Excellent lecture
By Jalil Z. on 22. July 2020 for Pediatric Pneumothorax

Clear classification between small, large and tension. Clear risk factors of spontaneous PNE. All in all, I learned new things to appropriately diagnose and manage PNE.

Vey good lecture
By Jalil Z. on 22. July 2020 for Pediatric Pulmonary Embolism (PE)

Very good lecture. This allowed me to transfer my knowledge from the adult medicine to pediatrics regarding PE. However, I would have liked more info regarding the link with DVT and the clinical aspects of PE in children like clinical cases maybe and also a part about management. That being said I do understand it is not a typical pediatrics disease as it can be in adult medicine.

Great update on current knowledge
By Jalil Z. on 09. July 2020 for Bronchiolitis: Diagnosis

Another great lecture, where all the following are covered: - Myths: oxygen, etc. - Asthma vs Bronchiolitis - Pavalizumab - Current literature on brochiolitis - Experience from an advanced practitioner I work in a Swiss hospital and even though we follow as much as possible the AAP recommendation, we are not all the time up-to-date.
