About

Paediatric Emergencies 2020 aims to improve the knowledge and skills of those involved in the initial care of the critically ill and injured child.

This will involve a series of talks on 5 June 2020 followed by the chance to put the knowledge gained into practice on 6 June 2020 when dealing with a number of simulated emergencies under the close observation of expert faculty.

Topics covered

The main event on 3 November covers topics such as difficult intubation, emergency front of neck access, difficult ventilation, cardiac arrest, collapsed neonate, metabolic emergencies, arrhythmias, coma, spotting the sick child, diabetic ketoacidosis, infectious diseases, symptomatic hyponatraemia, acute kidney injury and burns. 

The Paediatric Emergencies practical workshop on 4 November 2020 will offer participants the opportunity to work in small groups to manage a range of simulated paediatric emergencies under the close supervision of an expert faculty which includes experienced paediatric intensivists, paediatric emergency medicine physicians, paediatric anaesthetists and paediatricians. During the day there will be time for discussion and the opportunity to put your questions to the expert faculty.

Audience

All healthcare professionals involved in the initial resuscitation and stabilisation of the critically ill child including paediatric, emergency medicine and anaesthetic consultants, trainees and nurses.
