Abstract

This study has shown that cardiopulmonary resuscitation commonly causes minor injuries and the likelihood of such injury increases with the duration of the cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This information should reassure parents and caregivers that basic life support may be instituted without fear of causing significant injury or adversely affecting outcome in the child with cardiopulmonary arrest.
