Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:

  • 18 month old with difficulty in going to sleep
  • DDH / CDH
  • Limp in 6 year old

The Communication scenario was of an 11 month old with suspected meningitis. Mother is not giving permission for a Lumbar puncture. Dr A & Dr D were in the hotseat while Dr A & Dr J were very competent role players.

The task was difficult and the learning points are:

  • To be accurate with anatomical description
  • Meningitis is not infection of the brain.
  • Treatment of meningitis is Antibiotics and NOT Lumber Puncture.
  • LP is important to confirm diagnosis and decide on best treatment option
  • Viral meningitis will not need antibiotics.
  • Address RP’s CONCERNS or they will NOT move forward
  • If you are going round in loops – STEP out.
  • Seniors will come as soon as they have finished a ‘clinic’ or looking after another child
