Management of Paediatric Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

According to O’Connor (2017), ‘mortality rates for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest are 80 to 97% for infants and children’ while ‘mortality rates for in-hospital cardiac arrest for infants and children range between 40% and 65%’.

With this in mind, it is important that nurses and other paediatric healthcare professionals continually review current resuscitation guidelines & recommendations and adequately prepare to ensure improved outcomes.
