Below is a link to a simple pdf of our standardised paeds reference cards as carried in all of our emergency medical packs.

GSA-HEMS Paediatric Emergency Reference Cards

NB. The tracheal tube internal diameters (“ETT size”) are based on the fact that we only use cuffed tubes and we do not carry half-sizes in our prehospital packs, so our options are limited to 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0

These are also available along with the many other resources under our handily titled ‘Resources’ menu.

The drugs and doses given take a clinician rapidly through what’s required for RSI, analgesia, resuscitation, haemorrhage control and beyond for paediatric patients of a useful range of weights/ages so as to minimise absolutely the time from decision to treatment in the critical care environment.
