Infant Reflux Drugs

Filed under: All Infographics, Cultural Infographics, Educational, Health Infographics, People Infographics | Comments Off

The number of babies prescribed acid suppression drugs such as H2 blockers and PPIs grew 8-fold during 2002 to 2009, but fewer than 10% received any diagnostic testing for GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). Some pediatricians are growing concerned that the “epidemic” of infant GERDcases is actually due to over-diagnosis, especially since clinical trials show acid blockers work no better than a placebo and can actually lead to short term and long term side effects. The FDA has not approved PPIs for treatment of GERD in children younger than one year.

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B

I like the images of the real babies to help attract readers to the infographic. The colors are all typical colors that people associate with babies. I like that the information is displayed creatively with nice graphs and images.

Infographic Information:B

The information is helpful and brings awareness to a subject that many parents may not have an understanding of. I think the statistics helps support the idea of this infographic.
