Her are some key points to remember about ped s l.jpg

Her are some Key points to remember about PED’s


Slide20 l.jpg

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)


Slide21 l.jpg

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.


If they are with a high fever then they may have a seizure that is their way for fighting the fever l.jpg

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


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

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


Slide24 l.jpg

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


The abcs of cpr l.jpg

THE ABCs OF CPR


Slide26 l.jpg

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


Slide27 l.jpg

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


Determine unresponsiveness or respiratory difficulty l.jpg

Determine unresponsiveness or respiratory difficulty.


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

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


Slide30 l.jpg

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.


Slide31 l.jpg

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


Open the airway with head tilt or jaw thrust l.jpg

Open the airway with head-tilt or jaw thrust

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

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


From ages 1 8 make seal around victims mouth and pinch the nose l.jpg

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


Deliver two slow breaths 1 1 1 2 seconds per breath with a pause after the first breath l.jpg

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


Slide37 l.jpg

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


Slide38 l.jpg

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


Circulation l.jpg

CIRCULATION


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

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


In infants less than 1 year of age the most accessible is the brachial l.jpg

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


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

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


If the patient is not breathing and does not have a pulse then start cpr l.jpg

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


Slide44 l.jpg

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.


Slide45 l.jpg

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.


Compress the sternum approximately 1 to 1 1 2 inches at a rate of 80 per minute l.jpg

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


If the 8 year old is big or large or older then cpr should be done as if they are an adult l.jpg

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


Airway obstrucion l.jpg

Place the infant face down with his her head lower than the trunk over the rescuer s forearm l.jpg

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


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

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


Slide51 l.jpg

Turn the infant over while supporting the head and deliver 5 chest thrust with 1 finger. Then check for a foreign body with a tongue-jaw lift


Slide52 l.jpg

Open the airway and attempt to ventilate. If the chest does not rise reposition the head and reattempt to ventilate


If airway remains obstructed repeat the back blows with chest thrust l.jpg

If airway remains obstructed repeat the back blows with chest thrust


Slide54 l.jpg

If the obstruction is removed assess breathing if present place patient on his/her side also make sure patient has a pulse


Slide55 l.jpg

If patient is with a pulse and is not breathing but airway is clear then breath for the patient 1 every 3 seconds


Slide56 l.jpg

The heimlich maneuver is done in a child and older, and with a standing patient or a patient lying down


Trauma l.jpg
