Lee, A E & Charnock, E & Miller, A 2015, 'Preparation and use of resuscitation equipment to assess and treat children in emergency situations', Nursing Children and Young People, 27(2), pp.30-37.
This article uses the (A) Airway, (B) Breathing and, (C) Circulation structured approach to the assessment of a sick child to provide an overview of the equipment used in resuscitation attempts involving children. It emphasises that a working knowledge of the resuscitation equipment used in emergency situations is fundamental to the process of checking and preparing it. The article is aimed at students and newly qualified nurses, but may be also useful as revision for more experienced nurses.
