National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This instructor's lesson plan guide on pediatrics and neonatal transport is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Five units of study are presented: (1) approach to the pediatric patient including patient assessment; (2) pathophysiology and management of problems unique to the pediatric age group including respiratory problems, the sudden infant death syndrome, seizures, and the battered child; (3) techniques of management for cardiopulmonary resuscitation, endotracheal intubation, and initiating intravenous therapy on a pediatric patient; (4) neonatal transport; and (5) clinical experience in the pediatric unit. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outline, lists of needed equipment and materials, and guidelines for student practice activities. Check sheets are provided for evaluating student skills. (It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students. CE 017 514 is a course guide for use in planning and implementing the total training program.) (JH)
