Cardiorespiratory arrest in children (out of hospital)

By Hilary Writer

Abstract

Cardiorespiratory arrest outside hospital occurs in approximately 1/10,000 children a year in resource-rich countries, with two thirds of arrests occurring in children under 18 months of age. Approximately 40% of cases have undetermined causes, including sudden infant death syndrome . Of the rest, 20% are caused by trauma, 10% by chronic disease, and 6% by pneumonia
