Outcome for paediatric
out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
(OHCA) is generally poor,
with survival reported as less
than 10%. Those who do
survive are likely to have an
unfavourable neurological
outcome. This retrospective
observational analysis study
examined the relationship
between on-scene time and
improved survival. The study
also examined which prehospital
interventions may
lead to improved survival.
The researchers had a focus
on the length of time on
scene, level of care (basic/
advanced) and administration
of fluids/medication.
