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. 

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the difference between in-hospital and prehospital cardiac arrest

2. Understand the four phases of pediatric arrest

3. Apply the importance of early airway intervention
