Great review of an often difficult ER entity. I love the written PEARLS page that breaks down the talks.

Just wanted to let you guys at EM:RAP know how much myself and fellow EM residents at Virginia Tech Carilion LOVE the C-3 project. Keep it going!

A great discussion and run through on abdo pain in kids. Thank you!
Although there may be many obscure causes of abdo pain in kids, another I have seen a couple of time is FPIES.
Which is food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (
Perhaps becoming more common now that hypersensitivities are increasing!

Worth considering for the next time you see a floppy, pale baby with "gastro".

Not every hospital has a pediatric surgeon. Pediatric hospitalists in hospitals without Peds surgeons do not want to admit concerning abdominal pain with, so far, negative work up. Peds surgeons in tertiary hospitals do not want transfers of such patients without a diagnosis.They will argue with their own Peds hospitalists. As the saying goes," The ED doc is nobody's friend".
