipped using a spacer, which is a device that is recommended for use with an inhaler to help the right amount of asthma medication reach the lungs. Findings were published in the Journal of Hospital Medicine.

"We know that asthma can be well managed in the majority of patients and using your inhaler correctly is key factor to managing asthma," says lead author Waheeda Samady, MD, hospitalist at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Major Study Finds One In Five Children Have Mental Health Problems

One in five Ontario children and youth suffer from a mental disorder, but less than one-third have had contact with a mental health care provider, says the Ontario Child Health Study (OCHS).

Although those overall results echo a similar study from 1983, the new study found a much larger proportion of children and youth with a disorder had contact with other health providers and in other settings, most often through schools.

The new study, called the 2014 OCHS for when data collection started, found that the patterns of prevalence among different sexes and age groups have changed.

Hyperactivity disorder in boys four to 11 years old jumped dramatically from nine to 16 percent, but there has been a substantial drop in disruptive behaviour among males 12 to 16 years old from 10 to 3 percent. There has been a steep increase in anxiety and depression among both male and female youth from 9
