Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Children comprise approximately one-quarter of all visits to most emergency departments. Children are generally healthier than adults, yet there are similar priorities in assessment and management of pediatric patients. The initial approach to airway, breathing, and circulation still applies and is first and foremost in the evaluation of young infants and children. There are certain anatomic, physiologic, developmental, and social considerations that are unique to this population and must be taken into account during their evaluation and treatment. In this review, we present and discuss an evidence-based approach to high-yield procedures necessary for all emergency physicians taking care of children.
