This re-analysis by the authors
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23496872
and the associated discussion by Myburgh & Finfer
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23497460
of the FEAST data is most interesting and refutes some of the previously cited limitations of the study.
I’ve discussed it here:
http://www.emergucate.com/the-feast-study/

Perhaps it might be good to do an update podcast on the topic?

CG47 has been replaced by CG160. Dr Tessa Davis gives a great summary on LITFL, here:
http://lifeinthefastlane.com/2013/05/nice-fever-guidelines-for-kids/
The full NICE CG160 (Feverish Illness in Children) can be found here:
http://guidance.nice.org.uk/CG160
Despite the lack of rigorous evidence out there, the NICE guideline is a good concensus on how to risk stratify kids with Fever Without Source (FWS).

This talk is a severely contracted version of a longer talk with the same title – for the purposes of the SMACC conference I had to fit it into the Pecha Kucha medium: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide. An interesting challenge which left me unable to expand on any concepts!

Really the papers added next to nothing to eminence based practice.
I had a 13yr old in today with worst ever headache, vomited ten times, looked pale and shitty, all over headache, no phono/photophobia.
As you did mention, it’s these grey cases we need help in.
What’s needed?
Well, a decision rule study, that’s what. A bit of recursive partitioning never did anyone Any harm.

Also, A bit more about your lit search and a bit more structured critical appraisal.
