A Seizing Infant
After this activity, the team will be able to manage a seizing pediatric patient with emphasis on the following objectives:
1. Apply Crisis Resource Management and teamwork in the care of a patient with a seizure (with attention to role designation, directed orders, sharing mental model and closed loop communication with team and family members).
2. Prioritize treatment of potential etiologies to guide stabilization or escalation of care for a patient with a seizure.
3. Determine the appropriate destination for transfer.
You can either use the YouTube Video or the Interactive Vimeo Video.
The video includes frames of an animated patient next to a monitor with vital signs that change based on the patient's clinical condition. There is also a prerecorded, narrated prebrief, dispatch, and debrief that you can use to help faciliatate the simulation.
