this course was very informative and helped me understand that we cant always just clump certain signs together and assume its GERD we need to look at the bigger picture and take special note of all the information that is being given to us to help the patient / infant effectively and properly. it was great to see a list of red flags that we need to be aware of as many of those red flags can be perceived as common signs/sxs to reflux when they arent . throughout the entire course i have had the opportunity to get a better understanding on how reflux as a whole works as well as the effects it can have on an infant and most importantly on the parents/caregivers as well. it was a very informative and educational course that has broaden my knowledge.

Dr Mike Marinus has an impeccable ability of explaining infant GERD in such a way to help you to thoroughly explain it and educate the moms. This lecture not only gave me extensive new knowledge on infant GERD but it also gave me inspiration to go study paediatrics further in the UK.

I like the immediate focus on moms psych state. I think this is paramount in treating babies whatever the complaint. As you mentioned - its their perspective of troubling symptoms that start a mom off on a road to 'fixing' their baby.
