BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis (HD) in infants is usually used when peritoneal dialysis (PD) has failed. We describe our experience with HD, outlining the morbidity, complications, and outcomes for infants weighing less than 10†kg managed with HD for more than 6†months over a 10-year period. METHODS: A retrospective review of the clinical notes was conducted to collect demographic information, anthropometric data, dietary history, site and form of vascular access, details of HD prescription, complications, and outcomes.

BACKGROUND: Eliminating nosocomial infections was identified as one of eight priorities for action for Ascension Health. St. John Hospital and Medical Center (SJHMC), and St. Vincent's Hospital (STV), designated alpha sites, developed best practices for the prevention of catheter-related blood stream infections (CR-BSIs) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), respectively.

Learning self-hypnosis enables children to partially or totally manage the sensory and emotional components of pain, especially that linked to the use of a central line in paediatric onco-haematology. Specially trained paediatric nurses can teach this special technique.

Vertebral artery pseudoaneurysm (VAP) is the result of the penetrating neck trauma, chiropractic manipulation, vasculopathies and rarely iatrogenic due to internal jugular vein (IJV) catheterization. It should be identified and treated immediately because of its potential risk of rupture. We present a case of a right VAP resulting from jugular vein catheterization, with the Doppler ultrasonography (US), Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings.

Iatrogenic vertebral artery injury (VAI) results from various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The objective of this article is to provide an update on the mechanism of injury and management of this potentially devastating complication. A literature search was conducted using PubMed. The iatrogenic VAIs were categorized according to each diagnostic or therapeutic procedure responsible for the injury, i.e., central venous catheterization, cervical spine surgery, chiropractic manipulation, diagnostic cerebral angiography, percutaneous nerve block, and radiation therapy.
