More about the paediatric SCRAM line
Following the success of the Adult SCRAM, it was decided there should be a paediatric version. This, however, didn’t come without its challenges. Paediatric SCRAM bags require a broader size range of equipment and need to accommodate children ranging from around 3kg at birth to 50kg in adolescence. A paediatric version of Adult SCRAM was created to enhance the performance of paediatric airway management intervention, while in turn reducing error and cognitive load.
Paediatric SCRAM is designed to be a compact Paediatric Emergency Airway Bag that provides a structured reproducible approach to paediatric airway management. The design and selection of equipment spans the entire neonatal to adolescent age range, and the lay out of the bags makes it easy to access the appropriate age range equipment. The preparation and organisation of equipment with SCRAM helps reduce the time to airway intervention, it reduces the margin for error, standardises practice and promotes good governance.
