Pediatric Bipap for the EMT and paramedic. This course reviews respiratory emergencies for pediatric patients and the application of BIPAP. Deployment of CPAP and BIPAP in EMS has evolved over the last decade and is arguably the first-line intervention for acute respiratory distress for multiple adult populations. Despite these advances, we have left children behind for no reason. Pediatric patients are well known for their ability to compensate until the respiratory arrest, without a declining period, we often miss opportunities to intervene and alter patient outcomes.
- Review airway anatomy of pediatric patients
- Discuss BIPAP anatomy and mechanics
- Indications and contraindications of BIPAP
- Alarms and settings
