A national committee of experts from 10 health and medical organizations has developed new guidelines on pediatric equipment and supplies that emergency departments should maintain and have available.

"Emergency medicine is at the forefront of promoting high-quality medical care for children," said Marianne Gausche, MD, of the American College of Emergency Physicians and a member of the national committee. "These guidelines establish a national consensus about what equipment is necessary to provide high-quality care for children, and they allow for modification to address different severity levels of patient populations."
