    Can paediatricians benefit from the Internet?1997In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 77, no 2, p. 179-182Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is likely that many paediatricians will find the Internet useful. The main benefits are probably the ease and speed of communication and immediate access to a few databases such as MEDLINE. It is also practical to integrate the import, processing, storage, and export of data into one's own computer. It is also possible that the Internet in all its forms will become an integrated part of our daily paediatric practice as a result of the increased usage of the Internet by patients, parents, and paediatricians.

    Should euthanasia be legal? An international survey of neonatal intensive care units staff2004In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 89, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To present the views of a representative sample of neonatal doctors and nurses in 10 European countries on the moral acceptability of active euthanasia and its legal regulation. Design: A total of 142 neonatal intensive care units were recruited by census (in the Netherlands, Sweden, Hungary, and the Baltic countries) or random sampling (in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), 1391 doctors and 3410 nurses completed an anonymous questionnaire (response rates 89% and 86% respectively). Main outcome measure: The staff opinion that the law in their country should be changed to allow active euthanasia "more than now". Results: Active euthanasia appeared to be both acceptable and practiced in the Netherlands, France, and to a lesser extent Lithuania, and less acceptable in Sweden, Hungary, Italy, and Spain. More then half (53%) of the doctors in the Netherlands, but only a quarter (24%) in France felt that the law should be changed to allow active euthanasia "more than now". For 40% of French doctors, end of life issues should not be regulated by law. Being male, regular involvement in research, less than six years professional experience, and having ever participated in a decision of active euthanasia were positively associated with an opinion favouring relaxation of legal constraints. Having had children, religiousness, and believing in the absolute value of human life showed a negative association. Nurses were slightly more likely to consider active euthanasia acceptable in selected circumstances, and to feel that the law should be changed to allow it more than now. Conclusions: Opinions of health professionals vary widely between countries, and, even where neonatal euthanasia is already practiced, do not uniformly support its legalisation.

    Visual and cerebral sequelae of very low birth weight in adolescents2007In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 92, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To describe the visual functions and relate them to MRI findings and the intellectual level in adolescents born with very low birth weight (VLBW). Design: Population-based case-control study. Patients: 59 15-year-old VLBW adolescents and 55 sex and age-matched controls with normal birth weight. Main outcome measures: Objective clinical findings (visual acuity, stereo acuity and cycloplegic refraction) were recorded. Structured history taking was used to identify visual difficulties. The intellectual level was assessed with the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC). All VLBW adolescents underwent MRI of the brain. Results: Significant differences were found between the VLBW adolescents and controls regarding visual acuity (median -0.11 and -0.2, respectively, p = 0.004), stereo acuity (median 60″ and 30″, respectively, p<0.001), prevalence of astigmatism (11/58 and 0/55, respectively, p<0.001) and in full-scale IQ (mean IQ 85 and 97, respectively, p<0.001) and performance IQ (mean 87 and 99, respectively, p = 0.002). The structured history also revealed a borderline significant difference between the groups (mean problems 0.46 and 0.15 respectively, p = 0.051). 30% (17/57) of the VLBW adolescents had abnormal MRI findings and performed worse in all tests, compared with both the VLBW adolescents without MRI pathology and the normal controls. Conclusion: This study confirms previous observations that VLBW adolescents are at a disadvantage regarding visual outcome compared with those with normal birth weight. In 47%, visual dysfunction was associated with abnormal MRI findings and in 33% with learning disabilities. The adolescents with abnormal MRI findings had more pronounced visual and cognitive dysfunction. The findings indicate a cerebral causative component for the visual dysfunction seen in the present study.

    Asthma in Swedish children conceived by in vitro fertilisation2013In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 98, no 2, p. 92-96Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives To investigate a proposed association between in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and child asthma. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanDesign The risk for asthma after IVF was estimated as ORs using Mantel-Haenszel analysis. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanSetting The Swedish Medical Birth Register. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanPatients Of the 2 628 728 children born in 1982-2007 and surviving the perinatal period, 31 918 were conceived by IVF. Presence of asthma was defined as at least five prescriptions of antiasthmatic drugs during the period 1 July 2005-31 December 2009 according to the Swedish Prescribed Drug Register (115 767 children, 2323 of whom were born after IVF). less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanResults A significantly increased risk for asthma, albeit small, was found in children conceived by IVF (aOR 1.28, 95% CI 1.23 to 1.34), increasing the absolute risk from 4.4% to 5.6%. The risk increase for asthma was the same in boys and girls, in singletons and twins, and after caesarean section and vaginal delivery. The risk was higher for preterm than term singletons. For children with a low Apgar score, respiratory diagnoses, mechanical ventilation, continuous positive airway pressure or neonatal sepsis, the effect of IVF on asthma risk was low and statistically non-significant. Adjustment for length of involuntary childlessness eliminated the effect, and removal of infants whose mothers had used antiasthmatics in early pregnancy reduced the risk. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanConclusions This study verifies an association between IVF and asthma in children. This can be partly explained by neonatal morbidity and by maternal asthma acting as mediators, but the main risk factor is parental subfertility. The mechanism for this is unclear.

    Use of healthcare resources, family function, and socioeconomic support during the first four years after preterm birth2003In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 88, no 5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: To assess the use of healthcare resources for preterm infants and to evaluate family function and socioeconomic support in a defined population from birth to 4 years of age. Methods: In a prospective case-control study, 39 singleton preterm infants without prenatal abnormalities born during an 18 month period were studied together with their families. The population consisted of 19 very preterm infants (less than 32 weeks) and 20 randomised moderate preterm infants (32-35 weeks), and the control group comprised 39 full term infants. Contacts with medical services, child health services, and the social welfare system were registered, and family function and life events were studied. Results: The preterm children were more often readmitted to hospital (odds ratio (OR) 6.6, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.0 to 22.1) and had more outpatient attendances (OR 5.6, 95% CI 2.1 to 15.0) during their first year of life. Mothers in the preterm group more often used temporary parental allowance than the control mothers (p < 0.001). The number of contacts with the child health services and the social welfare system did not differ significantly from the controls. Neither was there any significant difference with regard to family function or life events at 4 years of age. Conclusions: A large proportion of the premature children used specialist care during the first years of life. However, the families of the preterm infants were socially well adapted up to four years after birth compared with the control families.

    Photopheresis at onset of type 1 diabetes: A randomised, double blind, placebo controlled trial2001In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 85, no 2, p. 149-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background - In recent years photopheresis, an extracorporeal form of photochemotherapy using psoralen and ultraviolet A irradiation of leucocytes, has been claimed to be an effective form of immunomodulation. Aim - To evaluate its effect in type 1 diabetes we performed a double blind, controlled study using placebo tablets and sham pheresis in the control group. Methods - A total of 49 children, aged 10-18 years of age at diagnosis of type 1 diabetes were included, 40 fulfilled the study and were followed for three years (19 received active treatment with photopheresis and 21 placebo treatment). Results - The actively treated children secreted significantly more C peptide in urine during follow up than control children. C peptide values in serum showed corresponding differences between the two groups. The insulin dose/kg body weight needed to achieve satisfactory HbA1c values was always lower in the photopheresis group, there was no difference between the groups regarding HbAlc values during follow up. The treatment was well accepted except for nausea (n = 3) and urticaria (n = 1) in the actively treated group. There were no differences regarding weight or height, or episodes of infection between the two groups during follow up. Conclusion - Photopheresis does have an effect in addition to its possible placebo effect, shown as a weak but significant effect on the disease process at the onset of type 1 diabetes, an effect still noted after three years of follow up.

    Birth anthropometric measures, body mass index and allergic diseases in a birth cohort study (BAMSE)2007In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 92, no 10, p. 881-886Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: We aimed to assess increased birth weight or birth length in relation to allergic diseases at 4 years of age, taking body mass index (BMI) at age 4 as a covariate in the adjustment. Methods: The parents of a large prospective birth cohort answered questionnaires on environmental factors and allergic symptoms when their children were 2 months and 1, 2 and 4 years old. Perinatal data on weight and length at birth were received from the child care health centres. The children were clinically examined at 4 years of age and height and weight recorded. Blood was drawn for analysis of specific IgE antibodies to common inhalant allergens. Risk associations between birth anthropometric measures and wheeze, allergic diseases or sensitisation were estimated in multivariate logistic regression analyses (n = 2869). Results: There were no clear overall associations between birth weight and allergic diseases at 4 years of age. Birth length ≥90th percentile was inversely associated with any wheeze at age 4 (adjusted OR 0.64, 95% Cl 0.44 to 0.92) but was significantly associated only with late-onset wheeze (adjusted OR 0.40, 95% Cl 0.21 to 0.77). No such associations were seen for persistent or transient wheeze, eczema, rhinitis or allergic sensitisation. Transient wheeze during the first 2 years of age tended to be associated with increased BMI at age 4. Conclusion: Increased birth weight was not associated with wheeze or allergic disease. Increased birth length may play a protective role in late-onset wheeze in early childhood.

    Prevention of severe hypoglycaemia in type I diabetes: A randomised controlled population study2003In: Archives of Disease in Childhood, ISSN 0003-9888, E-ISSN 1468-2044, Vol. 88, no 3, p. 240-245Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: To investigate use of targeted self study material in type I diabetes patient education regarding dissemination, perceived patient benefit, and prevention of severe hypoglycaemia. Methods: In a randomised 1:1:1 controlled study, 332 patients with type I diabetes (aged 2.6-18.9 years) were studied, 313 completed clinical follow up, 261 completed endpoint questionnaire. The intervention group received videotapes and a brochure designed to review skills for self control and treatment, aimed at preventing severe hypoglycaemia. Two control groups received a videotape and brochure with general diabetes information, or traditional treatment only, respectively. Results: Yearly incidence of severe hypoglycaemia decreased from 42% to 27% in the intervention group, but not in controls. HbA1c remained unchanged. Levels of use ranged from 1 to 20 times (median 2), 40-49% had shown the materials to friends, relatives, school staff, sports coaches, etc (there was little difference between intervention and control groups). Higher benefit and learning levels resulted from the intervention material, especially in patients with severe hypoglycaemia. Conclusions: Mass distributed pedagogical devices such as high quality video programmes and brochures may contribute to the prevention of severe hypoglycaemia. Such self study materials can reach high dissemination levels and constitute a cost effective complement to regular visits to a diabetes team and to other types of education. The findings may have implications for other topics, other ages, and other diagnosis groups.
