Paediatric Emergencies

In this podcast I will focus on the management of the critically ill child who needs intensive care and provide an approach to managing them till care is taken over by the PICU team.



This episode covers the management of a child presenting to the Emergency Department with Meningococcal Septicaemia who needs intensive care support. Dr Christopher Flannigan, a Paediatric Intensivist from the United Kingdom, provides advice on resuscitation and stabilisation of the child prior to care being taken over by the paediatric intensive care team. This podcast is part of the ‘Waiting for the Paediatric Retrieval Team’ series and the accompanying book chapter can be viewed by clicking on the link.
