Wisconsin Emergency Medical Services for Children Conference

In 2010, a total of 423,128 Wisconsin children were cared for at an emergency department. Children have unique medical needs due to their size, physiology, anatomy, and emotional state compare to adults that require special consideration. In 2006, Institute of Medicine identified significant disparity in quality of care in large city tertiary care centers in contrast to community emergency departments, where the vast majority of children receive emergency care. The pediatric expertise of providers at these community facilities vary significantly and additional exposure to education on the care of the pediatric patient is needed. This conference will provide evidence-based updates for common and critical pediatric emergency problems through short focused didactic sessions. It also includes hands-on skills training using high fidelity simulation as well as emergency pediatric procedures training in airway management, vascular access, and chest compression.
