The team at DFTB had our second article published in the series for Emergency Medicine Australasia Journal.

Every paediatric doctor has a fear of sending home a young, septic child. We constantly review our practice and guidelines on how to identify the septic child amongst the thousands of febrile two-year-olds that present to ED. But what are the consequences if we do miss one?

RSV-positive bronchiolitis in infants is one of the most common reasons for admission to hospital. Sometimes they spike temperatures. It is widely recognised that the rate of serious bacterial infection in these infants is low. But what about the rate of UTIs? Should we be doing urine dips on all febrile babies with bronchiolitis, or…

In the previous post we learnt that although cardiac syncope is rare, it is potentially fatal. It is, therefore, essential that we know how to recognise ECGs that identify the cause of cardiac syncope. Here we discuss some of the more common variants…
