I truly believe a large part our success in receiving ROSC was due to the time saved using the Handtevy Method/Box. Our crew was able to immediately calculate the patient’s weight with the age given on the run report. Having the initial drug dosages in our heads prior to arrival aided tremendously in our resuscitation efforts (no calculations needed). The convenience and simplicity of the Handtevy allowed for our crew to perform expeditiously and save valuable time. Having all the equipment/dosages pre-determined allowed us to perform to our fullest potential, and not second-guess our efforts in the heat of the moment. We did get ROSC during transport, and never lost it from that point on. The Handtevy Box is an extremely valuable addition to our units, and surely the best possible tool to assist in critical pediatric patient care/management.
