- Differentiate between “WNL” and baseline

- Those nasty skin issues… solved!
- Consequences of anaphylaxis and the apnea-reflux connection
I can’t breathe. My head aches. I feel hot. My inhaler is not working. I can’t sleep. I can’t stop coughing. This rash won’t go away. My stomach hurts. Isn’t that a good pulse oximeter number?
All the above sound familiar? These are just a few of the complaints we hear from children when they are “not well”. Children may present with acute illnesses, flare-ups of chronic conditions or life-threatening complications. As pediatric healthcare providers, it is essential that we grasp and understand the inter-relationship of both complex and common pediatric conditions. During this full-day, interactive program, you will learn evidence-based strategies for the recognition, prevention, and management of a number of pediatric conditions that cause children to “not feel so good”, along with the skills to differentiate between CAUSE and SYMPTOM. Stephen will provide you with the knowledge you need through discussion, case studies and “fun”, addressing pharmacological, technological and non-pharmacological management, including critical assessment clues and interventions. You will leave this educational event feeling confident to manage complex childhood conditions!
- Evaluate the key clinical findings required for an efficient and comprehensive multi-system pediatric assessment.
- Interpret physical assessment findings and all the “numbers” to begin to understand the presenting pediatric problem.
- Determine underlying pathophysiology for multi-system conditions in identifying cause versus symptom.
- Discuss the interrelationship of the Immune/Respiratory/GI/Neuro systems and the significance of “linked” symptoms of fluids, mucous, allergies, infections, and reflux.
- Describe appropriate management for sports-related injuries, including concussions.
- Utilize evidence-based guidelines to successfully identify appropriate interventions for the child experiencing “temperature” issues and diarrhea/ dehydration.
- Select the most appropriate strategies to manage childhood asthma, croup and apnea.
- Growth and developmental considerations
- Oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve
- Diagnostics considerations
- Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT)
- Airway clearance: Techniques & technologies
- What the chest x-ray is telling you
- Lab values: Normal vs. baseline
- Pulse oximetry: What does it really mean?
- The allergic cascade
- The concept of linked airways and airway inflammation
- Hygiene hypothesis
- Pulmonary non-pharmacological and technological management
- Oxygen therapy: Devices used for both low and high flow rates
