I am a new RN, working in an ER... Looking for people to share any tricks they use for treating/assessing pediatric patients in any area. I am hoping this will be a wonderful thread so that we can all share ideas to help us in treating our littlest patients.
For example: Sometimes I find I have to put an IV in an AC on a kiddo, this is especially troublesome in infants and neonates since they prefer to be flexed. I use arm boards, but sometimes still find myself in an endless fight with a beeping IV pump and an arm that just wants to bend.... Anyone else doing something that works for such cases??
Alright everyone, share your pediatric wisdom here!!
