Cardiocerebral Resuscitation Tools

In the June issue of JEMS, Jim Keiken, BS, MSM, EMT-P, told you that it might be possible to increase the percentage of cardiac arrest patients walking out of the hospital neurologically intact. And, you were told you could achieve this goal with a change to how your perform CPR. That change is called cardiocerebral resuscitation (CCR), and it has proven to be quite successful in Tuscon, Ariz., Kansas City, Miss. and Rock and Walworth counties in Wisconsin.

If you’re wondering how to implement CCR training or protocols, Keiken has provided a flow chart of steps to perform CCR and a training video for ALS providers.
