Resuscitation of the pediatric trauma patient involves immediate assessment of ABCs. Interventions are made immediately upon recognition of abnormalities during the primary survey. After initial assessment and management of life-threatening processes, consider the optimal destination for further care and resuscitation. Keep in mind pediatric considerations like anatomical differences and the need for pediatric-sized equipment. Avoid the common errors that occur when resuscitating a pediatric trauma patient.
