Abstract

Children with special health care needs are those who have a health condition that requires health or related health services over and above what is expected to be required for the majority of children who are typically developing. Children with special health care needs have a range of conditions that may require medical technology. For the purposes of this article, emergency preparedness for children with special health care needs who require oxygen, tracheostomy care, and ventilator care will be discussed.
