DETECT and normal physiological ranges by age (vital signs)

DETECT Junior is part of the state-wide Between the Flags education program and is specifically designed for front line clinical staff who care for infants and children to help them:

  • Improve recognition and management of infants and children who are clinically deteriorating

  • Know when to activate the Clinical Emergency Response System (CERS)

  • Develop a co-ordinated approach to caring for infants and children who are clinically deteriorating

Below are the key documents, including the standard paediatric observation chart and the vital signs.
