Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Urine specimen collection in suspected UTI
  • Vit K deficiency in newborn
  • Short stature

In the Video station we had clip of a 6 month old with transverse abdominal scar and pale stools. Dr I took the hot seat and made a good attempt at history points to ask, examination and differential. We explored the history further.

Learning points are:

  • Common conditions first
  • Structured questioning
  • Specific questions – do not ask general broad based questions
  • Straight forward – go for the obvious
  • Do not waste opportunity on asking questions about signs already obvious
  • Use appropriate terms – neonate means upto 4 weeks
  • Surgery in at 6 weeks will be answered ‘not in neonatal period’.

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