What is ETAT about?

ETAT Emergency Triage Assessment Treatment

ETAT+ is a comprehensive and proven intervention developed specifically for implementation in first-level facility-based care in East Africa and Asia, thereby reaching the poorest and most vulnerable children in rural and periurban areas.

ETAT guidelines are designed to deal with common problems in pediatric departements in low ressource setting where

  • inpatient mortality is high,
  • many of the patients die within 24 hours of admission.

 

Common problems

are e.g. inadequate service, low training level of staff, especially in emergency care, no or few written protocols, delays in initiating care.

 

ETAT guidelines

are developed by WHO and are adapted from the Advanced Paediatric Life Support guidelines used in western countries. They identify children with immediately life-threatening conditions which are most frequently seen in developing countries, such as obstruction of the airway and other breathing problems caused by infections, shock, severely altered central nervous system funktion (coma or convulsions) and severe dehydration.

These guidelines were developed in Malawi and were field-tested in several other countries including Angola, Brazil, Cambodia, Indonesia, Kenya and Niger. Besides from lectures the course is based on an interactive training.
