What are common presentations in pediatric emergency elective?

Recommended Posts

Common presentations (not exhaustive list): Rashes, otitis media, pharyngitis/bronchitis/pneumonia, fever NYD in infant, UTI, MSK complaints/injuries, head injuries (usually minor), asthma/anaphylaxis, cuts/scrapes (chance to suture/staple, glue), rule out meningitis, gastroenteritis, abdominal pain, seizures. Helpful way to prepare is reading peds section of whatever you use to study (i.e. Toronto notes).  Adult emerge is quite different- a lot more chest pain/COPDE/CHFE, syncope, falls, failure to cope, gyne issues, but still has a lot of overlap with peds emerg.
