Managing SCA

The overall survival for pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is 6.4%, and lower in infants compared with children and adolescents. A greater survival rate is seen in pediatric patients with witnessed CA vs. unwitnessed in patients receiving bystander CPR and in patients with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) in the field vs. patients transported. . This session will demonstrate how Florida's Polk County Fire Rescue went from 0% to 40% survival in out-of-hospital pediatric cardiac arrest patients by completely changing its approach and switching to the Handtevy system.
