Today we are moving on to a completely new topic, we are going to be discussing a simple approach to pediatric GI complaints. I hope you enjoy it. The majority of this episode will be covering the life-threatening, differential diagnosis for pediatric abdominal pain. It is 12 items long, and can be thought of in regions: Upper Abdomen, Lower Abdomen, Genitourinary, and Generalized.
Also, in this episode, we will discuss how to obtain a quick pediatric GI history, the 5 most common tests that get ordered on children, and a basic GI treatment plan.
Even if your department doesn’t accept children, I still highly encourage you to listen, as this is not only a topic on your shelf, but also a huge topic on Step 2.
