Indian Academy of Pediatrics Intensive Care Chapter
EPIC COURSE (Essential Pediatric Intensive Care) is a most ambitious program developed by the IAP Intensive care chapter. With an intention of providing basic intensive care training and expertise to practicing Pediatricians, to provide much needed timely and appropriate care to sick children in the periphery; in smaller hospital set-up and nursing homes. The module covers common and important pediatric critical care problems and important skills, including basic ventilation. Pending easy availability of intensive care facilities across the country, especially in the periphery, EPIC COURSE is a step forward in realizing availability of basic intensive care to needy children. Pediatricians with focused training in managing sick children will be able to save many seriously ill children in their respective geographic area/s and will save many precious lives & improve health of our children.
