A useful 'nice to know' fast fact. Something to bear in mind during reflection on, or even during the history taking of teenage patients?

Remember the Red Book

The Red Book is a useful document to take to hospital with a child and their parent(s) (Newell & Darling, 2014: 9).

What red flags need to be looked out for in a child?

According to Bruga et al (2013), the red flags to look out for range from those which directly concern a child's vital signs to states such as 'seizures', rashes and 'haemorrhage' (Bruga et al, 2013: 12). For the full list, please see the image below.
