Paediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrests--epidemiology and outcome.
The Utstein template adopted for adult out-of-hospital cardiac arrests was found applicable also in paediatric cardiac arrests and the outcome of resuscitation and to apply theUtstein template for the paediatric heart arrest population were found applicable. Expand
Utstein style reporting of in-hospital paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
With few exceptions, the Paediatric Utstein Style was found to be applicable for reporting retrospective data from in-hospital cardiac arrests in children and the effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in hospitalized children was determined. Expand
Severe and fatal childhood trauma.
A retrospective study was carried out of 347 severely injured children under 16 years of age, who required intensive care or died during a 10-year period in southern Finland, finding that the majority of all injuries and deaths in children were caused by road traffic accidents. Expand
Levosimendan: current data, clinical use and future development
Data from clinical trials indicate that levosimendan improves haemodynamics with no attendant significant increase in cardiac oxygen consumption and relieves symptoms of acute heart failure; these effects are not impaired or attenuated by the concomitant use of beta-blockers. Expand
Comparison of direct and intravesical measurement of intraabdominal pressure in children.

These data suggest that intravesical pressure closely correlates with intraabdominal pressure in children, and a bladder-filling volume of 1 mL/kg is recommended for the measurement of intraab Dominal Pressure in children with a risk of abdominal compartment syndrome. Expand
Optimally fitted tracheal tubes decrease the probability of postextubation adverse events in children undergoing general anesthesia
Whether there is a certain threshold air leak value beyond which a higher risk for adverse events after removal of TT can be predicted and to define other risk factors related to extubation are determined. Expand
Impact of age, submersion time and water temperature on outcome in near-drowning.
- P. Suominen, C. Baillie, R. Korpela, S. Rautanen, S. Ranta, K. Olkkola
- 1 March 2002
Submersion time was the only independent predictor of survival in linear regression analysis and patients age, water temperature and rectal temperature in the emergency room were not significant predictors of survival. Expand
Efficacy of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in pulseless paediatric trauma patients.
The overall survival rate of paediatric patients with cardiac arrest secondary to trauma is poor, but trauma patients in whom cardiac arrest is caused by respiratory arrest or by thoracoabdominal trauma in the hospital setting may have a chance of survival if a spontaneous circulation is rapidly restored with effective resuscitative measures.

Hemodynamic effects of rescue protocol hydrocortisone in neonates with low cardiac output syndrome after cardiac surgery
- P. Suominen, H. Dickerson, +7 authors A. Chang

- 1 November 2005
Most of the hemodynamically compromised neonates who were unresponsive to high doses of inotropic agents and fluid resuscitation after heart surgery responded to hydrocortisone with improvement of hemodynamic parameters and a decrease in inotropic requirements. Expand
Paediatric cardiac arrest and resuscitation provided by physician‐staffed emergency care units

This study aims to study the outcome of paediatric cardiac arrest patients in an emergency medical system which is based on physician staffed emergency care units, where paramedics provide prehospital emergency care. Expand
