Ongoing management of the successful arrest

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Introduction: The return of a pulse during paediatric resuscitation is often seen as a triumph for the resuscitation team, the child and their family. However, for the critical care physician the hard part is to yet come in managing the post-resuscitation phase. The four phases of resuscitation (Table 23.1) need to be expertly managed to minimize further injury to the child and maximize the chance of a permanent return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) with successful short- and long-term outcomes.
