In this episode of the "Critical Decisions in Emergency Medicine" podcast, your hosts, Dr. Danya Khoujah and Dr. Wendy Chang talk with all three authors of “Shake Rattle and Roll”, a lesson that focuses on afebrile seizures in children. There is no doubt, seizures in kids are scary for everyone. How do you determine who needs a work up and what should you look for? What do you tell worried parents if you send them home? The authors share their vast expertise about caring for these little patients that can give you big anxiety. Also, in this episode, “Dangerous Curve, Pediatric Sickle Cell Crisis". Dr. Khoujah and Dr. Chang chat with one of the authors from this lesson as well, and he shares some background information on the disease and what to look for when this patient presents to your ED. Finally, they review the Tox Box, Critical Image and of course, the LLSA review! You don’t want to miss this special one-year anniversary episode! If you have suggestions or comments, we'd love to hear from you!
