These simulations will involve:
Recognition of common pediatric cardiac ECG rhythms
Effective airway management and use of adjuncts
Knowledge of pediatric cardiopulmonary pharmacology
Practical management of complex cases
High-performance team skills
Each student should have a basic understanding of the following:
