Health Watch — Infection: Finding the Source
Health Watch is a Public Service of the Office of News and Publications and is intended to provide general information only and should not replace the advice of a medical professional. You should contact your physician if you have questions about any of these topics.
Dr. Octavio Ramilo, a pediatrician at UT Southwestern Medical Center, says when children come to the emergency room with a fever, it’s important to know which ones can be sent home and which should be admitted to the intensive care unit and treated with antibiotics.
Next: A new test that may be able to help doctors make that call.
Health Watch is heard Monday through Friday nationwide on ABC Satellite Radio. Call your local radio station and ask if they carry the program.
