Podcast #25: “Kids, Spots n Dots”

spottedOnce again I’m joined by Dr Natalie May who is steadily becoming our resident specialist on all things kid related. In this podcast I asked Natalie to give me and the operational Paramedic some insight into childhood illnesses commonly seen alongside a rash. It’s important to remember that a whole host of childhood diseases present with a rash and when making a diagnosis we need to take a few things into consideration. Of course, as preHospital care providers our first main worry is always the rash associated with meningitis. In this podcast we discuss the difference between meningitis and meningococcal meningitis. My thanks to Natalie for supporting Paramedic FOAMed.
