Any pediatric case comes with a higher degree of tension due to a variety of factors including compensatory responses to distress leading to a precarious "cliff" when those compensatory efforts cease. When our team is dispatched to a 5 year-old child struggling to breathe, yet still shows strong vital signs, how will the AMPED team respond? This episode discusses at great length understanding that even though we should strive for perfection in every action we take, sometimes "good" is good enough because recovery is a long road and there are skilled and caring teams awaiting us when we hand off our patients.
