Welcome to Fontanelle, the paediatric podcast. I'm Caroline Storey, a paediatric trainee in Wessex, and I'll be joined by wise friends, learned colleagues and leading lights from around the region and beyond to explore common presentations, sticky situations, what's fresh and new, and what's coming of age in paediatric medicine. So if you've got an open mind for learning and a soft spot for the world of paediatrics, you've come to the right place!

Abdo Pain in Children. Topic 6 of Healthier Together with Dr Mark Tighe
Abdominal pain is common in children and concerning for parents with a wide range of differentials. In this episode Dr Mark Tighe, paediatrician in Poole, takes us through some common acute presentations, including appendicitis, torsion and intussusception, as well as the differentials to be considered. He takes us through history and examination, when and where to refer and how to investigate and manage. He then addresses in some depth the problem of recurrent abdominal pain, which he divides up regionally into functional dyspepsia, functional abdominal pain and IBS. Mark describes biophysical modelling and discusses how the enteric nervous system is potentiated by stress. Fascinating and very useful material for any GP or paeds trainee. Many thanks to Mark Tighe for opening up this area. Don't forget to refer to the excellent clinical pathway, red flags and parent information leaflets on Healthier Together https://www.what0-18.nhs.uk/professionals/gp-primary-care-staff/clinical-pathways/padiatric-pathways If you like what you hear, please rate 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 and review on iTunes.

Lymphadenopathy in Children Topic 5 of Healthier Together with Dr Phil Wylie
Lymphadenopathy in children is common and usually benign. How can we distinguish between harmless reactive lymphadenopathy and more sinister causes which might require treatment or further evaluation? Dr Phil Wylie takes us through the history and examination, showing us what to look out for so we can reassure parents all is well, or pick up cases which call for further action. Red flag features include nodes over 2cm and growing, supraclavicular and popliteal nodes nodes, fever, weight loss, night sweats, pain and itching, as well as hepatosplenomegaly, pallor and easy bruising. In this podcast we refer to the Clinical Pathway on Healthier Together https://what0-18.nhs.uk/download_file/493/0 If you enjoy the podcast please subscribe, share and leave a review on iTunes🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Please let me know if you have any suggestions by emailing me, Caroline Storey at fontanellepod@gmail.com Thank you for listening!

Respiratory Tract Infections in Children with Dr Sanjay Patel. Topic 4 of Healthier Together
Respiratory tract infections in under 5s represent two thirds of all presentations to primary care and ED. But why do we see so many of them? What are parents looking for when they bring their children to see a doctor? Dr Sanjay Patel, consultant in paediatric infectious diseases, says the data tells us that parents are not seeking antibiotics, but rather reassurance that their child is well enough to be managed at home without antibiotics. With the emphasis in popular media on serious illness, health-seeking behaviour is going up year on year, with a 25% increase in activity for under 5s with RTIs annually. In our increasingly risk-averse society, there needs to be a seismic change in health seeking behaviour, if we are to avoid the dangers associated with inappropriate antibiotic use. Severity, not aetiology of respiratory tract infections should guide decision making around antibiotic use. Reference is made to the SCAN Guidelines, which can be found at www.nhsantibioticguidelines.org.uk the PIER Guidelines at www.piernetwork.org and the MicroGuide app. Changes to antibiotic policy aim to improve compliance and include use of Amoxicillin for all respiratory tract infections, with a BD dosing regime of 40mg/kg, as well as shortening the course from 10 to 7 days in tonsillitis. Scoring systems discussed include FeverPAIN for suspected Group A Strep tonsillitis. Pneumonia can be diagnosed based on fever, and respiratory distress, with auscultation providing little to support a diagnosis.

Dr Dan Magnus, Paediatric Emergency Medicine Consultant at Bristol Children's Hospital came to the PIER Conference 2018 to talk about staff wellness and wellbeing. This was a tiny snapshot of some of the ideas he presented in his talk, but certainly gives you a taste of his motivation and ideas he's developing to help us all get involved in improving staff wellbeing. I'm definitely inspired, and am sure you will be too! You can check out his work at https://www.yougotthiswellness.com and find Dan at @drdanmagnus .

4. Writing right for publication with Dr Mark Tighe. Highlights from PIER 2018.
I caught up with Dr Mark Tighe, consultant paediatrician and associate editor of Archives of Disease in Childhood. He shared some golden nuggets from his recent talk at PIER 2018 about writing right for publication. There are some super useful tips and ideas here, on how to prepare material in a way which is likely to be accepted by journals, and hence read by colleagues, which is, of course the aim. Particularly as we're all so busy and suffer from the rather wonderful sounding affliction - Tsundoku - the art of buying books and journals, and never reading them!
