With regards to pediatric resuscitation, are we to use the pediatric setting on the zoll for only less than 8 years old, or for >30 days to onset puberty? I was reading old Q&A for this, and it was made to seem like we only use the pediatric setting for less than 8 on the zoll, and anything older than that use the adult setting
Per the ALS-PCS, for those 30 days to <8 years:
- If you utilize manual defibrillation, you should use 2J/kg, and then 4J/kg (pediatric dosing)
- If you utilize semi-automatic defibrillation, you should use manufacturer settings, +/- pediatric attenuator cables if carried by your Service.
Per the ALS-PCS, for those 8 years or older:
For both manual and semi-automatic defib you are to utilize adult defibrillation dosages._x000D_
