Thank you for participating in the session today.

We discussed a CVS scenario: 18 month old seen for parental concern. Universal Cues were: Cyanosis, clubbing, median sternotomy, stoma bag and a murmur clip. Dependent cues had to be ascertained. Dr M & Dr S took the hot seat and covered most of the clinical signs. Discussion was fair.

Random Paediatric Review:

  • Mendellian inheritance & Cystic fibrosis
  • Coeliac disease
  • Arrhythmia
  • Hepatitis

Learning points:

  • Read common topics
  • Common topis are also difficult to explain – contrary to what we think
  • Verbalise and be systematic
  • Speak slowly and remain calm
  • Brief summary with +ve & -ve points – Do Not repeat the whole examination

Do read up the topics from Random Paediatirc Review so as to know the details and also make Neuronal Links for rapid recall – a necessary skill for success in the exam.

Add your comments or points I may have missed.
