PECARN Pediatric Head Injury/Trauma Algorithm

Provides the PECARN algorithm for evaluating pediatric head injury.

Note: This only applies to children with GCS scores of 14 or greater.

Calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care nor should they substitute for clinical judgement. disclaimer
