Notable research includes:

  • One of the largest studies of children with COVID-19 shows that teenagers and African Americans are at higher risk for developing severe disease and that multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) occurred more frequently in children 12 and younger, African Americans, and those who did not have medical conditions such as asthma and diabetes.

  • A study of 837 children hospitalized for COVID-19 finds that Asians were more likely to end up in the ICU and that racial and ethnic disparities in outcomes are not associated with preexisting conditions.

  • Results from the Discovery COVID-19 VIRUS Registry show that early calculation of hyperinflammation markers in children with COVID-19 helps predict the severity of their illness.

  • The biggest advance in CPR since its invention 60 years ago, a new approach involving a few simple FDA-approved devices and head-up/torso-up positioning (HTup-CPR) could radically improve outcomes in patients with cardiac arrest.
