Objectives:
At the completion of this session, the student will be able to:
1) List five factors that influence stress reactions.
2) Describe "fight or flight" physiology.
3) List three symptoms of a stress reaction.
4) Describe three ways to manage stress.

Pediatric Respiratory Distress

Suggested CE First Responder EMT-B EMT-I/P
State 1 hr OB and Pediatric 1 hr OB and Pediatric 1 hr OB and Pediatric
National
Registry
1 hr Childbirth and Children 1 hr OB, Infants and Children 1 hr Obstetrics and Pediatrics


Overview:
The majority of childhood medical emergencies involve respiratory problems. Respiratory illness is the leading cause of cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children. The prognosis for cardiopulmonary arrest in children is dismal. However, if respiratory distress is identified and treated quickly and efficiently before respiratory failure and cardiac arrest ensue, the prognosis for neurologically intact survivability is high. Early recognition and treatment are critical for good outcomes of the pediatric patient in respiratory distress.

Objectives:
At the completion of this session, the student will be able to:
1) Identify signs and symptoms of croup.
2) List the treatments for upper airway infections.
3) Describe appropriate asthma ventilation techniques.
4) Define respiratory distress, respiratory failure, and respiratory compromise.
