Abstract

Advances in technology are continuously transforming medical care, including pediatric emergency medicine. The increasing adoption of point-of-care ultrasound examination can improve timely diagnoses without radiation and aids the performance of common procedures. The recent dramatic increase in electronic health record adoption offers an opportunity for enhanced clinical decision-making support. Simulation training and advances in technologies can provide continued proficiency training despite decreasing opportunities for pediatric procedures and cardiorespiratory resuscitation performance. This article reviews these and other recent advances in technology that have had the greatest impact on the current practice of pediatric emergency medicine.
