Surgeons-talking-to-pediatric-patient-mother-in-hospital-hallway_750x500
  • While less common than adult cardiac arrest, pediatric cardiac arrest occurs in and out of the hospital setting.
  • Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome occurs in pediatric cardiac arrest survivors and is a complex syndrome including brain injury, myocardial dysfunction, systemic ischemia/reperfusion response, and persistent precipitating pathophysiology.
  • In post-cardiac arrest patients, long-term neurobehavioral and neuropsychiatric outcomes, as well as health-related quality-of-life outcomes vary based on numerous cardiac arrest factors. This new scientific statement summarizes the current science and supporting evidence for caring for these patients.
