Pediatric Burn Care: Trauma

Pittsburgh, PA US
August 9, 2021

 

This course will review how to care for burn patients at CHP. The majority of our pediatric burn patients are sent to Mercy unless they require extracorporeal membrane exchange (ECMO). When this happens, Mercy sends their specially trained staff over to care for the burns. Since this is a high risk low volume patient population, our intensive care nurses will be better able to comprehend and understand the care provided to our burn patients.

Target Audience

  1. describe and care for pediatric burn patients.
