Topic #1: Pediatric Envenomations: Don’t Get Bitten By An Unclear Plan Of Care
This audio summary is intended for emergency clinicians, hospitalists, and critical care physicians who may be called upon to treat patients envenomated by reptiles, spiders, and insects. While the majority of these bites or stings are nondangerous, pediatric patients occasionally encounter a venomous animal. Envenomations are rare events for most clinicians, and the pattern of presentation, complications, and treatment vary between different types of envenomation. Appropriate management may be challenging due to a lack of familiarity with these presentations. In this audio summary, the most common envenomations are reviewed, including the spectrum of presentations, potential treatment options, and controversies and disposition.
Length: 19 minutes
CME Objectives: After listening to this audio summary, you will be able to:(1) identify the common presentation of bites and stings from various terrestrial venomous animals in North America; and (2) review the management options for each type of envenomation covered.
Topic #2: Best Practices In The Emergency Department Management Of Children With Special Needs
This audio summary is intended for emergency clinicians, hospitalists, and general pediatricians who may be called upon to treat emergent complications in patients requiring assistive technology and in patients with developmental delays. Children requiring assistive technologies such as gastrostomy tubes, ventricular shunts, and tracheostomies are a burgeoning population more frequently growing to adulthood and often presenting to emergency departments and primary providers for management of these devices and complications related to these devices. Additionally, patients with developmental delays may present to the ED for any number of conditions, and require care tailored to their developmental levels. In this audio summary, recognition and management of the most common and life-threatening complications of gastrostomy tubes, ventricular shunts, and tracheostomies are reviewed. Additionally, management of agitation of pediatric patients with developmental delays is discussed.
Length: 21 minutes
CME Objectives: After listening to this audio summary, you will be able to: (1) troubleshoot a gastrostomy tube that is not functioning; (2) assess the best method of management of tracheostomy tube complications; and (3) manage ventricular shunt obstructions efficiently.
Topic #3: Inhaled Foreign Bodies In Pediatric Patients: Proven Management Techniques In The Emergency Department
This audio summary is intended for all emergency clinicians and general pediatricians. Foreign body inhalation affects thousands of children every year, and it remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in children. Unwitnessed foreign body inhalation in children can be difficult to recognize, especially when symptoms are nonspecific. In this audio summary, the common physical examination and radiographic findings associated with aspirated foreign bodies are discussed. Additionally, techniques for timely diagnosis and management are addressed to aid in limiting long-term complications.
Length: 12 minutes
CME Objectives: After listening to this audio summary, you will be able to: (1) discuss the utility of various radiographic and imaging approaches to foreign body inhalation; (2) list the characteristics of patients and objects that are at higher risk for foreign body inhalation; and (3) identify clinical clues of a chronic and acute retained aspirated foreign body.
Topic #4: Septic Shock: Recognizing And Managing This Life-Threatening Condition In Pediatric Patients
This audio summary is intended for emergency clinicians, hospitalists, and critical care physicians who need to promptly recognize and care for infants and children experiencing sepsis or septic shock. The definition and management of septic shock is constantly being refined, and the recent Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3) guidelines are discussed. It should be noted, however, that these definitions are primarily for adults and seem to be more focused on identifying patients for research rather than being useful in recognition of patients in shock. The definitions focus on end-organ dysfunction which often requires laboratory testing rather than clinical findings, such as heart rate, temperature, etc. In this audio summary, recognition of pediatric sepsis is discussed, as well as management in and beyond the emergency department. The applicability of these new definitions in children and their usefulness in management is addressed, as the management of children does not always mirror that of adults.
Length: 16 minutes
CME Objectives: After listening to this audio summary, you will be able to: (1) discuss the new definitions of sepsis and septic shock as updated by JAMA in early 2016; and (2) evaluate and describe the management techniques for pediatric patients with sepsis and septic shock.
