The Top 5 Ways to Improve Outcomes from Cardiac Arrest

Learning Objectives

This webinar focuses on essential bedside skills as well as system considerations to improve outcomes from cardiac arrest.  High performance CPR, effective defibrillation, feedback on performance, team training & post arrest care are discussed.  In addition, cutting edge therapies such as mechanical CPR & ECMOwere presented as an option for patients with refractory ventricular fibrillation.

Objectives:

  1. Discuss the components of high performance CPR

  2. Describe techniques for rapid, effective defibrillation

  3. Discuss CPR feedback & team training

  4. Discuss targeted temperature management & post arrest care hemodynamic management

  5. Describe cutting edge therapies including E-CPR for refractory ventricular fibrillation
