Thank you for your participation and making the session so informative.


We started with RRR:

  • Epiglottitis – differential and management – minimal disturbance and seek airway support
  • Abdominal Pain 5 yr old
  • Transient Tachypnoea of Newborn. – TTN

We then practice Communication of Treacher Collins Syndrome – Dr A was the role player and I demonstrated how I would attempt the scenario.


The communication scenario of the day was –¬† A 2 day old baby with rhesus incompatibility under phototherapy. Task was to Getting permission for Exchange Transfusion from parent. Dr F took the hotseat and Dr A was the role player. Scenario was attempted well. Appropriate comments from Examiners.
Learning points:

  • Do not to give too much information – keep it basic to start
  • Do NOT ignore questions / concerns mentioned by role player
  • If you do not have an answer – ‘Will check and come back’.
  • NEVER GIVE A WRONG ANSWER – knowingly – admit you do not know
  • In Critical illness – Reassure
  • “With treatment we expect the child to make full recovery’ – will need monitoring
  • Open with checking what role player knows or has been told.
