Objective: To evaluate the viability and effectiveness of a simulation-based pediatric mock code program on patient outcomes, as well as residents' confidence in performing resuscitations. A resident's leadership ability is integral to accurate and efficient clinical response in the successful management of cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA). Direct experience is a contributing factor to a resident's code team leadership ability; however, opportunities to gain experience are limited by relative… 
The Impact of Mock Code Simulation on the Resuscitation Practice and Patient Outcome for Children With Cardiopulmonary Arrest
TLDR
Mock code simulation was a helpful tool to enhance team performance and improve the quality of cardiac resuscitation and cardiac arrest recognition, while its impact on the survival rate was not significant in this study.
Effect of a Pediatric Mock Code Simulation Program on Resuscitation Skills and Team Performance
TLDR
Over a series of simulation sessions that were conducted for each pediatric ward with repeated code sessions, the ward nursing staff showed significant improvements in initiating CPR, with a faster CPR initiation time.
ASSESSMENT OF THE QUALITY OF PEDIATRIC CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION USING THE IN SITU MOCK CODE TOOL
TLDR
There was low adherence to the PALS guidelines during cardiac arrest simulations, and periodical clinical simulations in pediatric services are suggested to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation performance.
Code Blue In Situ Simulation Program
Nursing staff must always be prepared to care for a patient experiencing a cardiac arrest. Fast, high quality interventions are imperative in achieving optimal patient survival and outcomes. A code
Using simulation with interprofessional team training to improve RRT/code performance
TLDR
The Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center used data from the American Heart Association National Registry of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation to create an interprofessional, collaborative program using simulation that engaged staff and promoted interprofessional collaboration that may ultimately improve the quality of patient care.
High-fidelity simulation enhances pediatric residents' retention, knowledge, procedural proficiency, group resuscitation performance, and experience in pediatric resuscitation.
TLDR
Despite significant skill decay, HFS pediatric resuscitation training improved pediatric resident cognitive knowledge, procedural proficiency, and comfort.
Impact of simulation training on time to initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation for first-year pediatrics residents.
TLDR
A simulation-based educational intervention significantly reduced time to initiation of CPR for first-year pediatrics residents and facilitated acquisition of critical CPR skills that have the potential to impact patient outcome.
Improving Code Team Performance and Survival Outcomes: Implementation of Pediatric Resuscitation Team Training*
TLDR
With implementation of Composite Resuscitation Team Training, survival to discharge after pediatric cardiopulmonary arrest improved, as did code team performance, and demonstration of improved survival after adjusting for code team adherence to resuscitation standards suggests that this may be a valuable resuscitation training program.
Excellence in Communication and Emergency Leadership (ExCEL): Pediatric First 5 Minutes Workshop for Residents
TLDR
This workshop provided residents with additional instruction and practice in the initial management of critically ill pediatric patients in cardiopulmonary arrest, including how to best perform high-quality CPR.
Low-Fidelity, In-Situ Pediatric Resuscitation Simulation Improves RN Competence and Self-Efficacy.
TLDR
In situ low-fidelity simulations led by RNs contributed to significant improvement in adherence to resuscitation guidelines and in staff confidence, as measured by the Clinical Performance Tool, a set of checklists designed to measure adherence to Pediatric Advanced Life Support algorithms by multidisciplinary teams during simulations.

Pediatric Resuscitation Mock Code Practice Impacts Selected Skills
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mock code practice may impact some, but not all, aspects of pediatric resuscitation skill retention and computer controlled mannequins provide reproducible measurable experiences.
Simulation of In-Hospital Pediatric Medical Emergencies and Cardiopulmonary Arrests: Highlighting the Importance of the First 5 Minutes
TLDR
Alarming delays and deviations occur in the major components of pediatric resuscitation, and future educational and organizational interventions should focus on improving the quality of care delivered during the first 5 minutes of resuscitation.
Simulated pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation: initial events and response times of a hospital arrest team.
TLDR
The time required for team members to respond to an emergency call and to initiate definitive treatment in the authors' pediatric facility and the use of SCAs serves as an extension of Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support education and provides a valuable learning experience and quality assurance tool are evaluated.
Impact of a Pediatric Primary Care Office-based Mock Code Program On Physician and Staff Confidence to Perform Life-saving Skills
TLDR
The results of this study support the recommendation that mock codes should be performed in the pediatric primary care setting to improve practitioner confidence and decrease practitioner anxiety.
Evaluation of a multidisciplinary pediatric mock trauma code educational initiative: a pilot study.
TLDR
The pediatric mock trauma code educational initiative improved residents' self-reported confidence, knowledge, and comfort level in managing pediatric trauma and raised residents' awareness of knowledge gaps.
Assessing pediatric senior residents’ training in resuscitation: Fund of knowledge, technical skills, and perception of confidence
TLDR
Although confident in performing many of the necessary resuscitation skills, few residents performed critical components of these skills correctly and current pediatric residency training may not provide sufficient experience to develop adequate skills, fund of knowledge, or confidence needed for resuscitation.
Simulation of Pediatric Trauma Stabilization in 35 North Carolina Emergency Departments: Identification of Targets for Performance Improvement
TLDR
This study used simulation to identify deficiencies in stabilization of children presenting to emergency departments, revealing that mistakes are ubiquitous and interventions aimed at improving identified deficiencies can improve trauma stabilization performance and, ultimately, the outcomes of children who present to EDs.

TLDR
The hypothesis that the PALS course alone is insufficient to provide pediatric residents with competency in cardiopulmonary resuscitation is supported, as the course does not provide for the expected level of competencies in relevant technical skills.
Implementing Newborn Mock Codes
TLDR
Implementation of newborn mock codes can be effectively accomplished with appropriate planning and consideration for adult learning behaviors, and can encourage teamwork, communication, skills building, and increased confidence levels of providers.
Effect of Hospital Characteristics on Outcomes From Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: A Report From the National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
TLDR
Improved 24-hour survival for children receiving in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation is associated with the presence of pediatric residents and fellows, and multivariate analysis showed improved 24- hour survival in hospitals staffed by pediatric residentsand surgeons and pediatric residents, surgeons, and fellows than for hospitals with no pediatric physician staffing or pediatric surgeons alone.
