Thank you for participating in the session today.
In RRR we discussed:
- Failure of Resuscitation – causes & management
- Bronchiolitis – Symptoms & Signs
- Toddler Diarrhoea
The Video station was of a clip showing a newborn, noted to be ‘mucusy’ with mild respiratory distress noted at 2 hours, now ventilated, Xray was available. Dr D took the hotseat. A very good attempt was made at identifying the clues and asking relevant history and examination however some important cues were missed that were picked by other members. We had a very good discussion on physiology and further management.
The Learning points are:
- See the video carefully – write what you have noted
- Concentrate on other aspects of video (NOT what you have already)
- Oesophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula – was evident
- Other important cues have to be also noted
- VACTERAL association
- Questions to ask – think of important condition – polyhydramnios
- Airway management is First priority
- While discussing Explain NORMAL before talking about ABNORMAL
- Replogle tube: https://www.rch.org.au/rchcpg/hospital_clinical_guideline_index/Replogle_tube_management/
