Pediatric Respiratory Cases-Session 1-February 2nd 0900-1000 Hours

This session will cover one of those types of calls that strikes fear into every provider’s heart: the sick pediatric patient. We will cover one of the various forms of respiratory emergencies afflicting our pediatric population and then formulate different treatment strategies for them. These patients are scary because they can compensate tremendously well and for a long period of time before they suddenly decompensate and get very sick, very fast.
