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
Mark is a Paediatric Intensivist at Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, a consultant in Paediatric Critical Care Transport at ScotSTAR and a responder support clinician for BASICS Scotland. His interests include the management of critically unwell children anywhere.
