The management of solid organ injuries has been evolving over the last 10 years and understanding these new Pediatric Surgical Association’s guidelines have implications for advanced practice providers in both primary and acute care settings. The lecture will review the epidemiology of pediatric solid organ injury, the indications for non-operative management and will focus on the recommendations which outpatient pediatric-focused NPs can use to advise families on activity, follow-up and need for emergent re-assessment.

Penicillin allergy, the most commonly reported allergy in a pediatric patient, is associated with increases in cost of care, hospitalization and morbidity, as well as contributing to antibiotic resistance. However, 95% of patients labeled with a penicillin allergy do not have a true allergy. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention has identified improper use of antibiotics to be an important factor that must be addressed for both patient safety and public health. This presentation will identify high-risk symptoms of allergy, differentiate between adverse reactions, IgE-mediated allergic reaction and delayed T-cell reactions, as well as discuss appropriate testing for penicillin allergy. Additionally, the presenter will address alternative antibiotics that can be used until a formal allergy evaluation can be completed.
