KinderMedic is a one day program designed to improve confidence of paramedics when managing children as well as address some of the common knowledge gaps in pediatric education.
Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019
The program provides 7.5hours of instruction, comprised mainly of small group skill sessions followed by a number of high fidelity simulations to allow the learning to be applied and reinforced.
The program’s authors work exclusively in pediatric critical care transport. This means the course brings the perspective of a pediatric specialist that may differ from the adult EM and critical care background that predominates in the prehospital setting.
Attendees can expect to attend a series of mini lectures, skill stations and high fidelity simulation as detailed below.

– Perfusion & fluid basics
– Approach to newborn resuscitation
– Basic airway management
– Advanced airway management
– IV access
– IO access
– Team resuscitation
– Preemie Resuscitation
HIGH FIDELITY SIMULATION
