Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of Newborn (h/o Birth Asphyxia)
- Shock – what is and stages
The Video station was on a young man admitted for ongoing treatment. There were two iv access plus few other signs. Dr M took the hotseat and managed the clues well and good discussion. There is always room for improvement till we are in the actual exam.
When you see a ‘child with a particular signs’ close your eyes for a moment and think of the last time you admitted or managed a similar patient. This will help you decide what next.
The Learning points are:
- Watch the video carefully and take note of initial information provided.
- How to approach a child with chronic illness.
- ‘What medications is the child on? or is taking is a softer statement.
- Learnt how to approach the Video station.
- Got to know various access methods – all depend on length of time access required
- Peripheral iv – Peripheral long line – Central line – Hickmann line – Porta Cath
- Renal catheters – pigtail per cuteneous
- Cyanosis in newborn
- Malignancy is a better opening diagnosis than ALL.
- Features of ‘Chemotherapy’ are evident in treatment of all malignancies
- Remember – a Lot of diagnosis are possible – you HAVE to think of 2-3 common ones.
