Pediatric residency training programs were surveyed to assess current methods of educating house staff to manage pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitations. Of the 155 programs responding, 96% provide Basic Life Support training, while 79% offer Advanced Cardiac Life Support training, but only 30% provide ongoing education in the form of mock arrests. In general, the availability of the various forms of resuscitation management instruction was not related to either program size or institution needs. The system of training pediatric residents to manage pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitations at The Johns Hopkins Hospital is outlined.
