Abstract :

Background: Working in pediatric emergency department is challenging. Starting from ED entrance where unpredictable cases may come through to the urgency for early detection and stabilization of sick children, in a very noisy crowded environment; in addition to; dealing with many parties in ED (staff, families, children, and other specialties) add extra challenge. Objective: To emphasize the importance of physician skills to conduct a proper history and physical examination as they form the corner stone in the chain of patients approach, by demonstrating few real cases from our ED. Methods: I will present 4-5 cases (real patients) to highlight some ticks and tips in history and physical examination in these cases and how we manage them. These cases represent a range of diseases that daily present to ED and can easily be missed unless proper history and exam been carried out, even when no time or even place with urgency to move on to see the next patient. Conclusion: Despite the huge advance in technology which is utilized in medical diagnosis either LAB or imaging, still physician’s skills in history and physical exam are the key point in medical care.
