Philips M5072A MSRP
Cardiac arrest in children is an unfortunate and traumatic event..an event that an estimated 16,000 American children suffer each year.
Tragically, only 5 to 10% of patients survive out‐of‐hospital arrests. Of those survivors, many suffer severe neurological problems. Survival statistics for pediatric cardiac arrests occurring in the hospital are better, with an estimated 27% of patients surviving to discharge and 65% of them leaving with good neurological outcomes.
Some pediatric cardiac arrests are sudden and unexpected, especially those that occur outside the hospital. Warning signs can be absent or go unrecognized. Pediatric arrests often occur as a complication or progression of respiratory failure, circulatory shock, or both.
Although the cause may vary, the goal is the same: immediately reestablish effective cardiac output and deliver oxygen to tissues with high‐quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
By being able to deliver an immediate shock using the Philips Onsite Defibrillator with a M5072A Child pads you are improving the odds of a positive outcome.
