CME Courses by Daniel Wood, PA-C
Neurology Snapshot- Pediatric Mashup: Pediatric Headache and Rash
In music, a mashup is a creative blend of two different styles to create a transformative experience. Fussy infants are a frequent chief complaint for new and experienced parents and providers that cause anxiety. In a case study approach, the participant will work through case studies of fussy infants concluding with a mnemonic to assist the provider the next time they encounter a fussy infant in the clinic or emergency department. Pediatric headaches is another cause
Cardiology Snapshot- Game Show: Pediatric Chest Pain
In the spirit of a TV game show, we will answer questions about clinical chest pain scenarios in children. Pediatric chest pain is a frequent reason for an unscheduled visit to a primary care office or an emergency department in children and adolescents. Although alarming and unexpected to parents, chest pain in children is usually not caused by a serious disease – unlike in the adult population. Pediatric chest pain can broadly be classified into cardiac chest pain and non-cardiac chest pain. Questions will cover the causes of non-cardiac chest pain, far the most common cause of chest pain, and the differential diagnosis and management for cardiac chest pain, which includes inflammatory, increase in myocardial demand or decreased oxygen supply, and coronary abnormalities. The lecture will finish with a final round for double points.
Gastroenterology Snapshot- Pediatric HIIT Workout: Pediatric Abdominal Pain and Limping Child
Abdominal pain is common in children and adolescents, and evaluation requires an understanding of the pathogenesis of abdominal pain. Acute abdominal pain is common in children and adolescents and can range from a harmless bellyache to an emergency requiring immediate action. Assessing acute abdominal pain requires clinical acumen because making the incorrect diagnosis can have devastating consequences. Learn how to differentiate between which complaints require immediate attention and how to categorize abdominal pain as common or uncommon and serious or less serious. In a Tabata style – to avoid brain plateau – this lecture will finish with a quick case study of a limping child.
