Cold debriefings after in-hospital cardiac arrest in an international pediatric resuscitation quality improvement collaborative.

Wolfe HA, Wenger J, Sutton RM, et al. Pediatr Qual Saf. 2020;59(4):e319.

This article describes the use of “cold” debriefings performed more than one day after in-hospital cardiac arrest events at institutions participating in a pediatric resuscitation quality collaborative. Cold debriefings took place in one-third of events; the median time to debriefing was 26 days. The majority of comments arising from the debriefings involved clinical standards, cooperation and communication.
