By the school age years, children are better able to communicate their needs and problems, but they should not be treated as simply small adults. Their bodies still function differently and they have different thought processes. Therefore, it is critical for nurses and other healthcare professionals to understand the concepts of normal growth and development so that they can deliver age-appropriate care to their patients.

After watching this program viewers should be able to:

ACUTE PEDIATRIC ASTHMA: THERAPEUTIC EVIDENCE AND CONTROVERSIES

By Jill M. Baren, MD, MBE, FACEP, FAAP

Asthma is one of the most common diseases of childhood, with a prevalence rate of 5.4%in the pediatric population, accounting for 17% of pediatric encounters in US emergency departments. Although there is no known cure for asthma, advances in scientific understanding of the disease's underlying mechanisms have produced treatment tools and management strategies that can improve the health of children with asthma. However, the variability in patient responses to asthma therapies makes a single treatment strategy particularly challenging. In this video, Dr. Jill Baren presents an evidence-based discussion about some of the controversies in the management of pediatric asthma, including the use of metered-dose inhalers versus nebulizers, levalbuterol versus albuterol, the role of ipratropium, and the use of inhaled corticosteroids in acute asthma. In addition, she reviews novel or uncommon therapeutic interventions, such as the use of bi-level positive airway pressure (BIPAP) and heliox therapy.

FEBRILE CHILD, THE

By Alfred Sacchetti, MD, MD

The vaccines for Haemophilus influenza type B and Streptococcal pneumoniae have saved countless lives and prevented many disabilities. But even with the success of these vaccines, and partly because of their success, the diagnosis and management of the febrile child is still a challenge. Healthcare providers need to be aware of how the differences between age groups affect their vulnerability and guide the diagnostic and therapeutic options. Today, while there are fewer cases of pneumonia and meningitis, occult urinary tract infections are on the rise. This is a timely program with practical information on a very serious problem.

SPORTS RELATED INJURIES IN CHILDREN: RECOGNITION AND MANAGEMENT

By Terry Adirim, MD

Approximately 30 million children in the United States participate in organized sports programs, and more than 30% will sustain a sports injury that is severe enough to warrant treatment by a physician or nurse. To effectively manage the care of children with sports injuries requires an appreciation of the physical and physiologic differences between children and adults that may cause children to be more vulnerable to injury. It also requires the ability to recognize the extent of the injury, when referral is indicated, and how quickly the young athlete can return to play. Such determinations are particularly important in a child who has suffered a head injury. Dr. Adirim reviews the sports that are most often associated with injuries, the types of injuries that are commonly sustained, and the steps that should be taken in evaluating an injured child athlete and making treatment recommendations. Injury prevention and identification of children at higher risk of injury are emphasized.
