Pediatric cardiac arrests, either in- or out of the hospital are rare and yet crucial events. Evidence based treatment guidelines intend to guide high-quality CPR and post-arrest-care for our small patients. Unfortunately, significant lack of evidence to support pediatric guidelines has been repeatedly identified by ILCOR. Pediatric CPR registries might offer relevant data to help to close these existing knowledge gaps.

To improve the quality of post-resuscitation care across Europe the ERC is joining its sister associations in on a post-cardiac arrest management (POSTCAM) programme.
This is an initiative led by the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACVC) of the ESC. The ACVC the European Resuscitation Council, the European Society of Emergency Medicine (EUSEM) and the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) are joining forces in this project.
Among the targets of the POSTCAM programme it is to explore current standard of care across Europe related to post-resuscitation care and reduce variation within and between countries and centres based on adherence to defined quality indicators.
To achieve this, a survey is planned which will be disseminated among healthcare professionals treating patient with CA all over Europe. This is going to be accomplished with the aid of national representatives for sister associations.
The survey will be finalised during an online workshop which is to be run on June-10 2021. National representatives from all national councils affiliated to sister associations are invited to this workshop.
