Pediatric assessment triangle

The pediatric assessment triangle is one of the core components of the APLS instruction course. Assessment of a sick child is based on a quick examination of their appearance, breathing, and circulation.[1] The appearance is determined by an examination of tone, how interactive the child is, if they are consolable, their gaze, and the quality of their speech or cry.
