Pediatrics Part 1 – Assessment

EMS first responders will run on far less Pediatric patients compared to Adults during their career. Because of this, it can be difficult to remember that children are not just small adults, but require slightly different assessment and treatment protocols. In this episode, Chris and Jason discuss an easy to use systematic approach to the assessment of the Pediatric patient. Pulling from guidelines such as PEPP, PALS, and PEARS, this simple approach should give you confidence in your ability to identify children who need immediate intervention and those who can wait for further work-up at the hospital.
