Pediatric Burn Care: Trauma
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.
Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
- describe and care for pediatric burn patients.
- apply knowledge learned through this CE to bedside care provided to this unique and specific patient population.
