MANAGEMENT OF PAEDIATRIC EMERGENCIES:

Let us first discuss why  the  children are more  prone to  come across emergency situations. 

Young children, because of  their intense activity, insatiable curiosity and immaturity have more accidents such  as scalds and  falls  and poisoning from medications or  households solution than do adult. Lead  poisoning fromingestion of  lead paint  is more common  in toddlers because of  their desire to bite on hard surface, such as  painted crib rails.

The causes and types  of  injury are closely related  to  the child's  level  of growth  and  development at the time of  accident. The prevention  of accident therefore requires an  understanding of this  important area. Therefore Parents and care givers must constantly  be alert  to the potential dangers that exist in  the environment which include Falls, suffocation; aspiration or swallowing of foreign materials, drowning, burns, poisoning motor vehicle accident,  injuries to the body, etc. Accident can  be  prevented  by  parents  to  a  great extends. It is your responsibility as nurse to educate the parents individually or  in groups about prevention of home accident.
