Penicillin allergy, the most commonly reported allergy in a pediatric patient, is associated with increases in cost of care, hospitalization and morbidity, as well as contributing to antibiotic resistance. However, 95% of patients labeled with a penicillin allergy do not have a true allergy. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention has identified improper use of antibiotics to be an important factor that must be addressed for both patient safety and public health. This presentation will identify high-risk symptoms of allergy, differentiate between adverse reactions, IgE-mediated allergic reaction and delayed T-cell reactions, as well as discuss appropriate testing for penicillin allergy. Additionally, the presenter will address alternative antibiotics that can be used until a formal allergy evaluation can be completed.

Urine drug screening (UDS) is a laboratory test frequently used to screen for drugs of abuse, monitor for medication compliance, evaluate for suspected drug intoxication or overdose, and in office-based pain contracts (Kale, 2019; Standridge, Adams, & Zotos, 2010). In children and adolescents,UDS may be used to prevent substance use, evaluate for suspected drug use or intoxication, or as part of substance abuse treatment (Levy & Siqueira, 2014). When using UDS as a tool to make clinical decisions about high-risk medications, it is important to understand the differences between UDS testing modalities, common causes of falsepositive or false-negative results, and the detection window of specific medications. There are two commonly used types of UDS available: immunoassay and gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC-MS; Kale, 2019).

Sixty percent of total body magnesium is stored in bone, 20% is located in skeletal muscle and the remaining 20% is distributed in various organ tissues, including the kidney, liver, and heart (Grober, Schmidt, & Kisters, 2015). Approximately 0.3% of magnesium is found in the serum (Grober et al., 2015). Therefore, determination of the serum magnesium concentration remains the best readily available test for magnesium deficiency, although it provides only an estimate of total body magnesium stores.This review article provides an overview of key disease states in pediatric patients where magnesium is part of the treatment. The treatment of hypomagnesemia and hypermagnesemia will be described, with review of dosing and timing of magnesium administration. J Pediatr Health Care. (2021) 35, 564-571.
