Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- Floppy larynx
- Pulled elbow
- Hearing inattention in 6 year old
The Clinical station was CVS. Presentation was of a 14 year old universal cues of central thoracotomy, multiple peripheral emboli, ejection systolic murmur. Dr S took the hotseat and made a very good attempt at describing the clinical examination. There were some obvious omissions and learning points. Dr W and Dr P gave their summary and Dr S presented very important tips to follow in the exam.
- Looking for ‘Safe’ registrars who can diagnose and categorize urgency of children
- Exam is to check you have clear understanding of basic knowledge.
- 8 out of 10 diagnosis can be deducted from universal cues.
- 4 mins- note name / task / cues when watching
Other Learning points are:
- Tiem management – is the most IMPORTANT
- Universal Cues are IMPORTANT – need to be picked during EXAMINATION
- Work on examiner has not seen universal cues – describe in your technique
- Practice to finish exam in 5 minutes
- Summarize in 3-4 sentences – max.
- Do NOT narrate back what examiner has just told you.
- In With children scenario: your diagnosis supported by your findings
