Pediatric Procedures Lab
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Performing emergency procedures on sick infants and children can be stressful and frustrating. In this hands-on lab, you will be given the opportunity to gain practice in a number of life-saving procedures. Intraosseous line placement, umbilical vein catheters, and pediatric chest tubes, to name a few. Advanced airway management techniques include needle cricothyrotomy and open surgical cricothyrotomy, along with some of the newer airway "toys" such as LMAs, Glidescopes and Storz airway viewers.
Limited to 40 registrants.
