Emergency Medical Minute collaborated with CarePoint Health in early March for a night of education on Pediatric Emergencies geared towards mid-level providers at a local Denver brewery for our latest Brewcast. Pediatric patients require special considerations compared to adults when receiving medical care, and that remains true when dealing with respiratory illnesses across different age ranges.
Dr. Parisa Jamshidi, Pediatric Emergency Physician, reviews common respiratory illnesses including bronchiolitis, croup and bacterial tracheitis in pediatric patients covering their presentation on exam and via diagnostics, treatment plans and special considerations. Her lecture is complete with a case review of a patient presenting with croup and its management, differentiation of airway sounds and high flow oxygen delivery recommendations. Listen to brush up on on your knowledge of pediatric respiratory emergencies.
