  • "While watching a training video about accessing a central venous line on OPENPediatrics our physicians and nurses at a pediatric hospital in Turkey discussed our central-line access practice. Prior to watching the video, all of the clinicians were allowed to access the central lines and we had a high rate of central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI). After watching this video on OPENPediatrics, however, we decided to test a new strategy and allow only the nursing staff to access central lines in patients. After many months using this strategy learned from an OPENPediatrics video, the rate of central line associated bloodstream infections declined dramatically.Eventually, however, the physicians became frustrated that their access to central lines was restricted and decided to return to our old system. When we did, the central line infections went back up to our previously high rate. So now, we are going back to the protocol for accessing a central venous line that we learned on OPENPediatrics!"

  • "One of our pediatric residents was on call one night recently in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and was called for an emergency in the delivery room. A baby was born with a life-threatening lung problem and was not breathing. He intubated and started ventilating the baby with oxygen through the breathing device, but the baby's chest did not rise and there was no response, the baby was still deteriorating. Then he said he suddenly remembered a graphic animation from an OPENPediatrics presentation that demonstrated how the breathing device works, and realized one of the valves in the breathing device was not functioning, he quickly replaced it in the proper position and the baby immediately began to improve. So [OPENPediatrics'] animation really helped save that baby's life."
