Neonates have rashes of all shapes and sizes. It’s important for us to be able to reassure parents where appropriate and act when we need to. This two part series deals with neonatal dermatology. In Part 1, we looked at the benign conditions, but in Part 2 we will look at the conditions that you shouldn’t…

Bottom Line: Consider and identify hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy early Induced hypothermia aka cooling improves mortality rates without additional adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes at 18 months If the child fits the FEAST criteria during or soon after resus, they might be a candidate for cooling Neonates must only be actively cooled in a tertiary neonatal centre Use…

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…

Covering the Birthsuite can be wonderful and terrifying. Neonatal resus should be both easy and scary, every time. If you’re not even a little, tiny bit scared, you’re quite possibly “doing it wrong”, and almost always, sticking to the algorithm ensures that you do the right thing for the patient.
