About the Event
This course is designed to train physicians to assess and manage critically-ill children during the first hours in the emergency department. The main aim is to help the clinician detect an imminently toxic child and institute treatment without delay. The course consists of presentations, practical skills stations, and case-based discussions. The skills covered include assisted and mechanical ventilation, advanced airway, vascular access (intraosseous and central), and chemical/electrical cardioversion. The discussions entail pediatric trauma, neonatal and medical emergencies, and common Central Nervous System (CNS) problems. The course content is based on the previous APLS course. PALS course is included in this course and participants will also obtain their PALS certificate by completing this course.
