Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

Narrow-spectrum antibiotics recommended for CAP in children

As reported in Pediatrics, narrow-spectrum antibiotics yielded similar outcomes in children with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) to broad-spectrum antibiotics. The study was conducted in 4 hospital and involved 492 patients between 2 months and 18 years with a discharge diagnosis of CAP. Other than a 10-hour decrease in length of stay in the narrow-spectrum antibiotic groups, the outcomes were similar between the narrow- and broad-spectrum antibiotic groups.

Mean platelet volume predicts silent cerebral infarction

As reported in the Internal Medicine Journal, the mean platelet volume is increased in patients with a silent cerebral infarction than in those without (10.4 vs. 9.2 fL). The OR for silent cerebral infarction was 7.822 in patients in the highest mean platelet volume quartile compared to the lowest quartile.

Persistent unfavorable outcomes after mild TBI

As reported in Brain, Behavior, & Immunity, an elevated CRP level was associated with persistent post-concussion syndrome (OR=2.719), persistent psychological problems (OR=1.535), and persistent cognitive impairment (OR=1.687) in patients with mild traumatic brain injury (n=213).
