Patients receiving landiolol were more likely to achieve target heart rates of 60-94 following sepsis-related tachyarrhythmia and had significantly reduced incidence of new onset arrhythmia Evidence Rating: 1...
1. Acetaminophen burden, as measured by cord plasma samples, was associated with increased, dose-dependent risk of childhood Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Fetal acetaminophen exposure has been found to increase risk of neurodevelopmental disorders such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

1. After adjusting for potential confounders, long-term maternal use of acetaminophen during pregnancy demonstrated an association with ADHD in offspring, though the association was offset when accounting for multiple confounding factors. 2. Long term paternal use of acetaminophen 6 months prior to conception was associated with increased rates of ADHD...
1. African American youth were less likely to receive adequate follow-up throughout attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment. 2. Both African American and Hispanic youth were more likely to receive combined treatment, more likely to discontinue medication, and more likely to disengage from treatment when compared to white youth. Evidence Rating Level: 2...
