Management of a critically ill or injured child demands a systematic approach. This systematic approach must include a plan to identify and begin emergent treatment for stabilization of the patient even before a complete history and physical examination are obtainable. In addition, a timely, directed evaluation of each body area must be performed in order to minimize the chance of overlooking potentially serious additional/contributing illnesses or injuries.
