To evaluate the effect of audio‐prompted rate guidance during chest compressions on the performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on children. 

CPR-why the new emphasis?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure which is performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood

Improving cardiopulmonary resuscitation quality with help from a popular song

It is hypothesized that a very popular song, with a rhythm that fits the CPR chest compressions rate target would be an effective audio guidance to train schoolchildren in CPR.

Outcome of children who are apneic and pulseless in the emergency room

Of 34 patients studied from June 1981 through August 1984, 27 died during the initial hospitalization and seven survived until hospital discharge, and five remain in a vegetative state after being discharged to a chronic care facility.

Ninety-one patients had cardiorespiratory arrest in a children's hospital emergency department over six years. Only five children survived, three with severe neurologic sequelae. The records of 40

Influence of compression rate on initial success of resuscitation and 24 hour survival after prolonged manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation in dogs.

Empirical support is provided for the recent decision to increase the chest compression rate for manual CPR recommended by the American Heart Association, and the hemodynamic and survival benefits of faster compression rates in this experimental preparation were not dependent on covariant alterations in compression duration.

Pediatric cardiopulmonary arrests in rural populations.

We reviewed emergency department records that spanned a period of 5 years at seven rural hospitals to provide more specific data concerning pediatric resuscitation. The purpose was to plan better for

Mechanisms by which epinephrine augments cerebral and myocardial perfusion during cardiopulmonary resuscitation in dogs.

The hypothesis was that epinephrine would improve myocardial and cerebral blood flow by preventing collapse of intrathoracic arteries and by vasoconstricting other vascular beds, thereby increasing perfusion pressures and improving electroencephalographic activity and restoration of spontaneous circulation.

Prognostic and therapeutic importance of the aortic diastolic pressure in resuscitation from cardiac arrest

In all nonsurvivors, it was impossible to maintain diastolic pressure above 30 mm Hg even with large doses of epinephrine and saline, which appears important for survival.
