I have done several lectures on Pediatric Trauma and, IMHO, an area that I
do not see covered often is the Decompensation Curve in the pediatric shock pt.
I discuss the rapid decompensation of the pediatric pt. in relation to why
we consider some pediatric pt.s "unstable" by mechanism of injury alone.
(The 'Rather Safe Than Sorry' principle)
Other areas I've not seen covered well are pediatric immobilization and
pediatric ventilation with a BVM (vent 'til chest rise).
