Rank #10: Episode 2 - Pediatric Resuscitation Featuring Dr. Peter Antevy
Today’s show will focus on the evolution in the EMS approach to pediatric resuscitations. Historically these high stress resuscitations focused on rapid transport of these children to the hospital and have resulted in sub par resuscitation efforts and increased stress for both providers and families. There is mounting evidence that mirrors the adult resuscitation data that staying on scene and providing focused resuscitation efforts improves outcomes in these patients. Dr. Antevy provides a unique perspective as both a pediatric EM specialist/EMS medical director and inventor of the Handtevy pediatric resuscitation system.
