Pediatric and Neonatal Transport Considerations for the Emergency Nurse Webinar
Children are not small adults, and neonates are not small children. A knowledge of developmental and physiological differences is essential when providing stabilization and facilitating inter-facility transport for the pediatric patient. This session will provide an overview of concepts important in the care of pediatric patients and illuminate how emergency nurses can assist in optimizing the transfer process.
