These guidelines have been supplied by a hospital as an example of a clinical practice guideline to provide clinicians at that institution with an analytical framework for the evaluation and treatment of a particular diagnosis or condition. These guidelines are not intended to establish a protocol for all patients with a particular condition, may not be replicable at other institutions, and it is not intended to replace a clinician's clinical judgment. A clinician's adherence to these guidelines is voluntary. It is understood that some patients will not fit the clinical conditions contemplated by these guidelines and that the recommendations contained in these guidelines should not be considered inclusive of all proper methods or exclusive of other methods of care reasonably directed to obtaining the same results. Decisions to adopt any specific recommendation of these guidelines must be made by the clinician in light of available resources and the individual circumstances presented by the patient. These guidelines have not undergone expert review by the Pediatric Trauma Society and its hosting by the Pediatric Trauma Society should not be considered an endorsement of its content or the refutation of any alternate management strategy.
