Improve Your Pediatric Cardiac Arrest Survival Rate by 35%-Paul Banerjee
In the United States, approximately 16,000 pediatric patients suffer CA each year. A collective review of pediatric cases of CA published a decade ago reported a survival rate to discharge of 13%, with good neurologic outcome in 8% overall. Out-of-hospital pediatric cardiac survival rates have remained lower than 9% despite many new advances in care. This session will demonstrate how Polk County Fire Rescue improved pediatric arrest survival from zero to 35% using new techniques and tools, including the Handtevy System and early aggressive airway management on scene.
