Home oxygen has been safely incorporated into emergency department management of bronchiolitis in certain populations. After discharge, a small proportion of patients (2.7%–6%) require subsequent admission. For patients managed successfully as outpatients, pediatricians report variable practice styles and comfort levels.
Our results define the clinical course and outpatient burden associated with discharge on home oxygen. By using an integrated health care system, we captured slightly higher rates (9.4%) of subsequent admission and found fever to be associated with this outcome.
Many studies have demonstrated that the built environment is related to both collision risk and walking to school. However, little research examines the influence of the built environment on the relationship between walking to school and pedestrian collision risk.
Increased walking was not associated with increased pedestrian collision once the effects of the built environment and socioeconomic status were modeled. Safety was related primarily to the built environment and specifically...
