Pediatric Patients on the Edge

City Hall, Rockland, ME


Hands-on practice for low volume, high risk patients. This intensive full day conference combines classroom lecture with hands-on training using the newest patient simulation technology. The conference will focus on pre-hospital assessment and management of critically ill or injured children. Topics covered will include: recognizing respiratory failure and shock in children; rapid assessment and management of the ABCs; fluid support; cardiac emergencies; sepsis, recognizing abuse; and trauma.

The curriculum for the September 8 conference is geared toward paramedics, but is also open to Advanced EMTs on a space-available basis. Faculty for the program are LifeFlight medical crew.

The cost of the program, which runs from 8am to 4:30pm, is $35 thanks to generous grant funding from The Betterment Fund, Maine Health Access Foundation, United Mid Coast Charities, Camden National Bank, Affiliated Healthcare Systems and Kiwanis Clubs of Rockland, Dover-Foxcroft, Dexter, Milo and Orono/Old Town.
