Pediatric Emergency Care

About one-quarter of Shore Medical Center's emergency patients are children. Because children are not just small versions of adults, they require a special kind of emergency care.

Shore Medical Center Emergency Department staff uses The Breslow system to help emergency personnel quickly correlate a child’s size to a chart indicating the most suitable equipment and medications. Color-coded emergency carts are already stocked with appropriately sized equipment and doses of medicine. Saving precious time and precious lives.
