Pediatric Vehicular Heatstroke

As of August 31, 2022, twenty-one U.S. children have died from pediatric vehicular heatstroke. And summer is not over.  In this webinar, Katie Donnelly, MD, MPH from Children’s National Medical Center will cover the unique physiology of children’s responses to heat, the treatment for overheated children, and why cars are so dangerous to kids. She will also address the critical steps to take if you find a child left alone in a car and overheating, and tips for educating caregivers to prevent this problem. Safety advocates will also learn tips for integrating pediatric vehicular heatstroke prevention into their community events.
