EMS education

Public·19 members

One patient most providers do not see often are pediatrics, or children. If it has been a while and depending on the program you attended pediatrics or kids wasn't a major part of the program. Most medics get a bit nervous with kid calls, just because we do not see that many. The leading cause of death is drowning, this doesn't have to be in a lake or large body of water but in a pool or bathtub. The next leading cause of trauma for kids between 5-19 years of age is an MVA involvement. In Kenya to many time I see little kids bouncing around in the car which tells me they are not properly secured. Here is an article from EMS 1 and a good read. Look into a good pediatric course or at least read web based articles or listen to podcast to help be as currant as you can when it comes to kids.
