Date:8/4/2014

rological survival for children who suffer a cardiac arrest in our ICU," said Wolfe, who added, "Our unique, interdisciplinary debriefing program resulted in improvements of CPR technique to levels of American Heart Association (AHA) Guideline compliance previously not thought possible this was truly a stellar achievement."

At The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, all ICU physicians, respiratory therapists and nurses are certified in pediatric advanced life support and/or advanced cardiovascular life support and participate in frequent mock code and rolling refresher CPR training.

"This study demonstrates how doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers can come together to improve in-hospital care and save lives," said Robert Sutton, M.D., M.S.C.E., chair of the hospital's Resuscitation Committee and senior author on the project.

"This is the first study in children showing that pre-training with simulation and debriefing teams on how we can do it better improves survival. It also highlights what a unique program we have here for cardiac arrest patients from prevention, care during arrest, and post-arrest care," said Robert Berg, M.D., chief of critical care medicine at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
