Pediatric emergencies: Different cases, different approaches

Managing unusual abdominal injuries, including intussusception, Hirschsprung disease and appendicitis


In this episode of the Reel Emergency Vodcast, check out footage of a few pediatric cases, specifically kids experiencing abdominal emergencies.

The little patients are ones we don’t see frequently, so we picked cases that are unusual, and we’ll also learn how they are managed at the hospital.

Videos include the intestinal emergency of intussusception, Hirschsprung disease and appendicitis.

Join Drs. Antevy, Spiro and Piehl who review this case with special guest Maia Dorsett.

Reel Emergency covers the latest evidence with real cases in emergency and critical care medicine. Produced in partnership with ReelDx, Handtevy and 410 Medical. CE available from Prodigy EMS.
