We all know that kids are not just little adults. Pediatric patients sometimes present with their own unique medical issues that adults do not have, or the evaluation and treatment of some conditions may differ based on the age of the patient. In this presentation, we'll go over 4 recently published guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (acute bacterial sinusitis, acute otitis media, RSV bronchiolitis, and urinary tract infection) and how to incorporate the recommendations in these guidelines in a typical, non-pediatric urgent care clinic.
- Recite current guidelines for treatment of acute otitis media in the pediatric patient.
- Discuss the treatment of RSV bronchiolitis based on the newest guidelines from the AAP.
- Evaluate a febrile child for urinary tract infection in an algorithmic way.
- List the differences between the newest treatment guidelines for evaluation of urinary tract infection and RSV bronchiolitis versus previous guidelines.
- Recognize diagnostic criteria for acute bacterial sinusitis in the pediatric patient
