Although the care of children in emergency situations has always been acknowledged, the development of pediatric emergency medicine into a more clearly described area of a pediatric subspecialty has only been seen over the last 40 years. Pediatric emergency medicine now encompasses not only direct care in the emergency department but also prehospital care, innovations in diagnostic testing, and radiology advances, as well as advancements in medical and trauma care. In addition, pediatric emergency medicine also incorporates quality improvement initiatives to improve the safety and quality of emergency care in all settings, including community emergency departments, academic medical centers, and children’s hospitals and urgent care facilities. This Special Issue addresses a wide variety of topics that surround pediatric emergency medicine that have previously been rarely considered or have developed with new innovations or scientific advances. We recognize the tremendous growth and scope of pediatric emergency medicine which continuously encourages us to assess all evidence and experience so that we can continue to strive to provide the best care possible for the populations we treat.
