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

  • 29 weeker twins. Problems of prematurity
  • Sudden desaturation of 1 day old preterm on ventilator: DOPE
  • Hypothyroid – TSH 400mu/L on 6th day blood test

In the Clinical station we discussed a 4 year old presenting with difficulty in walking and frequent falls. Universal cues were of calf hypertrophy and Gower’s sign. Dr I & Dr D were in the hot seat. Both made very good attempts.
Learning points are:

  • Structured examination
  • Follow a logical order
  • Power check in Group of muscle acting on a joint
  • Summary – your DD and supporting clinical findings
  • Time management is essential and practice completing exam in 5 minutes
  • General examination is part of EVERY clinical systemic exam.
