BASIC LIFE SUPPORT - PEDIATRIC
Basic life support (BLS) is the fundamental approach to saving lives following cardiac arrest.  Primary aspects of BLS include immediate recognition of sudden cardiac arrest and activation of the emergency response system, early cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and rapid defibrillation with an automated external defibrillator.

Treatment with low-to-standard dose dual combination therapy of blood pressure (BP)-lowering drugs is more effective than standard-dose monotherapy and does not increase withdrawals due to adverse events, a recent study has shown.

Untreated white coat hypertension (WCH), but not treated white coat effect (WCE), may increase the risk for cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality, suggest the results of a systematic review and meta-analysis. Out-of-office blood pressure (BP) monitoring is thus important in the diagnosis and management of hypertension.

Risk factors for 1-year mortality in heart failure (HF) patients significantly differ between those with and without chronic kidney disease (CKD), especially with regard to the use of beta-blockers or diuretics at discharge, according to a study. This suggests that these patients may benefit from individualized therapies.
