So there are fewer cases in children. How much fewer?

Children consistently make up <2% of confirmed COVID-19 cases. These are usually ascertained by testing sick people in hospital

COVID-19 is less severe in children, but often is it severe?

From a Chinese cohort 0.6% needed PICU but lots of community testing involved

US CDC data has 2% of admissions in PICU (limited data)

1/15 #Fever #tweetorial

Parents and paediatricians alike are obsessed with fever

We've all got fever fever 🔥 But it is SO misunderstood

Let's take a look at what fever actually is, and finish off with some myth busting!

Fever (pyrexia) is an elevated core body temperature as part of a physiological response to infection controlled by the hypothalamus

This is opposed to hyperthermia, a pathological elevated temperature

This is important, as your body is IN CONTROL. Fever happens on purpose

What temperature counts as a fever?

There's no strict definition (there's no really good data on what a "normal" temperature is...), but an arbitrary cut of off 38C is often used.

Its better taken in context; 37.8C following temps >38.5C is probably still a fever.

With the help of @PICJournalWatch @harrykchris we though we could put together a collaborative thread with useful #PedsICU resources like apps, websites, blogs and accounts. This thread is open so please don’t hesitate to add yours. Here are mine 👇🏻
Apps:
- I-Perfuse: great tool for anything cardiovascular including #ECMO cannula sizes, equations, a calculator... very useful for #PedsCICU
- Heartpedia: awesome 3D models of heart anatomy. Also great for teaching at the #PedsCICU. And it was created by the great @pccm_doc
Apps continued:
- The Sanford Guide: it costs 25€/year. I’d pay 250€ since I use it everyday in the #PedsICU. Basically everything you need to now about antibiotics and bugs #PedsID.
