All pediatric office staff should be proficient in basic life support skills to appropriately stabilize children who may present to the office with medical emergencies. For practitioners who practice in rural settings or with long EMS response times, advanced pediatric life support education is also advised. Team role play through practice mock codes and study videos are other essential elements of office emergency preparedness education.
