CHEST XRAY ABNORMAL PATTERN RAE AP: >1/3 of the right RVE AP: apex upturned / rounded Lateral: obliteration of the retrosternal space; filled only normally. Displacement of LV posteriorly. Behind shadow of IVC LAE AP: increased distance between the right wall of the left atrium and left main stem bronchus (double density); 3.5cm for infants, 4.5cm for children; Prominence of left atrial appendage or so called disappearance of cardiac waistline; elevation of left main stem bronchus. Lateral: elevation of left main stem bronchus; discrete bulge in the region of the left atrium which pushes the esophagus posteriorly LVE AP: prominent left heart border and mid-left heart concavity with apex displaced posteriorly and meets IVC at the diaphragm level MYOCARIDAL INFARCTION IN CHILDREN ECG Findings New onset wide Q waves (>0.035 sec) seen within first few hours and persistent over several years ST-segment elevation (>2mm) seen within the first few hours Diphasic T waves seen within first few days (beginning sharply inverted) then normalizing over time Prolonged QT interval (>0.44 sec) with accompanying abnormal Q waves Deep wide Q waves in Leads I, avL, or V6 contrast Q waves in II, III, avF Other criteria Elevated creatinine kinase / MB although this is not specific for detection of acute MI in children Cardiac Troponin I is a more sensitive indicator of early myocardial damage in children elevated within hours of cardiac injury, persists for 4-7 days, specific for cardiac injury CARDIOVASCULAR MEDICATIONS Inotropes: agents that improve myocardial contractility and enhance stroke volume Pressors: agents that increase systemic vascular resistance and increase blood pressure Chronotropic: Increase heart rate Lusotropic: improve relaxation during diastole and decrease EDP in the ventricles ALPHA-ADRENERGIC MEDICATIONS Alpha1-adrenergic effects: Vascular smooth muscle contraction Alpha2-adrenergic effects: Vascular smooth muscle relaxation--this is a very mild effect only at low doses of an alpha-adrenergic agent like epinephrine. BETA-ADRENERGIC MEDICATIONS Beta1-adrenergic effects:Direct cardiac effects: (a) Inotropy (improved cardiac contractility) (b) Chronotropy (increased heart rate) Beta2-adrenergic effects: (a) Vasodilation (b) Bronchodilation CARDIAC MEDS VIA CONTINUOUS INFUSION EPINEPHRINE Both an alpha- and beta-adrenergic agent Indications for its use as a continuous infusion are: o low cardiac output state beta effects will improve cardiac function alpha effects may increase afterload and decrease cardiac output septic shock - useful for both inotropy and vasoconstriction Actions are dose dependent (mcg/kg/min): o 0.02-0.08 = mostly beta1 and beta2 stimulation. increased cardiac output mild vasodilation o 0.1-2.0 = mix of beta1 and alpha1 increase cardiac output increase SVR = vasoconstriction o > 2.0 = mostly alpha1 increase SVR, and may decrease CO by increasing afterload Side effects include: Anxiety, tremors,palpitations Tachycardia and tachyarrhythmias Pedia Notes

Increased myocardial oxygen requirements and potential to cause ischemia Decreased splanchnic and hepatic circulation (AST, ALT) Anti-Insulin effects: lactic acidosis, hyperglycemia NOREPINEPHRINE Employed primarily for its alpha agonist effect - increases SVR (and B.P.) without significantly increasing C.O. Used in cases of low SVR and hypotension such as profound warm shock with a normal or high C.O. state Infusion rates titrated between 0.05 to 1 mcg/kg/min o In general, norepinephrine differs from epinephrine in that at doses used in clinical practice, the vasoconstriction outweighs any increase in cardiac output. i.e. norepinephrine usually increases blood pressure and SVR, often without increasing cardiac output. Side Effects: Similar to those of Epinephrine Can compromise perfusion in extremities and may need to be combined with a vasodilator e.g. Dobutamine or Nipride More profound effect on sphlancnic circulation and myocardial oxygen consumption DOPAMINE Intermediate product in the enzymatic pathway leading to the production of norepinephrine; thus, it indirectly acts by releasing norepinephrine. Directly has alpha, beta and dopaminergic actions (dose-dependent) Indications are based on the adrenergic actions desired. Improve renal perfusion 2-5 mcg/kg/min Improve C.O. in mild to moderate Cardiogenic or Distributive Shock 510mcg/kg/min Post-resuscitation stabilization in patients with hypotension (in conjuction with fluid therapy) 10-20mcg/kg/min DOBUTAMINE Synthetic catecholamine with inotropic effect (increases stroke volume) and peripheral vasodilation (decreases afterload) Positive chronotropic effect (increases HR) Some lusotropic effect Overall, improves Cardiac Output by above beta-agonist acitivity o Major metabolite is 3-O-methyldobutamine, a potent inhibitor of alphaadrenoceptors.Therefore, vasodilation is possible secondary to this metabolite. Usual starting infusion rate is: 5 mcg/kg/min, with the dose being titrated to effect up to 20 mcg/kg/min. Used in low C.O. states and CHF e.g. myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, myocardial infarction If BP adequate, can be combined with afterload reducer (Nipride or ACE inhibitor) In combination with Epi/Norepi in profound shock states to improve Cardiac Output and provide some peripheral vasodilatation MILRINONE/AMRINONE Belong to new class of agents Bipyridines Non-receptor mediated activity based on selective inhibition of Phosphodiesterase Type III enzyme resulting in cAMP accumulation in myocardium cAMP increases force of contraction and rate and extent of relaxation of myocardium Inotropic, vasodilator and lusotropic effect AMRINONE First generation agent - limited use now Long half-life (4.4 hours) with potential for prolonged hypotension after loading dose Associated with thrombocytopenia Dosage: Load with 0.75 mg/kg with infusion rate of 5-10 mcg/kg/min Milrinone is preferred drug from this group MILRINONE Increases CO by improving contractility, decreased SVR, PVR (?), lusotropic effect; decreased preload due to vasodilatation Unique in beneficial effects on RV function Half-life is 1-2 hours Load with 50 mcg/kg over 30 mins followed by 0.3 to 0.75 mcg/kg/min No increase in myocardial O2 requirement

VASODILATORS Classified by site of action Venodilators: reduce preload - Nitroglycerin Arteriolar dilators: reduce afterload Minoxidil and Hydralazine Combined: act on both arterial and venous beds and reduce both pre- and afterload Sodium Nitroprusside (Nipride) NITROPRUSSIDE Vasodilator that acts directly on arterial and venous vascular smooth muscle. Indicated in hypertension and low cardiac output states with increased SVR. Also used in post-operative cardiac surgery to decrease afterload on an injured heart. Action is immediate; half-life is short; titratable action. Toxicity is with cyanide, one of the metabolites of the breakdown of nipride. Severe, unexplained metabolic acidosis might suggest cyanide toxicity. Dose starts at 0.5 mcg/kg/min and titrate to 5 mcg/kg/min to desired effect. May go higher (up to 10 mcg/kg/min) for short periods of time. NITROGLYCERIN Direct vasodilator as well, but the major effect is as a venodilator with lesser effect on arterioles. Not as effective as nitroprusside in lowering blood pressure. Another potential benefit is relaxation of the coronary arteries, thus improving myocardial regional blood flow and myocardial oxygen demand. Used to improve myocardial perfusion following cardiac surgery Dose ranges from 0.5 to 8 mcg/kg/min. Typical dose is 2 mcg/kg/min for 24 to 48 hours post-operatively Methemoglobinemia is potential side effect ISOPROTERENOL Synthetic catecholamine Non-specific beta agonist with minimal alpha-adrenergic effects. Causes inotropy, chronotropy, and systemic and pulmonary vasodilatation. Indications: bradycardia, decreased cardiac output, bronchospasm (bronchodilator). No longer available in some markets Occasionally used to maintain heart rate following heart transplantation. Dose starts at 0.01 mcg/kg/min and is increased to 1.0 mcg/kg/min for desired effect. INHALED NITRIC OXIDE Selective Pulmonary vasodilator Dilates only pulmonary capillaries to alveoli participating in gas exchange Decreases intrapulmonary shunt and improves V/Q matching Rapidly inactivated by Hgb in pulm. cap. so no systemic side effects (eg hypotension) Potential for use in ARDS and Pulmonary Hypertension Currently only approved for use in neonatal Pulmonary Hypertension Expensive Special monitoring equipment required Dose: Concentration of 0.5-60 ppm in inhaled gas CARDIAC ARREST MEDICATIONS EPINEPHRINE Both an alpha- and beta-adrenergic agent During an cardiac arrest, most think it has the greatest benefit by alpha-adrenergic actions, increasing afterload and thus diastolic blood pressure, leading to improved coronary artery perfusion. Indications: o Cardiac arrest o Severe bronchospasm o Anaphylactic reactions Route of Administration o IV or IO o SQ or IM (for bronchospasm) o ET (cardiac arrest without IV or IO access) Pedia Notes

Dosage: o initial (low) dose: 0.01 mg/kg o = 0.1 cc/kg of 1:10,000 o subsequent (high) doses: 0.1 mg/kg o = (0.1 cc/kg of 1:1,000) ATROPINE Parasympathetic (not an alpha- or beta-adrenergic) agent--acts by blocking cholinergic stimulation of the muscarinic receptors of the heart. Results in an increase in the sinus rate of the heart. Little effect on systemic vascular resistance or myocardial contractility. Indications: o Bradycardia o Second or third degree heart block o Asystole o Pulseless electrical activity (electrical mechanical dissociation) o Route of Administration: IV, IO, ET, SQ, IM, nebulization Dosage: o 10 to 20 mcg/kg o minimum dose is 0.1 mg--smaller doses may cause reflex bradycardia (central stimulatory effect on the medullary vagal nuclei) o maximum (adult) dose is 2 mg SODIUM BICARBONATE Use during CPR remains a controversial issue due to lack of evidence showing benefit from receiving bicarbonate. Elevates blood pH by binding with hydrogen to form water and CO2 HCO-3 + H+ => H2CO3 => H2O + CO2 Must have adequate ventilation to remove CO2 or respiratory acidosis will worsen Adverse effects of acidosis: o Cardiac Decrease contractility Lower threshold for ventricular fibrillation Decrease responsiveness to catecholamines o Vascular Decrease systemic vascular resistance Decrease systemic vascular responsiveness to catecholamines Increase pulmonary vascular resistance Indications: o Pre-existing acidosis o Prolonged CPR (after 10 minutes) o Pulmonary hypertensive crisis o Hyperkalemia Route of administration: IV, IO o Dosage: 1-2 meq/kg/dose (1 meq/cc or 0.5 meq/cc) CALCIUM Current recommendations for the use of calcium during CPR are restricted to a few specific situations. Intracellular calcium plays an important role in the process of cell death, but no studies have shown that transient hypercalcemia worsens outcome after cardiac arrest. Adverse Effects of Hypocalcemia o Decreased myocardial contractility o Decreased systemic vascular resistance o Decreased catecholamine release o Decreased cardiovascular response to catecholamines Indications: o Hypocalcemia Ionized hypocalcemia may result from severe alkalosis or after large transfusions of citrated blood products. o Hyperkalemia o Hypermagnesemia o Calcium channel blocker overdose Route of administration: o IV, IO only o Calcium chloride--central venous line o Calcium gluconate--peripheral venous line Dosage: o Calcium chloride = 10-20 mg/kg o Calcium gluconate = 100-200 mg/kg

LIDOCAINE Class 1B antiarrhythmic Decreases automaticity threshold and ventricular fibrillation threshold. Effective in terminating PVCs. Rarely used in pediatric arrests as ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation are not commonplace. Indications: o Ventricular Tachycardia o Ventricular Fibrillation o Frequent PVCs Route of Administration: IV, IO, ET o Dosage: 1 mg/kg/dose (may need up to 2.5 mg/kg ET) ENDOTRACHEAL MEDICATIONS (LEAN) o Lidocaine o Epinephrine o Atropine o Naloxone (Narcan) CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE

INFECTIVE ENDOCARDITIS (Duke criteria) Major criteria (1) positive blood cultures (two separate cultures for a usual pathogen, two or more for less typical pathogens) and (2) evidence of endocarditis on echocardiography (intracardiac mass on a valve or other site, regurgitant flow near a prosthesis, abscess, partial dehiscence of prosthetic valves, or new valve regurgitant flow) Minor criteria (1) predisposing conditions (2) fever (3) embolic-vascular signs (4) immune complex phenomena (glomerulonephritis, arthritis, rheumatoid factor, Osler nodes, Roth spots) (5) a single positive blood culture or serologic evidence of infection (6) echocardiographic signs not meeting the major criteria. Definite Endocarditis: Two major criteria, one major and three minor, or five minor criteria KAWASAKI DISEASE Clinical and Laboratory Features EPIDEMIOLOGIC CASE DEFINITION (CLASSIC CLINICAL CRITERIA) Fever persisting at least 5 days Presence of at least 4 principal features: Changes in extremities Acute: Erythema of palms, soles; edema of hands, feet Subacute: Periungual peeling of fingers, toes in weeks 2 and 3 Polymorphous exanthema Bilateral bulbar conjunctival injection without exudates Changes in lips and oral cavity: Erythema, lips cracking, strawberry tongue, diffuse injection of oral and pharyngeal mucosae Cervical lymphadenopathy (>1.5 cm diameter), usually unilateral Exclusion of other diseases with similar findings 3 Clinical phases: Acute Febrile Phase ( 1-2 weeks ) fever, conjuctivitis, erythema, rash Subacute Phase ( 2-4 weeks ) begins when the fever stops desquamation, thrombocytosis, coronary aneurysms Convalescent Phase ( 4-6 Weeks ) resolution of all sign & symptoms labs return to normal coronary aneurysms persists Coronary Aneurysms Classification of CAA Small - <5mm internal diameter Medim - 5-8 mm internal diameter Large - >8 mm internal diameter Treatment Acute Stage Intravenous Immunoglobulin: 2g/kg over 10-12 hours With Aspirin (80-100 mkd) q6, until day 14 of illness and afebrile for 48 to 72 hrs This therapy should be instituted within the 1st 10 days of illness and if possible within 7 days of illness. Convalescent Stage Aspirin (3-5 mkd) OD, until the patient shows no evidence of CA changes by 6-8 weeks after the onset of illness. IVIG also should be administered to children presenting after the 10th day of illness Long Term: Coronary Abnormalities Aspirin (3-5 mkd) divided dosed, continued indefinitely High dose intravenous gammaglobulin (IVIG) effective in preventing the occurrence of coronary artery abnormalities in KD. Patients treated with IVGG have a significant increase in T suppressor cells, a decrease in circulating activated T helper cells, and a decrease in spontaneous IgG and IgM synthesis. suggest that IVGG reduces the vasculitis in KD by suppressing the marked immune activation associated with this disease. Pedia Notes

Measles and Varicella immunization should be deferred for 11 months after child receives high-dose of IVIG Even when treated with high-dose of IVIG within the 1st 10 days of illness, 5% of children develop at the least transient coronary artery dilation and 1% develop giant aneurysms. Careful monitoring is necessary during the administration of gamma globulin because it rarely can cause an allergic-like reaction.

Treatment 1.Phenobarbital - may be used for sedation because it stimulates metabolic clearance of thyroid hormone by the liver 2. PTU - 600-1000 mg (12-20 mg/kg) loading dose, followed by 200-300 mg (4-6 mg/kg) every 4-6 hrs orally. The drug of choice because of its inhibition of peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 in addition to its inhibition of synthesis of thyroid hormone Pedia Notes Page 8 /epcapul

3. Methimazole (alternative) - given as a loading dose of 60-100 mg (1.22 mg/kg), followed by 20-30 mg (0.4-0.7 mg/kg) every 6-8 hrs orally 4. Inorganic iodine -Ideally, iodine therapy should be administered 2 hrs after initial thiourea dosing, to allow for initial blockade of iodine organification. Saturated solution of potassium iodide (children, 5 drops, 250 mg, 2-4 times/day, infants 2 drops 4 times/day) and Lugol solution (4-8 drops 3 times/day) 5. Lithium therapy - (300 mg or 6 mg/kg every 6 hrs) may be used in addition to iodine to block thyroid hormone release 6.High-dose corticosteroids - Hydrocortisone 50-100 mg, IV, every 6-8 hrs or 25-50 mg/m2 body surface - effective in blocking peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 7.-adrenergic blocking agent - -blockers (e.g., propranolol, 40-80 mg, 0.5 mg/kg, orally, or 1-3 mg/dose IV, every 4-8 hrs; Given in the absence of cardiac failure, effective in reducing tachycardia, hypertension, and adrenergic symptoms associated with thyrotoxicosis * medical therapy should be used for weeks to months before definitive treatment with radioactive iodine or thyroidectomy Indications for thyroidectomy Thyroid cancer Prophylactic thyroidectomy in children with MEN-2 A large multinodular goiter Graves disease (including young children, not responding to antithyroid drugs, in whom radioactive iodine is contraindicated) Steroids Hydrocortisone 50-100mg/m2 as loading dose then 50-100mg/m2 in divided doses q6 4 Hydrocortisone = 1 Prednisone 25 Hydrocortisone = 1 Dexamethasone Taper 25% every week Glucocorticoid Comparison Chart Name Equivale Relative Relative Plasm Biologi nt Dose AntiMineralocorticoi a c (mg) inflammator d Potency Half- Halfy Potency life life Short-acting Cortisone 25 0.8 2 0.5 8-12 Hydrocortisone 20 1 2 1.5-2 8-12 Intermediate-acting Methylprednisolo 4 5 0 1.5-3 18-36 ne Prednisone 5 4 1 1 18-36 Prednisolone 5 4 1 2-3.5 18-36 Triamcinolone 4 5 0 3.5-4 18-36 Long-acting Betamethasone 0.6 20-30 0 5.5 36-54 Dexamethasone 0.75 20-30 0 2-3.5 36-54 -HCG : 3000mg/BSA
