  • What’s your dose of epinephrine and why?
  • High-dose epinephrine improves outcome from pediatric cardiac arrest Goetting MG et al, Ann Emerg Med 1991;20:22-26
    • Compared a prospectively treated high-dose epinephrine (HDE) study group with historical cohorts receiving conventional dose (SDE) with respect to the return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)
  • High-dose epinephrine improves outcome from pediatric cardiac arrest Goetting MG et al, Ann Emerg Med 1991;20:22-26
    • 20 consecutive patients treated for cardiac arres who failed ROSC after 2 doses of SDE (0.01 mg/kg) five min apart were given HDE (o.2 mg/kg) in 1:10 000 for infants and 1:1000 for older patients
  • High-dose epinephrine improves outcome from pediatric cardiac arrest Goetting MG et al, Ann Emerg Med 1991;20:22-26
    • Iv line was flushed after each dose
    • atropine 0.01 mg/kg was given for bradycardia and asystole with each SDE
    • sodium bicarbonate 1 mEq/kg was administered between each SDE
    • all patients ventilated with 100 % O2
  • High-dose epinephrine improves outcome from pediatric cardiac arrest Goetting MG et al, Ann Emerg Med 1991;20:22-26
    • ROSC was defined as
      • a supraventricular rhythm with palpable pulses or
      • an invasive systolic pressure greater than 60 mm Hg
  • High-dose epinephrine improves outcome from pediatric cardiac arrest Goetting MG et al, Ann Emerg Med 1991;20:22-26
    • historic controls -
      • 20 consecutive children treated by the same author over 12 months
      • with witnessed arrests,
      • receiving ACLS within 5 min, and

    • 14 survivors:
      • 8 survived to discharge:
        • 6 regained pre-arrest neurologic level
          • 3 developmentally normal 6 - 17 mo later (pulmonary contusions, hypovolemia, septic shock)
          • 3 regained severe pre-existing cognitive level
        • 2 with global cortical damage
  • What are these new agents and when do we use them?
  • New Guidelines
    • amiodarone
    • procainamide
    • lidocaine
  • Amiodarone
    • Inhibits outward K current - prolongs QT
    • Inhibits Na channels - slows and conduction (prolongs QRS)
    • Non-competitive inhibitor of alpha- and beta-adrenergic receptors
      • secondary to sympathetic block - vasodilatation and AV nodal suppression Non-competitive
  • Amiodarone
    • Most commonly used for ectopic atrial tachycardia or junctional ectopic tachycardia post cardiac surgery
    • 5 mg/kg loading infusion over minutes to 15 mg/kg/day
    • hypotension is the main adverse effect
  • Procainamide
    • Sodium channel blocking agent - prolongs refractory period and depresses conduction velocity - prolonged QT and PR intervals
    • effective for atrial fibrillation and flutter, SVT, JET, and perfusing VT
  • Procainamide
    • Must be given by slow infusion to avoid heart block, myocardial depression, and prolonged QT
    • 15 mg/kg over 30 to 60 min
      • stop infusion if hypotension or QRS widens to > 50 % of baseline
  • Lidocaine
    • Not effective for ventricular arrhythmias in infants or children unless associated with focal myocardial ischemia
    • may be considered in shock-resistant VF or pulseless VT
    • 1 mg/kg bolus then 20 to 50 ug/kg/min
  • Pediatric Epinephrine Dosing High High Repeat Doses 0.1 ml/kg 1:1000 0.1 ml/kg 1:10000 0.1 mg/kg 1:1000 0.01 mg/kg 1:10000 First Dose High Standard Asystole/ Pulseless Arrest ET IV, IO
  • Epinephrine
    • Alpha and beta-adrenergic properties
      • Alpha-adrenergic vasoconstriction
      • Increases aortic diastolic pressure and coronary perfusion
  • High Dose Epinephrine
    • 10 to 20 times the standard dose
    • A dangerous dose in one patient may be lifesaving in another
      • Improved survival and neurological outcome
      • Increased myocardial consumption and post arrest hyperadrenergic state
  • New Guidelines: Epinephrine
    • The conventional dose of epinephrine is recommended for second and subsequent doses
    • Higher doses may be considered
  • New Guidelines: Bradycardia
    • Atropine is recommended in the treatment of symptomatic bradycardia caused by AV block or increased vagal tone
  • New Guidelines: SVT
    • Vagal maneuvers introduced
    • Verapamil remains contraindicated in infants
    • Amiodarone
    • Procainamide
  • New Guidelines: Stable VT
    • Amiodarone
    • Procainamide or lidocaine considered alternative agents
  • New Guidelines: Pulseless VT/VF
    • Defibrillation 2 J/kg, 4 J/kg, 4 J/kg
    • Epinephrine
    • Amiodarone
  • Amiodarone Infuse over 20-60 min 5 mg/kg IV/IO (15mg/kg/day) Perfusing Tachycardias Bolus Hypotension 5 mg/kg IV/IO Pulseless VF/VT Remark Dose
  • Procainamide Infuse over 30 – 60 min 15 mg/kg IV/IO Perfusing Tachycardias Remarks Dose
