Paediatric emergency medicine, paramedics with drug practise autonomy.

A paramedic is a health care professional whose primary role is to provide advanced emergency medical care for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. The participants had been 150 superior paramedics with drug practise autonomy. Each participant was exposed to a 20- minute, standardized, fully video-recorded, realistic paediatric out-of-health facility cardiac arrest cardiopulmonary resuscitation situation concerning an 18-month-antique infant. Individuals have been tested on sequential arrangements of four intravenous emergency drugs of various degrees of training problem (epinephrine, midazolam, 10% dextrose, and sodium bicarbonate). Participants have been randomized (1:1 ratio) to the guide of an app designed to help with paediatric drug guidance (intervention; n=74) or to follow conventional drug guidance methods without help (manage; n=76).
