Abstract:
There are significant differences in resuscitation algorithms for children versus adults. We aimed to enhance confidence of our students in the assessment and management of sick children by developing a simple program with emphasis on Basic Airway management, CPR, and clinical assessment and treatment of children using the A/B/C/D/E system. The course consisted of three parts in small group sessions (10–15 students): BLS, basic Airway and Cardiac arrest management, lasting (1.5 h); DVD and serious illness scenarios on traditional mannequins (2h); Serious illness scenarios in the Simulation baby laboratory (0.5 h). All participants were given a pre course hand out. The course was led by qualified APLS instructors and student confidence was evaluated by a pre and post course questionnaire. Pre course 18.8% of the students would not feel confident to approach a situation with a sick child outside the hospital versus 3.2 % after the course. Three times more Students felt confident manageing a child outside the hospital. Confidence in assessing and managing common paediatric problems in hospital, increased by 22 %, with the greatest increase regarding children with respiratory and cardiac problems. 75% liked the mixture of lectures and practical sessions. Overall more than 80% felt they benefitted from all different parts of the course. Confidence to approach, assess and manage a sick child increased by an average of 18.5%. Medical students found the interactive resuscitation training useful. Formalized simulation and resuscitation training improved medical student confidence and equipped them for in and out-of -hospital paediatric management.
