Purpose: The purpose of the study is to emphasize the importance of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitation. This resuscitation by paramedic is very effectively performed under the medical direction of the doctors. Methods: The cardiac arrest victim was 4 month old infant. Informed consent from the parents of the infant was received. CPR combined with 150J defibrillation was performed to the 4 month old infant. Results: We reported that the 4 month old infant survived the cardiac arrest. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest infant survived after 150J automated external defibrillator and CPR performance. Conclusion: Specific operative protocol is important because the paramedic can apply the proper manual defibrillator effectively. It is important to extend the work scpoe of the EMT.
