Thank you for participating in the session today.

Scenario was of discussion with FY1 results of a 6 weeks old baby admitted with diagnosis of Pyloric stenosis with dehydration, metabolic alkalosis,  Hypochloremia and hypernatremia.Dr S and Dr P were excellent role players and Dr A, Dr P, Dr N and Dr S took the hotseat.It was well attempted.

Learning points:

  • Clarify the agenda if in doubt. Check with role player
  • If you spend all your time on the wrong track – there are NO marks
  • Be careful & aware and specific about terminology
  • Metabolic alkalosis is not caused by blood.
  • Communication is a DIALOGUE not a MONOLOGUE
  • Do not give a ‘lecture’ – remember 30 seconds Rule
  • Speak slowly.

Add your comments or anything I may have missed.
