Medline Filters for Child Health

There is no reliable filter for searching for information about child health. This is what is recommended by expert searchers:

As well as using this sensitive filter below (more sensitive than the PubMed ‘child age limit’)

children[Text Word] OR “adolescence”[MeSH Terms] OR teenager[Text Word] OR teenagers[All Fields] OR baby[Text Word] OR babies[All Fields] OR “adolescence”[MeSH Terms] OR adolescent[Text Word] OR adolescents[Text Word] OR adolescence[Text Word] OR toddler[All Fields] OR toddlers[All Fields] OR youngster[All Fields] OR youngsters[All Fields] OR “young people”[All Fields] OR youngster[All Fields] OR youngsters[All Fields] OR offspring[All Fields] OR offsprings[All Fields] OR youth[Text Word] OR youths[Text Word] OR juvenile[All Fields] OR juveniles[All Fields] OR newborn[Text Word] OR newborns[Text Word] OR “infant, newborn”[MeSH “infant”[MeSH Terms] OR infant[Text Word] OR infants[Text Word] OR infantile[All Fields] OR “child”[MeSH Terms] OR child[Text Word] OR Terms] OR neonate[Text Word] OR “infant, newborn”[MeSH Terms] OR neonates[Text Word] OR pediatrics[All Fields] OR paediatric[All Fields] OR kid[Text Word] OR kids[All Fields] “pediatrics”[MeSH Terms] OR paediatrics[All Fields] OR pediatrics[All Fields]

try adding all typical child conditions (e.g. croup, failure to thrive) to the search filter or ‘or’ it with a paediatric journal subset.
