How Resuscitation Works
This talk uses a case study approach to discuss the need for technical accuracy in resuscitation practice.
This talk uses a case study approach to discuss why resuscitation practitioners should focus upon technical accuracy when resuscitating, focussing on all of the facets of a resuscitation, compression, decompression, trans-thoracic impedance. It suggests that many of the smallest of subtleties can have a dramatic effect on patient survival.
We focus on the physiological effects of Manual Chest Compression and use historical reference to underpin modern techniques.
