New Approach to febrile infants

Dont´t Forget the Bubbles - By Henry Goldstein - August 15, 2016
"The fortnight has seen two hot off the press articles by a group from the Basque Country. They are challenging the existing paradigm in the investigation and management of febrile infants with their “Step by step” approach. The approach questions the relative supremacy of the Rochester criteria as a basis for investigating and managing infants under 90 days with fevers and controversially considers managing a subset of “low risk” infants on the outpatient basis without lumbar puncture or antibiotics."
“Step by Step” – the new kid on the block – aims to risk stratify this group to both reduce the number of unnecessary investigations and treatments in this group as well as predict those patients at risk of serious bacterial infections (SBI). The Step by Step approach was first suggested by the same group in 2014.
