Hi every body
I still remember that child 5 years who came at 10 pm to our ED and seen
by the pediatrician even, he was having 38 c , pediatrician done CBC /WBC
was 5 , and there was only sore throat with big tonsills, the pediatrician
wrote for him augmentine and sicharged...
By 4 am the familly hurries up to the ED carrying thier child ( brough
dead ) with all his legs were petichial hemmorrhage !!
It was a big issue and trouble for every body including the hospital,
then after many discussions, reached that if meningococemia happened then
the death rate of it is 50 % ..is that true? then how we will reach a
confident diagnoses when discharging any child with high fever in ED? and
when to admitt and when to discharge??
