In paediatric cardiopulmonary arrest, International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) states, 'there are no simple guidelines to determine when resuscitative efforts become futile'. Considerations to assist this decision-making include cause of arrest, pre-existing medical conditions, age, site of arrest, duration of untreated cardiopulmonary arrest, witnessed arrest and presence of shockable rhythm. Outcomes are poor in out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA), particularly for infants. This single-centre observational study describes the characteristics and outcomes of the subgroup of children presenting to our hospital's ED following OHCA still receiving cardiac compressions, to assist development of guidelines for future resuscitation efforts in our ED, particularly for cessation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
