Paediatric Constipation

Constipation in kids is a common and potentially difficult problem.

Consistency (hhehhehehe) is the key to management!

I have asked a few Peds poo gurus how they approach the kids with a bott chocked full o rocks!

Here’e the podcast:

I did forget to ask Dr Liz (a Paeds gastro trainee) if she ever uses PR meds – and the answer was:  No, not really.  She has done it on a few rare occasions which were really extreme cases.

So I think the rule should be not to do a PR or use PR meds on kids – it is uncomfortable and can crete tense standoffs in the future!
