Longer chest compression interruption was associated with neurological outcome, survival to hospital discharge, and return of spontaneous circulation in children with in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA). In a Danish cohort study, each 5-second increment of longest chest compression pause duration was associated with 6% lower odds for survival with favourable neurological outcome .
Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation often requires interruptions to chest compression (CC); the possible impact on survival and neurological outcomes has been unknown. This cohort study included all index paediatric IHCAs ≥1 min in Pediatric Resuscitation Quality (PediRES-Q), a worldwide collaborative network, from July 2015 through December 2019. Age was by definition <18 years. Favourable neurological outcome was defined as Pediatric Cerebral Performance Category (PCPC) ≤3 at discharge or no change from baseline.
A total of 371 index IHCAs were identified. M...
