Education is a priority for the council, and many nurses will be familiar with its qualification, the Certificate of Resuscitation and Emergency Care (CORE).
Being trained in resuscitation is a bit like having an insurance policy--you hope you won't have to use it, but it's there if you need it.
The inclusion criteria were that the participants had to have been employed in either of the units for more than 6 months, and that they had been exposed to the resuscitation procedure more than twice in order to make sure that the participant had sufficient exposure.
One participant explained: 'Witnessed resuscitation is when you have a patient who collapses in front of you and you are there when the arrest occurs in your presence'.
The Rule of 10 allows the combat prehospital providers at levels I and II echelons of care to easily implement the fluid resuscitation, and then to shift the focus towards the patient's response to the resuscitation in order to dictate the amount of fluid administered over the first 24 hours.
Given that variations in practice exist among different sets of providers, variability in the way care is delivered during the resuscitation is unavoidable.
What are the effects of providing a designated family facilitator to support the family during resuscitation efforts?
Guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care.
Traditionally, the exclusion of family members (FM) from witnessing the resuscitation of a loved one has been justified on a number of grounds (Osuagwu, 1991; Mitchell & Lynch, 1997; Van der Woning, 1999).
To address whether or not to allow FM to observe the resuscitation of a loved one, this paper investigates the arguments for keeping families away during resuscitation and the justification for allowing them to be present.
All of the ZOLL E Series[R] monitor defibrillators used for resuscitation
at UCSD include Real CPR Help[R] real-time feedback; See Thru CPR([R]), industry-unique filtering technology that allows clinicians to view a patient's underlying cardiac rhythm by filtering CPR artifact during resuscitation
efforts; and sidestream and mainstream ETCO2 monitoring capability.
A neonatal satellite meeting was held on the first day, with topics ranging from putting neonatal guidelines into practice, preserving neonatal organs during resuscitation
, and resuscitating the mother and foetus during pregnancy.
