Mark talks us through the process of managing ROSC in the paediatric patient.

Top 3 Points from this podcast:
  • Do the basics well and use the ABCDE approach you would in the adult approach and  just tweak the equipment and maneuvers to suit
  • IO access may be very valuable in children where IV access can be more tricky to gain and think about the needle sizes
  • Phone a friend for top-down cover and discuss the pathway and help available
Resources:

EasyIO Intraosseous vascular access system
