Cerebrospinal fluid diversion procedures have saved more lives than any other neurosurgical procedure. However, they do have a unique set of complications which a paediatrician in a district general hospital may encounter. Timely recognition and appropriate referral to the neurosurgeon is vital in order to avoid serious consequences and to have a favourable outcome.

William P Whitehouse, Shakti Agrawal
Headache is very common in children and young people. The correct advice and treatment requires consideration of a wide differential diagnosis between primary and secondary headaches, and also of the different types of primary headache. The International Classification of Headache Disorders gives useful descriptions and diagnostic criteria that are especially useful for primary headaches. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Clinical Guideline 150 provides evidence-based recommendations on treatments for adults and young people from age 12 years...

David King, Noreen West, Charlotte Elder
The teaching and training of doctors-in-training in paediatrics has become increasingly challenging in recent times. All too often there is a perception that training must come second to service provision. In this article, the case of a child with community-acquired pneumonia is considered and used to illustrate how a culture of teaching can be embedded in everyday clinical practice.

Sleep is fundamental to good health. Healthcare professionals receive little teaching on the importance of sleep, particularly with respect to their own health when working night shifts. Knowledge of basic sleep physiology, together with simple strategies to improve core sleep and the ability to cope with working nights, can result in significant improvements both for healthcare professionals and for the patients they care for. "You're not healthy unless your sleep is healthy"Professor William Dement, Stanford University, one of the founders of modern sleep medicine...

E Hoskison, J Grainger
Stridor is an abnormal sound caused by turbulent airflow through the airway. In an infant under 3 months of age presenting with stridor, there are many different underlying aetiologies. Some key assessment points help to differentiate those patients who can be reassured and monitored versus those requiring referral to an ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon for further assessment or management. We present a structured approach to guide the clinician through initial assessment, examination and management, including referral to ENT surgery...

Julia A Bielicki, David A Cromwell, Mike Sharland
Potentially life-threatening infections require immediate antibiotic therapy. Most early stage antibiotic treatment for these infections is empirical, that is, covering a range of possible target bacteria while awaiting culture results. Empirical antibiotic regimens need to reflect the epidemiology of most likely causative bacteria, type of infection and patient risk factors. Summary data from relevant isolates in similar patients help to identify appropriate empirical regimens. At present, such data are mostly presented as hospital or other aggregate antibiograms, showing antimicrobial susceptibility testing results by bacterial species...

James Davison
White blood cell (leucocyte) enzyme assays are an important part of the investigation of potential metabolic disorders, in particular, lysosomal storage disorders. It is imperative that appropriate tests are selected, and that knowledge of the limitations of these assays is applied to avoid erroneous conclusions about confirmation or exclusion of diagnoses.

Peter Sidgwick, Emily Harrop, Brenda Kelly, Ana Todorovic, Dominic Wilkinson
Perinatal palliative medicine is an emerging subspecialty within paediatric palliative medicine, neonatal medicine, fetal medicine and obstetrics. It comprises patient-focused, non-judgemental shared decision making and aims to provide holistic multidisciplinary support for families. In this paper we define and describe one model for providing perinatal palliative care, drawing on the personal and professional experience of the authors.

J Cyriac, Katy Holden, Kjell Tullus
'Urine dipstick', the commonly used point-of-care test, is an extremely sensitive investigation. Results of this test affected by numerous factors, if not meticulously linked with detailed history and examination, can lead a well-meaning clinician down the wrong clinical pathway. The aim of this article is to provide an overview of this every day test, touching on the physiological and technological basis initially, but mainly focusing on common questions like when to request the dipstick test, the correlation of dipstick results with urine specimen collected by different method and complexities of interpretation of dipstick results in everyday clinical scenarios...

Acute confusional state (ACS) refers to sudden impairment of cognitive function and represents a major medical emergency. The impairment may be global or confined specifically to a particular faculty of higher mental function, such as memory. This review highlights the importance of relevant medical history and clinical signs and symptoms in reaching the correct diagnosis. In this review, we have presented a diagnostic approach to a child presenting with ACS and described commonly encountered causes, their treatments and outcomes...

Simon B Drysdale, Dominic F Kelly
Enterovirus (EV) is the most common cause of aseptic meningitis and has a benign course, unlike EV encephalitis, which can result in long-term neurological sequelae. There are no active treatments or prophylactic agents, and management is purely supportive. Obtaining an EV-positive cerebrospinal fluid result usually allows antimicrobial treatment to be stopped. This review will answer some of the common questions surrounding EV meningitis/encephalitis.
