The DFTB team are really excited to announce an upcoming video series…We have teamed up with APLS to share the videos from their Paediatric Acute Care Conferences. These videos have never been open access before, so if you weren’t able to attend the conferences, then now’s your chance to catch up.
A 7-month old male infant arrived in the ED at 7:45 a.m. after passing a dark maroon colored stool with clots at 7:00 a.m. He has passed small amounts of blood in his stools intermittently since 4 months of age, but this current episode is the worst it has ever been.
Jamie is a 4 year old with ongoing pyrexia for a couple of weeks. He has a mild cough but nothing else. The family mention in passing that grandad recently had TB. Is this common in the developed world? How would you recognise it and treat it?
