What I learnt this week: Is your powerpoint slide teaching or are you? #WILTW

A while ago I attended a workshop led by Carl May. He was talking to a research group I’m part of which is investigating Early Warning Systems for children. As a means of demonstrating the challenge of innovation becoming established in health services he discussed how teaching has changed since the advent of powerpoint. He made a brilliant observation that it is sometimes difficult to know if education is being delivered by the lecturer, or by the slides they are using.

Typically, if an infant or young child presents to the ED with concern for intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), CT is performed as a rapid diagnostic tool. Now that clinicians are more aware of the radiation associated with head CT, the possible use of ultrasound was studied. Ultrasound is commonly used in the neonatal population for detecting ICH. A study by Elkhunovich et al looked at children younger than 2 years who had cranial ultrasounds preformed. Over a 5 year period, 283 ultrasounds were done on patients between 0 to 485 days old (median 33 days). There were 39 bleeds detected. Ultrasound specificity and sensitivity was calculated by comparing the results with CT, MRI and/or clinical outcome. For significant bleeds, the sensitivity for ultrasound was 81%. The specificity for detecting ICH was 97%.
