Childhood Asthma

KOL-Index: 27 The effective management of asthma involves careful attention to family education and environmental, psychological and other triggers. However, the majority of patients will require drug treatment. The only bronchodilators in common use are β2-agonists and theophylline. In young children, the choice of an appropriate drug delivery system will frequently determine the choice of medication. ...

Abdominal Migraine

KOL-Index: 25 There is evidence to suggest that, in children, episodic abdominal pain occurring in the absence of headache may be a migrainous phenomenon. There are four separate strands of evidence for this: (i) the common co-existence of abdominal pain and migraine headaches; (ii) the similarity between children with episodic abdominal pain and children with migraine headaches, with respect to social ...

KOL-Index: 21 Serial plasma glucose estimations were performed in 44 light-for-date infants and 17 infants of diabetic mothers fed 2, 3 or 4-hourly with feeds containing 10% additional carbohydrate in the form of a glucose polymer (Caloreen). In the infants fed 2 and 3-hourly, plasma glucose was higher following the high carbohydrate feeds, particularly immediately before the next feed was due. Given ...

KOL-Index: 20 The United Kingdom Working Party diagnostic criteria for atopic dermatitis have been characterized in infants and children; however, the need for visual confirmation of flexural dermatitis by a trained investigator limits their use in large epidemiologic studies. We have administered the complete United Kingdom Working Party criteria in a postal questionnaire format to the mothers of year ...

KOL-Index: 18 Mean transit time was evaluated as a test of pulmonary function in normal and asthmatic children. It was found to be independent of body size and negatively correlated with PEFR, FEV1 and FVC in normal children. Mean transit time was less sensitive in detecting the effects of bronchodilator therapy in asthmatic children than other simpler tests of lung function. The range of normal was so ...

KOL-Index: 17 Numerous surveys of school-aged children have shown increasing asthma prevalence with a less publicized but noticeable change in the male to female ratio. We sought to confirm this change in the sex ratio in four questionnaire-based surveys and investigate possible explanations. Identical questionnaire surveys were performed in 1989 (n=3,390), 1994 (n=4,047), 1999 (n=3,540) and 2004 ...

KOL-Index: 16 AIMS: To determine the clinical course of childhood abdominal migraine, seven to 10 years after the diagnosis. METHODS: A total of 54 children with abdominal migraine were studied; 35 were identified from a population survey carried out on Aberdeen schoolchildren between 1991 and 1993, and 19 from outpatient records of children in the same age group who had attended the Royal Aberdeen ...
