Illinois Emergency Medical Services for Children. (2010). Use of Strategic National Stockpile [SNS] Ventilators in the Pediatric Patient: Instructional Guidelines with Training Scenarios, 2nd Edition (2010).
These guidelines are intended as a quick reference for just-in-time training and set up of the types of mechanical ventilators included in the Strategic National Stockpile. The guidelines may be used by clinicians with a baseline knowledge of pulmonary physiology and the concepts of ventilation, but who may not be familiar with the stockpiled ventilators or who may not routinely care for children on ventilators.
