The Collapsed Cardiac Child: Kath Browning Carmo at DFTB18


There is nothing like the thought of dealing with a shocked neonate to strike the fear of the almighty into the most experienced doctor. If you are lucky enough to have Kath Browning Carmo on speed dial then you may be a little more relaxed but if you don’t here she is to offer some words of comfort.

(Kath has chosen Moonlight Sonata as her ringtone so she gets woken gently rather than in a fluster – what a great idea: Ed)

Here’s a sketch note from the talk by @char_durand

If you want to get a better idea of some of the congenital abnormalities that can occur then take a look at these animations from Cincinatti Children’s.

This talk was recorded live at DFTB18 in Melbourne, Australia. With the theme of ‘Science and Story‘ we pushed our speakers to step out of their comfort zones and consider why we do what we do. Caring for children is not just about acquiring the scientific knowhow but also about taking a look beyond a diagnosis or clinical conundrum at the patient and their families.

DFTB19 has already sold out but there are still spots for some of the pre-conference workshops.
