EXPERIENCE OF CGM (CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING) FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS IN A PEDRIATRIC DIABETES UNIT.Graciela Louu2020, Gemma Larramonau2021, Teresa Montaneru2021, Sara Barbedu2020u2020Hospital Pediu00e1trico Miguel Servetu2021 Universidad de ZaragozaObjective: Estimate the use of CGM in a Pediatric Diabetes Unit from a Spanish region. To find out differences between the different CGM systems (included flash type or intermittent) and according to the type of treatment. To analyze the metabolic control, frequency of mild and severe hypoglycaemia among the same patients before and after using CGM and to compare patients with and without CGM.Methods: Data are collected from September to December 2017, from patients whose diagnosis was between 2003 and 2017. Patients are grouped in age groups (5; 6-10; 10) and demographic, metabolic control and treatment variables are collected.Results: 120 patients collaborated, implying a response of 80%.70% use MDI, of which 48% use CGM, being 89% in the case of patients using CSII. In older than 10 years there is a predilection for intermittent measurement systems, unlike those under 5 years prefer continuous measurement. The use of CGM significantly reduces HbA1c compared to those who do not use them and significantly reduces the number of mild hypoglycaemia, with the disappearance of severe hypoglycaemia in 6 months. 43% of patients reduce the number of glycemias/day significantly after 6 months of use. CGM decreases almost a 5% the HbAc1 value and a 19% the Coefficient of Variation. Conclusion: There exists an improvement in the metabolic control and the glycemic variability of using CGM. Hypoglycemia is diminished by GCM, to a greater extent by the Integrated sensor-augmented pump system. Adolescents prefer to use intermittent measurement systems, reducing the number of glycemia/d.

Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology is a comprehensive introduction to the field. It covers theoretical and methodological foundations and examines the characteristics, epidemiology, etiology, developmental course, assessment, and treatment of disorders of childhood and adolescence. At the heart of the text is the partnership of the developmental psychopathology perspective, which analyzes problems of youth within a developmental context, and a traditional clinical/disorder approach, which underscores the symptoms, causes, and treatments of disorders. Woven throughout the text is the view that behavior stems from the continuous interaction of multiple influences, that the problems of the young are intricately tied to their social and cultural contexts, and that empirical approaches and the scientific method provide the best avenue for understanding the complexity of human behavior. This edition explores the latest areas of research and tackles important contemporary topics, including: how to best classify and diagnose problems the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework the roles of genetics and early brain development and their interaction with the environment the complex roles of family and peers; sex/gender; and culture, ethnicity, and race in psychopathology progress in early intervention and prevention improvements in accessibility and dissemination of evidence-based treatments social issues such as poverty, child maltreatment, substance use, bullying/victimization, and terrorism and war This edition also features a new full-color design and over 150 color figures, tables, and photos. The text is written in a clear and engaging style and is approachable for students with varying academic backgrounds and experiences. It is rich in case descriptions that allow students to examine problems through the lens of youth and their families. The "Accent" boxes foster discussion of current interest topics such as infant mental health, scientific evidence regarding vaccines and autism, suicidality in sexual minority youth, and the impact of stigmatization. The "Looking Forward" sections focus students’ attention on the central concepts to be addressed, while the "Looking Back" sections provide students with a synopsis of the chapter an overview of the concepts for further study and reflection. The text is also supplemented with online resources for students and instructors.
