Monday Spoon Feed:

This single center RCT found no difference in maximum Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score between critically ill adult ED patients receiving ketamine vs etomidate for rapid sequence intubation (RSI).

Thursday Spoon Feed:

Procalcitonin (PCT) is suppressed in young febrile infants in the presence of confirmed viral infection (CVI), which lowers its sensitivity to detect bacterial infection (BI).  Infants meeting the AAP cutoff of 0.5 ng/mL, even in the presence of CVI, should undergo full diagnostic workup for BI.
