Pediatric Trauma: Everyone's Worst Nightmare

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Trauma (JEMS)

Pediatric traumas are some of the most dreaded calls we can receive. Regardless of licensure level, experience, or familiarity with kids, it’s difficult to be comfortable treating an injured child. We know in medical scenarios that children are not just small adults, and the same rings true in trauma. This class will focus on recognition of injuries based on size, weight, and mechanism as well management techniques for those injuries and factors.
