The ALS algorithm brings the algorithm for recognizing circulatory arrest and also for initiating cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a child with malignant arrhythmia, which is considered as less common cause in pediatric emergency medicine. The algorithm is based on the 2021 ERC Guidelines for CPR in children. What I consider to be very beneficial about this algorithm is that a lot of useful information is included in the justifications of the individual answers. Moreover, substantial space is devoted to the specifics of ensuring access to the vascular system in children with cardiac arrest.
