Approach to the Pediatric Trauma Patient held at Children’s Hospital

On Thursday June 28th, 2012, pediatric residents at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC participated in the Approach to the Pediatric Trauma Patient course.  This course is given on a yearly basis to graduating 1st year pediatric residents before they begin caring for trauma patients in the pediatric emergency department. It addresses a pediatric specific approach to assessment and management of pediatric trauma patients. It includes a self-study online module followed by four simulated patient scenarios managed by residents in groups of 3-4.

The residents rotated through four separate patient rooms each containing a Laerdal high-fidelity human patient simulator.  Available simulators for the pediatric residents to train on were SimBaby, SimJunior, SimMan and SimMan 3G.
