The Pediatric CAM-ICU or pCAM-ICU is an assessment tool for use by the bedside clinician. It takes less than 2 minutes to complete. Training is easy and minimal.
We have adapted the adult model for use with children. It is important to meet the different cognitive and developmental stages in pediatrics. This assessment tool is validated for use in children 5 years and older.
pCAM-ICU Pocket Card
The Pediatric Pocket Card is a quick reference for the assessment tool. It is designed for easy access as a resource for the clinician trained in the use of the tool.
The Worksheet is the instructional guide for the clinician to follow during the learning phase. It includes scripted language with recommended time intervals. Consistency and repetition improves the technique of the clinician and helps the clinician to become efficient with the tool.
Pediatric Daily Guide
The Daily Guide provides a map to follow each day to identify and assess your patients. The patient should be assessed once per shift or twice in a 24 hour period. But can be assessed more often if there is change in behavior. It takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
