Many moons ago it was common practice that as soon as we had a pulse back from an arrested patient we would throw them in the ambulance and drive fast to hospital with little, if any, further management…
This has changed and now there are a number of goals we try to achieve prior too and during transport. This podcast is about the management of the post-arrest patient and why we do what we do in these situations.
I hope you enjoy it and as always feedback is appreciated.
AMBOFOAM Arrest PODCAST Pt 1. TUne in and listen up to Rob!
Welcome again to the AmboFOAM podcast. This is part one of two episodes on cardiac arrest. These podcasts are again designed for the new paramedic or paramedic student. This time we are discussing cardiac arrest, primarily why we do what we do at an arrest. Part two will deal with the post-arrest patient and why we do what we do with them.
Please feel free to drop me a line with any comments or questions you may have.
