Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva

Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva accumulated 20 years of experience in medical education, including participating in an MBA for Physicians Program from the University of Houston. With his academic training on health care administration and management, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva sits as the associate executive director of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is composed of 64,000 pediatric-practitioner members, including pediatricians, surgical specialists, and medical subspecialists. The organization’s mission is to aid in the provision of optimal care for infants and children. To accomplish this goal, AAP creates Life Support Programs such as Pediatric First Aid for Caregivers and Teachers, or PedFACTs.

PedFACTs is a pediatric first aid course that trains teachers and caregivers to provide immediate care if a child becomes ill or gets injured. Specifically, the course focuses on the application of Pediatric First Aid’s 4Cs, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and the proper use of an automated external defibrillator and epinephrine auto-injector. After completing the course and passing the examinations, teachers and caregivers are given a PedFACTs course completion certificate that is valid for 2 years.
