"Satisfaction with care and decision making among patents/caregivers in the pediatric intensive care unit: a comparison between english-speaking whites and latinos"
Because of previously documented health care disparities, we hypothesized that English-speaking Latino parents/caregivers would be less satisfied with care and decision making than English-speaking non-Latino white (NLW) parents/caregivers. This research is among a cohort of scientific publications addressing healthcare disparities.
"The effect of neighborhood and individual characteristics on pediatric critical illness"
The relationship between neighborhood/individual characteristics and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) outcomes is largely unexplored. We hypothesized that individual-level racial/ethnic minority status and neighborhood-level low socioeconomic status and minority concentration would adversely affect children's severity of illness on admission to the PICU. This research is among a cohort of scientific publications addressing healthcare disparities.
"Psychometric evaluation of a modified version of the family satisfaction in the ICU survey in parents/caregivers of critically ill children"
The Family Satisfaction in the Intensive Care Unit 24 (FS-ICU 24) survey consists of two domains (overall care and medical decision-making) and was validated only for family members of adult patients in the ICU. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the internal consistency and construct validity of the FS-ICU 24 survey modified for parents/caregivers of pediatric patients. This research is part of a cohort of scientific publications on healthcare satisfaction.
"Effect of race on the timing of the Glenn and Fontan procedures for single-ventricle congenital heart disease"
Disparities in health care have been documented between different racial groups in the United States. We hypothesize that there will be racial variance in the timing of the Glenn and Fontan procedures for children with single-ventricle physiology. This research is part of a cohort of scientific publications addressing healthcare disparities.
"Recurrent delirium after surgery for congenital heart disease in an infant"
The objective of this article is to describe a case of recurrent delirium after cardiac surgery in an infant. This report is part of a cohort of case report scientific publications.
"Where in the world is WALDO (Why Adrenal Levels Defy Observation)? Hemodynamic correlates of serum cortisol in neonates after cardiopulmonary bypass"
This research editorial evaluates an article from the category of scientific publications evaluating serum cortisol levels after cardiopulmonary bypass.
"Race/Ethnicity is not associated with mortality in the PICU"
This research was performed to determine if a difference in survival exists between children of different racial/ethnic groups who were admitted to the PICU, after controlling for severity of illness (pediatric index of mortality 2). It falls under the category of scientific publications addressing healthcare disparities.
"A history of pediatric critical care medicine"
This is a historical review of the creation and evolution of the subspecialty of pediatric critical care medicine and falls under the category of scientific publications reporting the history of medicine.

This is a textbook chapter that discusses cardiovascular physiology and shock as it pertains to the infant and child with critical heart disease and incorporates the appropriate scientific publications and research involved in this area.
"The clinical course of acquired complete heart block in children with acute myocarditis"
This article falls under the category of case report scientific publications and specifically discusses complete heart block in a child with acute myocarditis.
"Index of suspicion: case 3 - anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery"
This article falls under the category of case report scientific publications and specifically discusses the condition of anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery in an infant.
"Medical complications of female genital mutilation"
This article falls under the category of case report scientific publications and specifically discusses medical complications of female genital mutilation seen in an adolescent with the condition.
