Successful outcome following cardiopulmonary arrest in children remains low even with all of the advances in CPR methods and drug therapies. The pathophysiologic principles as they apply to pediatric CPR are discussed along with newer methods, including the use of intraosseous access during resuscitation. The controversies regarding epinephrine dosing, the use of sodium bicarbonate, calcium chloride, and glucose are reviewed. Other specific pediatric problems such as treatment for SVT with adenosine, neonatal resuscitation, and congenital heart disease also are discussed.
