Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- Failure To Thrive
- NAI and Place of Safety / order
- Chickenpox exposure to a child with Leukaemia
The Video station scenario was of a 14 year old admitted for ‘regular’ admission for assessment & treatment. Grade four clubbing of fingers & toes + O2 supplement. Dr P took the hotseat. Clinical signs were picked up. Discussion with questions and examination required help. It was a useful presentation exercise.
- Develop a differential diagnosis. DO NOT work with ONE diagnosis only.
- You may reach your One diagnosis by history question & examination.
- History & examination has to be Specific – almost a closed question.
- Summary – give your impression / Differential and then support by finding
- Do NOT narrate you finding and not mentioning your ‘diagnosis or DD’.
- Specific common investigations first.
- Involve your consultant before speaking with any other team
