Summary:

Nothing is more frightening to parents, pre-hospital providers, and ED providers than a pediatric cardiac emergency. Infants and young children pose challenges because of their unique physiology, small size, and the infrequency of pediatric cardiac events. However, it is critically important for pre-hospital providers to be familiar and comfortable managing these patients.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education course is to provide pre-hospital providers the basic physiology of pediatric congenital heart disease, the pediatric basic life support and advanced cardiac life support algorithms, the proper way to defibrillate, and how to interpret dysrhythmias in children and infants. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Demonstrate the basic physiology of pediatric congenital heart disease
  • Recite the current pediatric basic life support and advanced cardia life support protocols
  • Identify the locations and use the proper techniques for IV access
  • Evaluate bradycardic and tachycardic pediatric dysrhythmias
  • Describe cyanotic and non-cyanotic congenital heart disease and congestive heart failure and plan management of each
