  2. 2. + Learning Objectives  Revise key Indicative Presentations for the AMK including…  Paediatric emergencies (“what would you do first?”)  Common inherited conditions  Community Paediatrics (normal development, vaccinations)  Common childhood infections and their management  Fractures and common injuries
  3. 3. + Q: Febrile Child  A mother from Totnes brings her 22 month old daughter to ED. She has been off colour for 5 days and visibly unwell for 48 hours with a coryzal illness, pyrexia and lethargy. She had Calpol 2 hours ago. O/E: HR 165, RR 35, Sats 97% on air, BP 90/60, Cap Refill 3 secs,Temp 37.6oC.

Rubella Respiratory spread, 14-21 day incubation. Fever, then spreading maculopapular rash (face to trunk) which fades in 3-5 days. !! Pregnancy !! Fifth Disease Aka ‘Slapped Cheek’ caused by Parvovirus. Painless rash on one/both cheeks. Mild fever, usually self-limiting. Peak incidence April/May Chickenpox Respiratory spread. 10-21 day incubation. Clusters of vesicles over head/neck/trunk. Intensely itchy. Papule  Vesicle  Pustule  Crust + Scratch marks Kawasaki’s (vasculitis) Fever >5 days + Strawberry tongue, peeling skin (desquamation) , cervical lymphadenopathy, bilateral conjunctivitis.

Presents with intermittent, painless blood PR. Dx via Technetium scan to find ectopic gastric mucosa Gastroschisis Where abdomen is not covered by peritoneum. This is found prenatally or postnatally and repaired surgically Appendicitis Rarer cause of acute abdomen for age group (usually 10-20y/o). Migratory pain, not colicky. O/E usually no mass to palpate
  11. 11. + Q: Respiratory Distress  A 6 year old African-Caribbean girl comes to ED with her father. She appears lethargic and is sat quietly, but clearly struggling to breathe.

  15. 15. + Respiratory Tract Infections Epiglottitis Causes severe life-threatening stridor quickly due to H. Influenzae infection. If suspected, don’t delay urgent GA and upper airway endoscopy needed Croup Usually mild, viral illness. Also causes stridor and a barking cough (like a sealion). May have fever and develops more slowly. Usually affects children 6m to 5yrs Bronchiolitis Viral RTI affecting children under 2 years (peak 3-6m). Seasonal illness (winter). Usually caused by Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).Treat with fluids, O2 Foreign Body Sudden onset of SOB ± history of aspiration from observer. Unilateral signs (wheeze/reduced air entry). RHS more common

Treated with Benzodiazepines  Phenobarbitol  Phenytoin
  32. 32. + Summary and Top Tips  If it’s obvious, go for it; they’re probably not trying to trick you!  Read the vignettes carefully looking for key words. Bring a highlighter if that helps  Write things out if that works for you, especially for genetics questions  If the question asks what you’d do FIRST… it’s probably“high flow oxygen”  Don’t get too bogged down with details, remember the big stuff and the common stuff and you’ll be fine!
  33. 33. + Some Key Words/Phrases  Strawberry tongue and ‘desquamation’ of palms = Kawasaki’s  Redcurrant jelly stool/sausagey mass = Intussusception  Sick child sat forward and drooling = epiglottitis  Barking cough = Croup Spiral fracture = Non-accidental injury
  34. 34. + Learning Objectives  Revise key Indicative Presentations for the AMK including…  Paediatric emergencies (“what would you do first?”)  Common inherited conditions  Community Paediatrics (normal development, vaccinations)  Common childhood infections and their management  Fractures and common injuries
