Improving Resuscitation Survival Outcomes
Survival from in- or out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains unacceptably low and is the leading cause of death globally. Yet survival rates can dramatically improve with evidence-based strategies and solutions for improving CPR and resuscitation response. This CE webinar series highlights actionable information that can make a difference to all those involved in resuscitation care, including nurses and respiratory therapists.
The Importance of High-quality CPR:
Science and Practice
Kenan A. Kuntsal, BSc, NREMT-P
Current CPR guidelines continue to stress the key components to improving survival rate: A correct compression rate; achieving complete chest wall recoil; providing a sufficient but specific depth of chest compressions; and avoiding the hemodynamic consequences of improper ventilation. This presentation will review the current science of CPR and the role of CPR in cardiac resuscitation based on the AHA 2020 Guidelines. This webinar will show how performing high-quality CPR can achieve the most positive clinical outcomes.
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
Describe the importance of CPR in resuscitation.
Describe the critical components of high-quality CPR.
Describe ways to improve CPR quality in hospitals.
Measure one’s personal ability to perform high-quality CPR.
Debriefing After Cardiac Arrest
Heather Wolfe, MD
Clinical event debriefing adapts learnings from simulation debriefing to allow clinicians time to reflect and collectively learn after significant clinical events. Debriefing provides the opportunity to discuss interactions within the clinical environment to improve performance in the future.
From Field to Floor: Exploring CPR,
ECMO, and Outcomes
Juliann Eigner, RN BSN CCRN
In this webinar you will learn about cutting edge ideas, new technologies, and progressive protocols to help realize higher quality CPR, achieve significantly improved positive outcomes from cardiac arrest, and simultaneously enhance best practices for hospital initiatives.
