The new Pediatric Airway Management 24-7 EMS training course is available now!

Low volumes of pediatric patients and lack of experience make sick children some of the most anxiety-provoking patients for EMS responders. This course provides an overview of pediatric respiratory anatomy and physiology, emphasizes the importance of Basic Life Support (BLS) airway support and management, demonstrates how to differentiate among the most common airway problems, and uses clinical experience to explain how common pediatric respiratory issues can be better assessed in the field. In addition, the course provides tools for EMS responders to properly assess even the most uncooperative and agitated young child.
