Cardiac Arrest in Children: Long-term Health Status and HRQoL

´╗┐Cardiac Arrest in Children: Long-term Health Status and HRQoL

Conclusions


This follow-up study showed that long-term outcome of pediatric CPR is reasonably good. A minority of children surviving CA have long-term impairments on health status and HR-QoL. Prospective long-term outcome research in large homogeneous groups is needed. Further research should also be focusing on long-term psychosocial and neurocognitive functioning and predictors of outcome, since these factors influence the long-term health status and HR-QoL.
