Paediatric Emergency services
It is natural for children to fall ill or to sustain injuries from falls when they are playing. However, when the illness or fall is a threat to their safety, they need skilled emergency care to save their life.
A paediatric emergency is hence defined as a serious condition that threatens the life of an infant, child, teen, or young adult, who may then require immediate medical attention.
The most common of paediatric emergencies are acute medical problems, such as persistent high fever causing febrile seizures or convulsions, dehydration, severe allergic reactions, choking or breathing difficulties, and other major injuries, such as fractures, head injuries, injuries from road accidents and so on.
