The tripledemic of Covid, flu, and RSV is causing a critical surge of pediatric respiratory illness that requires emergency care. Overall, 80% of pediatric patients are seen in a general ED rather than a children’s hospital. The strain is especially great in rural areas where access to pediatric specialists may be extremely limited. It is therefore imperative that all EDs have the appropriate resources and capable staff to provide effective emergency care for children. Most general EDs do not see enough critically ill children to be confident in their policies, procedures, and equipment. 

Recognizing the urgent need among caregivers for a refresher on pediatric respiratory emergency response, Tegria, a healthcare technology, and services company, is hosting a free, 45-minute LinkedIn Live session to provide immediate, quick wins to improve pediatric emergency readiness.
