  • Management Protocols for Paediatric Emergencies, Second Edition

    This manual is also an attempt at standardization of paediatric care across treatment centres. Be it a teaching hospital or a rural health centre. It will also provide a guidance for the use of medications, dose calculation and route of administration which help in reducing drug prescription errors. Standardization of care provided will then hopefully translate in improved medical outcome and a reduction in patient morbidity and mortality. Uniformity of practice will also benefit medical students and doctors in training who move between different treatment sites and hospitals. Additionally, ongoing evaluation and refinement of these protocols can lead to further improvements in pediatric emergency care and ultimately save lives as it goes in why osteopathic medicine essay with explanation.

Of the 9 million annual TB cases, about 1 million (11%) occur in children (under 15 years of age). Of these childhood cases, 75% occur annually in 22 high-burden countries that together account for 80% of the world estimated incident cases. In Africa, an estimated 10% of new active TB cases occur in children under 5. This estimate is likely to be low because many sick children are not brought to health facilities, and there is a limited diagnostic capacity in many treatment centers.
