Maintaining high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) during the transition of care between prehospital providers and pediatric emergency department providers is a challenge, but increases the likelihood of survival for pediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients. The objective of this initiative was to improve high-quality CPR by decreasing interruptions and the length of pauses in compressions.
