24-7 EMS Online: Pediatric Cardiac Arrest

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1130

Incidents of pediatric cardiac arrest (PCA) are among the most anxiety-provoking, high-stakes calls that EMS providers receive, and chances for patient survival are slim. Yet some agencies have greatly improved their PCA survival rate by reacting to pediatric calls with initial treatments similar to that for an adult cardiac arrest, and adopting best pre-arrival and on-scene practices that are easy to implement.

This course will review the common aspects of pediatric cardiac arrest, best practices for treating pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, how community outreach and education can impact patient survival, and the roles that provider mindset and self-care play in providing the best care for PCA patients.

Featuring Dr. Paul R. Banerjee, DO, Medical Director for Polk County (Fla.) Fire Rescue.
