Abstract

The importance of high quality, prompt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for patients in cardiac arrest is receiving new attention and emphasis. This extends to CPR for children. In this article, the authors examine the differences in pediatric anatomy and the mechanisms of blood flow during CPR. Additionally, new evidence on the frequent poor performance of CPR and mechanisms to improve it are presented.
