Pediatric Strangulation, Part 1
October 10, 2017
10:00 am Pacific Time
(12:00 pm CT, 1:00 pm ET)
This webinar will highlight the unique challenges faced by medical providers and investigators when working with children who have histories or suspected histories of a strangulation assault. We will review some of the anatomic and physiologic differences between child and adult victims, as well as the ways child victims might present. Current recommendations for the acute, medical evaluation of pediatric strangulation will be discussed, as well as a current project to gain expert consensus on the best imaging studies to use in children. Finally, we will give a sneak peek at best practices for clinical and photo documentation which will be the subject of our Pediatric Strangulation Part 2 webinar scheduled in 2018.
