Hello Friends 👋,
This week's journal club focuses on a few topics. We have three articles discussing sepsis-related topics. The first articles compared the sensitivity of the EOS calculator and the NICE/Dutch guidelines for the evalution of early onset sepsis. Daphna reviewed a paper from Pediatrics that looked out how many infants with low-risk for EOS were evaluated for sepsis, started on antibiotics and how long were they on antibiotics for (very interesting work from our friend Dustin Flannery). We also reviewed a paper proposing an interesting framework to approach "culture negative" sepsis. Other than sepsis, we reviewed two papers from both 🇫🇷 and 🇨🇳 looking at the effect of vitamin D levels on neonatal RDS. To close the show we discussed the latest report of the neonatal research network (https://neonatal.rti.org) that published its outcomes from 2013-2018, so much interesting data in that paper.
We hope you enjoy this episode. Thank you for listening and for your support.
