How to Practice Belly Breathing - Nemours Children's Health System
 
02:03
Nemours Speech Pathologists Demonstrate Belly Breathing - or Diaphragmatic Breathing • Diaphragmatic breathing is also called “belly breathing.” It’s a deep breath that tells the nervous system to calm down. • When babies are born, they naturally breathe from the belly. But, as kids get older, they start to breathe more shallowly from the chest. • (Demonstrate belly vs chest breathing) • We are going to learn belly breathing in 3 different positions. • First, let’s begin by lying comfortably down on our backs. Put one hand on your chest and one on your belly. Take a slow deep breath through your nose and feel your belly rise. Breathe out and feel your belly flatten. Try to keep the hand on your chest as still as possible. Repeat for 10 breaths. o Place a small object on your belly instead of your hand. Notice it how it moves up and down. • Next, stand up straight. Put one hand on your chest and one on your belly. Breathe in slowly through your nose and feel your belly rise. Breathe out and feel your belly flatten. Try to keep the hand on your chest as still as possible. Repeat for 10 breaths. • Finally, sit in a comfortable position. Place one hand on your chest and one on your belly. Breathe in slowly through your nose and feel your belly rise. Breathe out and feel your belly flatten. Try to keep the hand on your chest as still as possible. Repeat for 10 breaths. • These are the steps to learn belly breathing. Eventually you will want learn to do belly breathing while exercising. • Practice belly breathing in all 3 positions (lying down, sitting, and standing) twice daily, Complete 10 good belly breaths in each position. o The more you practice, the sooner diaphragmatic breathing will become your “automatic” breathing pattern once again!

Stretches to Release Neck and Shoulder Tension and Help Avoid Vocal Cord Attacks -  Nemours
 
02:15
Nemours Speech Therapists Demonstrate Stretches to Release Tension in the Neck and Shoulder Muscles to Help Avoid Vocal Cord Attacks • It is important to properly stretch your neck and shoulder muscles because they connect to your vocal folds. When you stretch, you will reduce your risk for a vocal fold attack. • You will do 10 repetitions of each stretch or hold each for 10 seconds. • Let’s begin with backward shoulder rolls, followed by forward shoulder rolls. Do 10 of each. o We spend much of our day with rounded shoulders, so these stretches are especially important. • Then we will complete 10 shoulder shrugs. Gently shrug your shoulders up and down. o These stretches should never cause pain. If you are experiencing discomfort, decrease your range of motion during the stretch. By range of motion, I mean, don’t move your shoulders up so high. o When you practice these stretches daily, your flexibility should improve. • From there we will bend our right ear toward our right shoulder and hold for 10 seconds. Then we will switch to the left side and hold for 10 seconds. o • Then we will move on to head turns. Keep your head straight and then look to the right and hold for a few seconds and then look to the left. Repeat 10 times. • Next, we will complete head rolls. Drop your chin towards your chest and slowly turn your head to the left and then to the right. Repeat 10 times. • From there we will stretch our arms. Place your left arm across your chest and hook it with your right hand. Hold for 10 seconds. Then switch, right arm across your chest and hook it with your left hand. Hold for 10 seconds. • Then we will finish with hands clasped behind the back. Hold for 10 seconds. o This helps open the chest and improve breathing. • Doing this series of stretches will take about 2 minutes to complete. Try to do them at least twice daily and especially right before you exercise. Visit www.nemours.org to learn more.

Pediatric Sickle Cell Disease Care at Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
 
03:31
Although pediatric sickle cell disease can occur in any child, about one in 400 African-American children and one in 1,000 Hispanic children are born with the disease each year in the United States. Our renowned hematologists, oncologists and researchers are responsible for making the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders one of the very best in the country. We work together to treat kids affected by sickle cell anemia and sickle cell disease (a group of inherited blood disorders that affect the red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body). Types of sickle cell disease in children are based on specific inherited genetic defects. We treat all types of childhood sickle cell disease, including: sickle cell trait (marked by inheriting one hemoglobin S gene and one normal hemoglobin A gene which can be passed on; usually causes no symptoms) sickle cell anemia (also called “homozygous sickle cell disease,” the most common and severe form caused by inheriting two hemoglobin S genes from both parents) sickle cell hemoglobin C (a milder form marked by inheriting one hemoglobin S gene and one hemoglobin C gene, which is also defective) sickle cell beta thalassemia (two types — sickle beta zero and sickle beta plus — range from mild to severe, caused by inheriting one hemoglobin S gene and one beta thalassemia gene) If we discover any type of sickle cell disease (like sickle cell anemia), our multidisciplinary (collaborative) team plans the most effective treatment personalized to your child’s needs. In addition to an experienced, compassionate nurse coordinator (who provides your child and family support, education and care coordination), Nemours’ pediatric blood disorder teams include: hematologists (blood disorder specialists) pulmonologists (lung specialists) orthopedists (bone specialists) neurologists (specialists in brain and spinal cord disorders) urologists (specialists in urinary and reproductive organs) pathologists (diagnose diseases by examining body tissues, fluids and organs) radiologists (diagnose diseases using medical imaging) geneticists (perform genetic counseling and testing) behavioral health specialists (psychologists and psychiatrists) pain management specialists (anesthesiologists trained in pain management) registered dietitians (nutrition specialists) hematology nurses (registered nurses specializing in childhood blood disorders) Your care team is here to provide your family with ongoing support and follow-up. We always include you in the entire process, because we truly believe in the healing power of families and that you know your child best. To learn more, visit Nemours.org/SickleCell

Taking Care of Your Child's Gastrostomy Tube (G-Tube)
 
13:55
Taking Care of Your Child's Gastrostomy Tube (G-Tube). Tara Spruill, RN, BSN - Nemours Children's Clinic, Jacksonville discusses gastrostomy tube or g-tube education. A g-tube is a silicone tube that's placed in your child's abdomen through a hole in the stomach made by the doctor. Your child probably has a g-tube because they are unable to eat enough food by mouth to supply a good amount of calories for their body to grow at a normal rate. There are many different types of g-tubes. Our clinic uses buttons. A button is a small tube that lies close to your child's skin on the outside, and has a removable extension tube that is used form feeding, administering medications and venting or burping your child. One of the most common questions that parents have about g-tubes is how to take care of the skin around the g-tube. It's important to keep the skin clean and dry and to look for signs of redness and irritation after each feeding. Your routine should be simple, and the less products you use the better. Take 3 cotton swabs with plain soap and water. Dip the first cotton swab in the soap and water. Start underneath the g-tube all the way around, and work your way out. Dip the second swab in plain water and with the same motion, start underneath the g-tube all the way around and work your way out. The third swab is a dry one. Using the same motion, start underneath the g-tube and work your way out. It's important to turn the g-tube half a turn after each feeding to prevent it from indenting into the skin, and causing redness and irritation. As your child grows, and their weight fluctuates their g-tube may need to be longer. If your child's tube is too snug or too loose give the surgery center a call, and schedule a g-tube change. It's an exciting time when your child's doctor tells you that they no longer need their g-tube because they are able to take enough food by mouth. After the tube is removed the hole should close on its own. We recommend that you use a barrier cream and a bandage for the first 48 hours. If you notice that after 4-6 weeks that the hole has not closed, it may need to be done surgically.

After Gavin's passing, Kate and Ed requested a meeting to express their thanks to ophthalmologist Dr. Sharon Lehman, ENT surgeon Dr. Rob O'Reilly, child life therapist Jen Jankowski, and many others who had cared for Gavin all his life. It is hard to imagine a more touching and heartfelt testament to the duPont Hospital's focus on family centered-care.

How to do Rescue Breaths for Vocal Cord Attacks - Nemours Children's Health System
 
01:35
Nemours Speech Pathologists Show How to Do Rescue Breaths for Vocal Cord Attacks Teaching the “Rescue Breath” • When you are experiencing a vocal fold attack, the vocal folds squeeze together, much like a cramp or a “charley horse.” This makes it difficult to breathe because the airway is being slightly closed off. • When you take a rescue breath, try to focus on the exhale. You may feel like you need to take a deep breath in, but try not to because that can cause stridor and increased tightness. Concentrate on the exhale. • Let’s begin with a long exhale through pursed lips or “kissy face” lips. o Pursed lips are important because they help shape the vocal folds into a relaxed or open position. Then we will take two short sniffs in through the nose. • During a vocal fold attach, you should repeat this type of breathing several times until your breathing improves. • Some kids find it helpful to count the breaths. o Slowly breathe out for a count of 4 and then breathe in through the nose for a count of 2. • You can use this breathing whenever you need it – like when climbing steps, running sprints, or even when completing a 5k!

Rare Conjoined Twins Successfully Separated by Nemours Surgeons at Wolfson Children's Hospital
 
05:47
Visit www.nemours.org to learn more. Jacksonville, Florida, May 11, 2015 – Carter and Conner, conjoined twin boys born Dec. 12, 2014, in Jacksonville, Fla., underwent a successful separation surgery on May 7, 2015. The 12-hour surgery began at 7:11 am, led by a team of highly skilled pediatric specialists that included Daniel Robie, MD, chief of pediatric general surgery, and Nicholas Poulos, MD, pediatric general surgeon, for Nemours Children’s Specialty Care and Wolfson Children’s Hospital. The boys were separated at 3:34 pm. Conner’s surgery was finished at 6:29 pm and he was transferred from OR 8 to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Wolfson Children’s Hospital at 6:52 pm. Carter’s surgery ended at 6:47 pm and he was transferred to the PICU at 7:14 pm to join his brother. The separation involved a 17-member surgical care team (blue for Carter, green for Conner and white for surgical support). From the day after their birth to the morning of their final separation surgery, Carter and Conner received care in Wolfson Children’s Hospital’s Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) under the direction of Josef Cortez, MD, and Ma Ingyinn, MD, neonatologists with the University of Florida (UF) College of Medicine – Jacksonville. During their stay to now, the boys have been cared for by nearly 200 health care professionals that include neonatal and pediatric critical care nurses, pediatric respiratory therapists, rehabilitation therapists, Child Life specialists, pediatric chaplains and other health care disciplines. Before Separation Surgery On Dec. 13, 2014, the twins underwent emergency surgery to repair a potentially life-threatening condition called a ruptured omphalocele, in which their shared small intestine protruded through a weak area of the abdominal wall. Dr. Robie and Dr. Poulos positioned the babies’ shared small intestine back inside their abdominal wall and placed a temporary mesh patch over it to keep the bowel inside. On Jan. 2, 2015, the boys underwent an additional surgery to remove the temporary mesh. Dr. Robie and Dr. Poulos then partially separated the shared small intestine to enable the babies to feed orally. During the procedure, the pediatric surgeons discovered that the boys had two bile ducts that also were fused. Conner and Carter’s livers and bile ducts were left intact for the May 7, 2015, separation surgery. Hope for the Future “We are honored and thank the Mirabal and Brantley family for placing their trust in us to care for their beautiful baby boys,” said Dr. Robie. “During this critical period on the road to recovery that is ahead of Carter and Conner, they have the wonderful support of their family and a skilled care team who are committed to their recovery, development and best possible health.” Carter and Conner’s mother, Michelle, said, “We are so grateful to everyone who has taken care of our babies. We had so much confidence in them and they have been so good to us and to our family. We can’t wait to take Carter and Conner home!” ### About Wolfson Children’s Hospital of Jacksonville Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, is a part of Baptist Health, Northeast Florida’s most comprehensive health system serving every stage of life.

NEMOURS CHILDREN’S HEALTH SYSTEM | Learn more about ACL reconstruction surgery in kids from the director of the Nemours Center for Sports Medicine in Delaware. Kids with torn anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) can and do get back to playing sports after successful ACL surgery. In this video, Dr. Al Atanda, director of the Nemours Center for Sports Medicine at Nemours/Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals for pediatric orthopedic care (U.S. News and World Report), tells kids and families what to expect during and after ACL surgery. Dr. Atanda explains ACL replacement and the pros and cons of using donor graft and host graft (the child’s own) tissue for the outpatient procedure. He talks about the equipment you’ll go home with after surgery, when physical therapy begins, and what happens before an injured athlete is cleared to return to play. The good news is that young, healthy kids don’t have to be sidelined by an ACL injury. With the right care and hard work, most kids are back at it around nine months after ACL surgery.

Nemours Children's Hospital (NCH) offers an integrated pediatric pain management program dedicated to treating acute (temporary) and chronic (ongoing) pain in children and teens. The program — led by one of the world's top pain specialists who is board certified in pediatric anesthesiology and pain management — is one of only a handful in the United States that also provides healing for the entire family. At NCH, we focus on overall wellness with therapies that meet your child's physical, mental, and emotional needs in both an outpatient clinic and inpatient hospital setting. Our inpatient day stay program (a hospital stay that may last several hours over several days, but not overnight) provides more intensive care for children who don't respond to traditional outpatient treatment. And because your child's pain can't wait, we're committed to seeing you as quickly as possible. Some of the pain symptoms and conditions we treat in children and teens include: acute pain (pain that's temporary or short-term from, say, surgery or an injury) chronic pain (pain that lasts more than six months) abdominal pain arthritis/joint inflammation back and leg pain cancer pain fibromyalgia (widespread muscle pain) headaches neck, shoulder and arm pain nerve injuries neuropathic pain (complex regional pain syndrome -- also called CRPS or RSD) pain related to mental health disorders (like anxiety or depression) pain related to sports injuries

Lancet Study on Spinal Muscular Atrophy - Nemours Children's Hospital
 
01:36
Infants as young as five weeks old with the most severe form of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) – a leading genetic cause of infant mortality – can be treated safely with nusinersen. This investigational treatment slowed progression of the disease, improved survival, and in some cases demonstrated remarkable improvement in muscle function, according to research published online today by The Lancet. “With nusinersen, these infants are not only living longer, but they're living better,” said Richard S. Finkel, MD, lead author of the study and chief of neurology at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Fla. “SMA is no longer a death sentence for infants. This treatment is by no means a cure, but it is more than we’ve ever been able to offer these families before.” The multi-site, phase two, open-label trial of patients with infant-onset SMA targeted the SMN2 gene with a tiny fragment of DNA called an anti-sense oligonucleotide (ASO), injected directly into the spinal fluid of 20 participating infants. This ASO gets absorbed into nerve cells of the spinal cord and brain and promotes increased production of a critical protein that is deficient in babies with SMA. Not only was the series of nusinersen treatments delivered safely to these fragile babies, but in the majority of patients it was found to halt progression of the disease and in many cases improve motor function, sometimes enabling children to gain skills not seen in SMA Type 1 – sitting, rolling over, and standing – as well as improving survival without dependence upon the continuous use of a ventilator. An estimated one in 40 adults is a carrier of SMA, and one of every 11,000 babies are born with this genetic disease. SMA is typed by severity and age of onset. Babies born with SMA Type 1, the most severe form, are not expected to live until their second birthday without feeding and breathing support. SMA occurs from a defect in the gene responsible for producing Survival Motor Neuron (SMN), a protein critical for normal cell function. Nusinersen is designed to increase the production of this protein by modifying a closely ¬related gene to compensate for the genetic defect. Asher Camp of Lakeland, Fla., now age 3, was diagnosed with SMA Type 1 when he was six months old and began treatment a month later at Nemours Children’s Hospital through this clinical trial. He and his family have seen remarkable development that they never thought would be possible when they received his diagnosis in 2013. "This is a new day, a new era when rare diseases like SMA might just very well be cured in our lifetime. Miracles are happening. Asher’s life is a miracle. Thanks to unbelievable funding for research, awareness, and patient advocacy, we can imagine a day when parents are no longer sent home on diagnosis day with a death sentence but rather sent home with hope for the future,” said Asher’s mother, Amanda Camp. “What if diagnosis day is a day when parents can still imagine their children crawling, walking, running and playing? Imagine the day Asher leaves his wheelchair behind. Imagine." The study builds on the body of research supporting the effective use of nusinersen, one of the first therapies for SMA, developed by Ionis Pharmaceutical in partnership with Biogen. Biogen has submitted a nusinersen for approval in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration and in Europe by the European Medicines Agency. Both the Priority Review and Accelerated Assessment designations can reduce the standard review time. Biogen is also preparing for the potential launch of nusinersen, to be sold as Spinraza, possibly as early as the end of 2016 or the first quarter of 2017. Dr. Finkel and his team are continuing to build on the safety profile of nusinersen through several ongoing clinical trials at Nemours Children’s Hospital. NURTURE is an open-label, ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial in pre-symptomatic infants with SMA who are up to six weeks of age at time of first dose to determine whether treatment before symptoms begin would prevent or delay the onset of SMA symptoms. Additionally, Nemours Children’s Hospital is now participating in the Biogen-sponsored expanded access program, to provide nusinersen treatment for patients with SMA Type 1 until the drug is approved by regulatory authorities and is commercially available.

Turning on Nick's Cochlear Implant: Nemours Children's Clinic Jacksonville

The Bender family traveled from Tallahassee to the Nemours Children's Clinic, Jacksonville so that their son Nick, who is profoundly deaf in his right ear, could have cochlear implant surgery. A few weeks after the procedure, they came back again for activation. Nick's mom, Michelle says, "Today is the day we've been waiting for. He had his cochlear implant turned on and it's activated and he's hearing -- and it's just very exciting." She goes on to point out, "It's interesting.The audiologist goes through several sounds and pitches to make sure he's hearing at the different levels he needs to, and to make sure all the electrodes in the implant are working." Michelle also says, "We've become part of a team. They treat us like family. We feel so connected. He loves to come here. To him it's not a doctor's appointment, itt's time to play. There are so many fun games, you don't even know you're working toward a goal. It's such comprehensive care. He's able to see his audiologist, his ENT specialist and speech therapist in one place. They're all friendly and warm and all work together, side by side. Because he's able to have the cochlear implant procedure, we know that he can do anything. He'll be able to hear, to speak more clearly and communicate with others and that's we hoped for."

Bringing the Izzi FamilyTogether: Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children
 
02:19
The Izzi family of Downingtown Pa., more than doubled in size on Oct. 1, 2013 when triplets Maya, Eva and Jenna were born, several weeks early, at Lankenau Hospital, to first-time parents Jennifer and Michael. All three babies were healthy, weighing over 3 lbs at birth. They just needed some time to grow in the Lankenau NICU. However, about a week later, Maya was transferred to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children when she developed necrotizing enterocolitis, a serious condition affecting preemies. Maya underwent successful intestinal surgery and would require several weeks' recovery time in the NICU at duPont Hospital for Children. As Jennifer and Michael were running back and forth between the Lankenau and duPont Hospital for Children, their doctors, nurses and social workers recognized the situation as exhausting for them. The staff interceded with the couple's insurance company and were able to arrange transfer of the other two babies to the NICU at duPont Hospital for Children so everyone could be together. To support comfort and bonding -- multiples are sometimes placed together under medical supervision.To protect the safety of children, Nemours does not practice co-bedding and each infant sleeps in his or her own bed.

History of Nemours
 
02:43
Nemours President and CEO, Dr. David Bailey, talks about the history of Nemours beginning with a transformational gift from philanthropist, Alfred I. duPont. Back in 1940, when the Alfred I. duPont Institute was an orthopedic hospital, children were patients in the hospital for days, weeks, or even months at a time. We had to attend not only to their medical needs, but to their educational needs and their needs to be children. We had to create an environment where children could be children. That became woven into our DNA, that idea of getting it right for the family and creating an environment where family feels safe, secure and has peace of mind. Today, Nemours supports a number of renowned children's health facilities, including the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware; Nemours Children's Clinic with specialty practice locations in the Delaware Valley and North and Central Florida; and primary care offices in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Nemours is currently developing a new children's health campus in Orlando, Florida, including the Nemours Children's Hospital. To learn more, please visit Nemours.org
