This is the audio from a recent hangout chat about the common problems we face when trying to assess and manage small children with fever in the ED.
Teething, UTIs,, otitis media, pneumonia and all the ways we can get it wrong are discussed.

After the recent publication of the process trial in the NEJM and discussion all over the FOAM forums - I have been contemplating how we might apply the findings in our smaller EDs, in the small rural towns where patients still get sepsis, and I believe should get world's best care.
PROCESS has many helpful findings that I think we can utilise... despite being a negative trial!
Here's my thoughts in the first "Broome Pearl" podcast - its just me, solo with my thoughts....
A few links that I mention:
The ProCess trial in NEJM and supplementary data are HERE
The New York STOP SEPSIS collaboration has info on EMCRIT HERE
Simon Carley's piece on St Emlyn's looking at our outcomes with Sepsis over the past dozen years
Seth Trueger's analysis on MDAware is here

Lots of pearls from a guy who does this sort of thing a lot! Dr Tim

Ever considered getting out of Medicine - changing you life for a different trade - losing the identity of "Doctor"
Here is a candid chat with my friend who did just that.
Hear how it goes. Casey
