[...] These guidelines are designed to assist school staff in responding to pediatric emergencies when the school nurse is not available. They were created with the input of EMS [Emergency Medical Services], emergency medicine, and pediatric specialists to assist in the development of school based emergency guidelines. The purpose of the manual is to provide general guidance based on generally accepted courses of action when confronted with medical emergencies. The guidelines for managing various illnesses and injuries are listed in alphabetical order to assist in locating them in what may be stressful circumstances. In addition, toward the end of the manual, there is a section on disaster preparedness planning based on the type of threat. This also includes information to assist schools with pandemic flu planning."
