Errors and error-producing conditions during a simulated, prehospital, pediatric cardiopulmonary arrest.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
Simulations of prehospital pediatric cardiopulmonary arrest uncovered many potential errors. Most notably, medication errors related to the correct weight-based dosing of epinephrine were common. This mistake can have serious consequences and warrants further efforts to mitigate this risk.
