Prehospital Pediatric Problems: A systematic assessment for children and infants.
Everyone wants to be ready to manage the scene of a pediatric emergency with confidence, care, and compassion, but things don’t always go that way. Emotions can run high for patients, parents, bystanders and yes, even emergency responders. Because of this, providers often miss the simple steps that can make an important difference in our care.
