Improving Resuscitation Survival Outcomes
Debriefing After Cardiac Arrest
Heather Wolfe, MD
Assistant Professor of Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
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. Debriefings are categorized by time in relation to the initial event, with “hot” debriefings occurring in the minutes to hours following the event and “cold” debriefings occurring in the days to weeks following an incident. This webinar will focus on how cold briefings can improve resuscitation outcomes based on a recent study across multiple pediatric centers.
Discuss the importance and impact of a data-driven debriefing program after cardiac arrest
Describe how to integrate quantitative data into a cardiac arrest debriefing program
Identify challenges in implementing a cold briefing program

From Field to Floor: Exploring CPR,
ECMO and Outcomes
Juliann Eigner, RN BSN CCRN
Acute Mechanical Circulatory Support
ECMO Program Coordinator
Scripps Health, San Diego CA
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. Plus, walk through real life clinical scenarios to see where progressive hospital programs are including ECMO and the relationship with high-quality CPR. Lastly you will learn how refined choreography and defined roles are critical to efficient resuscitation including streamlining with bundles of care and pit crew roles.
Discuss the importance of high-quality CPR and progressive protocols used to improve outcomes from cardiac arrest
Describe how ECMO could significantly increase cardiac arrest outcomes
