Emergency Care for Children and Infants at Seton

Emergency care for children and infants is different than emergency care for adults. Their growing bodies require specialized care. The emergency room physicians and staff at Seton have specialty training and experience with childhood emergency care.

This includes:

  • Pediatric airway management and CPR
  • Resuscitation of infants and children
  • General pediatric emergency care

Seek immediate medical help if your child exhibits any of the following warning signs of a medical emergency:

  • Confusion, headache or vomiting following a head injury
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Inability to stand up or unsteady walking
  • Unconsciousness
  • Abnormal or difficult breathing
  • Discoloration of skin or lips
  • Difficulty eating
  • High, sustained fever
  • Severe vomiting or diarrhea

Please bring your child’s medical history and any medications (in their original containers) with you to the Emergency Department.

If your child has swallowed poison or any harmful medications, call poison control first at (800) 222-1222, and then bring the suspected poison or medication with your child to the Emergency Department.
