Television, sleep, outdoor play and BMI in young children: the GECKO Drenthe cohort.

Television, sleep, outdoor play and BMI in young children: the GECKO Drenthe cohort.

Eur J Pediatr. 2014 Nov 1;

Authors: Sijtsma A, Koller M, Sauer PJ, Corpeleijn E

Abstract
In this study, we investigated the interplay between screen time, sleep duration, outdoor play, having a television in the bedroom and the number of televisions at home and their association with body mass index (BMI) in preschool children. All participants, 3-4 years of age (n = 759), were part of the Groningen expert center for kids with obesity (GECKO) Drenthe birth cohort. Weight and height were measured. Total screen time, number of televisions at home, a television in the bedroom, sleep duration and time of outdoor play were self-reported by parents in a questionnaire. Ordinary least square (OLS) regression-based path analysis was used to estimate direct and indirect effects on BMI in mediation models. A television in the bedroom or more televisions at home gave a higher screen time, which were associated with decreased sleep duration and resulted in higher BMI (indirect effect = 0.0115, 95 % bootstrap interval = 0.0016; 0.0368 and indirect effect = 0.0026, 95 % bootstrap interval = 0.0004; 0.0078, respectively). In contrast to the direct effect of screen time, sleep duration and a television in the bedroom on BMI, no direct effect was found for outdoor play and number or televisions at home on BMI. Conclusions: Short sleep duration, long screen time and a television in the bedroom were associated with the presence of overweight in preschool children.

Pediatric acute liver failure: variations in referral timing are associated with disease subtypes.

Pediatric acute liver failure: variations in referral timing are associated with disease subtypes.

Eur J Pediatr. 2014 Jul 9;

Authors: Sturm E, Lexmond WS, Verkade HJ

Abstract
In pediatric acute liver failure (PALF), rapid referral to a transplant center (TC) is advocated. Clinical variability of PALF may influence referral timing. We aimed to analyze early or late timing of referral in relation to clinical characteristics and outcome in PALF. We conducted a retrospective, single-center, comparative analysis of clinical and liver function parameters in two PALF cohorts (n = 23 per cohort): cohort 1 (early referral, duration of in-patient care before referral (DCR) <7 days) vs. cohort 2 (late referral, DCR ≥ 7 days). Compared to late referrals, patients referred early were more frequently non-icteric and encephalopathic at initial presentation (n = 14 vs. 5 and n = 13 vs. 4, each p < 0.05). Early referred PALF patients had lower hepatic encephalopathy (HE) grades and bilirubin (grade 1 vs. 2, p < 0.02; 215 vs. 439 μmol/l, p < 0.001, respectively) but higher alanine aminotransferase (ALAT) levels (4,340 vs. 963 U/l, p < 0.001). Cumulative poor prognostic indicators were lower in early referrals (2 vs. 4, p < 0.001). In multivariate analysis, subacute liver failure (SLF >7 days between disease onset and development of encephalopathy) was independently associated with late referral (relative risk 9.48; 95 % CI 1.37-64.85, p < 0.02). Differences in survival to discharge were not significant. Conclusion: In PALF, referral timing variability is associated with distinct clinical and liver function patterns. Early recognition of prognostic indicators and of SLF may help to improve referral timing and thus PALF management.
