Thank you for participating in the session today.

The Rapid Random Review were:

  • Down’s syndrome – feature & genetics – inheritance
  • Arrhythmia in children – SVT
  • Bruising in 5 years old – ITP? management

The Video scenario was of a 14 years old seen in A&E following a seizure recorded by teacher. Evidence of asymmetrical limbs movement. Dr S & Dr I were in the hotseat.
Learning points:

  • Note details in introduction – each word has been looked at carefully
  • Observe the Video very carefully
  • Structured approach
  • Tonic clonic seizures are symmetrical
  • ITP – refresh management guidelines – do not say ‘ No Treatment’.
  • Be confident of your observation
  • In Communication – Do NOT keep on apologizing
  • Before ‘intervention’ mention why i.e. referral for counselling.

Please visit to add your comments or any points I may have missed.
