Children who require emergency care have unique needs, especially when emergencies are serious or life-threatening. Access to optimal emergency care for children is affected by the knowledge and skill level of the responding EMS personnel. This course is designed to educate EMS professionals on how to assess a pediatric patient in the field. Our one-day robust program includes both didactic lectures and hands-on skills stations. Didactic lectures topics such as neonatal emergencies, respiratory emergencies, transport and rig-ready tips and tools as it relates to the pediatric patient. Skills stations will compliment didactic lectures.
Target Audience: EMTs and Paramedics
