Thank you for participating in the session today. We had our Rapid Random Review which were:

  • Jittery baby
  • Toxic radiation to CNS in ALL relapse treatment – Learning disability
  • Cerebral dysfunction in Newborn – signs

This was followed by a PowerPoint presentation by AG on the radio station and how to attempt the presenting scenario.Video clip was of a two day old baby who was showing evidence of seizure activity. Hotseat was taken by Dr I & Dr K. Examiners were Dr A & Dr A – Dr D & Dr S

Learning points:

  • You are allowed to use a paper to make notes
  • Think of differential diagnosis (DD) in 4 minutes with initial information
  • Observe the Video carefully and note the signs
  • Work out questions to ask in history on your DD
  • Relevant examination on your DD
  • If examiner suggests a different Diagnosis – Do Not argue!
  • Support your diagnosis
  • Aetiology in BROAD categories first
  • Management in Broad principles first.
  • If an ‘Emergency’ – deal with that first e.g. seizures
