Katie Reeves: Viral and Pre-School Wheeze at DFTB17


This talk was recorded live on the final day of DFTB17 in Brisbane. If you missed our first conference, check out our YouTube channel.

(Editors note: This talk was recorded way before the results of the recent Paris trial that, depending on your read, may change your stance on the role of steroids in pre-school wheeze.)

Katie is staff specialist in the emergency department at Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane.

Every other child that presents to the emergency department at this time of year (winter in the southern hemisphere) has a wheeze of some sort. Call it what you will episodic viral wheeze, multi-trigger wheeze, pre-asthma, we all seem to have a different idea of what causes it and what we can do about it.

Go ahead and watch the talk…
