Pediatric Emergency and Disaster Search (PEDS)

The Pediatric Emergency and Disaster Search (PEDS) tool is designed to help you find high-quality information about how to take care of children before, during, and after crises.

In addition to searching the PPN website, PEDS searches numerous other sites to display relevant results from government agencies, academic institutions, pediatric-focused organizations, and other trusted sources.

To use the search, type in a keyword (such as “hurricane” or “trauma”) and hit the enter/return key or click the search icon.

See About PEDS to learn more and explore search tips. Also, please consider taking a quick survey on your experience with the PEDs. All responses will be used to improve the tool.
