  2. Emergencies involving pediatric patients account for 10 % to 20 % of all EMS responses.

  3. Here are the Pediatrics age classifications.

  4. Neonate: Birth to 1 monthYoung infant: 1 to 5 monthsInfant: 6 to 12 monthsToddler: 1 to 3 yearsPreschool: 3 to 5 yearsSchool age: 6 to 12 yearsAdolescent: 12 to 15 years

  5. Here are some of the most common emergencies for pediatric per age group.

  6. Neonate:* Respiratory distress* Sepsis and meningitis* Jaundice*Vomiting* Fever

  7. 1 to 5 month (young infant)* Respiratory distress* Fever*Sudden infant death syndrome ( SIDS )* Vomiting and diarrhea with dehydration

  8. * Meningitis and * Child abuse

  9. 6 to 12 month ( infant)* Fever febrile seizures* Vomiting and diarrhea with dehydration*Bronchiolitis* Croup* Meningitis

  10. *Respiratory distress ( bronchiolitis, foreign body aspiration, croup)* Child abuse*Ingestion's* Falls*Injuries from MVA’s

  11. 1 to 3 years (Toddle)*Fever, febrile seizure*Vomiting and diarrhea with dehydration*Respiratory distress*Meningitis*Child abuse

  12. *Foreign body airway obstruction*Falls * Injuries for MVA’s

  13. 3 to 5 years (preschool) *Fever, febrile seizure*Vomiting and diarrhea with dehydration*Respiratory distress*Meningitis*Child abuse

  14. *Ingestion's* foreign body airway obstruction* Falls*Injuries for MVA’s

  15. 3 to 5 years (preschool)* Croup * Asthma* Epiglottis* Febrile seizures* Meningitis* Burns

  16. *Drowning, near drowning* Child abuse* Injuries from MVA’s

  17. 6 to 12 years ( school age)*Drowning* Injuries from MVA’s* Injuries from bicycle- vehicle crashes*Fractures*Sports injuries* Child abuse* Burns

  18. 12 to 15 years (adolescent)*Asthma* Injuries from MVA’s* Sports injuries* Drug or alcohol*Suicide gestures* Sexual abuse* Pregnancy

  19. Her are some Key points to remember about PED’s

  20. Just a remember peds are treated just like adults except they are smaller. Some needs are different but the basis are the same. (ABC’s)

  21. Hypothermia and Hyperthermia can happen very fast with smaller PED’s. Do to they are unable to feel or tell the heat or cold very well.

  22. If they are with a high fever, then they may have a seizure. That is their way for fighting the fever.

  23. Dehydration can also happen very fast with the smaller pediatric patient.

  24. Be sure if they are crying to check to see if they have tears coming from there eyes, also see or check if they have been producing urine and how much


  26. Over half of patients requiring CPR are less than 1 year of ageWithin this age group, most are less than 4 months old

  27. Ventricular Fibrillation reportedly occurs in less than 10% of children in pulseless arrest. More likely in children with heart disease.

  28. Determine unresponsiveness or respiratory difficulty.

  29. If head or neck trauma is suspected, do not shake the child to avoid spinal injury.

  30. If the child is having respiratory distress it should be allowed to remain in the position he/she finds most comfortable in order to maintain patency of the partially obstructed airway.

  31. CALL FOR HELPPosition the victim on an hard surface maintain manual in line C spine if injury is suspected

  32. Open the airway with head-tilt or jaw thrust


  34. Infant less than 1 year make seal around mouth and nose at the same time.

  35. From ages 1-8 make seal around victims mouth and pinch the nose.

  36. Deliver two slow breaths 1-1 1/2 seconds per breath with a pause after the first breath.

  37. If the chest rises and air goes in check pulse. If air does not go in reposition the head and give 2 more breaths if it does not go in check for possible airway obstruction

  38. Also remember that if you tilt there smaller patents heads back to far this will also obstructed there airway.


  40. In children over the age of 1 the most accessible central artery is the carotid

  41. In infants less than 1 year of age, the most accessible is the brachial.

  42. If pulse is present but the patent is not breathing then ventilation for the patient at 20 per min.

  43. If the patient is not breathing and does not have a pulse then start CPR.

  44. For patients less than 1 year of age. Go down 1/3 the sternum and compress the chest 1/2 to 1 inch at a rate of 100 time per min. With the hand farthest away from the head and the index finger.

  45. With a child 1 to 8 years of age use the palm of the hand farthest away from the head. Compress the chest 1 to 1 1/2 inch at a rate of 100 per min.

  46. Compress the sternum approximately 1 to 1 1/2 inches . At a rate of 80 per minute.

  47. If the 8 year old is big or large or older, then CPR should be done as if they are an adult.

  48. Airway obstrucion

  49. Place the infant face down with his/her head lower than the trunk over the rescuer’s forearm.

  50. Using the palm of one hand deliver up to 5 back blows between the shoulder blades
