This journal club we reviewed the PED sickle cell with fever protocol. Below are the highlights from that protocol that we found to be the most important steps of the protocol that also had some evidence behind them in the articles listed below. (BTW in the first article Gibbs is one of the authors!)
Hope you enjoy!
This year the PEM fellows have decided to do PEM Journal club a little differently from last year. Periodically we will critically appraise the evidence behind the clinical protocols that we currently use in our Pediatric ED to better understand why we do what we do.
For our first protocol, we reviewed the new Peds ED Asthma Pathway. Below are the take home points for the main topics that we discussed.
