Disclaimer: These guidelines are based on best evidence available at the time of publishing. They are designed to support initial management of critically ill children. We recommend contacting KIDS on 03002001100 as soon as possible for further discussion. These guidelines do not replace medical practitioner's responsibility to ensure appropriate management based on individual patient circumstances.
The majority of these guidelines and checklists are now available on a free app for Android and iOS smart phones. See the app page for more details. Please note, however, that the guidelines in 'app' are updated less frequently than the website.
