1 Guidelines for paediatric emergency equipment and supplies for a physician s office Peer review and other recent paediatric literature have suggested that office-based physicians who care for children should have some basic emergency care equipment, supplies and drugs available to deal with the occasional life-threatening situation that might occur in the office setting. The recommended equipment, supplies and drugs are considered optimal to support a child until his or her arrival in the hospital emergency department. The choice of exactly what to obtain depends on the type of practice and the location of the office. For example, a physician whose office is farther than 30 minutes from a hospital may stock more of the desirable items. If a basic package of emergency equipment is not available, some medicolegal problems may arise. All physicians caring for children should be knowledgeable and up-to-date in paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends that the materials listed in the tables below be stocked in physicians offices. All drugs should be kept in a locked emergency equipment container, and their expiry dates reviewed regularly. The total cost of these supplies is less than $1,000. TABLE 1: Circulation supplies recommended for physicians offices Vascular access Intravenous butterfly needles (25, 23, 21 gauge) Indwelling intravenous catheters (24 to 18 gauge) Intravenous fluids and tubing Normal saline (two 500 ml bags) Normal saline in 5% dextrose (two 500 ml bags) Extension tubing Drip chambers (Solusets) Syringes (1 cc, 5 cc, 10 cc) with needles Tape Tourniquet (rubber bands, tubing) Sphygmomanometer (with assorted cuffs) T-connectors Arm boards Intraosseous needles (16 gauge) TABLE 2: Emergency drugs recommended for physicians offices Epinephrine for anaphylaxis (1:10,000 solution: 0.1 ml/kg)
