Resuscitation: Pediatric Algorithms

  • Cristina M. Zeretzke-Bien


This chapter provides “Quick Hit” algorithms to manage critically ill or coding pediatric patients and easy-to-follow, step-by-step references to manage the most acutely ill children. Seconds count in recognition, identification of causes, initiation of high-quality CPR, and administration of resuscitation medications and fluids. This chapter will give you the high-yield essential information you need to manage a pediatric code. The algorithms are easy to follow, with helpful tips and medication doses to providing rapid, high-quality care to the most critical pediatric patients.
