Evaluating Ventilations in Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest and the Impact on Survival

Survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest continues to be a benchmark for EMS Agencies. Focuses on chest compression quality and early defibrillation have led to substantial improvements in return of spontaneous circulation and thousands more cardiac arrest survivors being able to leave the hospital.

Join this month's PCRF Journal Club to discuss a paper that evaluates the size of BVM used and its impact on cardiac arrest survival. Register now!

The ABCs: More Than a Mnemonic

Checklists have become a part of every EMS provider’s day. We use them to check in our ambulances, ensure we have all our equipment, and help us prepare for low-frequency skills. However, can a checklist help us perform better in the field?

Join this month’s Education Journal Club as we review a study that evaluated if using an easy-to-remember checklist can improve cardiac arrest management. Register now!
