Where would the world of paediatrics be without POCUS? We’d still be trying (and failing) to cannulate chubby toddlers by feel alone, we’d still be using radioactive waves to determine if the child in front of us has pneumonia and we wouldn’t have this eye-opening talk from Russ and Cian.

What’s your preferred BRUE?: Sarah McNab at DFTB19

Sarah McNab, Director of General Paediatrics at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, takes us through an interactive case of a child with an apparent, life-threatening event. At least that is what we used to call it. Is it a BRUE or is it something more serious? Should parents buy a home apnoea monitor? The guidelines say ‘No’ but Sarah offers an alternative view.

Meredith Borland is a paediatric emergency physician and the Director of Emergency Medicine at Perth Children’s Hospital in Perth, Western Australia. She was a founding member of the PREDICT Executive and is the current chair of PREDICT.

Last year at DFTB18, Meredith continued an ongoing discussion about the use of steroids in wheeze. This year, she took us on a journey through an emergency department visit for a number of children who may or may not receive various interventions. This was a fun, interactive and thought-provoking talk that highlighted some common differences in practice.
