Paediatric Assessment: understanding children's physiological differences

The phrase ‘children are just tiny adults’ hold little truth and our assessment and management must consider these differences. Understanding how to perform a paediatric assessment & why different aspects are considered is vital for all nurses who encounter children in their clinical work.

When assessing children with respiratory distress, clinicians need to be reminded that babies and small children are a “work in progress” as far as lung function and physiology are concerned. In this session, we look at not just respiratory differences but touch on thermoregulation, cardiac and other physiological differences in a child’s development.

The purpose of this webinar is to ensure that nurses are aware of physiological differences between adults and children.

In this video learning activity, you will:

  • Gain an awareness of physiological differences in respiratory, cardiac and thermoregulation
  • Receive information about how children respond differently in shock to adults.
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of maintaining a warm, pink, sweet child
  • Acquire knowledge and tips for calculating critical tube numbers in children.

This learning activity is one hour in duration. 1 hour of active learning = 1 CPD hour
