)-- Medic CE, a Career Step company, is sponsoring a live, 1-hour webinar, “Super Sick Kids: The Surprising Truth about Pediatric Septic Shock” hosted by the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS). The free webinar, to be held on Wednesday, May 31, 2017, at 2 p.m. Eastern time, will be presented by Captain Rommie Duckworth, LP, a career fire captain as well as founder and director of the New England Center for Rescue and Emergency Medicine.
“Medic-CE is committed to providing they very best education to the EMS community—and that includes our series of free clinical continuing education webinars,” said Judson Smith, Medic-CE Vice President of Continuing Education. “We understand the need for continual learning and want to make it easy for providers to get the hours and education they need. This is our second clinical webinar of 2017, and we are excited to be featuring Captain Duckworth. We look forward to educating others on critical topics in the future.”
By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to recognize and assess pediatric victims of sepsis by identifying infection-related triggers for sepsis and septic shock as well as the key physiological indicators of pediatric sepsis. Attendees will also learn how to provide appropriate pre-hospital treatment and coordination with in-hospital staff as they are treating these patients.
“We are excited to have Medic-CE sponsor this webinar that will benefit the EMS community,” said AJ Heightman, JEMS Editor in Chief. “Fifty percent of pediatric patients who have sepsis will have it again within a year. Because of this, identifying it the first time could be lifesaving, but missing it the second time could be life ending.”
The webinar presentation will be held Wednesday, May 31, at 2 p.m. Eastern time. It is free to attend and open to EMS providers. As part of Medic-CE’s ongoing continuing education webinar series, this webcast has been approved for one continuing education unit provided by Medic-CE.
