Re: Corticosteroids for sore throat: a clinical practice guideline
Can I question the dose of dexamethasone for children? 0.6mg/kg seems like a very large dose, since any child over 17kg would be given a dose higher than the adult dose. The dose for croup is much lower than this. Please can the authors confirm that this is the correct dose.
