Post-Cardiac Arrest Care

The PREP Checklist:

Post Resuscitation Evaluation & Planning

Post-resuscitation care is delivered by many different groups of healthcare providers over many days which can complicate effective and comprehensive post-arrest treatment and management strategies.

 

PURPOSE: Improve clinical care and communication to optimize monitoring, management, team performance, and process of care of patients successfully resuscitated from pediatric cardiac arrest.   

 

At the beginning of each shift, providers will review the PREP checklist and communication form with the clinical team to review, discuss, adjust, and confirm optimal post arrest management and care.
