think about Kawasaki Disease
sandpaper rash
Scarlet Fever
caused by parvovirus B19. There is frequently an associated low-grade fever (100 to 101) with a rash appearing 7 to 10 days later. The characteristic rash starts as facial erythema -- the "slapped cheek" appearance. This can spread to the trunk and have an erythematous macular appearance. Central clearing of the rash appears, giving a lacy appearance. The rash often lasts longest on the extremities, where it has a lacy, reticular appearance.
Erythema infectiosum - Also called fifth disease, t
After a prodrome of fever (over 101), cough, coryza, and conjunctivitis, this maculopapular rash starts on the neck, behind the ears, and along the hairline. It spreads downward, and reaches the feet in 2-3 days. Immunization is very effective in preventing this infection.
This macular or maculopapular rash starts on the trunk and spreads to the arms and neck. There is usually less involvement of the face and legs. The rash is preceded by 3-4 days of high fevers, which end as the rash appears. It is usually seen in children less than 2 years old.
The rash starts on the trunk and spreads to the extremities and head. Each lesion progresses from an erythematous macule to papule to vesicle to pustule, and then crusts over. Lesions at various stages of development are seen in the same area of the body. There is usually a mild fever. The disease is self-limited, lasting about 1 week.

Mild forms can be seen in viral gastroenteritis. More severe forms (sodium <120mg/dl) can be seen in free water or diluted formula replacement, or in adrenal insufficiency.
isotonic dehydration
(Na = 130-145 mEq/dl).
This is the most common type of dehydration in children, including children presenting with acute gastroenteritis and in DKA.
(Na>145 mEq/dl)
This is seen most commonly in breastfeeding failure, use of inappropriate rehydration solutions (boiled milk) and diabetes insipidus.

BAL is typically performed to diagnose lung disease. In particular, BAL is commonly used to diagnose infections in people with immune system problems, pneumonia in people on ventilators, some types of lung cancer, and scarring of the lung (interstitial lung disease).

what happens to your acid/base system if you loose xs potassium (ex: from diuretics)
you have a metabolic alkalosis (K exits the cell, H goes into the cell). You can then get compensatory hypoventilation to increase PCO2
when assessing an acutely ill child, what are the three things you need to do first
ABCs: establish a patent airway, assess breathing and respiratory distress, assess that there has been no circulatroy compromise.
What is Cushing's triad?
hypertension, bradycardia and respiratory depression are signs of increased intracranial pressure, but will not occur until the patient is near the point of uncal herniation
Name 3 metabolic causes of increased ICP.
Metabolic causes of increased ICP include Reye's syndrome, liver failure, and electrolyte disturbances. These are diffuse encephalopathies and are unlikely to present with focal findings. Increased ICP can occur and can present with altered mental status and papilledema.
Would you expect to see papilledema with meningitis?
no, Meningitis usually presents with altered mental status (irritability, lethargy, coma), fever and signs of meningeal irritation. Focal findings are rare, as is papilledema. In fact, finding papilledema should prompt you to seriously consider other diagnoses.
The constellation of anemia, basophilic stippling and constipation in a child with radiodense material in the rectum points to the diagnosis of
lead intoxication. The presence of cerebral edema and seizures raises the diagnosis to acute lead poisoning.

what endocrine abnormality are down's syndrome babies at risk for
lymphedema in utero, which is the cause of many of the physical findings such as the webbed neck, low placement of ears, edema of the hands and feet, hyperconvex nails and a "shield" chest with widely spaced nipples. Coarctation of the aorta is found in about 20% of affected girls. Short stature is common, and some girls are not diagnosed until early adolescence when they present with short stature and delayed sexual maturation (due to gonadal dysgenesis). Most have a normal IQ.
Turner's Syndrome
Clinical features include microphthalmia, microcephaly and severe mental retardation, polydactyly, cleft lip and palate, cardiac and renal defects, umbilical hernias, and cutis aplasia.

Edward's (Trisomy 18)
What is the dif between a holosystolic murmur and an ejection murmur
A "holosystolic" murmur is S1 coincident, meaning that the murmur starts with S1, not after it. An ejection murmur is also systolic but does not start until after S1 because there is a delay from S1 to the onset of ejection - the isovolumic contraction time.
What is a holosystolic murmur associated with?
A VSD, mitral insufficiency and tricuspid insufficiency.A VSD causes a holosystolic murmur because flow through the VSD starts with the onset of ventricular contraction.
What is an ejection murmur associated with?
Ejection murmurs occur with aortic and pulmonic valve stenosis.
differential of hepatomegaly in an infant
The differential of hepatomegaly in an infant includes congestive heart failure, congenital infections, inborn errors of metabolism, anemias, and less commonly tumors.
Still's murmur
Innocent murmur: This is often described as musical or vibratory, and is heard best at the left lower sternal border in the supine position.
widely split, fixed S2 in a child aged 3-5 years
pathognomonic physical finding of an atrial septal defect.The systolic murmur is due to increased flow across a normal pulmonic valve.
when does coarctation of the aorta present?
infancy or at any age beyond because it tends to be a progressive problem, gradually getting more severe over a number of years. Coarctation presents with a murmur, hypertension in the upper extremities, and a discrepancy between the upper and lower extremity blood pressures.
what congenital heart defects typically present in infancy?
Ventricular septal defects, aortic and pulmonic stenosis, patent ductus arteriosus, and tetralogy of Fallot
There is a prominent systolic ejection click just after S1, and a harsh systolic ejection murmur.
pulmonic stenosis
vibratory and low pitched, and is heard best at the left lower sternal border. The vibratory quality is the most characteristic feature of an innocent murmur.
innocent murmur
Which congenital heart defects can present with CHF in the newborn?
VSD, Aortic Stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, large PDA
pathophysiology behind CHF in children 2/2 a VSD
The infant with a VSD is supplying enough blood to the tissues to meet the body's metabolic needs, but is doing it from an elevated filling pressure (due to the left ventricular volume overload). The adequate cardiac output is achieved by creating a high adrenergic state and by activating the renin-angiotensin system. Many of the symptoms of CHF in the infant are caused by these neurohormonal changes.
why are VSD typically not heard at birth, but wks later
Newborns have elevated pulmonary vascular resistance. Since the systemic and pulmonary vascular resistances (PVR) are nearly equal, there is no reason for blood to shunt through the VSD. Classic teaching is that VSD murmurs are not heard in the nursery, and that was the case for Tyler. The murmur of a VSD will appear when the PVR drops, usually at a few days to weeks of age.
treatment of CHF 2/2 a VSD in an infant
Digoxin and diuretics
What is Eisenmenger's syndrome?
The pulmonary vasculature constricts in response to exposure to high pressure and high flow. With chronic exposure to these conditions the pulmonary vasculature will develop permanent changes and loses the ability to relax, even if the VSD is closed. This causes the pulmonary vascular resistance to exceed the systemic resistance, and shunting through the VSD will shift to right to left. The patient will then develop cyanosis, progressing to polycythemia, heart failure and death. Most patients with Eisenmenger's disease will live into their twenties, but with a very impaired quality of life.

Patients with a large unrepaired VSD will universally develop Eisenmenger's disease. In general this will not occur before 2 years of age, but VSD closure is now recommended at earlier ages to completely prevent development of Eisenmenger's disease.
