The Evolution of Excellence in Pediatric Emergency Care—Part 2: The Handtevy System—The Next Generation
Caring for sick kids—especially really, really sick kids—is stressful, and as our stress levels increase, so does our likelihood of error. Lack of regular practice with these types of emergencies can make matters worse, and if we add mathematical calculations to the equation, the challenge is compounded.

Lakeview Emergency Medical Services (EMS) are leading the state with new pediatric technology [Lakeview EMS]
Paramedics at Lakeview EMS, a St. Croix Valley leader in pre-hospital standards are using a new technology called the Handtevy System to offer the highest level of care for their pediatric patients.
New technology is helping paramedics treat young patients, and North Memorial medics are the first in the state to use it. When an emergency happens and an ambulance is called, first responders fly into action. But when that person needing help is a child, “…the stress level is that much higher,” Dr. John Lyng with North Memorial Ambulance Service and Air Care said.
North Memorial Health Care is the first in the state to use a certain kind of technology to treat pediatric patients. The technology is used in North Memorial helicopters and ambulances. –You hear it all the time, seconds count during an emergency. Dealing with children in critical situations takes it up a notch.
One of the scariest calls emergency responders face is a pediatric cardiac arrest and most are caused from drownings. Even for the most seasoned professional, these are high stress, high anxiety and high emotion calls.
Ritz Carlton Patient Satisfaction in EMS — Making it a Fond Farewell [Carolina Fire Rescue EMS Journal]
It’s two p.m. on a Sunday afternoon and you and your crew find yourself searching for an address in a beaten up mobile home park. A 75-year-old female is living alone and suffers a fall and likely has a broken hip. The neighbors wave you down as your vehicle finds its way through the crowded streets. The woman’s name is Ms. Jones and she is clearly in a significant amount of pain. Her morphine dose is ready to be given, yet her skin is so brittle and her veins so flat that multiple attempts at an IV fail.
Handtevy Pediatric Dosing System Wins 2015 EMS World Top Innovation Award [Pediatric Emergency Standards, Inc.]
Pediatric Emergency Standards Inc., creator of the Handtevy System, the revolutionary pediatric resuscitation system, wins an EMS Top Innovation Award for e-Handtevy Mobile, which was recently unveiled at EMS World Expo 2015 in Las Vegas.
In this episode of the EMS Garage from EMS World Expo 2015, host Chris Montera, the Geekymedic, is joined by Dr. Peter Antevy from Handtevy.com. They are talking about pediatric critical care and resuscitation.
If you met Peter Antevy, MD, at a party and asked him what he did for a living, chances are he would say, “I’m a pediatric emergency room doctor.” This answer is the equivalent of calling the Grand Canyon a “deep crater” or Niagara Falls a “waterfall.”
This week on the tip segment I bring you the last of the segments we recorded at EMS World Expo last year in November with Dr. Peter Antevy who created the now renowned Handtevy pediatric medication and dosing system for PALs and pediatric critical care.
The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) EMS for Children program today provided twelve Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agencies from across the state with pediatric response bags and training essential to quickly responding to critically injured infants and children.
In a terrifying moment for a local mom, her one year-old daughter Arianna started choking on a grape, completely obstructing her airway. The mother made a distressing phone call to the Coral Springs 911 dispatch center where police first arrived on the scene and performed CPR until she was handed off to paramedics.
1-Year-Old Chokes on Grape, Found in Cardiac Arrest, Saved By Coral Springs Paramedics [Pediatric Emergency Standards, Inc.]
Paramedics attribute save to high quality training and the newly adopted Handtevy™ Pediatric Resuscitation System. When seconds matter, Coral Springs paramedics stay on scene to revive pediatric patients in cardiac arrest.
First responders are eliminating mistakes in emergencies and they say it could mean the difference between life and death for your child. When firefighters and paramedics get called to an emergency involving a child, seconds count and so does giving the right dosage of life-saving medicine.
In this week’s Inside EMS podcast quick clip, hosts Chris and Kelly are joined by Dr. Peter Antevy, who discusses reasons for treating pediatric patients on-scene rather than rapidly transporting during a cardiac arrest. In the adult world, unless you get ROSC, EMS knows that every second that goes by reduces the neurological outcome and survivability, Antevy said. For that reason, many agencies mandate that EMS stay on-scene for 20 minutes.
Any time you are dispatched to a pediatric call, there is always an increased level of anxiety. Couple that with the fact that a majority of EMS calls involve adults and it’s no wonder that these low-volume, high-risk scenarios can cause even the most experienced medics stress. Adding to the anxiety is the real possibility of making a medication dosing error.
We hear about it too often in South Florida. A young child is found floating in a backyard pool. Now fire rescue crews have something new to save lives. 7’s Lynn Martinez shows us how this timely treatment saved a little boy from drowning.
The single most common cause of anxiety-provoked tachycardia in pre-hospital care is the mere thought of a pediatric call. In EMS departments across this country the fear of treating a sick child is equally pervasive amongst experienced and inexperienced providers.
Innovation Zone’s Chris Cebollero reviews the Handtevy™ Pediatric Box a complete, portable pediatric resuscitation and drug dosing system.
It’s summertime and a group of children is at a neighborhood pool party. Although there’s a designated adult to supervise the young swimmers, a scream fills the air as someone notices that a 3-year-old boy is submerged in the shallow end of the pool.
Peter Antevy, MD, never intended to reinvent the wheel. He was just looking for a more efficient, effective way to determine drug dosages for his pediatric patients. What he eventually came up with—what would become the Handtevy method—bears an obvious resemblance, at least in principle, to the Broselow Tape.
Glenda Robinson can smile now watching her 6-year-old son Jeremy Splash around in the water, but it was a very different scene four years ago when his older sister found him floating face down in the backyard pool.
Glenda Robinson: “We don’t know how long he was in the water, but she said when my husband pulled him out, he was purple, blue purple.”
Pediatric Emergency Standards Inc. does not make clinical or medical decisions. The Handtevy System is intended to be utilized as a guide only. Provider's experience and training should be the final determinant of clinical treatment decisions.
