The student will be asked to participate as team leader and team member in the skills stations. Puberty and adolescence: If the lone rescuer has a cell phone. When a lone rescuer finds an infant or child up to the age of puberty who is the victim of an unwitnessed collapse.
In an out-of-hospital arrest. When a lone rescuer finds an infant or child up to the age of puberty who is the victim of a witnessed collapse. When a lone rescuer finds an adolescent puberty and older who is the victim of a witnessed or unwitnessed collapse.
If resuscitation is required. If the lone rescuer has a working cell phone. When others are nearby. Page 8 of Rapidly evaluate and intervene using the PALS initial assessment sequence: Begin the primary and secondary assessments using the Evaluate-Identify-Intervene sequence if the child is breathing.
Is the child awake and alert.
This initial assessment will guide the next steps of the PALS sequence. At all times. Normal blood pressures by age range are: The clinician must be aware of normal respiratory ranges by age: The normal heart rates by age are: During the primary assessment.
Page 14 of When conducting the history. The physical exam should be focused on the specific symptoms the child is having. PALS interventions to consider should include: A physician usually leads the team. Team members must only do tasks as identified by their scope of practice. There are certain expectations and actions associated with them for members of the team: Each team member must be able to: The team leader must be able to: This may be evidenced by: If the intervention is not done early and aggressively.
As a respiratory problem develops due to disease. Treat the underlying cause as appropriate and restore normal ventilation while increasing the delivery of oxygen Any of a number of respiratory diseases e. Congenital defects: Correct the defect.
In the Evaluate-Identify-Intervene sequence. Clinical Signs Airway patency Respiratory rate and effort Breath sounds Air movement Heart rate Skin color and temperature Level of consciousness Core temperature Upper Airway Lower Airway Lung Disease Disordered Control Obstruction Obstruction of Breathing Maintainable in respiratory distress not maintainable in respiratory failure Initially increased in respiratory distress but will quickly Variable decompensate to bradypnea and apnea in respiratory failure Stridor.
Normal hoarseness expiratory wheezing diminished breath sounds.. Some of these conditions can be treated: Provide oxygen Overdose. Signs and Symptoms Treatment Increased arterial carbon dioxide Diminished level of consciousness late sign Increase ventilatory rate Tachypnea.
Upper airway obstruction. Increase oxygen and consider an advanced airway with PEEP. There are certain conditions that can cause hypoxemia. Respiratory problems can be categorized as upper airway obstruction. Trendelenburg position. Use the Evaluate-Identify-Intervene cycle to determine the cause of the respiratory distress. Lung and Blood Institute: Asthma is typically classified as mild.
If the bag has a pop-off valve. Although intubation is often considered the best treatment for a compromised child. Oxygen should be running to the bag at all times. Open the airway and provide ventilations according to BLS standards. Too much ventilation can cause the abdomen to distend leading to compromised lung filling.
A weight-based system should be available to facilitate accurate selections in a code situation. Inadequate preload results in hypovolemic shock. Pediatric patients have very small stroke volume. The types of shock are defined by disruptions in these required elements: The child with a normal blood pressure but poor perfusion is in compensated shock.
There are several compensatory mechanisms that include: In order to ensure adequate oxygen delivery. Page 26 of Be aware that shock CAN be present even when the blood pressure is normal. Stroke volume based on preload. In compensated shock. Decreasing level of consciousness.
As the child decompensates. The first step in this process is to recognize the type of shock and appropriate treatment: During this hour. The institution should have ageand size-appropriate equipment in an intensive care setting. Consider albuterol or antihistamines.
Page 30 of Consider a vasopressor.
Administer packed red blood cells for extreme blood loss. Epinephrine bolus followed by infusion. Observe for fluid overload. Consider anticoagulants or thrombolytics.
Consider colloid infusion if crystalloids are not effective. It is important to administer fluid resuscitation in shock with extreme caution. Using these treatments presumes it is done within facilities that have the equipment and personnel available to treat any secondary effects of IV fluid boluses.
Other conditions leading to cardiogenic shock: Consult cardiology. Cardiac tamponade: Infuse pressors. Cardiogenic Shock Treatment: Administer dopamine.
Hypovolemic Shock Treatment: Stop external bleeding. Distributive Shock Treatment: Tension Pneumothorax: Needle decompression or thoracostomy. Obstructive Shock Treatment: IV outflow: Administer prostaglandin E. Patients should be monitored for signs of fluid overload or cardiovascular deterioration.
If a person fails to achieve IO access after breaking the skin. Universal precautions Identify the insertion site Disinfect the skin Do not establish IO access in a bone that is fractured. Use an IO needle with stylet if available Insert the needle perpendicular to skin using twisting motion Stop pressing when decrease in resistance is felt Remove stylet Attach syringe Aspirate to confirm placement aspirated blood may be used for lab exams Infuse saline Support the needle and tape the IO in place Attach the IV and tape tubing to skin Flush with saline after each drug FIGURE Possible sites for an IO port include the proximal or distal tibia.
After inserting the IO catheter. If CPR is indicated. Bradycardia is often the cause of hypoxemia and respiratory failure in infants and children. Supportive care administer antidote if one is available Trauma: Increase oxygen and ventilation and avoid increased intracranial pressure by treating bradycardia aggressively in cases of head trauma. Secondary bradycardia results from non-cardiac issues including low blood pressure. These children must be evaluated by a pediatric cardiologist.
The exception to this is when a child has primary bradycardia caused by congenital or structural conditions such as congenital abnormalities. Administer oxygen Acidosis: Treated with increased ventilation and use sodium bicarbonate carefully if needed Hyperkalemia: Restore normal potassium level Hypothermia: Re-warm slowly to avoid over-heating Heart block: Consult pediatric cardiologist for possible administration of atropine. Page 32 of See Unit 2 for normal heart rate ranges for pediatric patients.
In the pediatric population. Sinus tachycardia ST is a narrow complex tachycardia that is not a dysrhythmia. P waves normal. Supraventricular tachycardia SVT may be wide or narrow complex. R-R interval may be variable Normal Normal Cool and pale SVT Sudden often with palpitations VT Sudden but uncommon in children unless associated with an underlying condition Not affected Faster than normal often with rales and wheezes.
As in adults. PR interval constant. P waves may not be present or seen. VT is not very common in children and infants. P waves absent or abnormal. Apply pads Turn the defibrillator to synchronized mode Dial the appropriate electrical dose Charge the machine Ensure that rescuers are not touching the patient or bed Deliver the shock by pressing the button s If not resolved.
For an infant. Synchronized cardioversion: If the cardiac monitor has a synchronization mode. Page 36 of Carotid massage may be done on older children.

Came as expected. Part 5 "Effective Resuscitation Team Dynamics" was missing from my book and the place it should have been had pages from part 4 "Cardiac Arrest". Verified Purchase.
The writing and organization of the newest edition has improved, but it also introduced numerous errors. The alternate formula for calculating maintenance IV fluid rate in the same chapter is also incorrect. Highly recommend.
One person found this helpful. Helpful for the PALS certification. The removable insert with the algorithms is a life saver. This manual is user-friendly and easy to read, but bought it from a local store.
The one purchase through Amazon was untouchable, as you can see from the pictures, in very poor condition. The book came in ok condition but it did not come with the pamphlet, stickers, or reference guide that I paid for.
Got screwed there. Great information. Great price compared to anywhere else. I bought this book because I work in the medical felid. It is the current book for AHA pediatric patients.
There is a set of tabs to make it easy to find section, as well as a CD on the book. Great read and buy. See all 72 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
