In the three years since we launched the Bubble Wrap segment, we have been able to highlight a number of key articles in paediatric research. In this talk from the popular Bubble Wrap Live! sessions, Edward Snelson brought us his top five favourite articles from the world of paediatric emergency medicine.
He eloquently confronts his own biases and suggests a more critical way of looking at the patient in front of us.
Here are the five articles Edward chose.

This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal. DFTB20 will be held in Brisbane, Australia.
