    Title: Pediatric Care in Disasters
    Author 作者: Andrea Tenner

    General Information一般資料:
    50% of victims in man-made and natural disasters are children.
    50 %的人為和自然災害的受害者是兒童。
    In low and middle income countries (where 95% of disasters occur), children are particularly vulnerable.
    在低到中等收入國家(95 %的災害發生地) ,兒童特別容易受到傷害。
    Early responders must be well versed in caring for pediatric diarrheal disease, acute respiratory tract infections, measles, malaria, severe bacterial infections, malnutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, injuries, burns and poisonings with few resources.
    Pediatric specific triage systems have been developed to aid in resource allocation during mass casualty responses.
    Pediatric patients are singularly vulnerably to exploitation, abuse and trafficking during disaster, particularly when they are separated from their families.

    Bottom Line:

    Many US based emergency medicine physicians are keen to respond to international disasters.  A clear understanding about the particular risks to children during disaster response are critical in order to care for the most vulnerable of disaster victims.
