Children visit hospitals and clinics as both patients and visitors. These visits can be made stress free for the children and their parents and be the point of cultivation of a positive health-access behaviour in the future healthcare consumer.

Paediatric friendly healthcare spaces need to be :

  1. Safe (height, blunt-edges, padded non-slippery flooring etc.)
  2. Hygiene friendly (since extra contact surfaces are included i.e play-area/toys etc. all these should be hygiene friendly)
  3. Appealing (lighting, colour scheme, noise etc.)
  4. Engaging (toys, play-areas, wall murals etc.)
  5. Compliant with statutory and mandatory healthcare infrastructural requirements (space allocation to each room and bed type, fire safety, direction signage etc.)

Read the following articles to get a better idea of how we can keep our young patients safe and smiling.

Wry Neck : The chin pulled down towards a shoulder?

Torticollis or Wry Neck is  a rare condition in which the neck muscles contract, causing the head to twist to one side.

Torticollis can be inherited and is seen soon after birth. This form may resolve without treatment.

The most common type causes the chin to pull toward the shoulder. Symptoms include a limited range of head motion, headache or neck pain.

Torticollis in children results due to fibrosis of one of the sternomastoid muscles of the neck.

Injecting botulinum toxin into the affected muscles often reduces the symptoms of torticollis. Physiotherapy or surgery may also be required.

Living donor liver transplantation in small infants is a significant challenge. Liver allografts from adults may be large in size. This is accompanied by problems of graft perfusion, dysfunction, and the inability to achieve primary closure of the abdomen. Monosegment grafts are a way to address these issues. Monosegment grafts are suitable to use for small infants below 6 kg weight.They allow primary closure of the abdomen in a safe and effective manner.
