Pediatric Emergency Medicine

Department Main Image

Overview

With about 100,000 patient visits a year, we have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of emergencies in infants, children, teens and young adults. We're familiar with the vast differences in children's anatomy, injuries and illnesses, and are able to provide treatment that meets their unique medical needs.

We have one focus: kids.

Our experienced team of pediatric board-certified doctors, nurses, technicians and child life specialists have special training and knowledge in pediatric emergency medicine. We understand children have different muscular, skeletal, vascular and neurological systems from adults, and they're at higher risk for head injuries and blood loss. We also understand even their symptoms are different. For instance, children can maintain normal blood pressure even when they're in critical condition.

Our training and experience have not only taught us how to deal with pediatric medical emergencies, but also how to:

  • Provide treatment that meets the unique medical needs of infants, children, teens, and young adults. This includes giving medications and using special equipment in specific ways.
  • Detect problems in children who are unable to be patient and cooperative.
  • Ease the pain and anxiety that a medical emergency can cause families.
