Quiz: Recognizing and treating pediatric trauma

Pediatric patients are not tiny adults; refresh your knowledge of pediatric blunt trauma and take a quiz to check your knowledge


Emergency calls involving children are difficult, as many clinicians do not have the same confidence when treating pediatric patients as they do adults. However, with unintentional injury as the leading cause of death and disability among children, it's critical that providers are trained and ready to respond. 

A recent article from Limmer Education's Chis Ebright, "Back to the basics: Pediatric trauma," discussed signs of blunt force trauma in pediatric patients, as well as how providers should approach and treat such injuries. 

Read Ebright's article and check your knowledge with the quiz below. Be sure to leave your score in the comments and see how you stack up against others.
