From the announcement:

Evaluation of strangulation in the pediatric population is often overlooked and under assessed.  This webinar will discuss strangulation in the living pediatric patient.  A brief review of strangulation will be provided with a focus on discussing the differences in pediatric anatomy verses adult anatomy that may impact strangulation in a child.  Case studies of pediatric strangulation patients who presented to a forensic nurse examiner program will be utilized. Presenting signs and symptoms, patient and caregiver histories, clinical evaluation and case outcome (when known) will be included.
