Dear Mr Hoyle

 

We are writing further to your e-mail dated 2 May 2016 requesting the
number of paediatric cannulations, paediatric intubations and paediatric
defibrillation attempts over the last 24 months.

 

Please find below the answers to the questions you have raised:

 

a)     Paediatric Cannulations = 50 (which were for cardiac patients
only).  I can confirm that EMAS does not hold any further information
relating to cannulations for other conditions.

b)    Paediatric Intubations = 40 (this figure includes endotracheal tubes
and I-gel/laryngeal mask airway only, and does not include Oropharyngeal
or Nasopharyngeal Airways)

c)     Paediatric Defibrillation attempts = 7 (this figure is for use of a
defibrillator in giving a shock to the patient and does not include the
use of a defibrillator to ascertain a rhythm as this is data that EMAS
does not hold).

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Matthew Williams
