Association between Cesarean Delivery and Childhood Obesity

Cesarean delivery rates remain high and variable across hospitals, regions and countries & it may be a risk factor for childhood obesity, possibly because delivery route can influence the intestinal microbiomes, which may influence energy regulation. Cesarean delivery may increase the risk of obesity in early childhood. Researchers had found that mothers who gave birth by cesarean delivery had a higher mean prepregnancy body mass index, greater mean gestational weight gain, and shorter mean duration of exclusive breastfeeding compared with those who delivered vaginally. The proportion of obese children was greater in the cesarean delivery group compared with the vaginal delivery group at age 2 years, but not at older ages.

The increase rates of cesarean section occurred at the same period as the dramatic increase of childhood overweight/ obesity. The association between CS and overweight/ obesity in preschool children are influenced by potential cofounders. Both children delivered by elective or non-elective CS are at increased risk of overweight/ obesity.

Language Perception in Children with Neurodevelopmental Delays can be assessed by Tracking Eye Movement

Language perception in children with normal development and those with neurodevelopmental delay can be assessed by a viable approach called Eye Movement Tracking.

Evaluation of neurodevelopmental delay during infancy can be challenging, particularly in children with significant motor delays- such as those with cerebral palsy- which often are associated with a difficulty in speaking. This type of evaluation was conducted by researchers to find new ways. Eye tracking is the only method in human behavior research rendering it possible to objectively measure and quantify eye movements in real time and has become a non-intrusive, affordable, and eay-to-use tool in human behavior research that allows measuring visual attention as it objectively monitors where, and what people look at.

Eye tracking refers to the measurement of eye-activity and scientifically implies the recording of eye- position and movement on a 2D screen or in 3D environments based on the optical tracking of corneal reflections to assess visual attention.Two different types of eye tracking devices include Screen- based eye trackers and eye tracking glasses.

Pediatric Critical Care Treatment Raising various issues

Pediatric Critical Care is concerned with the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions that requires organ support and invasive monitoring. Critical care treatment raises issues that includes psychological health; pressure points; mobilisation and physiotherapy; and secondary infections. Critical care is provided to the children whose condition is potentially reversible and who have a good chance of surviving with intensive care support. A prime imperative for admission to an emergency unit is that the basic condition can be overcome. Convenient diagnosis and initiation of treatment are required in order to counteract unnecessary increases in patient morbidity and mortality.

Who said its only the mother that can heal her child?

The child possesses the qualities of healing too. In fact. even when it is unborn, it can heal its parent.

During pregnancy, a woman passes all her food and nutrients to the child through the placenta attached to both the mother and the child that includes proteins stored in the blood so that the child develops immunity and can fight diseases on its own.

Pediatric Allergy and Immunology

Pediatric Allergy and Immunology is a vital subject to be learnt to focus on factors identified with child’s immune system. Many children who have mild adverse reactions to penicillins; such as maculopapular rash; hives; or gastrointestinal symptoms; are not hypersensitive and can securely get this class of anti-infection agents in the future. Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is quick in onset and may cause death. Food allergy affects around 6 to 8 percent of kids under five years old. Oral immunotherapy for nourishments is an investigational treatment for food allergies that can prompt brief desensitization to a food; however the capacity of oral immunotherapy to initiate permanent tolerance to the food is less certain. Ecological and food allergies in children occur when the children’s immune system responds to ordinary innocuous substances present in the environment.

Pediatric Rheumatology

Track 8: Pediatric Rheumatology
Rheumatology is a sub-speciality in internal medicine concerned with the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases like vasculitislupus and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis; which are known to be the disorders of the immune system.  One of the significant change in current rheumatology is the advancement of new medications called biologics; or disease modifying agents; which can control extreme ailment more effectively. Rheumatic diseases are mostly treated with analgesics; non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs; steroids; monoclonal antibodies. Patients with rheumatoid joint inflammation often require a long term; composed and a multidisciplinary group approach towards administration of individual patients. Logical research on biologics and clinical trials on monoclonal antibody treatments have added a new dimension to the restorative treatment of arthritic disorders.
