Title: Continuum of comprehensive care from pediatrician’s office to critical care unit-strategies to conceptualize the hints to critical clinical course
Biography: Mohammed Naeem
The aim of this workshop was to prepare pediatric health care providers to effectively identify the high-risk patients at the point of care who are at high risk to require intensive care settings. Over the last decade, strategic planning in pediatric comprehensive managed care and medico-legal implications has resulted into increasing collaboration between the pediatrician’s office and the critical care units. Guidelines from professional and regulatory societies emphasize upon golden hour and early intensive management. There is a stronger emphasis that the health care providers should be vigilant to identify the pediatric patients with high risk of rapid progression of the disease process. The envisioned workshop provides an overview of simple clinical presentations that may potentially lead to a need for critical care setting. This workshop will target typical respiratory, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, genitourinary disorders as well as inborn errors of metabolism, infections, high risk behaviors and non-traumatic injuries.
