  • So hot right now: Pediatric fever cases
    Fever in infants and young children is one of the most frequent reasons for ED visits. Underlying disorders range from benign self-limited viral infections to more serious bacterial illnesses. In this talk, we will review what constitutes a fever (what temperature? measured how? at home vs ED?), what determines who needs a work-up (age, risk factors and clinical picture), and which laboratory tests are recommended (bloods, urine studies, CSF analysis etc).
    Deb Schonfeld
