Dear All

Thank you for participating in the session today.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Biliary atresia
  • Choanal atresia
  • Enuresis in 5 year old

We discussed Video station today. AG gave a PowerPoint presentation on the details of the Video station with Dos & Don’ts. Video clip showed a 6 month old with distended abdomen, a transverse scar in upper abdomen, left hydrocele and pale white stools. Dr S took the hot seat while Dr D & Dr S wore the examiner hat. There was some confusion in identifying the clinical signs in the video. We had a good discussion on what should be done in a situation when you are not sure of the signs you ‘see’.

Learning points:

  • Do Not shy away from asking a question to examiner
  • Clinical sign – Clarify your doubt – if not sure – ASK the examiner
  • Examiner will normally clarify a specific point.
  • Do not ask – What can I see? Is that line a scar or mark for measurement?
  • Develop a differential diagnosis of 2-3 on evidence noted.
  • In management – discuss the ‘child’ in front of you
  • Do NOT give generic management as in the books
  • Be age specific in management discussion
  • Refer to your consultant and tertiary units for advice
  • Do NOT be prejudiced by previous experience of similar video
