WHERE You Live Shouldn’t Determine IF You Live: EMS Strategies for Improving Cardiac Arrest Survival
This webcast will focus on strategies that can be used by the EMS community to improve survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
The American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) are based on evidence evaluation from the 2010 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR 2010), of which the American Heart Association was a founding member.
During this presentation, you’ll learn:
- Evidence based strategies for improving survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest
- AHA programs and products for use by the Emergency Medical Services community
- How to develop a localized action plan to improve outcomes
The recommendations in the AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC confirm the safety and effectiveness of many approaches, acknowledge that other approaches may not be optimal, and recommend new treatments that have undergone evidence evaluation. Our science, products and programs are designed to help you increase the probability of prompt bystander CPR and improve the quality of resuscitation provided by rescuers.
