This episode of PEM Currents: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine podcast focuses on dealing with delirium and is part of a collaboration with the POPCoRN Network.
Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) is an evolving clinical entity that is occurring, possibly in association with or following a COVID-19 infection. This episode of PEM Currents expands upon a recent PEMBlog post, as well as includes information from two studies published in The LANCET as well as included in a recent CDC webinar. This episode also provides recommendations on lab workup and the evolving criteria for diagnosis and the current case definition from the CDC.
This is obviously still an evolving issue, but here is a summary of initial data, along with some preliminary recommendations on the "Kawasaki-like" illness in COVID-19 children. AKA - Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children.
Pulmonary emboli happen in kids too - but for those of you tasked with caring for adults during the COVID-19 pandemic (and beyond) I bring you this podcast episode in collaboration with the POPCoRN Network on PE diagnosis and management.
