This post is simply a link to the lecture and slides of Situational Awareness [And Early Detection Of] Clinical Deterioration from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The lecture and slides are okay but I don’t think they are worth reviewing. They are really just a discussion of Rapid Response Teams.
It is the additional resources below about how to recognize pediatric clinical deterioration at the earliest possible time which are most valuable and I’ve made a separate post about them.
There are links in Additional Resources to more about the above topic.
Here is the link to The Clinical Pathways Library [a comprehensive list of the clinical pathways at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)].
For a complete list of the outstanding pediatric FOAM courses from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, please see CHOP Open-access Medical Education.
