NAEMT's Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC) course focuses on the care of sick and injured children, addressing a full spectrum of emergency illnesses, injuries and scenarios that an EMS practitioner might encounter. EPC is different from any other EMS continuing education course in that it provides an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiology of the most common pediatric emergency issues, and stresses critical thinking skills to help practitioners make the best decisions for their patients.
EPC provides a unique approach to pediatric emergency care, using the Pediatric Assessment Triangle (PAT) to help determine "How sick? How quick?" The course helps EMS practitioners rapidly and accurately assess pediatric patients to determine which situations may be life threatening and require immediate intervention, while also addressing more common but less serious complaints. In addition to providing current knowledge and training in proper treatment modalities, the course incorporates family centered care throughout all scenarios.
