Siddiqui A, Ng E, Burrows C, McLuckie D, Everett T. Cureus. 2019;11:e4376.

This randomized simulation study examined the use of checklists during simulated pediatric cardiac arrests in the surgical setting. Despite low uptake of the checklists, their availability during the simulations was associated with better performance. The authors recommend use of these checklists to enhance performance in rare critical situations.
