We are proud to be a part of the incredible history of EMS. We share many of their goals, while focusing our efforts on the safety and well-being of the children in emergency situations. With that in mind, we have created several resources to aid EMS providers who encounter children in their work.
We want to get tools into the hands of EMS providers to help them better communicate with children and help them remain calm, even in a high stress situation.
Pediatric surge is unique due to the specialized equipment and resources needed for pediatric patients. MDH has identified the need for more pediatric education, training, and a Minnesota Pediatric Surge Plan to ensure our state is capable of responding to a statewide pediatric surge disaster.
