Areas of Focus
Cardiovascular Changes in Pediatric Trauma
CIPT Scholar Dr. Alison Gardner's
research found that a large percentage of children with shock have
sustained isolated head injuries, and that this is more common in
younger children. This could help shift the paradigm for treatment of
shock in young children with head injuries.
Golden Hour Fund
The "golden hour" is the
time following a traumatic injury when prompt medical treatment has the
highest likelihood to prevent death. Our goal is to raise $100,000
before the end of 2012 to fund Pediatric International Trauma Life
Support and Critical Care Support trainings.
Pediatric Trauma Conference
Clinicians received CME credits for attending the 3rd Annual Brenner Children's Hospital Pediatric Trauma
Conference hosted by CIPT on October 17. We plan to continue providing
CME credit specific to pediatric trauma education. View videos of the conference on YouTube.
