Risk factors and outcomes for recurrent paediatric in-hospital cardiac arrest: Retrospective multicenter cohort study

Aim of study: Recurrent in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) is associated with morbidity and mortality in adults. We aimed to describe the risk factors and outcomes for paediatric recurrent IHCA.

Effect of Amplitude Spectral Area on Termination of Fibrillation and Outcomes in Pediatric Cardiac Arrest

Amplitude spectral area (AMSA) predicts termination of fibrillation (TOF) with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survival in adults but has not been studied in pediatric cardiac arrest. We characterized AMSA during pediatric cardiac arrest …

Longitudinal effect of high frequency training on CPR performance during simulated and actual pediatric cardiac arrest

Brief Summary This work is part of a continued research effort with the Videography in Pediatric Emergency Research (VIPER) project, as talked about in more detail in my ReSS 2018 poster presentation link. For more information I encourage you to read the write-up there and learn more from this incredible group’s past works. Abstract Study Aim To determine the impact of high-frequency CPR training on performance during simulated and real pediatric CPR events in a pediatric emergency department (ED).

Analysis of CPR quality by individual providers in the pediatric emergency department

Brief Summary This work is part of a continued research effort with the Videography in Pediatric Emergency Research (VIPER) project, as talked about in more detail in my ReSS 2018 poster presentation link. For more information I encourage you to read the write-up there and learn more from this incredible group’s past works. The abstract is posted below for convenience and available here: Abstract Objectives To describe chest compression (CC) quality by individual providers in two pediatric emergency departments (EDs) using video review and compression monitor output during pediatric cardiac arrests.

Pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation quality during intra-hospital transport

To evaluate pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) quality during intra-hospital transport to facilitate extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)-CPR (ECPR). We compared chest compression (CC) rate, depth, and fraction (CCF) between the …

Pediatric In-Hospital CPR Quality at Night and on Weekends

Survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) has been reported to be worse for arrests at night or during weekends.This study aimed to determine whether measured cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) quality metrics might explain this difference in …

Is CPR Quality Worse on Nights and Weekends in the Cardiac ICU?

Among children with in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA), survival to discharge is lower at night compared to daytime. We sought to describe the association of time of day and day of week with CPR quality in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) …

CPR, Verbal Prompts, and Hand Placement in VIPER

The VIPER project is a collaborative, multi-institutional effort to assess pediatric resuscitation in the ED using videography tools which can be reviewed for provider performance in emergency settings. In short, VIPER looks to measure and describe …
