Learning about quality #CardiacCare

Good and effective CPR at the right depth and rate is one of the essentials to any cardiac arrest survival.

But can we do more for the most life-threatened patients we see?

Four members of staff looked at that very question when they took part in a cardiac arrest bootcamp on Tuesday (8th November), at Luton station.

Attendees got the chance to cover everything from traumatic cardiac arrest and ECGs through to communication skills and scene management. The team also got introduced to an updated cardiac arrest checklist which is to support staff in providing high quality cardiac resuscitation. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates on this in next week’s Need to Know.

Duty Locality Officer Phil Alexander, who attended, said: “It’s an excellent refresher, as you don’t realise how much you’ve forgotten! The training is really informative and a must have for all staff. It’ll make you re-think your management of cardiac arrest.”

Our next cardiac arrest bootcamp will be on Wednesday, 30th November at Newmarket Training Centre from 9.30am until 4.30pm. Click here for full details on what the training includes.
