This 2 day workshop will focus on the clinical skills that are required and essential for the recognition and emergency management of the seriously ill infant and young child.
Managing the seriously ill child can be one of the most frightening and distressing experiences for the clinician. There are many challenges to assessing and treating the child presenting with serious illness including: recognising the early signs of serious illness, lack of a detailed history and examination, issues relating to patient cooperation, procedural difficulties (e.g. obtaining IV access) and physiological challenges (eg masking of signs of severe illness and risk for rapid deterioration).
In this course we explore the immediate assessment and treatment of the seriously ill child beginning by examining the assessment and treatment of immediate life threating problems to the airway, breathing, circulation and central nervous system.
Presentations covered in the course include the following: anaphylaxis, severe respiratory disease (including asthma, bronchiolitis, pneumonia) upper airway obstruction (including croup, epiglottitis, foreign body), illness associated with vomiting / dehydration (including gastroenteritis, diabetic ketoacidosis, pyloric obstruction, malrotation, intussusception, closed head injury, NAI and acute poisoning), GI foreign body, status epilepticus, rashes associated with life threatening illness and febrile illnesses (including sepsis, meningitis and other serious bacterial infections, bacteraemia in the non-immunised child and Kawasaki disease).
Utilising an interactive approach to clinical education, built around the use of clinical case studies and clinical simulations, to foster visual learning and enhance the translation of knowledge and critical thinking to clinical practice.
This workshop is designed for medical officers, nurses, paramedics and students in all medical fields
