I have been struggling with what to present at a conference in May. Audience will be various providers from MDs , MLPs, paramedics, etc.
I was thinking of presenting a few clinical scenarios and the most current literature that has altered or impacted our evaluation, and or treatment
For example the recent articles on the value of CRP and procalcitonin in the febrile infant, the value of I/T ratios for rule out sepsis,
use of albuterol, racemic epinephrine, hypertonic saline for bronchiolitis ( since bronchiolitis season will have passed by the conference this isn't too appealing to me)
Perhaps US v CT for diagnosis of acute appendicitis,
value of observation after blunt head trauma, safety of sending home with nml exam and neg CT,
However after participating in and monitoring the listserve since it's inception I am keenly aware of the great treasure trove it provides wrt your insight and knowledge.
I am hoping you might be willing to share what you think might be some of the most cutting edge breakthroughs of the past 1-2 years.
Or suggest some topic that will have a broad application..
