(Abstracted from JAMA, 314:802–810, 2015)

Current guidelines recommend giving epinephrine at 0.01 mg/kg (maximum, 1 mg) to patients in cardiac arrest with a nonshockable rhythm as soon as intraosseus access is obtained and then every 3 to 5 minutes. However, the effects of epinephrine dosing delays have not been studied in pediatric, nonshockable cardiac arrest patients.
