Although firm evidence for its effectiveness is lacking, it is thought to stimulate spontaneous contractions, and increases the intensity of VF so increasing the likelihood of successful defibrillation. Subsequent doses of adrenaline are given every 3—5 min.
Do not use higher doses of intravascular adrenaline in children because this may worsen outcome. Atrioventricular conduction is also slowed and a similar effect occurs in accessory pathways. Amiodarone has a mild negative inotropic action. The hypotension that occurs with IV amiodarone is related to the rate of delivery and is due more to the solvent Polysorbate 80 and benzyl alcohol , which causes histamine release, than the drug itself.
In the treatment of shockable rhythms, give an initial IV bolus dose of amiodarone 5 mg kg-1 after the third defibrillation. Amiodarone can cause thrombophlebitis when injected into a peripheral vein and, ideally, should be delivered via a central vein.
If central venous access is unavailable likely at the time of cardiac arrest and so it has to be given peripherally, flush it liberally with 0. One recent observational study in children showed that ECG resolution and survival to discharge was similar in a group treated with lidocaine instead of amiodarone but the evidence was not sufficiently robust to recommend a change in practice. The dose is 20 mcg kg There is no evidence that atropine has any benefit in asphyxial bradycardia or asystole and its routine use has been removed from the ALS algorithms.
Magnesium This is a major intracellular cation and serves as a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. Magnesium treatment is indicated in children with documented hypomagnesaemia or with polymorphic VT torsade de pointes , regardless of cause.
After shock delivery immediately restart CPR using a ratio of , starting with chest compressions. Do not pause to reassess the rhythm or feel for a pulse. The total pause in chest compressions should be brief and no longer than 5 seconds. Pause briefly to check the monitor.
Resume chest compressions immediately. Give further adrenaline 1 mg IV after alternate shocks i. If organised electrical activity compatible with a cardiac output is seen during a rhythm check, seek evidence of ROSC check for signs of life, a central pulse and end-tidal CO2 if available. If there is ROSC, start post-resuscitation care. If asystole is seen, continue CPR and switch to the nonshockable algorithm. The interval between stopping compressions and delivering a shock must be minimised.

Longer interruptions to chest compressions reduce the chance of a shock restoring a spontaneous circulation. Chest compressions are resumed immediately after delivering a shock without checking the rhythm or a pulse because even if the defibrillation attempt is successful in restoring a perfusing rhythm, it is very rare for a pulse to be palpable immediately after defibrillation.
Give adrenaline if cardiac arrest is confirmed at the next rhythm check. Drugs and advanced airways are still included among ALS interventions, but are of secondary importance to early defibrillation and high quality, uninterrupted chest compressions.
Call resuscitation team. Plan actions before pausing CPR for rhythm analysis and communicate these to the team. This pause in chest compressions should be brief and no longer than 5 seconds. The designated person selects the appropriate energy on the defibrillator and presses the charge button.
If unsure of the correct energy level for a defibrillator choose the highest available energy.
Ensure that the rescuer giving the compressions is the only person touching the patient. After shock delivery immediately restart CPR using a ratio of , starting with chest compressions.
Do not pause to reassess the rhythm or feel for a pulse. The total pause in chest compressions should be brief and no longer than 5 seconds. Pause briefly to check the monitor. Resume chest compressions immediately.
Give further adrenaline 1 mg IV after alternate shocks i.See our website terms. It presents a large, osmotically active, sodium load to an already compromised circulation and brain. Ensure that the rescuer giving the compressions is the only person touching the patient.
This is the more common finding in children.
There are a variety of approaches to airway management during CPR and a stepwise approach based on patient factors and the skills of the rescuer is recommended. A self-inflating bag can be connected to a face mask, tracheal tube, or SGA. Comparison of intraosseous versus central venous vascular access in adults under resuscitation in the emergency department with inaccessible peripheral veins.
Prehospital use in emergency patients of a laryngeal mask airway by ambulance paramedics is a safe and effective alternative for endotracheal intubation.
