Presented by Dr. Gordon Ewy, Professor of Medicine (Cardiology), at the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center in Tucson. Dr. Ewy is one of the national pioneers of this life-saving intervention and was part of the inspiration behind Dr. Bean bringing this intervention to Dane County. This conference is appropriate for medical professionals and emergency cardiac care providers.
At the end of the presentation, attendees will:
• Appreciate the magnitude of the problem of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).
• Describe how one recognizes primary and secondary cardiac arrest.
• Present the evidence that chest compression only CPR (CO-CPR) should be provided by all who witness primary cardiac arrest.
• Explain the rationale for the “community” approach of Cardiocerebral Resuscitation.
• Explain the rationale for the “EMS” approach of Cardiocerebral Resuscitation.
• Explain the rationale for the “hospital” component of Cardiocerebral Resuscitation.
• Recall the survival rates of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest using various approaches.
• Present the evidence of why it is important to know the survival rate of patients with OHCA in your hospital or community.
