(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) As part of its continuing medical education programme, Lotus Children's Hospital in Muscat on Sunday held a conference on multi-disciplinary care in critical paediatric cases. 

The conference's objective was to bring professionals together for exchanging ideas and forging an association for better treatment of children in Oman.

Dr Qasem al Salmi, the director general at The Royal Hospital and chief guest of the event, said, ''Inflammation in the digestive and respiratory systems are the most common paediatric diseases. In Oman, very few children need critical care as they are vaccinated on time, which prevents diseases from spreading.''

Dr V S V Prasad, chief consultant neonatologist and paediatrics intensivist and chief executive officer at Lotus Children's Hospital, gave a presentation on 'Infantile diabetes with shock and multiorgan failure'. It addressed  clinical issues and problems, including clinical management options and dilemmas, and dangers of hypokalemia.

 

Dr Prashant Patil, consultant paediatric cardiologist at Lotus Children's Hospital, gave a presentation on 'Cardiac emergencies in newborns' and explained why cyanotic congenital heart disease is often not detected at birth. During the presentation, Dr Patil cited a UK study saying that routine neonatal examination fails to detect more than half of babies with heart defects of all types, and more than one-third by the sixth week examination.

The study suggested that a normal neonatal examination does not guarantee that the baby is normal and certainly does not exclude life-threatening cardiovascular malformations. He said that a persistent murmur or any other sign of congenital heart disease should warrant  prompt paediatric cardiac evaluation.
