October 2017 PDF digest

Local anaesthetic cream this month (why do some places not use it in the under 1’s?), a link to useful “flash card” learning in the paediatric ED from Leicester, new Movicol doses, diphtheria and the last instalment of urinalysis with bilirubin and urobilinogen.  A reminder also to please discuss children with glycosuria and a high BM with a paediatrician – most children have type 1 diabetes and are at risk of DKA at diagnosis.  Do leave comments below:

Migraine headache

I featured a headache guideline from Great Ormond Street Hospital in August 2011’s Paediatric Pearls. My colleague, Dr Simon Whitmarsh, has kindly allowed me to upload his migraine headache patient/parent information leaflet which I hope you and your patients will find useful. Please ensure that, as a courtesy, you acknowledge it as Simon’s work when you use it.
