Pediatric Trauma . . . . . . Our Major Focus To develop local projects, which will reduce the number of children in our District who are killed or injured by trauma.
First, the good news . . . From 1987 – 2004 the unintentional injury death rate among children ages 14 and under has dropped by 43% Safe Kids USA
And now, the bad news . . . • Unintentional injury remains the #1 killer of children age 14 and under in the U.S. • Unintentional injury kills more kids every year than any other cause – including disease, homicide and suicide!
Injuries are No Accident Injuries are not inevitable; they are preventable.

Kiwanis Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship Program “The Kiwanis Doctor”
What is PediatricEmergency Medicine? • Developed in 1992 • 1,446 PEM physicians (as of 2008) • One qualified PEM physician for every 22,000 children visiting the ER!
PEM Physicians . . . • Specialize in the care of acutely ill or injured children and teens • Treat a range of medical emergencies that require immediate attention and are often life threatening • Meet the unique medical needs of children • Diagnose problems in distressed, uncooperative children
Why is This Important? • One third of the approximately 99 million annual ER visits is for a child • Many not receiving appropriate or timely care due to staff’s lack of pediatric training • Babies and children are not “little people” - needs are vastly different than an adult’s
