Abstract

Despite improving survival rates for pediatric cardiac arrest victims, they remain strikingly low. Evidence for pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation is limited with many areas of ongoing controversy. The American Heart Association provides updated guidelines for life support based on comprehensive reviews of evidence-based recommendations and expert opinions. This facilitates the translation of scientific discoveries into daily patient care, and familiarization with these guidelines by health care providers and educators will facilitate the widespread, consistent, and effective care for patients.
