I struggled to find PEM resources for my CT3 year, despite the variety of excellent resources out there. I hope this website will help point you in the right direction. I'm not a PEM expert, but am following the guidance CEM have issued (in the form of a syllabus) to put together this page. This page is not endorsed by CEM, and any mistakes are mine.

Please comment with corrections, additions and further suggestions.

All the information here is collected from the internet, and it might be out of date or inaccurate, so please use your judgement and adhere to your hospital's protocols. If you do notice any errors or omissions please comment so we can put them right!

To navigate, decide whether you want to start with a PMP or a PAP. You can then select which PMP or PAP you want to look at. You will then be taken to the summary page for that PMP, with links expanded topic collections. If you know what topic you want to look at already, click on the link on the right hand side.

Paediatric Major Presentations

There are six Paediatric Major Presentations.

For CT3,  you need to complete summative assessments in all six of them, or successfully complete an EPLS or APLS course.
For HST you need to re-visit the curriculum.

I've now covered all of the PMPs. If you have any further links or comments, please  do add them as comments on each page. There's a summary of what I think is important on each page, and I've put all the summaries together here. I like to keep a copy of the jpegs on my phone for easy reference at work - it's helped quite a few times.

The six major presentations are:
PMP1 - Anaphylaxis
PMP2 - Apnoea, stridor and airway obstruction
PMP3 - Cardiorespiratory arrest
PMP4 - Major trauma
PMP5 - Shocked child
PMP6 - Unconscious child
