Pediatric Nurse Expert Gives Birth To Neonatal Creation

Pediatric Nurse Expert Gives Birth To Neonatal Creation

Press Release Nov 17, 2015

November 17, 2015 -- As we acknowledge World Prematurity Day today, Peds-R-Us Medical Education, LLC, is proud to announce a new device to help save the lives of tiny babies.

Scott DeBoer, RN, MSN, CPEN, CEN, CFRN, CCRN, brings to life a reference guide that can be kept in your pocket and used for neonatal emergencies. This double-sided slide chart holds volumes of vital newborn information in the hopes of saving precious lives and avoiding medical mistakes. "The smaller the child, the higher the stress; they are directly correlated," DeBoer says.

Previously working with the company who created the Pedi-Wheel, a similar device for children, DeBoer found a need for a similar product for babies from 500 grams to 5 kilos (just over a pound to about 11 pounds). Providing calculations such as resuscitation medication doses, suggested sizes for ET tubes and laryngoscope blades, suction catheter, NG/OG, Foley catheter, and chest tube sizes, the Neo-Wheel is perfect for everyday use or as a study aid.

Peds-R-Us Medical Education began in 1996 with DeBoer teaching a few pediatric seminars. Peds-R-Us has continued to expand over the years and is now the now largest company dedicated to pediatric emergency education in the U.S. Owned and operated by husband and wife team, Scott and Lisa DeBoer of Dyer, Indiana, the two travel the globe presenting wherever there is a need for additional peds training from seminars to hands on labs. Their goal is to provide unique educational programs geared toward medical professionals of all levels.

Scott DeBoer, RN, MSN, CPEN, CEN, CFRN, CCRN, has recently retired after 25 years of flight nursing to focus full-time on pediatric emergency education: “It was hard for me to leave flight nursing since I love being able to care for critically ill and injured patients, but I have the ability to affect the lives of far more children with education. My wife and I have literally dedicated our lives to the mission of teaching better ways to care for kids.”
