Abstract

This statement provides current recommendations about the use of emergency drugs for acute pediatric problems that require pharmacologic intervention. At each clinical setting, physicians and other providers should evaluate drug, equipment, and training needs. The information provided here is not all-inclusive and is not intended to be appropriate to every health care setting. When possible, dosage recommendations are consistent with those in standard references, such as the Advanced Pediatric Life Support (APLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) textbooks. Additional guidance is available in the manual Emergency Medical Services for Children: The Role of the Primary Care Provider, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as in the PALS and APLS textbooks.
