Fever of Unknown Source - Part 1

Just in time for the winter season.....

Have you seen a bunch of snot-nose kids with fever recently?  Do you want to put a needle in their back?  Better yet, do you not want to put a needle in their back, but feel really guilty about it?

I sat down with Texas Children’s very own Dr. Andrea Cruz who is triple boarded in pediatrics, pediatric emergency medicine and pediatric infectious disease to talk about fever without a source in neonates/infants and who really needs that LP.

There are so many pearls here that I am going to break  this into 2 podcasts.  Enjoy part one now and don’t forget to check out the link to my “fever without a source” algorithm link below.
