Children and infants represent a growing population of patients treated by anesthesiologists outside of the operating room. As treatment outside the operating room increases, focus on the prevention and management of emergency situations becomes even more important. While pediatric guidelines for resuscitation and emergency algorithms have many similarities to those used with adults, it is important to recognize the important differences in medications and treatment practices for children and infants. In addition, a growing focus of pediatric resuscitation is the early detection of at-risk individuals before an emergency arises. This chapter provides a resource for pediatric resuscitation based on the American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care, most recently updated in 2015.
