Unlearning what you thought you knew about cardiac arrest requires challenging our traditional way of thinking. Do you defibrillate all patients in V-Fib? Give Epi? Stop compressions to intubate? Ventilate 10-12 times a minute? Not at Rialto Fire Department. In fact, we don't care if you ever ventilate. Nothing trumps compressions - nothing! We have changed the way we approach cardiac arrest and it has resulted in a large jump in ROSC rates and an 83% Utstein rate. Join us, Fire Chief Sean Grayson and EMS Chief Joe Powell, as we describe the journey to significant sweeping changes in our cardiac arrest approach and our culture.
The standards for CPR have been published, and we know the benchmarks, but how do we know if we are meeting them? Until recently, it has been difficult to assess CPR quality and provide timely feedback to our field providers. Modern defibrillator technology has made this possible and an essential component for enhancing quality improvement in cardiac arrests. Join Dr. Clayton Kazan, medical director, and Nicole Steeneken, M.Ed., EMS quality improvement program director, as they describe their experiences with using technology to improve CPR performance at Los Angeles County Fire Department.
A careful curriculum design process can help to ensure positive outcomes when providers care for obstetric patients who deliver in the field.
