SickKids Peds EM Quick Hits

This 30 page PDF is a quick and easy guide made by our Canadian Friends with SickKids. All credit goes to the original authors.

“This document was put together by SickKids ED fellows and staff physicians to aid general pediatricians who may be redeployed to see pediatric patients in their emergency departments due to the COVID19 Pandemic. Please note, these are our opinions and references and institutional variation as well as physician preference may vary”


2019 PEMCARS

This is a fantastic literature review of all things relevant to pediatric emergency medicine. It’s a little dry, but helps explain the “why” we do things differently in the PEM world. All credit given to the original authors

Michael Mojica, M.D., Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, Director of Education: Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine,
New York University School of Medicine/Bellevue Hospital Center says of the document:

“The PEMCAR or Pediatric Emergency Medicine Critical Article Review originated in 2004 from my desire as a fellowship director to add a structured format to our division’s journal club sessions and to provide our fellows with the opportunity to write comprehensive critical article reviews.”
