IPSA Congress 2014 - Porto Alegre - Brazil - Sunday, September 29, 2013

It is my pleasure to present the
III Congress of the International Pediatric Sleep Association (IPSA) - Porto Alegre (Brazil) 3-5 December 2014.

The importance of sleep for health, learning and psychomotor development in infancy, childhood and adolescence has been emphasized in the pediatric research in the last two decades and it has become more and more evident that ensuring a good sleep during development is of key importance for a later healthy life.
The IPSA Congress is an influential forum for sleep practitioners from around the world to network and exchange views, whilst learning from world-class researchers about the latest scientific and clinical developments in the field.
The success of the last two Congresses in Rome 2010 and Manchester 2012 has highlighted the magnitude of Pediatric Sleep Medicine in the scientific community and we hope that the 2014 Congress will provide a perfect balance between didactic and practical needs, in order to provide the technical knowhow and up-to-date knowledge that will enable participants to improve their practice.
As traditional for IPSA, the most renowned International opinion leaders in the field of Pediatric Sleep Medicine speakers will join the Congress and will highlight the recent significant advances in both basic science and clinical sleep medicine during development.
I hope that the world paediatric sleep community will gather together in the lively city of Porto Alegre to celebrate the best clinical practice and the latest advances in Pediatric Sleep Medicine.

Oliviero Bruni
President of the International Pediatric Sleep Association

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: The origin of a differentiated approach to neuropsychopharmacotherapy in children and adolescents can be traced back to the 1940s and 50s. Certain clinical disorders in the range of psychiatry and neurology were treated with a multiplicity of substances.
METHOD: We conducted an exclusive screening of 700 medical records of patients under 18 years of age from a psychiatric university hospital in Jena (from 1942–1945) and 89 files of children who attended Trüper’s approved school in Jena between 1946 and 1954.
RESULTS: Differentiated therapies were administered for ailments such as acute anxiety states, erethism, hyperkinetic syndrome, enuresis, migraine, sleep disturbance, epilepsy, Sydenham’s chorea, spasticity, neuralgia, neuritis, dizziness, pain syndrome, tetany, and syphilis.
CONCLUSIONS: Interventions for mental disorders were relatively unspecific before the development of neuroleptic and antidepressant agents. During this time, multitudes of treatments were implemented for neurovegetative disorders, psychoneuroses, and different kinds of psychopathies. Barbiturates were administered in both pure and mixed forms. Additionally, since mental disorders were frequently caused by physical disorders, they could be eliminated or improved by the use of chemotherapeutics. Other somatic therapies like convulsive shock treatment with camphor and cardiazol, malaria treatments, hypoglycemic shock therapy, and electroconvulsive treatment have been applied in patients with schizophrenia.
