The article presents various research related to treatments of several children's diseases. Three trials have proven that providing inhaled steroid to wheezy infants and preschool children does not affect the course of wheezing or progression to asthma. For 8 years, 9 children with acute fulminant myocarditis were treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation of which 6 of them survived. In Cornwall, 62 children were presented to the emergency department due to acute alcohol intoxication.
