This article is by a registrar in the UK (like a resident here in the US) reflecting on her gratitude to the people who work overnights in the hospital, and who saved the life of her son.  http://buff.ly/1h421AD

This brought a smile on my face on my commute in this morning. This is an amazing use of technology to save a baby with severe tracheomalacia-- a condition where the cartilage rings which hold the trachea (airway from mouth to lungs) open are weak at birth. In most cases this is a mild condition which resolves in the first year or two of life but it rarely can be severe and almost impossible to manage.  http://buff.ly/1gEZXid

Can you imagine other scenarios where 3-D printing can help patients with previously intractable conditions? Amazing.

Stanford research shows pitfalls of #homework Stanford research shows pitfalls of #homework http://buff.ly/1fwwMli This coupled with too early school start times, leads to lack of sleep. I feel like the amount of homework my patients have is really excessive compared to what I had in the late 80s. My first grade has homework every night and I can't remember homework until third or fourth grade. How do other parents feel about the amount of homework their children have to complete?

hum, it seems that the claims are based on a survey, which is kind of asking students: "would you prefer having less homework, and do you think you could see your friends more if you had less".... is it the case?

Many parents struggle with the diagnosis of #asthma in their child as they imagine that this will prevent them from being successful at sports. However, this is not the case; in fact, many top level athletes have asthma. Do any of you have asthma? How has it affected your performance in athletic pursuits?

Interesting work here showing that early morning light exposure is associated with lower body mass index. It is unclear how these effects would work in children, although I would guess that they are relatively modest.  http://buff.ly/1lsG4Qm
People who are exposed to light earlier in the day are slimmer, a study finds. That doesn't mean morning sunshine helps people lose weight. But it matches other evidence on light and health.

Once again, "springing ahead" is upon as as we adjust our clocks to re-enter daylight savings time. This shift in the spring helps the parents of early risers (little children, usually) and may make it harder on teens and their families. Here is how you can prepare a teenager for navigating this transition. 


I find that DST is frequently associated with sleep duration for a week or so in my kids regardless of the direction of the shift. Anyone else have similar experiences?

In the second part of my series on understanding why you fall asleep, I'm tackling the #circadian or body clock system. This is a little harder to understand than the homeostatic system (the longer you are awake, the sleepier you are) but is an important topic especially when understanding the sleep patterns of teenagers.

This is a complicated topic, so let me know if you have further questions or need clarification.

Pediatric pulmonary and sleep physician
Introduction
I’m a pediatrician at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital specializing in the care of children with breathing and sleep problems.

Like all docs, I’ve spent a lot of time in school. I went to Yale University as an undergrad, then working in New York City for a few years before starting medical school at the University of Connecticut. I did my residency in Pediatrics and my fellowship in Pediatric Pulmonology here at MGH and was honored to be asked to stay here since I finished my fellowship in 2007, in the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine. I’m boarded in Pediatrics, Pediatric Pulmonology, and Sleep Medicine. I’m the Medical Director of the Pediatric Sleep Laboratory at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Institute. I have a special interest in the respiratory problems of children of neuromuscular disorders like Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy.

In 2013 I accepted a position at Yale University and am excited to collaborate with my colleagues in the division of Respiratory Medicine with the goal of building a comprehensive pediatric sleep medicine program. 

I live outside New Haven with my lovely wife and our two little boys, who are ages 5 and 2 years old respectively. They are a riot. Once my first son was born I realized that there is sometimes a gulf between textbook “perfect” parenting, and what actually works in the real world.

I will be seeing patients at three venues to start.
1.    Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, 1 Park St, New Haven, CT  06519
2.    Yale Specialty Center at Norwalk, 747 Belden Ave., Norwalk, CT  06850
3.    Yale Specialty Center at Long Wharf, 1 Long Wharf Dr., New Haven, CT  06519
