Under COVID_19, most evidence and data are on adults, but more and more paediatric cases with some mortality are ongoing.
Let's gather all the paediatric related COVID-19 research here for referencing.

The aim of this study is to search for any causes of fetal stress.
We're looking for the relationship between frequency of the contractions and the duration of the fetus in the pelvis (Hodge 3).
I need to calculate the probability for delivery packets at the sink node. Each link has the probability for failure (p) so the probability for successful is (1-p). there are relay nodes between the sensor nodes and sink node, some relay nodes are forward the packets and another they do network coding.
if the relay just forwards the correctly received , How can calculate the probability of successful reception at the destination?
When relay nodes are applied network coding on the packets. How can compute the probability of successful delivery?
Could you explain by example?please
For a dilatation more than 2cm is a high risk for rupture of membrane during the cerclage. From 24 weeks of gestation the fetus is viable (OMS definition).
some gynecologist advise the pregnant with twin to take dexamethasone 12 mg injection several time ( 2 or 4 times) in the third trimester of pregnancy, what are the expected benefits and what are the risks for the pregnant and fetus.
As almost all samples are hyperosmolar, what kind of bias should I search?
I have already excluded a problem of temperature storage (at -20°C). It's an expected healthy population.
I deliver placentas in squatting at 5 minutes postpartum, so when the delivery is delayed, it is noteworthy. I delivered a woman who got pregnant with IUD in place. The placenta did not separate for 50 minutes, even pushing in squatting. So, while in squatting i pulled quite hard and even on the cord and finally it started coming down and delivered. The IUD was not in the placenta but in the sac and I think it was stuck into the uterus and that is what made it hard to deliver. Anyone else have this experience?
Two different obstetrical cases were observed in female camels. In both cases, severing straining of mothers resulted in prolapse of the (uterus???) or (vagina??). Meanwhile with continuous straining, this prolapsed part was teared with appearance of the fetal parts. In the second case, the intestines were dislocated after fetal removal.
The questions are:
1. Is this prolapsed/teared part vagina or uterus? I suggest it is uterus, it seem very similar to the endometrium.
2. What is the pathogensis? How did this part come to outside during parturition? Is this the non-pregnant horn?
We would like to understand both cases.
Some hospitals are attempting the "Golden Hour" after the mom gets out of the Operating Room from a Cesarean delivery. It seems that some hospitals have taken the extra step of keeping the baby with the mom from the time of the incision. How soon does the mom get the baby after a Cesarean in you institution? How long are you delaying the bath? How are you handling the delay of the bath?
Women with spinal cord injuries (SCI) represent a rising population. Unfortunately, there is limited information about labor care and delivery for women with SCI.
Should I measure a specific kind of infection instead? Or are there ways in measuring infections in general?
